Financial Services Solutions

From hedge funds to currency analysis, Isilon helps financial institutions around the world reduce turnaround time and increase the depth of quantitative analysis while reducing storage costs. With Isilon, you can accelerate both the speed and depth of financial analysis – critical to your bottom line and competitive advantage.

 

Cost Savings

Minimize turnaround time and increase the depth of quantitative analysis while reducing storage operating costs. The EMC Isilon scale-out storage platform enables 50% or better turnaround time at a lower cost than traditional storage architectures.  With Isilon you can expand the globally coherent cache independent of storage to improve depth of analysis.

 

Efficiency

With Isilon you can use the right kind of storage for the specific task – high concurrent throughput for regulatory and other reporting functions, high I/O performance for simulation and modeling of financial instruments and nearline, cost-effective storage for archiving.

 

Unlike traditional SAN or NAS storage, Isilon products can scale both capacity and performance while remaining simple to manage

The Isilon S-Series is ideal for complex quantitative financial analysis tied to high performance compute clusters with high I/O performance and a large, scalable, globally coherent cache.  In cases where there are many files and datasets that are used in analysis, the S-Series accelerates the overall time for processing and analysis.

The Isilon X-Series is ideal for traditional quantitative analysis, portfolio analysis, compliance checking, risk analysis and other line-of-business workflows with high concurrent access and ability to scale capacity without changing namespace. A single namespace greatly simplifies reuse models and algorithms and can also save significant set-up time for a new project.

Leveraging SSDs specifically for metadata, the X-Series with SSD has a unique balance of performance and cost to accelerate metadata-intensive namespace operations.

Because of regulatory and other compliance requirements, the Isilon NL-Series for nearline archiving is a very cost-effective way of providing both a single namespace for ease of management and high speed backup to tape with the Isilon Backup Accelerator.
