Mike Tanner, president and CEO of Hitachi Data Systems Federal Corp., has said the adoption of tiered storage tools and software-defined platforms can help federal agencies address the challenges posed by big data.

Tanner wrote in an article published Thursday on FedTech Magazine that agencies can categorize data based on security level through the adoption of network function virtualization and software-defined networks.

He said SDN aims to help manage agencies’ legacy information technology infrastructures and provide them an opportunity to adopt cloud computing, mobile platforms and other emerging technologies.

Tanner cited tiered storage platforms as designed to help agencies facilitate data migration.

“The automation and effectiveness of these storage settings ease federal chief technology officers’ and chief information officers’ jobs by synthesizing databases through analytics, thus easing the challenge big data presents,” he added.
