Shiny Clustered Storage

Isilon the nice bods who make the shiny, shiny clustered storage we use at work have just launched a new midrange product aimed at people who don't need quite at much data as we do.

A cluster will be at a minimum 3 of the 1U IQ200 nodes, giving 6Tb of space (usable space varies depending on your protection level, but n+1 is about 4Tb or so, I'd guess).

If you're looking for fast, scalable storage but don't need huge quantities of it I'd suggest you take a gander.
