I would like to know when the update for OneFS from 7.1.x to 7.2.x will be release? I was told that it would be release sometime in November. Is there an ETA on this? There are some source based routing features that we believe will help in a few of our open tickets.

OneFS 7.2 already Target Code???
EMC Isilon recommends the following versions of OneFS as Target Code. A OneFS release is designated as Target Code after it satisfies specific criteria, which includes production time in the field, deployments across all supported node platforms, and other quality metrics. To ensure that your clusters are running the most stable and reliable version of OneFS, upgrade to the latest Target Code available for the OneFS family that meets your business needs.

Are you? Feel free to share then.
Quite a stretch from beta to target code... or is there a shortcut path now?
Will risk a look at the virtual nodes, of course.
Absolutely, 220.127.116.11 is target code. If you run HD400 nodes, you are going to run the 7.2 branch. Have a peek at the release notes.
As for 'being a beta tester', that is humorous but not accurate in the least. Isilon beta processes, QA and test harnesses today are far more comprehensive and provide far more code coverage than in years past. This effort is clearly revealed in the service stats gathered from clusters running various releases- 'big data' by any other name - that quantitatively prove the point. I invite discussion and of course welcome your input.
.0.0 releases will always be referred to as beta for sure, no matter what...
"A OneFS release is designated as Target Code after it satisfies specific criteria, which includes production time in the field, deployments across all supported node platforms, and other quality metrics. "
so all this is covered by the beta program now, and Target Code can be granted from day one after GA?
Pretty radical change, would deserve at least a blog article to explain, I'd say.
Would also love to see a Technical Note on the new userspace NFS server,
e.g.: how exactly does it manage to provide better load balancing?
This is a mistake and the document will be updated and republished. The 18.104.22.168 release should appear in the General Availability section and not in the Target Code section.
The 7.2 code branch will make its way into the Released To Manufacturing section when the HD400 nodes start shipping.
