Bringing the Scale-Out Data Lake to Life

Today is an exciting day for us here at Isilon. It is one of our biggest launches helping bring the Industry’s first enterprise-grade Scale-out Data Lake to life. Here is a quick summary of what we are launching today to reinforce our Scale-Out Data Lake Strategy.

We are announcing two new Platforms, the S210 and the X410. The S210 is our high transactional platform ideal for workloads such as special effects & content rendering in Media & Entertainment, Real Time Ticker Analytics in Financial Services and Chip Design in EDA. The X410 will be our new high throughput platform ideal for workloads such as content streaming, Hadoop Analytics and home directories.

We are also announcing the new version of our operating system, OneFS. The new version will include features such as SmartFlash – 1 PB of globally coherent flash cache to help accelerate read performance. We are also announcing support for updates and new access methods to better enable our multi-protocol scale out Data Lake. We are announcing enhancements to HDFS including access zones enabling secure multi-tenancy for your big data analytics workloads and support for future versions. The second access method announcement is, SMB Multi-channel with 1.4GBPS single stream throughput for emerging media workloads such as 4K. And finally, we are natively integrating OpenStack SWIFT to make Isilon the first and only File & Object Scale-out NAS.

We also announced several innovative solutions partnering with EMC Federation including two new Big Data Analytics Solutions and a comprehensive Scale-Out VDI solution with XtremIO. Check out our blog here.

My team helped put together a series of videos that we call “Learning Bites” to help you better understand our Scale out Data Lake Strategy and how the new announcements reinforce the strategy. Check it out.
