Dell EMC Isilon scale-out Network Attached Storage (NAS) can be used for additional cold bucket storage, and frozen bucket storage.
The Isilon H-Series is a flexible and comprehensive storage product that provides large capacity and high performance.
Isilon storage uses intelligent software to scale data across many commodity hardware units, enabling explosive growth in performance and capacity. The Isilon revolutionary storage architecture, OneFS operating system, offers a single-clustered file system.
OneFS provides value by incorporating parallelism at a deep level in the operating system. Virtually, the system is distributed across multiple hardware units. This parallelism allows OneFS to scale in every dimension as the infrastructure is expanded. By providing multiple redundancy levels, the system has no single point of failure. As a result, OneFS can grow to a multi-petabyte scale while providing greater reliability than traditional systems.
OneFS runs on Isilon scale-out NAS hardware, ensuring that Isilon benefits from the ever-improving cost and efficiency curves of commodity hardware. OneFS allows you to add hardware to or remove hardware from the cluster at any time. The data is protected from hardware changes. This feature alleviates the cost and burden of data migrations, and hardware refreshes.
