EMC Isilon CloudPools: Extend the Data Lake to the Cloud

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this special technology white paper, EMC Isilon CloudPools: Extend the Data Lake to the Cloud, you’ll learn how to extend the data lake to the cloud with transparent tiering of inactive data. The EMC Isilon data lake is the key enabler to address the growing challenge to store, manage, protect, and analyze enterprise data assets.


Businesses are looking to leverage the cloud to cut costs, simplify IT management, or gain virtually limitless storage capacity. EMC Isilon CloudPools software provides policy-based automated tiering that lets you seamlessly integrate with the cloud as an additional storage tier for the Isilon cluster at your data center. This allows you to address rapid data growth and optimize data center storage resources by using the cloud as a highly economical storage tier with massive storage capacity for “cold” or “frozen” data that is rarely accessed. In this way, your more valuable on-premise storage resources may be used for more active data and applications, while frozen data may be retained at minimum cost and administrative burden for compliance, historical, or other business reasons. CloudPools enables you to optimize storage resources and gain cloud scale storage capacity while reducing storage costs.

Here is a list of topics highlighted in this whitepaper:

  • CloudPools, a flexible choice
  • Simplified setup and management
  • Seamless and transparent to users
  • Cloud-enabled data lake
  • Security in the cloud
  • Optimized performance
  • Smart economics
  • SmartPools and CloudPools
  • Integration with OneFS software
