In today's edition of "ExtraHop simplifies complex problems so you don't have to deal with them," we tackle Dave McCrory's theory of data gravity.

The short version? Data likes to be with other data, the more context the better.

Anyone looking to perform analysis on large datasets—especially using cloud-based analytics services—needs to understand this concept and its implications.

We put together this 5-minute video to illustrate the theory of data gravity and show you how ExtraHop solves this problem with Addy, our new cloud-based machine learning service. Take a look!
