Amortization: The use of Isilons clustered storage systems represents an economically viable solution for the storage and management of file-based data. This is a study conducted recently by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Isilon among clients of the company. The risk-adjusted profitability an average 125 percent figured the amortization period of five months, this. “The full study titled the total economic impact of Isilon’s clustered storage system” is available on the website of the company (www.isilon.com). Range of solutions the multiple award-winning clustered storage solutions IQ X series (IQ 1920, 3000, 6000, 9000 and 12,000) are the industry’s only systems that work with a single file system, and set the standard for scale-out file-storage-architectures. Their use allows enterprise-wide distributed common and direct access to the digital data sets in memory pools merge and users Information to give. This necessary intelligent functions are on the file system provided OneFS; This combines traditional storage architectures such as file system, Volume Manager and RAID makes sense in a layer of software.

As well as the IQ family are the Accelerator X solutions, as well as the extension node EX 6000, 9000 and 12,000 operated with OneFS. The offer is rounded off by a software package that includes the applications SnapshotIQ, SmartConnect and SmartQuotas SyncIQ. These are, inter alia, to ensure maximum data security or to automate certain administrative tasks. The market in June 2008 by the analyst of IDC in a study titled got files? “The expanding options for file level storage” published results emphasize that in the future there is no way to scale-out file-storage-solutions leads. The reason is, is that more and more file-based data must be stored according to the market analysts this year for the first time above the proportion block-based data. 2011 75 percent of the capacity of disk-based storage systems of storage file-based information should be reserved. The ongoing increase in file-based information analyst voices provides companies from many sectors in the coming five years with major challenges. In the data centers of companies active administrators will have to deal increasingly with storage and management issues and their main tasks include archiving, as well as the management of file-based data.

To efficiently cope with this, a careful evaluation of the used storage solutions is essential. This especially the performance, scalability, and operational efficiency of the systems in the emphasis is. Brad Nisbet, Research Manager, IDC storage system. Investigations conducted by us clearly show that increasing interest in clustered storage solutions that rely on scale-out architectures. This is especially true when company performance their storage infrastructure improve, but their complexity and want to lower the operation costs. Because advance can be seen, the unstructured data will make up the bulk of the information to be stored, companies are well-advised to include clustered storage solutions shortlisted. Because the systems meet current as well as future requirements in terms of performance, scalability, and cost and offer a maximum profitability.” Pushan gutters, Research Director, Gartner Tina Billo
