EMC Isilon to enable 2.5 X capacity increase and cut expense by 50%

March 8, 2015 0 comments

EMC Isilon innovations claims to help customers eliminate storage silos and provide simpler ways to store and manage data so they can focus efforts toward gaining insights and value from their data.

The new Isilon HD400 platform allows customers to scale their Data Lake Foundation to an unprecedented 50PB within a single cluster. This platform is ideal for customers who require a powerful, scalable, high-capacity platform to store between 2PB and 50PB. This capacity is ideal for Deep Archiving, Disaster Recovery and for building out a high-capacity Data Lake Foundation. Further, the extremely dense (3.2PB/ rack) HD400 will help reduce operational expenses including power, cooling and datacenter floor space expense by 50%.

In addition to the new HD400 platform node, the new features in the OneFS 7.2 operating system now supports integrated Hadoop management tools, HDFS 2.3 and HDFS 2.4 and enhanced security and authentication features for mission critical environments. Support for OpenStack Swift enables next gen workloads and adds simultaneous object, file and Hadoop access to the same in the Data Lake, eliminating islands of storage, reducing complexity and costs.

As the volume and sources of data expand exponentially, traditional techniques to store, manage and analyze information are proving to be too expensive and slow to handle the massive data volumes modern enterprises produce today. Many organizations are also challenged by the proliferation of inefficient storage silos across their enterprises that are difficult to manage and protect.

Adding further stress to their IT infrastructure, competitive pressures are driving businesses to adopt next-generation applications to maximize business outcomes. In addition, enterprises understand that just storing data does not add business value unless they are able to cross-correlate data from multiple sources and gain insight from the data.

According to the EMC ‘State of Big Data’ survey conducted in collaboration with IDG, 56% of IT decisions makers in India find the current business environment challenging. IT is now viewed as a strategic enabler to grow business and better connect with customers and the role of big data has emerged as of primary importance with 49% agreeing that their decisions are based on Data Analytics. 34% believe that analyzing data from diverse sources is one of the key challenges that can be addressed through Big Data and 31% feel it can help organizations in making informed strategic decisions. However, despite acknowledging the significance of big data, only 3% of Indian IT decision makers rated the analytical capabilities in their organizations as world-class.

“With EMC Isilon innovations we are enabling organizations to consolidate their unstructured data and implement a highly efficient and flexible Data Lake Foundation for their enterprise that readily supports traditional and next-generation workloads and applications. These new Isilon products strengthen the enterprise-grade data lake foundation with significantly expanded storage capacity, support for new workloads, and enhanced data protection and security options,” said Amit Mehta, Director Sales, Isilon
