Cloudwick now manages more than 50,000 Big Data clusters on AWS

The concept of data lakes still generates many looks of puzzlement and even some of skepticism among IT specialists within the corporate world. But make no mistake: Data lakes are the future of data storage and analytics.

While it is true that data lakes have had some hiccups in their development, the technology is rapidly maturing. Many of the initial claims that data lakes could not actually solve the full class of problems that was claimed for them as being theoretically possible are now being fully addressed by the extensions of software systems like Hadoop. And there are now a number of individual firms throughout the country that have amassed an impressive track record of using data lakes to dramatically lower costs while increasing, a thousand-fold, the knowledge discovery capabilities of a wide cross section of businesses.

Cloudwick is leading the way in the implementation of data lakes

And one name stands above all others in the implementation of data lakes for the corporate intelligence mission. Cloudwick is one of the only firms that possesses both an Advanced Consulting Partner and a Big Data Competency certification with Amazon’s AWS for data lake services. This once-speculative area of computer science and Big Data management is rapidly becoming the go-to means for corporations across many industries to optimize their business intelligence programs. And Cloudwick is leading the way.

Cloudwick currently manages more than 50,000 Big Data clusters on Amazon’s AWS service. And this extremely high volume of work has allowed Cloudwick to develop a rock-solid 3-step protocol for the migration of corporate data from legacy systems to a cloud-based data lake apparatus.

Cloudwick has largely eliminated the kinks and shortcomings that were once associated with going to data lake storage. Now, all of the benefits of this novel data structure, including the ability to rapidly store data, the ability to expand the domain of business intelligence by many orders of magnitude and the ability to run sophisticated machine learning systems over the top of these data sets with performance that is increased by a factor of thousands of times, are available to businesses across the nation.
