I work in this industry for almost 25 years, having participated to some stories helped companies to move from insignificant position to key player but this time, it's different, it will be huge.

one of the iguazio key differentiator
It's important to understand that the iguazio solution is not about storage and not about applications but about the integration of the two which make things a different, really different. And by integration I don't mean again a new better simpler platform that leverages classic components and layers. I should say that iguazio is a new animal, something you didn't see in the past, with the mission to deliver the simplest, fastest and lowest cost platform to store and compute data dedicated to new data intensive and centric applications.
Imagine a gigantic data pool, built from a transparent memory/storage hierarchy and controlled by a real-time data catalogue, that offers a common API layer to provide real-time, scalability and unified data access.
Iguazio architecture is super comprehensive able to integrate new data services that will be unveiled in the future by many players, organisations or vendors. You can name this an Unified Data Platform and this is iguazio. In term of speed and performance figures, iguazio beats everything you have in mind:
- Under 100 microseconds,
- 2M ops/sec per node,
- 60x S3 ops/sec vs. others, 100x stream put/sec vs Kinesis per shard, 15x file IOPs vs all Flash NAS, 25x NoSQL ops/sec vs Cassandra or DynamoDB,
- 12GB/s per node,
- 10PB per rack,
- starting below $0.03/GB per month
I invite you to try iguazio, you will love it, no doubt, you will never uninstall it and competition has started to have tough times and nights... Believe me. 2017 will be interesting in that data processing segment.
