EMC sneak-previews Nitro high-performance NAS

By

EMC used the final general session at the EMC World 2016 conference to preview a forthcoming member of its Isilon storage family.

Isilon Nitro is the name given to a forthcoming all-flash, high-performance version of Isilon, EMC's scale-out NAS product.

"This is a groundbreaking product," EMC emerging technology division president CJ Desai told the audience.

Isilon Nitro will scale up to a full rack, and then scale out to multiple racks with over 400 nodes in total.

A maximum-size system will provide 100PB of storage with 1.5TBps of bandwidth, he said.

Isilon Nitro is said to be of particular interest to the electronic design and film and television markets, where file sizes are growing rapidly.

Desai noted that an unspecified competitor had announced a rival product, but said Isilon Nitro will provide fifty times the bandwidth and capacity at half the cost.

Isilon Nitro will go into production in 2017 following a beta release in the second half of this year.
