EMC Isilon x210 Features
The Dell EMC Isilon X-Series, powered by the Isilon OneFS operating system, uses a highly versatile yet simple scale-out storage
architecture to speed access to massive amounts of data, while dramatically reducing cost and complexity. The Isilon X-Series is
comprised of two product lines — the Isilon X210, a 2U platform, and the Isilon X410, a 4U platform. The Isilon X-Series is highly flexible and strikes the balance between large capacity and high-performance storage. The X-Series is an ideal solution for highthroughput and high-concurrency applications. With SSD technology for file system metadata and file-based storage workflows, the Isilon X-Series also accelerates namespace-intensive operations.
The Isilon X-Series scales from a few terabytes (TB) up to 20 petabytes (PB) and up to 200 gigabytes per second (GB/s) of
throughput within a single cluster.1 When needed, you can scale capacity and performance by adding a node in about a minute.
With its modular architecture, the Isilon X-Series makes deployment and management simple. Once racked, an X-Series
cluster can be brought online in about 10 minutes. With a single pool of storage with a global namespace, an X-Series cluster
eliminates the need to support multiple volumes and simplifies management.
With Isilon, you can achieve highly efficient utilization rates—up to 80 percent compared to about 50 percent for traditional
storage. Isilon's SmartDedupe data deduplication option allows you to further reduce your storage requirements by up to 30 percent. This translates into lower acquisition and operating costs.
With optional FIPS 140-2 level 2 self-encrypting drives, the X-Series platform allows you to meet regulatory and compliance
needs for securing data at rest without sacrificing performance or usability.
