EMC Isilon OneFS 7.0 Scale-out NAS Operating System Now Available
EMC Corporation today announced that the Isilon OneFS 7.0 scale-out NAS operating system will be generally available this week. According to EMC, OneFS 7.0 brings a 25% increase in single file system throughput, caching capabilities that reduce latency by 50% for I/O-intensive applications, and tighter integration with VMware.
OneFS 7.0 security features include SEC 17a-4 compliance for tamper-proof data protection, roles-based administration for separate storage and file system access to prevent unauthorized change to files, and the creation of isolated storage pools with authentication zones. Improved VMware integration leverages VMware’s VAAI and VASA APIs to accelerate and simplify scale-out NAS for virtualization.
