You can use Dell EMC PowerScale scale-out Network Attached Storage (NAS) platforms for additional cold and frozen bucket storage. The Isilon H- and A-series are particularly suited to host this data as they offer both hybrid and deep storage. The Isilon H-series hybrid models offer a flash tier for increased performance, while the Isilon A-series models offer dense archival storage for large-scale data retention at a lower cost.
PowerScale storage systems run the intelligent OneFS operating system to scale data across many hardware nodes, enabling explosive growth in performance and capacity. Orchestrated by OneFS, all components in a cluster work to create a unified pool of highly efficient storage—with a storage utilization rate of up to 80 percent. SmartDedupe data deduplication provides additional reductions in data storage physical requirements such as power and footprint. The OneFS AutoBalance function enables you to add or remove cluster nodes quickly and easily without downtime, manual data migration, or application logic reconfiguration. This function provides multiple redundancy levels, eliminates hardware refreshes, and saves precious IT resources.
With up to 252 nodes in a cluster, you can scale both capacity and performance in a few minutes to meet your specific business needs—all without any additional IT burden.
