Enterprises are wrangling a mountain of data on a mole hill of compute and storage resources. In an attempt to solve this problem, IT departments have begun to explore Big Data solutions such as Apache Hadoop. But for many businesses, the need for technical expertise and support often overshadows the lure of free do-it-yourself applications, especially when there are critical IT systems at stake. And once collected, how can data be effectively leveraged into actionable insights?
CenturyLink has the answer. Our Big Data as a-Service provides potentially unlimited resources in a high-performance computing cluster and simplifies management with the assistance of a dedicated team of Data Science experts and Managed Cloudera Hadoop.
We begin the engagement with our Data-to-Decisions Workshops, where our expert Big Data Architects collaborate with the customer's management team, aligning business and technology objectives to deliver a pilot Data Platform scope and Phased Roadmap.
Storage, processing and management components are then deployed on Bare Metal Cloud servers — a flexible, efficient, scalable environment for processing data — and delivered via CenturyLink’s secure network and infrastructure. Read what 451 Research has to say about our comprehensive solution.
Compute and storage are isolated to ensure a high level of performance for compute-intensive workloads or “batch” jobs needing bursts of compute power for a short time.

Our certified Data Scientists and Big Data Engineers assist with conceptualization and implementation. We provide a dedicated team to help formulate, deliver and support the solution according to each customer's business and technology objectives.
Big data applications demand the highest performance in computing power, with sporadic and unpredictable surges. In many cases, the volume of users and data ingested grow at a faster rate than physical hardware can be scaled. This creates increased workload demands on existing infrastructure causing overall degradation of user experience and data processing.
Enterprises amass reams of data every day, and the expectation to access and process data in real-time has become the norm. Meanwhile, the very nature of business data consumption is evolving. Organizations need to combine old and new data from a broad range of sources, interact with that data in multiple ways, aggregate and analyze that data intelligently, and rapidly iterate on the results.
Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the top drivers for the pursuit of Big Data by organizations today. Analysts predict there will be 28 billion IoT connected devices in use by 2020 worldwide, with a $1.7US trillion economic value. That amount of data represents an order of magnitude greater than anything previously approached, in terms of both scale and value.
