As part of the EMC World festivities, EMC's Isilon group is announcing a few new features available today -- as well as previewing their next release, dubbed Waikiki.
Even with my obvious EMC bias, I can make a strong argument that OneFS is now clearly in a class of its own: architecture, functionality, robustness, performance, efficiency, etc. You could teach an advanced course in file system design and use OneFS as a perfect example.
The gap between OneFS and everything else shows every sign of widening over time. The Isilon team now uses a fast-cadence development model, and we should be expecting regular drops of tick-tock functionality on a 6 month cadence going forward.
Join me for a quick recap of "what's new" in the OneFS world -- there's a lot to like.
