Unstructured Data Leads Dell EMC to Expand Isilon Storage
February 13, 2019 / Carl Weinschenk
The Isilon F810 storage platform and ClarityNow data management software, both introduced by Dell EMC this week, aim to meet the growing amount of unstructured data generated by artificial intelligence (AI), big data analytics, and other emerging applications. The Isilon F810 is a flash storage system that executes as much as 250,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) and 15 Gbps of bandwidth in a 4U chassis. The platform scales to 9 million IOPS and 540 Gbps of aggregate throughput in a 144-node cluster. The Isilon has an inline data compression ratio of 3 to 1. The platform offers an effective storage capacity of 2.2 petabytes in a 4U chassis to 79.6 petabytes in a 144-node cluster. “The new Isilon offering builds nicely on the existing Isilon line, delivering stellar performance and compression capabilities,” Steve McDowell, the senior analyst for storage and converged systems at Moor Insights & Strategy, told SDxCentral.
