Choose Dell EMC Isilon A200 scale-out NAS for highly efficient and resilient active archive storage. Provide near-primary data access and lower the cost to store aging data assets. With the proven scale-out architecture of Isilon, you can keep pace with growing archive needs. Robust data protection and security options help you safeguard your data.

The Isilon A200 is powered by the Isilon OneFS operating system and its single volume design, which keeps your archive solution simple to manage no matter how large your data environment becomes.

DELL EMC Isilon Archive Platforms

For most businesses today, data storage requirements are continuing to grow rapidly – nearly doubling every 2 to 3 years. 80% of this new data is file-based, unstructured data. This rapid data growth is straining often limited IT resources and increasing management complexity. Increasingly stringent compliance requirements is another factor driving the need for efficient data archiving solutions that can store and protect data for long-term retention. Organizations must also weigh the cost of storing archive data against the need for quick access.

To address these challenges, Dell EMC Isilon offers two highly efficient and massively scalable archive storage solutions – the Dell EMC Isilon A200 is an ideal active archive storage solution that combines near-primary accessibility, value and ease of use – while the Dell EMC Isilon A2000 is an ideal solution for high density, deep archive storage that safeguards data efficiently for long-term retention.

The Isilon A200 and the Isilon A2000 are both powered by the Isilon OneFS operating system and use an innovative modular architecture to provide an efficient, yet simple scale-out storage platform to store, manage and protect massive amounts of unstructured data, while dramatically reducing cost and complexity. Both platforms utilize a dense hardware design that provides 4 Isilon nodes within a single 4U chassis.

Isilon archive platforms can be combined with Isilon all-flash and hybrid storage systems into a single cluster that provides an efficient tiered storage solution. The Isilon A200 and A2000 also integrate easily into existing Isilon clusters.

Capacity: The Isilon A200 provides between 120 TB to 480 TB per chassis and scales to 17 PB in a single Isilon cluster. The Isilon A2000 stores up to 800 TB per chassis and scales to over 28 PB in a single cluster.

Efficiency: Isilon scale-out storage delivers up to 80 percent storage utilization versus about 50 percent for traditional platforms. Isilon SmartDedupe data deduplication software enhances storage efficiency to further reduce your physical storage requirements.

Simplicity: You can install, configure, and have an Isilon solution online in less than 10 minutes. It’s also simple to add an Isilon A200 or A2000 to an existing Isilon cluster. When needed, you can add an additional Isilon A200 or A2000 to the cluster to scale capacity in a matter of minutes. And with Isilon, your solution remains simple to manage no matter how large your data environment becomes.

Data protection: Isilon storage is highly resilient and offers N+1 through N+4 redundancy. With Isilon you may also choose from a variety of efficient and proven enterprise data backup and disaster recovery options.

Security: Isilon offers a broad range of robust security options including FIPS 140-2 level 2 self-encrypting drives, role-based access control (RBAC), secure access zones, SEC 17a-4 compliant WORM data immutability and integrated file system auditing support.
