Dell EMC Isilon Solution for Hadoop Analytics

Bring Big Data analytics and storage consolidation to your enterprise with Dell EMC Isilon. Isilon is the first and only scale-out NAS platform with native integration of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).

When you use Hadoop with Isilon network-attached storage, there is no need for data ingestion. Run Big Data analytics in place -- you won’t have to move data to a dedicated Hadoop infrastructure. You’ll speed data analysis and cut costs.

Key features:

  • Works with any industry-standard Apache Hadoop distribution including Pivotal HD, Cloudera CDH, and Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP)
  • Saves money and speeds time to insight with in-place analytics
  • Installs, manages, and scales easily
  • Protects with optional data replication, snapshots, data encryption, file system auditing, WORM data protection, and role-based access control.
