Innovative New Technology for IT Infrastructure

SEATTLE, May 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Isilon(R) Systems (Nasdaq: ISLN), the leader in clustered storage, today announced that Isilon's X-Series was named "Best of Show," for the second year in a row, at Bio-IT World Conference and Expo in the event's Information Technology (IT) Infrastructure category. The Bio-IT World "Best of Show" Awards, selected by Bio-IT World magazine editors and leading industry experts, spotlight new products that demonstrate exceptional technology innovation across the life sciences research, discovery, and clinical trials process.

"Selected by prominent judges with years of experience in the bio-science fields, the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo's Best of Show Awards winners consist of products within IT, informatics and life science technologies that demonstrate innovation and leadership in their respective markets," said Kevin Davies, Editor-in-Chief, Bio-IT World. "These awards recognize the products that are fueling tomorrow's discoveries."

"As life sciences and drug discovery move out of the Petri dish and into the datacenter, innovations in information technology are dramatically accelerating the discovery process and enabling scientific breakthroughs on an unprecedented scale," said Paul Rutherford, CTO, Isilon Systems. "In this era of research and discovery, data literally serves as the lifeblood of scientific advancement and Isilon's clustered storage solutions -- which deliver 100 times the capacity and 20 times the performance of traditional NAS and SAN systems -- enable leading life science organizations to transform this data into breakthroughs."

With medical researchers continuing to focus on using massive datasets to provide new insight into the treatment of human disease, scalable, high-performance, easy to use storage is critical to powering the next generation of life sciences research and drug discovery. Isilon's X-Series clustered storage systems scale up to 1.6 Petabytes of capacity and 10 GB/s of throughput in a single file system and single volume, enabling life sciences organizations to manage and maintain enormous datasets while making this critical information immediately available for data-intensive visualization and modeling applications.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's Louis Warschaw Prostate Cancer Center is using Isilon IQ as a centralized, highly reliable, easily managed and highly scalable storage architecture to support its leading-edge cancer research initiatives. Meanwhile, UCLA's Laboratory of Neuro Imaging has deployed Isilon to store one of the world's largest repositories of high resolution neuro imaging data. These organizations are among many life sciences leaders using Isilon clustered storage to dramatically reduce the time and resources required to manage data, enabling them to refocus vital resources towards interpreting data and advancing research.
