In our view database archiving has been under-utilised for years. We
think that that is now changing and we believe that this process will
accelerate, thanks to Hadoop and the cloud. All the leading vendors in
the market now offer cloud-based archiving and they all offer Hadoop.
Both of these represent general-purpose solutions. It may make sense,
if you have an Oracle database to archive onto another instance of
Oracle using tiered storage but not many companies have a homogeneous
database environment. Wouldn’t it make more sense to archive
Oracle and SQL Server and DB2 and anything else all onto Hadoop or
into the cloud (or both)? We expect Hadoop to become the platform of
choice for on-premise database archival and cloud otherwise, and it will
be those companies that offer solutions that support these options that
will be most successful.
