EMC Isilon Delivers World's Largest Single File System for Big Data

New Scale-out NAS Products Top 15 Petabytes in a Single File System and Single Volume, Providing the Storage Foundation for Maximizing the Big Data Opportunity

LAS VEGAS, May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- EMCWORLD 2011 --

News Summary:

  • World's Largest Single File System -- with EMC Isilon®'s new IQ 108NL hardware product, Isilon is the market's first and only scale-out NAS system to reach more than 15 petabytes in a single file system and volume, providing maximum scalability in building the storage foundation for big data.
  • Enterprise-Grade Protection -- with Isilon's new SmartLock® data retention software application, enterprise users can now set immutable protection levels for big data assets, ensuring mission-critical data is tamper-proof and verifiable throughout its lifecycle.

Full Story:

EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced the world's largest single file system with the introduction of EMC Isilon's new IQ 108NL scale-out NAS hardware product. Leveraging three terabyte (TB) enterprise-class Hitachi Ultrastar(TM) drives in a 4U node, the 108NL scales to more than 15 petabytes (PB) in a single file system and single volume, providing the storage foundation for maximizing the big data opportunity. EMC also today announced Isilon's new SmartLock data retention software application, delivering immutable protection for big data to ensure the integrity and continuity of big data assets from initial creation to archival. By combining Isilon's new NL-Series product with the recently announced OneFS® 6.5 operating system, and S200 and X200 scale-out NAS hardware products, enterprise businesses can create a complete, end-to-end storage platform for big data workflows, simplifying management and achieving maximum IT efficiency and flexibility.

"Enterprises are dealing with large and fast growing sources of data or information, but their real challenge will be finding ways to better analyze and capitalize on all this information. Successful exploitation of 'Big Data' depends upon the deployment of a simple, scalable, and highly flexible storage foundation at the core of the data center," said Richard Villars, vice president, Storage and IT Executive Strategies at IDC. "Solutions like Isilon's new scale-out NAS products deliver the performance, scale, and simplicity required to support big data workloads and enable real-time analysis."

"Making the most of big data isn't just about capacity, or performance, or enterprise functionality, it's about combining all three elements in a flexible architecture tailored to the customers unique workflow needs," said Sam Grocott, vice president of marketing, Isilon. "With our new products Isilon continues to set the standard in scale-out NAS, delivering a storage architecture designed specifically for the unique demands of big data. Now, enterprise organizations can create a complete, end-to-end platform for big data that scales in-step with everything from the large-scale enterprise applications to the most intense vertical workflows."

Isilon's new IQ 108NL leverages Isilon's OneFS operating system and Hitachi Ultrastar 3TB drives to deliver more than 15PB in a single file system and single volume, providing optimal efficiency for big data storage to maximize return on investment. Zoic Studios, an Emmy Award-winning visual effects (VFX) studio, is currently using the IQ 108NL as part of its end-to-end Isilon storage platform powering leading-edge post-production operations.

"We've been using Isilon for some time now, with multiple Isilon performance tiers providing the platform for our leading-edge visual effects and animation workflow," said Saker Klippsten, head of engineering and IT, Zoic. "However, with our operations producing more content than ever, our need for highly efficient, massively scalable, archive storage has become increasingly more important. Isilon's new IQ 108NL has the density and scalability we need to scale-out our big data archive over the long term. Plus, with Isilon's SmartPools, we've integrated the new NL into a single, multi-tiered file system, completely eliminating manual data migrations."

"While high performance is critical in big data workflows, it is just as important, if not more so, to provide tremendous scaling of capacity to ensure storage resources can efficiently keep pace with data growth," said Brendan Collins, vice president of product marketing, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. "As one of the first enterprise storage vendors to implement our three terabyte Ultrastar 7K3000 drives, EMC Isilon is continuing to push the innovation curve for scale-out NAS. The overall efficiency of our latest drive generation and the intelligence of Isilon's OneFS operating system create a compelling combination of capacity and cost savings to help businesses transform big data into real value."

Isilon's new SmartLock data retention software application seamlessly integrates with integrates with OneFS to deliver immutable data protection for file-based data, ensuring that once locked, a file cannot be moved or changed in any manner. With SmartLock, each protected file is given a unique, verifiable signature validating its integrity and status within the file system. When combined with Isilon's IQ 108NL, SmartLock provides the highest levels of protection for nearline big data archives.

Availability

The Isilon IQ 108NL hardware product and SmartLock data retention software application are both available immediately. The IQ 108NL has a list price of $123,500 per node. SmartLock begins at list price of $1,950 per node.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
