2 Preamble Classical Storage metrics Storage capacity: multiple of bytes (TB: TiB= ) Transfer rate on a medium: Mb/s or MB/s Other metrics: Sequential vs Random R/W speed, IOPS 2

3 Preamble Classical Storage metrics Storage capacity: multiple of bytes (TB: TiB= ) Transfer rate on a medium: Mb/s or MB/s Other metrics: Sequential vs Random R/W speed, IOPS The Big Data Challenge : 4 V s [ Volume Velocity Variety Veracity ] Also relevant for Luxembourg s research priorities Large number of diverse data sources to integrate Not just about storage capacity! 2
