Big Data using Hadoop stack has been gaining acceptance widely. Also, organizations which create and store more transactional data in digital form can collect more accurate and detailed performance information on everything. RAID-based storage systems have huge storage capacity but not necessarily what Big Data requires and RAID based systems cannot protect data from loss.
