We’re on a roll!  EMC Isilon InsightIQ 4.0 is available now. If your mission includes monitoring and analyzing the performance and file systems of Isilon clusters, InsightIQ is your hero.  It provides powerful performance monitoring and reporting tools to help you maximize the performance of your EMC Isilon scale-out storage system. InsightIQ includes innovative, advanced analytics to optimize applications, correlate workflow and network events, and accurately forecast future storage needs.

InsightIQ 4.0 Cool New Features

You can use InsightIQ to check that your cluster is operating at peak performance, compare changes in performance across metrics such as network traffic, client activity, and CPU usage, correlate critical cluster events with performance changes, determine how workflows, software, and systems affect cluster performance over time, create reports to help identify performance bottlenecks or to validate a theory, and more.  And of course, InsightIQ 4.0 is fully compatible with OneFS 8.0.0.0 and IsilonSD Edge, right down to InsightIQ cleverly leveraging the benefits of the redesigned OneFS 8.0.0 File System Analytics job. And InsightIQ 4.0 is now available as a $0 licensed product, which means that you can get community support through the EMC Community Network (ECN) Isilon Community.

But wait, there’s more:

  • You can monitor and predict usage of Isilon storage clusters. Prediction is based on the rate of growth of capacity usage over time and extrapolated to identify when the capacity reaches 90%.
  • You can take advantage of the enhanced dashboard, including at-a-glance infographics that provide current health, status, and operations information for your monitored cluster:

  • You can easily monitor IPv6 data breakouts. InsightIQ 4.0 reports IPv6 breakouts as separate clients instead of presenting them as one big generic IPv6 client group.
  • You can optionally communicate telemetry data to EMC through EMC Secure Remote Support.

Watch out, world: IsilonSD Edge is here! IsilonSD Edge is the software-defined OneFS storage solution you’ve been waiting for. IsilonSD Edge is deployed as a virtual instance of OneFS on a VMware ESXi host running on industry-standard hardware. It runs Isilon OneFS 8.0, so you get the same core functionality as the latest OneFS release while enabling your remote sites to have their own on-site storage solutions. That means that you can extend your data lake from your core data center to your edge locations, including remote and branch offices.  Bonus:  you can download and use a production-ready version of IsilonSD Edge for free! The free license allows you to deploy as many clusters as you’d like for as long as you’d like. You also get access to resources available on the EMC Community Network (ECN) Isilon community.

Go get it!

Download IsilonSD Edge here. While you’re there, check out the cool videos showing IsilonSD Edge in action.
