*Breaking News*

Isilon All-Flash is a scale-out NAS storage platform that combines the extreme performance of flash technology with the proven efficiency, flexibility and resiliency of Isilon storage, the #1 scale-out NAS platform in the industry. Powered by the Isilon OneFS operating system, Isilon All-Flash storage is designed to support a wide range of applications and workloads that require extreme NAS performance. Isilon All-Flash can be deployed separately or easily integrated into existing Isilon clusters to enable customers to modernize IT, enable digital business and accelerate the performance of an enterprise data lake.

The Isilon All-Flash uses a revolutionary, highly dense design that provides 4 Isilon nodes within a single 4U chassis. Available in several configurations, the Isilon all-flash platform will deliver up to 250,000 IOPS and 15 GB/s bandwidth per chassis while providing and capacity options ranging from 92 TB to 924 TB per chassis. Isilon All-Flash solutions can expand easily as needed up to 100 chassis is a single cluster to provide a total cluster performance of up to 25M IOPS and 1.5 TB/s bandwidth.

Along with extreme NAS performance, Isilon All-Flash scale-out NAS provides proven enterprise-grade capabilities that organizations demand including:

  • Operational flexibility: Powered by the Isilon OneFS operating system with its extensive multi-protocol capabilities (including NFS, SMB, FTP, HDFS, REST, Swift, HTTP, and NDMP), the new Isilon all-flash scale-out NAS platform will support a wide range of applications and workloads on a single platform.
  • Massive scalability: With Isilon All-Flash scale-out NAS storage, customers can start with a single 4U chassis and easily expand capacity by combining up to 100 Isilon All-Flash units into a single cluster that provides up to 92.4 PB of storage capacity.
  • Enterprise data protection: Because it runs on the Isilon OneFS operating system, Isilon All-Flash scale-out NAS is highly resilient, with up to N+4 redundancy, and offers proven enterprise-grade data back-up and disaster recovery options.
  • Robust data security: Isilon All-Flash offers a broad range of data security options including role-based access control (RBAC); secure access zones; write-once read many (WORM) data protection; file system auditing; and data-at-rest encryption with self-encrypting drives (SEDs) to meet stringent security and compliance options.
  • Unmatched efficiency: In addition to storage utilization that can exceed 80%, Isilon All-Flash solutions can leverage Isilon SmartDedupe data deduplication to further reduce storage requirements by up to 30% or more.
  • Storage tiering: With Isilon SmartPools and CloudPools software, Isilon All-Flash storage solutions can also take advantage of policy-based, automated storage tiering to move data automatically to lower cost tiers, including a choice of cloud storage options, as data ages or becomes less valuable. This enables customers to reduce capital expenses and optimize storage resources by reserving their Isilon All-Flash storage for their most demanding applications.

Re: Ask the Expert: Accelerate the Data Lake with Isilon All-Flash

The new Isilon All-Flash platform will provide blazing performance to run a wide range of the most demanding NAS workloads. Examples include:

1) Data Lake: Customers looking to consolidate their unstructured data with a data lake that supports a wide range of workloads including a number of applications that require extreme NAS performance.

2) Media & Entertainment:  M&E customer target use cases include:  4K streaming of data to drive higher resolution of viewing content; and large-scale render farms that need to process larger datasets and generate content faster.

3) Life Sciences: Target use cases include genomics sequencing and large-scale microscopy environments  that need to process enormous datasets in a short time period

4) Financial Services:  Use cases will include workloads that need high performance, low latency and maximum throughput such as ticker analysis that requires near real-time analysis of stock market data on very large datasets.

5) Big Data Analytics:  Customers looking to run a wide range of near real-time analytics with their choice of Big Data analytics vendors like Hortonworks, Cloudera, Pivotal, IBM and Splunk.

6) Big Data Analytics:  Customers looking to run a wide range of near real-time analytics with their choice of Big Data analytics vendors like Hortonworks, Cloudera, Pivotal, IBM and Splunk.

Re: Ask the Expert: Accelerate the Data Lake with Isilon All-Flash

How are the Caches handled in Isilon AFA?  Use only the L1 and L2 Caches?

With SmartPools, is it reasonable to assume that the Isilon AFA nodes will be used the most?  If that's the case, is there something smart to protect the flash arrays from worn out quickly?
