The Big Reveal: Reinforcing the Scale-Out Data Lake

IT today is running faster than ever before, tasked with an incredibly difficult mission—maximize efficiency by redefining how technology supports the business. The world is moving to a hybrid (private and public) cloud environment, necessitating a whole new approach to IT. So how do we make that happen?

EMC is supporting this mission with new hardware and software updates to the Isilon family of products, catering to today’s Hadoop-heavy environments and leveraging flash for maximum acceleration.

EMC’s core mission for Isilon is to enable our customers to easily store and manage information at scale. We do that by constantly redefining Scale-out NAS and expanding its capabilities and potential. A couple of months back at EMC World, we shared our Isilon Scale-out Data Lake story and how  it helps customers to store, manage and protect all their unstructured data.

Gartner Recognizes EMC as #1 NAS and Unified Storage, Worldwide Market Leader in 2012

Eric Herzog

SVP, Product Management and Product Marketing, Unified Storage Division at EMC

In March 2013 Jeremy Burton wrote about Gartner’s release of an all-new “General Purpose Disk Array” Magic Quadrant. It took a new, consolidated view of vendors’ storage lines— evaluating mid-range storage, scale-out NAS, and enterprise storage offerings holistically.  For EMC, that means the VNX, Isilon, and VMAX solutions. EMC was positioned in the leaders quadrant.

EMC VNXRecently, Gartner released a follow-on Market Share Analysis report that focuses on the worldwide consolidated NAS/unified storage market in its “Market Share Analysis: Network-Attached Storage and Unified Storage, Worldwide, 2012”. Gartner, again, named EMC the leader in storage market share — achieving the #1 in unified (with VNX unified solutions) and #1 in NAS (with VNX and Isilon).

New Gartner Research Positions EMC in Leaders Quadrant for New General Purpose Disk Array Magic Quadrant

Jeremy Burton

EVP, Product Operations and Marketing at EMC

Over the years, Gartner Magic Quadrants have become iconic in the IT industry. A place where vendors are evaluated together with long-time competitors, as well as smaller up-and-coming startups.

In the storage market, the magic quadrants have traditionally had long-standing, very clearly defined swim lanes – high-end storage in one quadrant, mid-range storage in another, and so on.

For the longest time, this made perfect sense.  After all, why would you compare a heavyweight boxer to a middleweight?  They’re not going to end up in the ring together, so why bother?

But the storage landscape is changing and, to their credit, Gartner has responded with an all-new “General Purpose Disk Array” Magic Quadrant, which was released earlier today.  This new quadrant takes a consolidated view of vendors’ storage lines, evaluating mid-range storage, scale-out NAS, and enterprise storage offerings holistically.  For EMC, that means our VNX, Isilon, and VMAX lines.

Question: Archive? Answer: Isilon Scale-out NAS with New 4 TB Drives

There are few enterprise storage use cases that stress the seams of traditional storage systems quite like large and rapidly-growing file-based data archives. In nearly every customer conversation that I’ve had over the last few quarters, dealing with the current and rapidly growing “archive” environment is top-of-mind for our prospects and customers. Underlying architectural weaknesses are magnified, bottlenecks become chokepoints and what’s manageable at small scale becomes impossible to manage at larger scale. And just to make the situation even more challenging, as data volumes grow, the business, legal and regulatory compliance requirements surrounding that data are growing in lock step, if not faster. I’ve heard loud and clear that what enterprises need is a solution purpose-built to easily and simply handle the demands of these increasingly important archive environments – one that fits seamlessly in their environment today and scales for tomorrow.
