EMC Isilon SnapshotIQ provides a simple, scalable, and flexible way to enable enterprise-class, point-in-time data protection and recovery for scale-out storage. SnapshotIQ can be used as a cornerstone of your big data protection strategy as it allows you to make frequent, low-impact, user-recoverable backups of files.
Simple, Scalable Data Protection
SnapshotIQ supports a highly scalable number of snapshots throughout an Isilon storage cluster and up to 1,024 snapshots per directory. This provides you with massive scalability and data protection for your large and growing data environment. Because SnapshotIQ is also globally coherent and spans across all nodes regardless of the cluster size, you can administer snapshots from a true single point of view, giving you unmatched flexibility and ease of use.
Automatic Data Protection
With SnapshotIQ, you can automatically back up data as frequently as required to meet your recovery point objectives. Experience little to no performance impact on users, regardless of the size of the file system or directory being snapshot or the level of production activity on the cluster.
Fast, Secure Backup and Recovery
Benefit from an extremely fast snapshot capability (typically less than one second to create) and near-immediate data restoration to easily meet your aggressive recovery time objectives. Since SnapshotIQ retains the security of the file within the snapshot, restoration is both secure and simple.
