Dell EMC PowerScale, the world’s most flexible scale-out NAS solution, is designed to be flexible and reliable at any scale. Regardless of the type of data, where it lives, or how big it gets, your data lake always stays simple to manage, simple to grow, simple to protect, and simple enough to handle the most demanding workloads of today and tomorrow.
PowerScale NAS was designed and developed for storing, managing, and accessing digital content and other unstructured data. A PowerScale clustered storage system is composed of three or more nodes. Each node is a self-contained, rack-mountable device that contains industry-standard hardware such as disk drives, CPUs, memory, and network interfaces. These nodes are integrated with the proprietary OneFS operating system, which is a distributed networked file system that unifies a cluster of nodes into a single shared resource.
Dell EMC PowerScale is uniquely differentiated from traditional storage to enable organizations to manage high volumes of video data with greater reliability and scalability. With traditional NAS solutions, the larger the data environment becomes, the more complex and time-consuming it is to manage the growing number of storage silos. And at some point, system performance begins to degrade. The PowerScale OneFS is a single file system with single namespace, which enables a single volume to be shared by all the camera streams—thus saving enormous amounts of time in initial set-up. Isilon enables organizations to build a scale-out data lake where they can store their video data at lower management costs and eliminate islands or silos of storage.
