Virtual Data Lakes
A virtual data lake, for Komprise called the Global File Index, is a granular, flexible and searchable index across file, object and cloud data storage spanning petabytes of unstructured data. A virtual data lake has been called a metadata lake, allowing organizations to find and execute Smart Data Workflows that enable Big Data, AI, and ML projects.
Research has shown that with Big Data projects, up to 80% or more time is spent on finding the right data and getting it out of data centers and cloud infrastructure. With Komprise, powerful metadata-based search and indexing technology automates the process of finding unstructured data based on your specific criteria. This capability allows organizations to dynamically build virtual data lakes across storage silos on the fly so they can better manage and reuse your data for AI and ML.
Komprise Deep Analytics lets you build specific queries to find the files you need, tag it to build real-time virtual data lakes that the entire organization can use, without having to first move the data.
