When customers ask me what type of cloud they should use to manage Big Data, I answer: It depends. What do you want to use the cloud for—storage, synchronization, analysis, integration, aggregation? And, does the data contain sensitive information? How large are the files? Do you need to access the data constantly, or only once a week? The answers to these questions can help pinpoint the cloud deployment that’s right for your particular data needs, to deliver the optimum business agility.
