Dell EMC Isilon S210

Bring ultra-fast performance to your file-based applications with the Dell EMC Isilon S210. This network-attached storage (NAS) platform offers more than twice the performance of the previous generation.

Isilon S210 is a great match for high-performance computing workloads that depend on massive amounts of primary file storage or metadata-intensive operations. Use cases include design and simulation, digital media, financial market data, and life sciences research.

Scale from a 3-node cluster with 16 TB of capacity to a 144-node cluster with over 4 PB of capacity, united by one file system. You can grow while keeping management simple. See and compare Isilon scale-out NAS.

Key features:

  • Provides up to 3M IOPS and 175 GB/s of aggregate throughput per cluster
