SECURE IT.SIMPLYMeeting compliance and governance requirements is essential for most organizations today. To address these needs, Isilon providesrobust security options, including file system auditing and Data at Rest Encryption (DARE) with self-encrypting drives (SEDs). We offerwrite once, read many (WORM) data protection to prevent accidental or malicious alteration or deletion and help you meet regulatoryrequirements—including the stringent SEC 17a-4 rule. With Isilon, you can also leverage role-based access control (RBAC) optionsand, if needed, create isolated storage pools for specific departments within your organization. Isilon also offers SMB3 encryption,HDFS Transparent Data Encryption (TDE), Security and Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) hardening, CAC/PIV Smartcardauthentication, multi-factor authentication and FIPS OpenSSL support for Federal government agencies and financial servicesbusinesses.Isilon OneFS Operating System Powers Scale-Out Storage SolutionsThe Isilon OneFS operating system provides the intelligence behind all Isilon scale-out storage solutions. Through the fusion ofOneFS, state-of-the-art engineering, and industry-standard enterprise hardware, Isilon provides a highly scalable, high–performancemodular storage architecture that can grow with your business. OneFS can help you accelerate processes and workflows, whilescaling easily to handle massive growth and providing the highest levels of data protection available. This is all provided in a storagesolution designed for unmatched ease of use.Isilon scale-out storage solutions, powered by the OneFS operating system, provide users with a broad range of options to meet theirspecific storage needs.SCALE-OUT DATA LAKEAs the volume and sources of data have expanded dramatically, traditional techniques to store and analyze information are tooexpensive and too slow to handle the massive data volumes modern enterprises produce and manage. With Isilon, you can gain ahighly flexible and efficient storage infrastructure that expands your data lake from the edge to the core to the cloud. You canconsolidate data, simplify management and eliminate inefficient storage silos while supporting a wide range of traditional and nextgeneration workloads and applications that previously used a number of different types of storage.Unmatched Agility and PerformanceChange is inevitable. That’s why every Isilon system is built to rapidly and simply adapt. OneFS allows a storage system to growsymmetrically or independently as more space or processing power is required. This allows you to scale your storage easily up to 252nodes as your business needs dictate. With Isilon, you can scale performance from 250,000 file operations per second (IOPS) with asingle chassis up to 15.8 million IOPS with a single cluster. You can also scale throughput from 15 gigabytes per second (GB/s) with asingle chassis up to 945 GB/s of aggregate read throughput in a single Isilon cluster.2 Dell EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS Product Family 2019 Dell Inc. or its subsidiaries.
Efficiency and Cost SavingsOrchestrated by OneFS, all components in an Isilon cluster work in concert to create a unified pool of highly efficient storage—with astorage utilization rate of up to 80 percent. With Isilon SmartDedupe data deduplication, you can further reduce your data storagerequirements by up to 35 percent in environments with redundant data across multiple sources. The Isilon F810 all-flash platform alsodelivers up to 3:1 data compression to dramatically increase the effective storage capacity and density of your Isilon solution. Theunmatched efficiency of Isilon storage systems means that less physical storage and space are required to house the same amount ofdata—reducing both initial capital outlay and ongoing costs. And, with the Isilon AutoBalance function, you can quickly and easily addnodes without downtime, manual data migration, or application logic reconfiguration, saving precious IT resources. And because Isilonstorage is so easy to manage, it requires fewer IT resources for storage administration than traditional storage systems, which furtherreduces overall operating costs. Using CloudPools software you can lower costs by tiering cold or frozen data to a choice of public orprivate cloud options.Simple InteroperabilityWith Isilon, you can streamline your storage infrastructure by consolidating large-scale unstructured data assets thus eliminating silosof storage. Isilon includes integrated support for a wide range of industry-standard protocols, including Internet Protocols IPv4, andIPv6, NFS, SMB, HTTP, FTP and HDFS. As a result, you can simplify workflows, accelerate business analytics projects, support cloudinfrastructure initiatives, unlock data capital and get more value from your enterprise applications and data.Enterprise Data Protection and Management SoftwareMassive stores of data present unique management challenges including disaster recovery, quota management and offsite replication.Isilon data protection and management software provides you with powerful tools that help you protect your data assets, control costsand optimize the storage resources and system performance of your big data environment.SOFTWAREFEATUREDESCRIPTIONPerformance managementOptimize your Isilon solution with innovative performancemonitoring and reportingResource managementImplement a highly efficient, automated tiered storagestrategy to optimize storage performance and efficiencyDELL EMC CLARITYNOWData managementLocate, access and manage data in seconds, no matterwhere it resides – across file and object storage, on-premor in the cloud.
