What is Data Fabric?
Cold Data Warm Data Hot Data
Data Fabric is not an application or a piece of software. It is a strategic approach towards data and storage. It is focused on how to store, manage, transfer and maintain data. This covers a much wider spectrum including but not limited to on-premise systems, offsite cloud hosted systems, data backups and archival, and other silos.
Organisations can better plan and manage their data, by not being limited to a single cluster view. One of the better ways to manage it, is by classifying the data into:
Cold Data: old archived data
Warm Data: data that is a few days/weeks old
Hot Data: newly arrived data
