EMC Isilon X-Series
The EMC® Isilon® X-Series, powered by the OneFS® operating system, uses a highly versatile yet simple scale-out storage architecture to speed access to massive amounts of data, while dramatically reducing cost and complexity. The Isilon X-Series is comprised of three product lines — the Isilon X200 and X210, 2U platforms, and the Isilon X410, a 4U platform. The Isilon X-Series is highly flexible and strikes the balance between large capacity and high-performance storage. The X-Series is an ideal solution for high-throughput and high-concurrency applications. With SSD technology for file system metadata and file-based storage workflows, the EMC Isilon X-Series also accelerates namespace-intensive operations.
Agility: The Isilon X-Series scales from a few terabytes (TB) to over 20 petabytes (PB) and over 200 gigabytes per second (GB/s) of throughput within a single cluster. When needed, you can scale capacity and performance by adding a node in about a minute.
Simplicity: With its modular architecture, the Isilon X-Series makes deployment and management simple. Once racked, an X-Series cluster can be brought online in less than 10 minutes. With a single pool of storage with a global namespace, an X-Series cluster eliminates the need to support multiple volumes and simplifies management.
Efficiency: With Isilon, you can achieve highly efficient utilization rates—over 80 percent compared to about 50 percent for traditional storage. Isilon's SmartDedupe™ data deduplication option allows you to further reduce your storage requirements by up to 30 percent. This translates into lower acquisition and operating costs.
Security: With optional FIPS 140-2 level 2 self-encrypting drives, the X-Series platform allows you to meet regulatory and compliance needs for securing data at rest without sacrificing performance or usability.
