Isilon

Columbia University's Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics has selected Isilon's scale-out network-attached storage system to support its research efforts, the EMC subsidiary said this week.

Isilon has released two network-attached storage hardware platforms in a bid to address the challenges of "big data" environments, which are generally on the order of tens to hundreds, and even into the thousands, of terabytes.

The Medical College of Wisconsin's Human and Molecular Genetics Center chose to consolidate its genomic data processing, analysis, and archiving onto Isilon's X-Series system.

The institute will use Isilon's 72000X file system to provide a shared resource for its next generation sequence data storage needs, the company said.

MPI will use the X-Series storage system to consolidate project-related home directories, file shares, and scientific data archives into a single storage resource, Isilon said.

The company said that the new applications will enable IT departments to manage data, consolidate applications, and scale out a single storage resource.

The firms said that they aim to eliminate bottlenecks in high-throughput sequencing workflows.
