EMC Isilon HD-Series
The rapid growth of unstructured data combined with increasingly stringent compliance requirements is resulting in a growing need for efficient data archiving solutions that can store and protect data for long-term retention.
EMC® Isilon® HD-Series scale-out storage solutions, featuring the Isilon HD400, address these challenges by providing large-scale high density, deep archiving data storage solutions that offer unmatched efficiency to lower costs and robust data protection options.
Massive Scalability: The HD-Series is built for highly efficient, large-capacity storage. Each Isilon HD node houses 59 hard disk drives with a capacity of 6 TB per drive in a 4U chassis, allowing you to scale up to 50.9 PB in a single file system.
Simplicity: You can configure and bring an EMC Isilon HD-Series cluster online in as little as 10 minutes. With a single pool of storage with a global namespace, the HDSeries eliminates the need to manage multiple volumes, thereby greatly simplifying the management of your growing data archive environment.
Efficiency: With Isilon, you can achieve highly efficient utilization rates—over 80 percent versus 50 percent for traditional storage. You can further reduce capacity requirements with the Isilon SmartDedupe™ data deduplication option. The high density architecture of the HD-Series also serves to reduce data center space, power and cooling requirements to further lower costs. This translates into greater overall efficiency and lower operating costs.
Data Protection: Isilon offers robust security options, including file system auditing, roles-based access control (RBAC) to provide a clear separation between storage administration and file system access, and SEC 17a-4 compliant write once-read many (WORM) data protection to prevent accidental or malicious data alteration or deletion.
