The system scales to multiple petabytes under a single global namespace
, no client-side software is required, and data can be easily and transparently moved between or among controllers and storage tiers to applications.
Because the user is accessing files through the namespace
, he is transparently redirected to the backup filer in New Jersey, and is able to access the file, as if nothing had changed.
Diverse Workload Support - By significantly accelerating namespace
operations, Isilon's 5000S-SSD, 10000X-SSD and 32000X-SSD deliver lower latency and increased IOPS for a wide range of core enterprise applications, including server virtualization, EDA and financial quantitative analysis, as well as traditional NAS applications such as home directories and data replication.
The goals of a namespace
are to: 1) shield users from the complexities of the storage architecture, and 2) enable the administrator to manage the physical layer without affecting how users access files.
ONStor GNS is a highly available cluster-wide namespace
that virtualizes multiple physical file systems across both ONStor virtual servers and Windows file servers to present a single logical file system to end users and applications.
With advantages like namespace
virtualization and customization, system administrators using File Director can feel confident managing data across heterogeneous environments.
, they will find over 99% of the names taken in.
the revision of the alignment of ISBD and RDA namespaces

host for the industry and have committed to helping in making it a successful and viable namespace
Cluster is scheduled to launch in August 2011.
At the heart of a File Area Network, lies a virtualisation engine which has as its foundation some form of namespace
providing an abstraction layer between the users and physical storage.
technology provides administrators with a virtual layer in the storage infrastructure between client systems and the storage device, decoupling the relationship between directory structures and the directory's physical location.
