Isilon F800 is all-flash NAS that scales easily and keeps management simple, no matter how large your data environment becomes. For best use of your resources, automated storage tiering lets you tier less frequently accessed data to other Isilon systems or to the cloud.

Dell EMC Isilon All-Flash Platforms

Dell EMC Isilon all-flash storage platforms, powered by the Isilon OneFS operating system, provide a powerful yet simple scale-out storage architecture to speed access to massive amounts of unstructured data, while dramatically reducing cost and complexity. With a highly dense design that contains 4 nodes within a single 4U chassis, Isilon all-flash delivers extreme performance and efficiency for your most demanding unstructured data applications and workloads. Isilon all-flash storage is available in 2 product lines:

  • Dell EMC Isilon F800: Provides massive performance and capacity and delivers up to 250,000 IOPS and 15 GB/sec aggregate throughput in a single chassis configuration and up to 15.75M IOPS and 945 GB/s of aggregate throughput in a 252 node5 cluster. Each chassis houses 60 SSDs with a capacity choice of 1.6 TB, 3.2 TB, 3.84 TB, 7.68 TB or 15.36 TB per drive. This allows you to scale raw storage capacity1 from 96 TB to 924 TB in a single 4U chassis and up to 58 PB5 in a single cluster.
  • Dell EMC Isilon F810: Along with massive performance and capacity, the F810 provides inline data compression to deliver extreme efficiency. The F810 delivers up to 250,000 IOPS and 15 GB/sec aggregate throughput in a single chassis configuration and up to 9M IOPS and 540 GB/s of aggregate throughput in a single 144 node cluster2. Each Isilon F810 houses 60 SSDs with a capacity choice of 3.84 TB, 7.68 TB or 15.36 TB per drive. This allows you to scale raw storage capacity from 230 TB to 924 TB in a 4U chassis and up to 33 PB in a 144 node cluster. Depending on your specific dataset, Isilon F810 inline data compression delivers up to a 3:1 reduction in storage requirements to increase the effective capacity of your solution while lowering costs.

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 reduce your physical storage requirements by up to 35 percent. Isilon’s policy-based, automated tiering options allow you to optimize storage resources and further lower costs. In addition to these advantages that apply to all Isilon platforms, Isilon F810 all-flash offers inline data compression to further reduce data storage infrastructure requirements, increase density and lower costs.

Flexibility: Powered by the OneFS operating system, Isilon all-flash storage supports all major protocols and data access methods including NFS, SMB, HDFS, HTTP, and FTP. This means that you can support a wide range of unstructured data applications and workloads on a single storage platform.

Data protection: Isilon all-flash 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 all-flash 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 file system auditing support.

Isilon OneFS Operating System Powers Scale-Out Storage Solutions

The Isilon OneFS operating system provides the intelligence behind all Isilon scale-out storage solutions. Through the fusion of OneFS, state-of-the-art engineering, and industry-standard enterprise hardware, Isilon provides a highly scalable, high–performance modular storage architecture that can grow with your business. OneFS can help you accelerate processes and workflows, while scaling easily to handle massive growth and providing the highest levels of data protection available. This is all provided in a storage solution designed for unmatched ease of use.

Isilon OneFS Operating System Powers Scale-Out Storage Solutions

Isilon scale-out storage solutions, powered by the OneFS operating system, provide users with a broad range of options to meet their specific storage needs.

Scale-Out Data Lake

As the volume and sources of data have expanded dramatically, traditional techniques to store and analyze information are too expensive and too slow to handle the massive data volumes modern enterprises produce and manage. With Isilon, you can gain a highly flexible and efficient storage infrastructure that expands your data lake from the edge to the core to the cloud. You can consolidate data, simplify management and eliminate inefficient storage silos while supporting a wide range of traditional and nextgeneration workloads and applications that previously used a number of different types of storage.

Unmatched Agility and Performance

Change is inevitable. That’s why every Isilon system is built to rapidly and simply adapt. OneFS allows a storage system to grow symmetrically or independently as more space or processing power is required. This allows you to scale your storage easily up to 252 nodes as your business needs dictate. With Isilon, you can scale performance from 250,000 file operations per second (IOPS) with a single chassis up to 15.8 million IOPS with a single cluster. You can also scale throughput from 15 gigabytes per second (GB/s) with a single chassis up to 945 GB/s of aggregate read throughput in a single Isilon cluster.

Efficiency and Cost Savings

Orchestrated by OneFS, all components in an Isilon cluster work in concert to create a unified pool of highly efficient storage—with a storage utilization rate of up to 80 percent. With Isilon SmartDedupe data deduplication, you can further reduce your data storage requirements by up to 35 percent in environments with redundant data across multiple sources. The Isilon F810 all-flash platform also delivers up to 3:1 data compression to dramatically increase the effective storage capacity and density of your Isilon solution. The unmatched efficiency of Isilon storage systems means that less physical storage and space are required to house the same amount of data—reducing both initial capital outlay and ongoing costs. And, with the Isilon AutoBalance function, you can quickly and easily add nodes without downtime, manual data migration, or application logic reconfiguration, saving precious IT resources. And because Isilon storage is so easy to manage, it requires fewer IT resources for storage administration than traditional storage systems, which further reduces overall operating costs. Using CloudPools software you can lower costs by tiering cold or frozen data to a choice of public or private cloud options.

Simple Interoperability

With Isilon, you can streamline your storage infrastructure by consolidating large-scale unstructured data assets thus eliminating silos of storage. Isilon includes integrated support for a wide range of industry-standard protocols, including Internet Protocols IPv4, and IPv6, NFS, SMB, HTTP, FTP and HDFS. As a result, you can simplify workflows, accelerate business analytics projects, support cloud infrastructure initiatives, unlock data capital and get more value from your enterprise applications and data.

Enterprise Data Protection and Management Software

Massive stores of data present unique management challenges including disaster recovery, quota management and offsite replication. Isilon data protection and management software provides you with powerful tools that help you protect your data assets, control costs and optimize the storage resources and system performance of your big data environment.
