EMC Isilon Delivers Breakthrough Performance For Big Data

EMC Corporation, the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced new generations of its EMC Isilon scale-out NAS hardware and software platforms, delivering industry-leading performance, throughput and replication for big data. Isilon's new hardware platform enables customers to choose from a range of drive configurations, including solid state drives (SSD) with either serial attached SCSI (SAS) or serial ATA (SATA) drives, and combine them with a large, globally cohere

"Big data represents an unprecedented opportunity for enterprises to extract greater value from their business information, and do so more quickly and collaboratively than ever before," said David Tuhy, General Manager, Intel Storage Group. "The next-generation Isilon S200 and X200 products built with the latest Intel Xeon 5600 processors combine powerful computing with intelligent software to accelerate storage, management and collaboration in the big data era."

With the latest versions of OneFS and SyncIQ, Isilon leverages the hardware advancements of the S200 and X200 to maximum impact with intelligent, automated software that simplifies big data management:

  • OneFS 6.5 -- Isilon's new version of its OneFS operating system, which creates a single file system and single volume scalable to more than 10 petabytes of capacity, features a range of enterprise functionality enhancements, further simplifying big data management and streamlining system interoperability across a broad set of mainstream data center operations.
  • SyncIQ 3.0 -- By fully integrating SyncIQ with SnapshotIQ, Isilon now offers the most efficient scale-out NAS data replication solution available, delivering industry-leading recovery point objectives for big data protection to ensure customers' information is immediately available 24x7x365.  

"While testing Isilon's new versions of OneFS and SyncIQ, we witnessed a 2-3x increase in simultaneous processing speeds due to the CIFS enhancements in OneFS, while SyncIQ's use of snapshots significantly improved both the application's efficiency and its performance," said Jonathan Young, Senior Vice President of Operations, Ancestry.com. "With these enhancements, we can deliver client search requests even faster, while using fewer resources to do so."

"With more than six million websites running on our web creation and publishing platform, client data loss is unacceptable," said Chris Fanini, CTO, Weebly. "With the new OneFS and SyncIQ versions, Isilon delivers near real-time data access and replication, ensuring our clients are always protected and our business continues to grow rapidly and without interruption."

"Isilon is an ideal solution for big data, whether its digital media, life sciences or other industries, and its continued innovation ensures we can offer our customers compelling scale-out NAS solutions for accelerating big data performance," said Vince Conroy, CTO, FusionStorm.
