ServerStack deploys Isilon Scale-Out Storage to Simplify Data Management for Customers

We are happy to announce today that we have finished our deployment of Isilon scale-out storage as the primary storage resource for our managed hosting services. Using Isilon’s NL-Series, powered by the OneFS® operating system, allows us to provide our customers with on-demand storage resources and enable them to scale applications storage needs without limitations.

“Our customers expect their IT resources on-demand, meaning we can’t use traditional storage since it doesn’t scale quickly or cost-effectively,” said Ben Uretsky, CEO, ServerStack. “Isilon solves this problem because it actually is on-demand storage. Now, our customers can scale out applications in a single share without worrying about storage limitations, while management stays simple on our end.”

The announcement comes months after tests out our facilities in the NYC Metro Area and San Jose have shown Isilon to be a reliable, flexible, and most importantly scalable product that allowed our largest customers to continue growing their online assets without being forced to rewrite their applications.

“ServerStack is one of many hosting and cloud providers helping usher in an era of shared, on-demand IT, which will enable greater business efficiency, cost reduction and productivity,” said Sam Grocott, vice president of marketing, Isilon. “By using Isilon to simplify data management and eliminate storage restrictions for its customer base, ServerStack is positioned to be a leader in managed hosting services for years to come.”
