When ultimate IOPS performance is mission-critical, the Isilon IQ S-Series delivers. The Isilon IQ S-Series product line built on Isilons proven scale-out storage technology accelerates business and increases speed-to-market by providing ultra-fast primary storage for your mission-critical, highly transactional, and random access file-based applications.
Performance: The Isilon S-Series surpasses the limits of traditional primary file storage, providing over 1.7 million IOPS, which is 30 times more than the leading Fibre Channel NAS solution, and 45 gigabytes per second (GBps) of aggregate throughput, all from a single file system. To accomplish these extraordinary speeds, the S-Series combines the power of enterprise-class 15,000 RPM Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) drive technology, Quad-GbE front-end networking, dual quad-core Intel CPUs, a high-performance InfiniBand back-end, and up to 2.3 TB of globally coherent cache. In addition, with SSD technology for file-system metadata, the Isilon S-Series delivers additional performance gains for metadata intensive operations while improving overall latency.
Simplicity: The S-Series, built on the same principles of simplicity as all Isilon products, provides ultimate ease of use. You can install, configure and have an Isilon S-Series cluster online in under 10 minutes, without the need for expensive, specialized integration and configuration services.
Economics: With its impressive performance benchmarks, the Isilon S-Series affords the best dollar per I/O solution available a full thirty percent better than other enterprise storage solutions. And, with the proven high-utilization factor of Isilon scale-out storage over 80 percent versus 50 percent for traditional NAS and SAN overall storage efficiency is significantly improved while initial acquisition costs are greatly reduced.
