A single file system with on-the-fly scalability up to 2.3PB and 20GBs throughput.

Isilon’s 5th generation clustered storage solution is a highly versatile scale-out storage architecture built to meet the ever increasing demands of enterprise file storage. Isilon IQ is designed for scalability, performance and ease-of-use, allowing you to seamlessly grow your storage as you grow your business.

By combining Isilon’s revolutionary OneFSĀ® operating system software with the latest advances in industry-standard hardware, Isilon delivers modular, pay-as-you-grow, enterprise-class clustered storage systems that offer unprecedented storage scalability and performance, while dramatically reducing the cost and complexity of storing, managing and sharing file-based information.

OneFS Operating System Software
OneFS provides the intelligence behind the Isilon IQ clustered storage system, orchestrating the operation of every system component, or node, into a seamless, unified whole. It combines the three layers of traditional storage architectures – file system, volume manager and RAID – into one software layer, creating a single intelligent file system that spans all nodes within a cluster. OneFS combines mission-critical reliability and high availability with state-of-the-art data protection to help storage administrators worry less and do more. More about OneFS

Isilon IQ Platform Nodes
The Isilon IQ clustered storage system is made up of various capacity or performance “nodes”, clustered together by OneFS to form a single, unified file system that can linearly or independently scale capacity up to 2.3 PBs and performance up to 20 GB/second. Using any combination of nodes, cluster configurations can be modified quickly and cost-effectively to accommodate new business dynamics.

X-Series Storage Nodes
Built for maximum flexibility – Enables linear scalability of capacity and performance.

Accelerator-x Performance Extension Nodes
Built for maximum performance – Enables independent scaling of system performance without adding capacity.

EX Series Capacity Extension Nodes
Built for maximum capacity – Enables independent scaling of system capacity without adding performance.

Enterprise Application Software
As clustered storage becomes the de facto standard for file-based storage, the need for software applications to meet critical data protection, data access, data management and data availability needs becomes ever more important. In response, Isilon has developed and delivered the industry’s first suite of robust clustered storage software applications for the enterprise. Application Software Overview
