Simple and Powerful
Utilization and Workflow Productivity
Accessible File Systems
Advances in DNA sequencing and other research instruments are driving unprecedented data growth. EMC Isilon data storage can instantly scale capacity to meet your research demands—from 18 terabytes to more than 15 petabytes in a single file system and performance greater than 100 GB per second.
Easily Manage Enterprise-class Storage
Most life sciences organizations are “data-rich” but “IT-light” and would benefit from a storage system that’s simple to deploy, maintain, and grow. With EMC Isilon scale-out network-attached storage (NAS), you can manage petabytes of data in one-tenth the administration time you would spend on traditional storage solutions.
Maximize Workflow Productivity and Minimize Cost
EMC Isilon’s proven solutions achieve 48 percent greater storage productivity for mission-critical research applications and workflows, enabling immediate concurrent access to critical data. Reduce operational costs and match your storage expenditures to the growth of your data with our “pay-as-you-grow” capability.
Protect Your Data and Information
EMC Isilon offers up to N+4 protection, ensuring that 100 percent of your data is available so you can continue research without interruption. Automatic replication of data to remote sites can be performed without impact on other network resources.
Life sciences organizations such as The Broad Institute, the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, and TGen protect their data and minimize costs with EMC Isilon storage solutions.
