EMC / Isilon

Isilon scale-out storage platform is massively scalable, highly efficient and designed to provide you with a powerful, yet simple way to consolidate and manage enterprise data and applications.

Agility and Flexibility

With Isilon, you can scale both capacity and performance almost instantly to meet your specific business need—all without any additional IT burden.

Simple to Manage

Isilons modular architecture and intelligent software make deployment and management simple. You can have an Isilon cluster online in less than 10 minutes, or scale an existing cluster in 60 seconds without time consuming, expensive integration services. And every Isilon cluster is a single pool of storage with a global namespace, eliminating the need to support multiple volumes and file systems.


Isilon's high utilization rates--over 80 percent--means you purchase less raw capacity for the same amount of usable storage. And Isilon's pay-as-you-grow modular approach allows you to align capital expenditures directly with business growth by purchasing only what your organization needs today, with the ability to easily expand tomorrow.
