Isilon All-flash Scale-out NAS Storage

Dell EMC Isilon all-flash storage platforms, powered by the Isilon OneFS operating system, provide a powerful yet simple scale-out storage architecture to speed access to massive amounts of unstructured data, while dramatically reducing cost and complexity. With a highly dense design that contains 4 nodes within a single 4U chassis, Isilon all-flash delivers extreme performance and efficiency for your most demanding unstructured data applications and workloads. Isilon all-flash storage is available in 2 product lines:

Dell EMC Isilon F800: Provides massive performance and capacity. Delivers up to 250,000 IOPS and 15 GB/sec aggregate throughput in a single chassis configuration and up to 9M IOPS and 540 GB/s of aggregate throughput in a single 144 node cluster. Each chassis houses 60 SSDs with a capacity choice of 1.6 TB, 3.2 TB, 3.84 TB, 7.68 TB or 15.36 TB per drive. This allows you to scale raw storage capacity1 from 96 TB to 924 TB in a single 4U chassis and up to 33 PB in a single cluster.

Dell EMC Isilon F810: Along with massive performance and capacity, provides inline data compression to deliver extreme efficiency. Delivers up to 250,000 IOPS and 15 GB/sec aggregate throughput in a single chassis configuration and up to 9M IOPS and 540 GB/s of aggregate throughput in a single 144 node cluster2. Each Isilon F810 houses 60 SSDs with a capacity choice of 3.84 TB, 7.68 TB or 15.36 TB per drive. This allows you to scale raw storage capacity from 230 TB to 924 TB in a 4U chassis and up to 33 PB in a 144 node cluster. Depending on your specific dataset, Isilon F810 inline data compression delivers up to a 3:1 reduction in storage requirements to increase the effective capacity of your solution while lowering costs.

Efficiency: Isilon scale-out storage delivers up to 80 percent storage utilization versus about 50 percent for traditional platforms. Isilon SmartDedupe data deduplication software enhances storage efficiency to reduce your physical storage requirements by up to 35 percent. Isilon’s policy-based, automated tiering options allow you to optimize storage resources and further lower costs. In addition to these advantages that apply to all Isilon platforms, Isilon F810 all-flash offers inline data compression to further reduce data storage infrastructure requirements, increase density and lower costs.

Flexibility: Powered by the OneFS operating system, Isilon all-flash storage supports all major protocols and data access methods including NFS, SMB, HDFS, HTTP, and FTP. This means that you can support a wide range of unstructured data applications and workloads on a single storage platform.

Data protection: Isilon all -flash storage is highly resilient and offers N+1 through N+4 redundancy. With Isilon you may also choose from a variety of efficient and proven enterprise data backup and disaster recovery options.

Security: Isilon all -flash offers a broad range of robust security options including FIPS 140-2 level 2 self-encrypting drives, role-based access control (RBAC), secure access zones, SEC 17a-4 compliant WORM data immutability, and file system auditing support.
