Isilon Customer Testimonials by INDUSTRY

University of Michigan

“The underlying design of Isilon clustered storage, combined with its tightly-integrated, easy-to-use management utilities, means that not only can our Isilon system easily scale to meet the huge demands of our project, but we spend less time upgrading and managing it,”

“Data storage represents a mission critical resource for LONI and we knew that whatever system we selected, it had to meet a broad set of criteria that included system and network performance, simplified management and perhaps most important of all, the ability to quickly scale. Deploying Isilon IQ was incredibly easy—an Isilon engineer came to our data center at 8AM and by noon our clustered storage system was up and running. To add storage capabilities to our existing SAN is typically a four-day process. Now if we want to add another Isilon storage node, it takes all of 10 minutes.”

“Isilon’s approach struck us as very innovative on two counts: modularity and performance. The system’s modularity means we can increase storage capacity without reducing performance. Equally, we can increase bandwidth performance without altering storage capacity. Another great feature of the Isilon solution is how easy it is to administer, which is important for our teams. We have incredible flexibility and no worries about meeting future requirements — which is critical as we have to ensure permanent archiving and access of our collection.”
