While most companies begin using Hadoop to capture and transform data from a multitude of sources, its scope and mission have rapidly expanded to be a power-house for analytic workloads.

Sam Grocott, senior vice president of marketing, Emerging Technologies Division, EMC Corporation.

Joint Solution Overview

In just a few years, Apache Hadoop has evolved from a batch processing framework, built on low cost storage and compute hardware, to an enterprise-ready data management platform able to handle real-time storage, processing and analytics applications.

While most companies start out using Hadoop as a data lake to capture data from anywhere and in any format for future analysis, many have already own a NAS- or SAN-based “data lake”. These NAS and SAN systems break down data silos and consolidate less frequently accessed data in one multi-petabyte pool. How do we utilize these data without the needs and costs of additional data movement?

Cloudera & EMC Isilon
EMC Isilon Big Data storage and analytics solutions combine a powerful yet simple, highly efficient, and massively scalable storage platform with integrated support for Hadoop analytics. EMC Isilon is the first, and only, scale-out NAS platform to incorporate native support for the HDFS layer. With your unstructured data on Isilon, these capabilities allow you to quickly implement an in-place data analytics approach and avoid unnecessary capital expenditures, increased operational costs, and time-consuming replication of your Big Data to a separate infrastructure.

Cloudera & EMC DSSD D5
EMC DSSD D5 provides a new storage platform that revolutionizes Hadoop workloads with industry-leading shared flash storage performance. DSSD and Cloudera have collaborated to bring new innovations to the Hadoop ecosystem, including a DSSD D5 Hadoop API Plug-in. This plug-in significantly improves the performance of any analytical tool running on HDFS, and delivers game-changing benefits without the need to make changes to the applications.
