EMC Announces The Data Lake Foundation

The Data lake is one place to put all the data enterprises may want to use, including structured and unstructured data.

The application ? Big Data lah !!!

The Data Lake foundation enables solutions which bring data, applications and analytics together while delivering analytics wherever needed. A data lake strategy simplifies the storage, management and analysis of Big Data by bringing together data in real-time, near real-time or in batch, and from disparate sources crossing multiple protocols.

Here’s what the Data Lake Foundation consists of these core features:
  • Efficient Storage: Eliminates storage silos, simplifies management, and improves utilization
  • Massive Scalability: Built from scale-out architectures that are massively scalable and simple to manage
  • Increased Operational Flexibility: Multi-protocol and next-generation access capabilities support traditional and emerging applications
  • Enterprise Attributes: Protects data with efficient and resilient backup, disaster recovery and security options
  • In-Place Big Data Analytics: Leverages shared storage and support for protocols such as HDFS to deliver cost-efficient, in-place analytics with faster time to results.
