Isilon's Innovative Scale-out NAS Solutions
Isilon's innovative, fifth-generation storage solutions speed access to critical business information, offering an efficient, easy-to-manage storage infrastructure that reduces capital and operational expenditures while allowing you to seamlessly grow your storage as you grow your business.
Agility and Flexibility
Your business is dynamic. Your storage should be as well. Every Isilon solution is designed to seamlessly scale on-the-fly as business needs dictate, with the ability to add hundreds of terabytes of storage in just minutes. With Isilon, you can take on larger projects, leverage new revenue opportunities, create more content, and perform more in-depth research by instantly scaling storage performance and/or capacity-all without requiring additional IT staff.
Turn it on and go to work. Isilon's modular architecture and intelligent software make deployment and management simple. Once racked, you can have an Isilon IQ cluster online in less than 10 minutes, without time consuming, expensive integration services. And every Isilon cluster is a single pool of storage with a global namespace, eliminating the need to support multiple volumes and file systems. Isilon's unmatched ease-of-use requires less than one FTE to manage petabytes of data.
What you need, when you need it. Isilon's high utilization rates-over 80 percent versus 50 percent for traditional NAS or SAN storage-means you purchase fewer spindles for the same amount of usable storage. And Isilon's pay-as-you-grow modular approach allows you to align capital expenditures directly with business growth by purchasing only what your organization needs today, with the ability to easily expand tomorrow.
