Storage has always been, as we say in the South, a "big hairy deal" in IT. It's been expensive, temperamental, and always out of date -- seemingly from the moment of purchase. But that ...

re: Wellbeing - Our investor is all over it at the moment.  Apparently, my newborn, is very likely to live to over 100...i.e. over 100 will become the norm.  He's looking at investing in it.

Thanks, Will! This was very enlightening :)

@willc7, I think that Dell is doing what many companies are: They're working on tiered storage with a mix of RAM, SSD and HDD. I think we're going to see that approach until RAM costs come down dramatically.

Well everyone, we've just passed the one-hour mark. So let's all thank Will for his time and let him go back to the task of efficiently discovering our secrets. Thanks for being a great guest, Will! And if you want to keep talking by all means...

Going back to storage.  HDD are much more expensive, in terms of energy, to run than things like RAM etc, would be interesting to see if the likes of Dell are trying to develop efficent storage solutions specifically for Big Data.

@willc7  Ha! And fortunately, Curt lives right near Orlando where DisneyWorld is.
Wednesday January 16, 2013 10:00:07 AM
@Curt  Well I think you and I are in the same boat. I'm fairly certain that someone at Columbia University is writing a paper about my brain.
Wednesday January 16, 2013 10:00:05 AM
@curtis Walt Disney had a great solution for that.

@Will, the preferences are as varied as the type of data they deal with. I went to a Meetup in Brighton towards the end of last year, hosted by an organization using big data to monitor social reaction to brands... in about three years they...

@saulsherry  Our health insurance companies in the US aren't quite that generous. They're more likely to charge you for an operation that you didn't get in the first place.

@Sara, at the rate I'm going, science is getting their crack at my body long before I'm dead...
Wednesday January 16, 2013 9:57:00 AM
I like both the opt-in option and the idea of using dummy data work on some of these computational challenges. I'm donating my whole body to science, me. Maybe they'll be able to make sense of all the things that are wrong with me after I'm...

@saul you speak to alot of people in big data, what is their preferred solution for the hosting of a Hadoop cluster?
Wednesday January 16, 2013 9:55:45 AM
Maybe not here in the UK... but in more monetized healthcare environments, could it work as a kickback? Opt in to share your data for 10% off your next major operation!
Wednesday January 16, 2013 9:54:25 AM
@saul, that's brilliant!!

I think patients would volunteer their data to be mapped as well, if they were asked.
Wednesday January 16, 2013 9:53:58 AM
Will, I was having a discussion on that the other day. An opt in solution, such as we have for organ donors... just a check box saying you allow the anonymized use of your data.
