EMC Isilon enables 2.5 times capacity increase, 50% cut in expenses

EMC Corporation has launched the Data Lake Foundation and new features for Isilon that enables next generation use cases and increases capacity by 2.5 times by reducing expenses by 50 percent.

The new Isilion HD400 platform allows customers to scale their data Lake Foundation to 50PB. The new features in the OneFS 7.2 operating system supports integrated Hadoop management tools. OneFS combines the three layers of traditional storage architectures-file system, volume manager and data protection into one unified software layer.

The Data Lake Foundation brings data, applications and analytics together while delivering analytics wherever needed. EMC Isilon is providing its customer simpler ways to store and manage data so they can focus toward gaining insights and value from their data and customers are now eliminating storage silos.

Organizations these days are finding traditional techniques expensive to store manage and analyze information and are challenged by the proliferation of inefficient storage silos across the enterprise that are difficult to manage and protect. The traditional techniques are also slow to handle massive data volumes.
