Rethinking How Data is Stored and Processed Brings Scale and Speed to Modern Data-Intensive Applications

In this contributed article, Prasad Venkatachar, Sr Director – Products & Solutions at Pliops, discusses how modern data-intensive applications that include E-commerce, Social Networking, Messaging, and online gaming services heavily depend on Key-Value stores. All these business-critical applications demand state-of-the-art data storage and processing infrastructure to serve the data at high throughput with low latency and highly fault-tolerant and yet cost-effective. To achieve this blend of high performance and cost effectiveness, we must fundamentally reimagine how data is stored and processed at scale and speed. This article will cover how organizations can accomplish these design objectives and architect state-of-the-art data storage and processing infrastructure.
