The Data Lake Hadoop Bundle 2.0 is designed to help organizations accelerate the value of Hadoop Big Data initiatives in the enterprise while keeping acquisition and management costs lower than solutions assembled with disparate parts. The solution is comprised of a pre-tested, high performance Big Data analytic system featuring world-class EMC storage and advanced analytics on Hadoop through enterprise appliances, enabling a single, focused and easy to implement solution.

The Data Lake Hadoop Bundle 2.0 includes:
