Addressing Enterprise Class, Simultaneous Multi-protocol, Scale-out Data Lake solutions

Product Description:

Isilon is a multi-protocol storage platform to store, archive and access unstructured content at scale. Providing best-in-class scale-out architecture that allows Service Providers to address multiple file, object or HDFS workloads in single dedicated or multi-tenant storage solution.

Designed to offer SPs massive scalability and performance to enable third-platform emerging applications of Cloud, Mobile, and Big Data Analytics while providing the agility and simplicity to continue to run second-platform traditional workloads.

EMC Isilon is committed to removing the barriers that exist between businesses and their data. That's why we've designed our scale-out storage platform to serve as a powerful yet simple foundation for effective data and application management. While storage itself cannot drive a business forward, the right storage can reduce cost and complexity in a way that fuels innovation, sustains growth, and delivers competitive advantage.
