Zeta Architecture

What Does Zeta Architecture Mean?

The Zeta architecture is an enterprise architecture that offers a scalable way to integrate data for a business. Various components of the architecture, when properly deployed, help to reduce the complexity of systems and distribute data more efficiently.


Techopedia Explains Zeta Architecture

The components of Zeta architecture include a distributed file system, real-time data storage and a pluggable compute model/execution engine, as well as data containers, enterprise applications and resource management tools. All of these are molded into a sophisticated data-handling system that serves enterprise goals. The Zeta architecture is so named because “z” is the sixth letter of the Greek alphabet, and the visualized concept of this architecture has a hexagon shape.

Some commentary on the Zeta architecture explains that the enterprise world has not gone far enough in optimizing data processing. This architecture can help by working with data traffic volumes and enabling administrators to do more to make data delivery more efficient. For example, Zeta architecture applications can help with log shipping or with the complex routing of log data. Some IT analysts characterize the Zeta architecture as having “fewer moving parts” and argue that this type of system helps with the dynamic allocation of resources.
