 • Scale-out NAS Storage Platform for Big Data
EMC Isilon NL-Series
The challenge of cost-effectively storing and managing data is an ever growing concern. You also have to weigh the cost of storing certain aging data sets against the need for quick access. Meeting this challenge requires a solution that bridges the gap between high-performance but costly, primary storage and inexpensive, but management-intensive, off-line storage solutions. The Isilon NL-Series scale-out storage solution redefines the economics of nearline storage by combining near-primary accessibility, near-tape value and ease of use.
