SEATTLE, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Isilon(R) Systems (Nasdaq: ISLN), the leader in clustered storage, today announced that Isilon Chief Technology Officer Paul Rutherford will address the growing data storage challenges facing life science research organizations as part of the Harvard Medical School's BioMedical HPC Leadership Summit, October 5-7, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Mr. Rutherford will be participating on an Executive Panel, featuring representatives from Intel, the SAS Institute and others, focused on overcoming the challenges associated with managing, archiving and retrieving large and rapidly growing stores of critical research data in Petabyte-scale life science and bioinformatics environments. The Executive Panel is today, October 7, from 9:00-10:15 a.m. ET, at the Harvard Medical School Conference Center in Boston, MA.

"In today's life science research environments, the amount of data being created by next-generation instruments threatens to overwhelm existing storage infrastructures, slowing research productivity and dramatically increasing costs. To stay ahead of such extreme data growth and maximize the value of this truly mission-critical information, research organizations must be able to efficiently store, access and analyze this data at an unprecedented rate," said Paul Rutherford, CTO, Isilon Systems. "Isilon clustered storage, with its highly scalable, high-performance, pay-as-you-grow architecture, is specifically designed to effectively store and manage rapidly growing stores of file-based information -- such as biomedical research data -- helping leading life science organizations to focus on their science, not their storage."

In addition to Mr. Rutherford's participation in the Executive Panel, Matthew Trunnell, Manager of Research Computing at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, an Isilon customer, will be presenting as part of an end-user panel on Managing Biomedical Storage Growth, today, from 11:15 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. ET.
