Re: Ask The Expert – Isilon’s new Releases

Hello,

what's new in OneFS.NEXT in terms of upgrades/roll-back functionality ? 

Thanks

8 Krypton

Re: Ask The Expert – Isilon’s new Releases

To expand on dynamox's question, can you give more details on release rollback and level of disruption when performing one?

Re: Ask The Expert – Isilon’s new Releases

Have the IsilonSD the same features (smartpols,InsightIQ,etc) of the hardware version?

8 Krypton

Re: Ask The Expert – Isilon’s new Releases

Why is there a 36TB limit on IsilonSD? Will that be increased in the future? It really limits the utility of the system. I'm much more interested in using it to essentially build non-standard nodes (more cpu, ram, faster ethernet) that would not be particularly commercially viable for EMC, but that size makes it a non-starter.

Re: Ask The Expert – Isilon’s new Releases

As far as the level of disruption in the upgrades, will OneFS.Next finally stomp the clusterwide hangs caused by group change issues? 7.2.1 is better, but still not good enough...

Re: Ask The Expert – Isilon’s new Releases

To expand on these question even further, what happens to config changes done after an upgrade when that upgrade gets rolled back? Revert to config settings from before the upgrade, or back-migrate the changes? Think of creating new shares, modifying quotas or network settings.

Thank you

Re: Ask The Expert – Isilon’s new Releases

What else will be new beyond edge, cloud and roll-back? Interested in performance of NAS and job engine, SSD usage modes, and monitoring/reporting.

Thank you

Re: Ask The Expert – Isilon’s new Releases

To follow on to Peter's question, will there be changes to how L3 is structured/allocated? I've put in requests before to be able to designate some SSDs in a node pool for L3 and others for GNA, if one has, say, 6 SSDs/node in some pools and other pools with no SSDs.
