Welcome Message from John Hayden, VP Software Engineering, Isilon Storage Division

NOTE: This topic is part of the Uptime Information Hub.

 

Hello Valued Dell EMC Customers,

 

I want to personally welcome you to the Isilon Uptime Info Hub. At Dell EMC, we strive to deliver proactive and preemptive support to assist you in achieving optimum information availability for your Dell EMC storage solutions. Part of that, naturally, is sharing our best practices, and our accumulated knowledge around the best ways we have seen our products deployed and serviced. An important additional aspect, one that we are excited to begin, is sharing a bit of an 'inside of engineering view' straight from the team who designs, implements, and deploys our products. This Information Hub shares and describes some of the best practices that will assist you in achieving the highest level of operational reliability for your environment.

 

You will find valuable information about ways to:

  • Protect your data for continuous availability
  • Maintain a healthy Isilon cluster to maximize uptime


along with:

  • Best practices when upgrading OneFS
  • Updates about OneFS target code and latest software/firmware releases
  • Information about Dell EMC Technical and Security Advisories
  • Tips on advanced troubleshooting and performance monitoring


We will provide inside information from our engineering teams—-all shared in the effort to socialize our best practices and information to allow greater uptime, system resilience, and peak performance in your environment.


We hope this information is valuable to you, and we are always looking for feedback and ideas for future content. If you have any comments or suggestions about these articles, please email the Isilon Engineering Team at isicontent@emc.com.
