EMC Isilon Offers Storage Solutions That Linearly Grow in Speed and Capacity

EMC Isilon

Charles Sevior, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of EMC for the Asia Pacific and Japan region, made a visit to the country and talked about some updates on the Isilon division at an exclusive media roundtable discussion. As CTO, Sevior talks with customers to learn their business requirements and issues, and introduce new product roadmaps and developments in Isilon. A division of EMC’s Information Infrastructure group, Isilon is among the company’s emerging solutions. Acquired in 2010, Isilon is different from other EMC storage solutions. Isilon’s scale-out solutions offer storage that grows in a linear fashion in terms of both capacity and speed by means of adding nodes to the infrastructure. Isilon deviates from the traditional storage perspective wherein speed plateaus as storage capacity increases. Some areas where Isilon can be useful include life sciences, media and entertainment, oil and gas exploration, research and development (R&D), telecommunications, and video surveillance. These industries output a huge amount of data that is not only meant to be kept, but is also needed to be analyzed and updated from time to time. In the Philippines, Isilon’s potentials are seen in the fields of R&D and media, particularly in broadcasting and cable service. EMC also sees the application of Isilon in video surveillance in line with the growing casino market in the country. Isilon is one of the fastest growing divisions inside EMC, currently serving around 4,000 customers worldwide.
