Comparing Storage Platforms for Big Data Applications

A massive shift is underway in data analytics. Workloads and applications are moving away from the Hadoop File System (HDFS) and towards more scalable and performant data storage platforms. In this paper, we will briefly touch on why this shift has taken place and compare several storage options for modern data analytics.
