It's a CLUSTERPLUCK: Isilon array gobbles 4TB drives

Third more in same space

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Isilon, EMC's scale-out filer product, now stores 33 per cent more data after adding support for 4TB disk drives.

It used to top out at just over 15PB in a single pool, with an NL-Series system using 3TB SATA disks.

Now it can store up to 20PB in a single volume with 4TB SATA spinners, and, EMC says, use 30 per cent less power per rack.

The maximum per rack capacity is now 1,440TB with NL400 nodes, a 360TB increase.

It means seven NL400 nodes with 4TB drives are needed for a petabyte of capacity instead of 10 nodes with 3TB drives.

Rapid growth of data is forcing companies to move quickly on getting more capacity for their buck, so EMC is likely to do well with this one. ®
