Protection for Your Most Important Asset: Your Data

As enterprise datasets continue to expand to unprecedented sizes, data protection has never been more important.  In addition, enterprise Service Level Agreements require ever-lower Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO). EMC Isilon delivers a wide range of solutions to protect your data utilizing industry standard NDMP, Fibre Channel (FC) tape, or by utilizing Isilon as a deep disk archive or target for backups.

  • Optimal Protection: The FlexProtect feature in the EMC Isilon OneFS operating system protects against data loss at a level beyond any other storage solution – with N+4 data protection.
  • Fast Backup with Fibre Channel drives: Isilon can also be used as backup or archive target with our more dense storage and partnerships with vendors like CommVault allow us to offer a data reduction solution on disk.
  • Speed: The speed of SSD drives are important for datasets that have millions of files and speed treewalk on large datasets. With SSD technology in the EMC Isilon X-Series, NL-Series and S-Series EMC Isilon delivers fast access you need.
