No matter what type of project we do, there is one question that always pops-up and triggers a sequence of discussions: ‘where do we host our big data platform?’. Within this whitepaper we address this question by comparing the most commonly used types of hosting solutions: on premises, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Hadoop as a Service (HaaS).
The different hosting options are introduced first and compared on a number of meaningful characteristics. Given these characteristics we introduce a decision tree that can help with the selection of a suitable infrastructure strategy for your big data platform. In the end it is a complex decision which entails more factors than described in this whitepaper. Nevertheless, we hope it provides you with some useful insights which can help you when choosing the right solution for your organization. Download the whitepaper using the form below.
