EMC upgrades Data Lake offerings

EMC Data Lake 2.0

EMC Corporation announced new products, features and capabilities of its EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS Data Lake.

The new products include IsilonSD Edge, the next generation of Isilon OneFS and Isilon CloudPools.

EMC IsilonSD Edge is a new software-defined solution designed to simplify data management in remote offices, or edge locations, in a cost-efficient way.

Isilon OneFS operating system offering is designed to improve resiliency, simplify management, raise efficiency and provide continuous operations for massive Data Lakes.

Finally, EMC CloudPools allow Isilon to extend to public, private and hybrid clouds.

“With the world’s unstructured data growing at an unprecedented rate, IT organizations are under immense pressure to deliver more effective strategies,” said Scott Sinclair, Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group.
Sinclair added that EMC is responding to this shift and are now rolling out solutions capable of more easily harnessing unstructured data sources that until now have been trapped inside silos at the enterprise edge.

With regard to availability, EMC said the new products will be generally available in early 2016.  The company said pricing information will be made available upon general availability.

In October, EMC said it will with VMware float a 50-50 joint venture to focus on hybrid cloud business under the Virtustream brand.

The business will see the combination of cloud services business of EMC, VMware and Virtustream. Rodney Rogers, CEO of Virtustream, will head the new business.

Virtustream will be a leader in hybrid cloud, one of the largest markets for IT infrastructure spending. The new Virtustream will be taking on Salesforce and SAP in the cloud business.
