Isilon feels need for speed, unleashes swarm of 'Mavericks'

You know what your problem is, Maverick? Huh?

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

EMC has released the "Mavericks" update of its Isilon scale-out filer operating system, OneFS, aiming to be the top scale-out filer gun in the enterprise sector.

Isilon filers cluster together in swarms to produce more than 15 petabytes of file storage resources in a single pool with over 100GB/se of throughput and data striped across all the nodes in the cluster. The operating system is called OneFS and "Mavericks" is EMC's code name for the v7.0 release. EMC says the update introduces:

  • a 25 per cent increase in single file system throughput,
  • extra caching to lower IO latency by up to 50 per cent,
  • integration with VMware's VAAI and VASA APIs,
  • compliance with SEC 17a-4 requirements for tamper-proof data protection,
  • roles-based administration for separate storage and file system access to prevent unauthorised change to files, and
  • creation of secure, isolated storage pools with authentication zones.

EMC has previously claimed Mavericks will:

  • Simplify and accelerate disaster recovery and business continuity at scale, with integrated, push-button failover and failback capabilities — reducing both RPO and RTO for mission critical applications
  • Provide near-immediate restoration of snapshot backups to recover critical files in the event of accidental deletion, corruptions or modifications of data
  • Incorporate a new Platform API to provide 3rd-party ISVs and enterprise IT with a more robust automation and control interface to OneFS.

OneFS ticks VMware virtualisation, speed and security boxes, making it a worthwhile upgrade for customers. The OS is generally available this week, the week of the SC 12 supercomputing conference in Salt Lake City. ®
