A lot of the data was distributed throughout various geographical locations, which presented a problem in terms of security. The most significant challenge was the lack of available technology. Data access was needed to support geographically dispersed business units across multiple countries.
There’s a certain beauty to being able to access data in such a large volume that you can’t access anything else. In the short time I’ve been doing this work, I’ve been surprised by the number of IT personnel I’ve encountered who don’t even understand what the phrase “distributed data access” means.
One of the most common excuses we see is that they dont have enough computers with a data connection. They don’t know how to access their own data, or really even what that means. It’s not uncommon to see people saying they dont know what a distributed network is because they dont have a computer with a data connection. Of course this is just another excuse that they don’t know what they want.
It is true that computer manufacturers dont make computers with data connections. They make computers that store data on a hard drive, so that when they download a file it is automatically available for download. Thats it. There is no need to have a data connection to download a file to a computer, which is what most people think of as a computer.
The same goes for the Internet. If you cant see the Internet from your house, you can’t use it. This is because most people don’t have computers with data connections, and they use the Internet. I have a laptop that can connect to the Net, but I use the laptop’s Ethernet ports to connect to the Internet.
Data connection of the internet is not limited to the house. A lot of people connect to the Net through their phones. The Net is not limited to only being around your house. A lot of people use their phones as a computer too, but not all phones have all the data connections that a computer would have. If you use your phone as a computer, it can be limited to just a few data connections.
The Net is only about 3.6 million square feet of data. That’s over twice the size of the entire city of Denver. That’s also only about three times the size of our entire city. That’s not even remotely enough for a company to use all of it.
The iPhone is not the only device that has issues with data. Most of the devices, like the Nokia N9 that I use, are fairly limited in the data they can handle. The iPhone 6 can handle data connections that are as much as 6,000 times greater than the N9 can handle. In other words, the N9 is limited to a few hundred times more data than the iPhone 6.
In order to be successful in this new distributed environment, you need to think big, and you need to be able to get the data you need from a broad range of sources. In the old days, you could get the data you needed from a few key sources, but now you need to get the data from a variety of sources and do so in such a way that it only uses a fraction of the bandwidth available in your network.
The new N9 uses more bandwidth than the iPhone 6, so you don’t need to worry about how much data you’re using. Instead, you use the new network to get the data you need. And the N9 supports a vast range of data sources, including the Facebook, eBay, and LinkedIn data sets.
