Isilon, a division of EMC, is the global leader in scale-out storage. Our nearly 4000 customers attest to that. Our mission is to remove the barriers that exist between businesses and their data. And our goal is to help customers get to the information they need, manipulate it and act on it.

We started out by asking different questions about enterprise data storage. And our answers have fundamentally changed the storage industry.

Our scale-out storage platform is a powerful, yet simple way to manage data and applications, enabling enterprises to expect much more from their storage. Limitless capacity in a single file system? Yes. Unparalleled performance? Yes. Application consolidation?Yes. At Isilon, we're challenging enterprises to think differently about their storage, because when they do, they'll recognize there’s a better, simpler way.

Why better? Why simpler?

Because for many enterprises, storage has been a frustratingly complex and costly challenge that gets worse as datacenters grow and business needs change. At Isilon, we’ve taken a different path.  We engineered the complexity out of the system to offer customers a storage platform that’s simple to install, manage and scale. And it stays that way no matter how much storage is added, how much performance is required or how business needs change in the future.

Our Products

Isilon's Scale-out Storage Platform, powered by our OneFS® operating system, combines a robust suite of management applications and enterprise-class hardware to deliver meaningful and sustainable productivity enhancements. Isilon's three product lines provide a broad range of options to address enterprise storage needs. Our software applications provide enterprise-grade storage management, protection, and distribution capabilities.

Why Isilon?

Whether enterprises choose Isilon to store massive amounts of data in a single file system, to boost storage performance and/or to consolidate dozens of applications, Isilon's three dimensions of scale and extraordinary simplicity stand at the forefront of enterprise storage innovation. When considering enterprise storage options, think simple. Think Isilon.

Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Seattle, WA (US) Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Interview Details Age and gender discrimination so horrifically blatant I had to recommend the interviewer stop talking and call in HR because he was breaking the law. I think this precipitated in HR putting everyone through interview training. (duh).

Of course they offered me a job and I regretfully took it…

More of a comment that the guys would not be comfortable working with someone like me. That was difficult. The guy who was supposed to test my knowledge seemed to be playing with me, as he asked me a… Answer Question
