This Ask the Expert session is now open for questions. For the next couple of weeks our Subject Matter Expert will be around to reply to your questions, comments or inquiries about our topic.
Let’s make this conversation useful, respectful and entertaining for all. Enjoy!
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
