Document Icon EMC Isilon Scale-Out NAS for In-Place Hadoop Data Analytics. Storing data in EMC Isilon scale-out network-attached storage optimizes data management for Hadoop analytics. Separating data from HDFS clients and storing it in an Isilon cluster provides scalability, efficiency, and workflow flexibility. Published by EMC.

Document Icon OneFS Multiprotocol Security Untangled. This white paper describes the role that identity management, authentication, and access control play in the EMC Isilon OneFS security system. Published by EMC.

Document Icon Data Lakes for Data Science: Integrating Analytics Tools with Shared Infrastructure for Big Data. This paper examines the relationship between three primary domains of an enterprise big data program: data science, analytics frameworks, and IT infrastructure. A decision about tools or infrastructure in one domain can affect, and potentially limit, what can be done in the other domains. Published by EMC.

Document Icon EMC Isilon Multitenancy for Hadoop Big Data Analytics. The EMC Isilon scale-out storage platform provides multitenancy through access zones that segregate tenants and their data sets. An access zone presents a portion of an Isilon cluster as a secure virtual storage region with a unique HDFS root directory for the zone’s tenant. With NFS, SMB, and HDFS access to each zone, an Isilon cluster delivers a scalable multitenant storage solution for analytics tools. Published by EMC Isilon.

Document Icon Compliance and Security for Hadoop Scale-Out Data Lakes. As credit card companies, medical researchers, and financial institutions analyze data with Hadoop to detect fraud, improve health care, and create innovative products, the stored data poses a compliance problem: The Hadoop File System lacks the enterprise security features that compliance regulations require. As a result, big data analysts are imperiling the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of their Hadoop data. This white paper explains how the EMC Isilon OneFS operating system securely stores data for Hadoop analytics to help meet such compliance regulations as PCI DSS, FISMA, and HIPAA. Published by EMC.

Document Icon EMC Isilon Performance at Scale for Electronic Design Automation. This paper describes how EMC Isilon network-attached storage delivers performance, scalability, and efficiency to optimize data storage for electronic design automation. Published by EMC.

Document Icon EMC Isilon Multiprotocol Data Access with a Unified Security Model. This white paper explains how the unified security model of OneFS resolves mismatches between the permissions of Windows and Unix systems while preserving the security of files and satisfying the expectations of users. Published by EMC Isilon.

Document Icon Identities, Access Tokens, and the OneFS User Mapping Service. The OneFS user mapping service combines a user’s identities from different directory services into a single access token and then modifies it according to the rules that you set. This paper explains how to map identities across directory services to uniformly control access to the OneFS file system. Published by EMC.

Document Icon EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS: An Architecture For Resiliency, High Availability, And Data Protection. This paper demonstrates that the EMC Isilon file system can remain online while a cluster sustains multiple failures of underlying components. The EMC Isilon OneFS architecture, data protection scheme, and high-availability features deliver resiliency, reliability, and data availability. Published by EMC Isilon.

Document Icon EMC Isilon Scale-Out NAS for Video Surveillance Systems. This white paper demonstrates how an EMC Isilon scale-out NAS cluster provides the scalability, efficiency, simplicity, and agility to fulfill the storage requirements of a large, centralized video surveillance system while reducing capital expenditures and operating expenses. Published by EMC.

Document Icon EMC Isilon Storage Best Practices for EDA. This paper describes the best practices for setting up and managing an EMC Isilon cluster to store data for electronic design automation (EDA). Published by EMC.

Document Icon EMC Isilon Best Practices for Hadoop Data Storage. For OneFS 7.0. This paper describes the best practices for setting up and managing the HDFS service on an Isilon cluster to optimize data storage for Hadoop analytics. Published by EMC Isilon.

Document Icon OpenStack Swift Object Storage on EMC Isilon Scale-Out NAS: The EMC Isilon scale-out storage platform provides object storage by exposing the OpenStack Object Storage API as a set of Representational State Transfer (REST) web services over HTTP. The objects that you store through the Swift API can be accessed as directories and files through NFS, SMB, and HDFS. The result is a standard method of securely integrating data-intensive applications with the Isilon storage platform and then sharing the data with other applications, such as Hadoop and Apache Spark.

Document Icon EMC Isilon Best Practices for Hadoop Data Storage. This paper describes the best practices for setting up and managing the HDFS service on an EMC Isilon cluster to optimize data storage for Hadoop analytics. For OneFS 7.2 or later. Published by EMC.

Document Icon Monitoring Unstructured Data: Uniting Multi-Protocol Storage and Cross-Platform Access Control for File Activity Monitoring and Context-Aware Security. This white paper maintains that a multi-protocol file server or NAS system with an integrated cross-platform access control system is a blueprint to efficiently and effectively monitor unstructured data.

Document Icon Auditing Unstructured Data: Identity-Aware Storage, File Activity Monitoring, and Compliance Reporting Across Platforms. This white paper argues that a multiprotocol file server with an integrated cross-platform access control system is the architectural basis for solving many problems in auditing unstructured data.

Fact Sheets

Document Icon FISMA Fact Sheet: This fact sheet outlines Likewise's technical security controls for electronic assets stored on file servers and NAS systems. The fact sheet also discusses how Likewise performs continuous monitoring of stored assets.

Document Icon HIPAA Fact Sheet: This fact sheet describes Likewise's security controls for electronic protected health information stored on file servers and NAS systems. Specifically, the fact sheet details how Likewise addresses the Administrative Safeguards and the Technical Safeguards sections of the HIPAA Security Rule. The fact sheet also discusses how Likewise's architecture provides the foundation and the functionality to perform continuous monitoring of unstructured health data to address emerging information security guidelines from the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Case Studies

Document Icon Energy Company Achieves Red Hat Windows Integration: This case study describes how a company deployed Likewise Enterprise to integrate IBM AIX and Red Hat Linux machines with Microsoft Windows computers and Active Directory.

Web Page Copy and SEO Writing

Document Icon Storage Optimization: Tune Your Management Strategy for Unstructured Data: The explosion of unstructured data in the face of shrinking IT budgets demands efficient storage management. Virtualization, deduplication, tiering, charge-back models, and service-level agreements are all essential, but to truly excel you need to manage your unstructured data in the context of its life cycle and your business strategy.
