Dell taking dedicated Isilon NAS instances to Google Cloud
@Google and @DellEMC have teamed up to offer #Isilon NAS instances within the Google Cloud Platform, the companies have announced at @DellTechnologies World on Monday. Under the offering, Dell said it will provide 24×7 monitoring and maintenance to the dedicated Isilon instances, with management still happening under the OneFS interface. By allowing companies to have dedicated hardware, Dell claimed it would alleviate data compliance and security concerns that may arise from workloads being in the public cloud. EMC picked up Isilon Systems in November 2010 for $2.25 billion, before Dell bought EMC for $67 billion in August 2016 to create the largest privately-held technology company.
