Hello, I am new to the world of big data and am doing research to understand and hopefully implement a data lake solution for my company. I am looking to build a data lake with a 25 TB Platform. I do not see anywhere on how I can estimate the costs of this structure to submit to upper-management in order to determine feasibility of the project. Can anyone help me estimate the costs of the entire structure. A ballpark estimate would be fine as well. Any guidance or links towards any useful information would be greatly appreciated as well.

I am looking to use Hadoop as a new way to store data for my company. Before I can delve into the details of this project, there are several questions I need to get answered. For example, we currently have a Microsoft database, is it possible to implement a data lake and create a hybrid type solution with Hadoop? Or would it be easier to just start over with Hadoop? Second, What tools are available for security? How do we make sure the data ingestion is secure and the data is high quality? Also what are some tools for data analysis and data mining using Hadoop? Sorry if these qiestions are general, I am pretty new to this software. Any Answers are greatly appreciated and any links or literature to help me on this topic would be helpful as well.
