About Isilon and ECS
Isilon is a well-established, market-leading product, with more than 10 years of market growth and over 7,000 customers. As the industry’s number one scale-out NAS, it combines simplicity of deployment and management with enterprise-grade protection and security to help customers eliminate silos and consolidate their workloads.
The Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) object storage platform is designed specifically for next-generation apps that demand massive unstructured data storage capacity, global access and cloud-scale economics. With ECS, customers can accelerate cloud native application development using a consumption model of their choice: as an appliance, software running on Dell servers, or as a service.
The Gartner report concludes “Dell EMC can best describe Gartner’s evaluation of both Isilon and Elastic Cloud Storage as products that should be on a customer’s shortlist for large scale, unstructured data workloads because of Dell EMC’s positive track record and support capabilities.”
