Dell EMC Webinar: Scale As You Grow With Isilon Express

By 2020 the digital universe – the data we create and manage annually – will reach 44 zettabytes, or 44 trillion gigabytes. Most of that data is unstructured, which is any kind of data that isn’t represented by a formal database structure. Photos, videos, day-to-day documents, presentations, spreadsheets, and device-generated logs and reports are all examples. Many small-to-medium businesses are struggling with managing this deluge of unstructured data; as business needs grow, requirements to handle the data grow and change: like adhering to mandated compliance rules, increasing data protection and resiliency, and tailoring storage requirements to data value in order to improve cost/capacity/performance ratios.


In this webinar, Dell EMC will explore how Isilon Express addresses adapting to changing business needs in order to keep costs low, while still satisfying users’ and IT needs that pertain to:

• SIMPLICITY of administration and use. Simplicity should be retained as the NAS grows–a fraction of a full-time employee for a petabyte of storage is a good metric.
• FLEXIBILITY of growth. As your installation grows, you need the ability to match storage needs with the value of your data by associating data value with different capacity/performance tiers.
• DATA PROTECTION needs. Your NAS should provide a highly resilient storage environment that supersedes traditional approaches (like RAID). For data backup and recovery, snapshots should be fast and incur low overhead.
• SECURITY REQUIREMENTS. Including Write Once, Read Many (WORM) protection against accidental, premature or malicious alteration or deletion of your data. The webinar will also cover compliance rules like the stringent SEC 17a-4 requirements and roles-based Access Zones that create a strict separation between storage administrators and users.
