EMC Isilon OneFS 7.0 is generally available this week.
Ian Patterson, Systems Consultant, CSR plc
"Our OneFS 7.0 performance testing was impressive. We experienced close to a 2x improvement in single stream writes, exactly as advertised. Read speeds are also high, as we are seeing 8Gbps of throughput on 10Gbps network cards. Add these improvements to the already resilient, scalable and easy-to-manage OneFS file system, and it's clear why we can now simultaneously power up and fine tune our storage with EMC Isilon."Vinicius Viteri, Storage Administrator, Locaweb "OneFS 7.0 is designed to reduce NFS latency — a critical feature for scale-out storage. Additionally, the security features, such as authentication zones, both simplify management and further tighten security, enabling us to put the right resources toward retaining and protecting all of our data. This EMC Isilon release is fast, smart and simple — exactly what we need to step up our storage capabilities." Channel Reseller Quotes: Olivier Gaumont, Director of Servers and Storage, Bull "We consider the release of the OneFS 7.0 operating system to be a landmark in the evolution of EMC's Isilon storage. Bull is a partner of choice for organizations in the area of Digital Capital Management, and OneFS 7.0 opens tremendous opportunities for our customers to derive more business benefit and to better manage the rapidly growing unstructured data within their core business computing environments. Additionally, One FS 7.0 will enable Bull to accelerate its presence in markets where Isilon already has a proven track record of excellence such as life sciences, media and energy."
