In Pictures: 8 real-world Big Data deployments

The amount of data in the world doubles every 18 months. Here's a look at eight real-world big data deployments in a variety of industries.

NARA Electronic Records Archive

The National Archive and Records Administration (NARA) is the official record keeper of the U.S. It manages 142 TB (and growing) of information, which represents more than 7 billion objects, including records from across the federal agency ecosystem, Congress and several presidential libraries. The records that are digitized exist in more than 4,800 different formats. NARA is also in the process of digitizing more than four million cubic feet of traditional archival holdings. By 2016, 95 percent of the electronically archived information must be available to researchers. NARA has built the Electronic Records Archive (ERA) as a "system of systems" to perform the various archival functions and records management governed by different legal frameworks.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
