Drowning in Data and Starving for Insights - Episode #3: Application of Topological Data Analysis to Telemetry
Data networks are complex systems with plenty of counters and other data collection mechanisms built into them. Topological Data Analysis (TDA) techniques can be used to provide system breakdowns information or early warning signals in real-time. TDA can also be used for exploratory analysis and can help data center administrators and customers solve the big data dilemma, the tradeoff between data abundance and data scarcity. Administrators do not need all information from all components all the time.
