Isilon Boosts NAS Performance

Arthur Cole

Isilon Systems is claiming record-level file-based NAS performance aboard its 10 GbE-based storage clusters through the latest release of its Accelerator-x software.


The company says the new package, when coupled with the OneFS 5.0 operating system and dual-quad Intel processors, provides 400 MBps single-stream and 700 MBps dual-stream across a single node. When packaged with a standard Isilon cluster, the company says its can deliver 20 GBps of aggregate throughput.


The system has been rated at more than 26,000 IOPS under the SPEC SFS benchmark, even though its costs only about a third of a traditional NAS filer head.


Isilon has already forged seamless integration for the Accelerator-x system into 10 GbE solutions from Force10 Networks, Fujitsu and Chelsio, allowing the system to be added to a cluster in less than 15 seconds.
