Isilon Systems, a provider of clustered storage software, has released the Isilon IQ 12000 and EX 12000 products, delivering the production-ready storage system to scale to more than 1.6 Petabytes of capacity in a single file system and single volume, achieving scalability levels 100 times that of traditional SAN and NAS storage systems.
The Isilon IQ 12000 and EX 12000 deliver the breakthrough benefits of clustered storage – high performance data access, ‘pay as you grow’ modular scalability and unmatched ease of use – in a powerful and economical solution for the near-line archiving market. These new, highest density systems further extend Isilon’s clustered storage platform, which is standing at the forefront of the enterprise shift to virtualized data centers based upon clustered and server virtualization.
Brett Goodwin, vice president of marketing & business development at Isilon Systems, said: For years, the complexity of traditional storage has hindered workflow efficiency and created costly bottlenecks in enterprise operations, relegating IT to a business’s overhead costs. However, in today’s enterprise, the virtual data center – with its dramatic ease of use, cost-efficiency and performance – is absolutely necessary to turn the opportunities of today into the breakthroughs of tomorrow. To satisfy this business imperative, Isilon’s clustered storage systems create a single, highly scalable, high performance, shared pool of storage, delivering a truly clustered and virtualized storage solution to transform IT from business overhead to strategic weapon.
