 • 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.
  • Nearline storage economics
  • Easy to use and to manage single volume, single file architecture
  • Highly scalable with grow-as-you-go flexibility
  • Unmatched efficiency to reduce costs
  • Multiprotocol support to maximize operational flexibility
  • Enterprise data protection and resiliency for valuable data
  • Robust security options
  • Support for business analytics
  • Support for virtual environments

      High Value
    The EMC Isilon NL-Series is built for highly flexible, cost effective, large-capacity storage. Each EMC Isilon NL node houses 36 SATA Hard Disk Drives (1 , 2 , 3 , 4 or 6 TB) in a 4U chassis, allowing you to seamlessly scale up to 30.2 PB in a single file system.

    You can configure and bring an EMC Isilon NL-Series cluster online in as little as 10 minutes. With a single pool of storage with a global namespace—the NL-Series eliminates the need for multiple volumes, thereby greatly simplifying the management of your big data environment.

    With EMC Isilon, you can achieve highly efficient utilization rates—over 80 percent versus 50 percent for traditional NAS or SAN storage - and further reduce capacity requirements with the Isilon SmartDedupe™ data deduplication option. This translates into greater overall efficiency, resulting in lower acquisition, operating, and maintenance costs.

    With optional FIPS 140-2 level 2 self-encrypting drives, the NL-Series platform allows you to meet regulatory and compliance needs for securing data at rest, without sacrificing performance or usability.

      Powering the Isilon Scale-out Storage Platform
    The EMC ®Isilon® OneFS® operating system provides the intelligence behind Isilon systems, combining file system, volume manager and data protection layers to create a single file system that spans all nodes within a cluster.
    The OneFS operating system powers Isilon scale-out storage solutions and provides a massively scalable, ultra-high performance, modular storage architecture that can grow easily with your business. With built-in interoperability, OneFS can help you accelerate a wide range of processes and workflows while providing the highest levels of data protection available.
    OneFS is ideally suited for file-based and unstructured Big Data applications in enterprise environments—including large scale home directories, file shares, archives, virtualization, and business analytics—as well as a wide range of data-intensive, high-performance computing environments such as energy exploration, financial services, Internet and hosting services, business intelligence, engineering, manufacturing, media and entertainment, healthcare, bioinformatics, and scientific research.
    Powerful software options are available including:
  • SmartConnect™ for intelligent, automatic client connection load balancing and failover,
  • SmartPools™ for automated multi-tiered storage,
  • SmartQuotas™ for flexible quota management and thin provisioning,
  • SmartLock™ to protect critical data from unauthorized alteration or deletion,
  • InsightIQ™ for performance monitoring and reporting tools,
  • SnapshotIQ™ for point-in-time data back-up and recovery
  • SyncIQ™ for asynchronous replication of data for collaboration, disaster recovery, business continuance, disk-to-disk back-up and remote disk archive.
    In addition OneFS provides native Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) support allowing to address business analytics needs. It also integrates with VMware® vSphere® , incorporating vStorage® APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) and VMware vStorage APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA) for an efficient support of virtual environments.
