EMC Isilon scale-out storage for the media and entertainment industry delivers high performance, scalability, and ease of use while minimizing cost over time.
With the EMC Isilon OneFS operating system, every Isilon cluster is a single pool of storage with a global namespace, eliminating silos of storage and reducing complexity. OneFS combines file system, volume manager, and data protection into one unified software layer, creating a single intelligent file system.
Performance Meets Productivity
Media organizations have significant performance needs such as supporting ingest and editing stations, rendering images for high-resolution 3D animation, compositing 2D images from multiple layers, and running color correction jobs on thousands of digital moving-picture exchange (DPX) files. EMC Isilon meets those needs with storage utilization rates of over 80 percent, more than 200 GBs of aggregate throughput, and over 3.0 million file operations per second in a single file system to accelerate data access and delivery.
Collaboration and Concurrent Access
The EMC Isilon single-file system allows media producers and artists to store all file-based data in one place. Users can work concurrently on the same file, generating hundreds of standard-definition (SD), high-definition (HD), and 2K streams for ingest, edit, rendering, and play-out access—all on the same storage pool, without performance degradation.
Manage Data, Not Storage
EMC Isilon products are simple to install, manage, and scale, at any size. Storage can be added with no downtime and no disruption to content.
