Scale-out NAS Solutions for Virtualization
- Enterprise data centers
- Increase storage utilization and efficiency
- Scale storage capacity quickly and easily
- Simplify storage management
Enterprise data centers are rapidly adopting virtualized server environments for enhanced utilization, increased efficiency, lower costs, and greater flexibility to deliver applications and compute resources on demand. But when your virtualized environment includes fast-growing file stores, volume sprawl, capacity and load balancing, and mount point changes, the time required for administration can expand, taking resources from other tasks.
EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS
EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS Solutions for Virtualization address these challenges with highly scalable, available, and easily managed network-attached storage (NAS) designed to consolidate services and simplify tier-three and tier-four file storage for virtualized environments.
EMC Isilon scale-out NAS supports virtualized server infrastructure with a self-managing and provisioning consolidated storage environment. EMC Isilon solutions are scalable to over 15 petabytes of capacity and 100 gigabytes per second of throughput.
EMC Isilon storage is simple to install, manage, and scale at virtually any size. To further simplify storage management, Isilon provides enhanced integration with VMware vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) and VMware vSphere APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA).
Virtual and Physical File Storage
Isilon scale-out NAS serves the requirements of many types of unstructured data, consolidating both virtualized and nonvirtualized file storage into one easy-to-use storage pool with a single point of management. The EMC Isilon platform eliminates silos of storage by concurrently consolidating both physical and virtualized environments into a single, easy-to-manage, scalable storage environment.
