Modernize your deep archive storage with a high-density design that saves data center space. Keep archive data safe with a choice of enterprise-grade data protection and security options.

Isilon A2000 is scale-out NAS built for growing archive needs. No matter how large your data environment becomes, your Isilon A2000 archive solution remains simple to manage.

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.

Features:

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.
