ISilon gets taken out by EMC

Looks like EMC did it after all, buying Isilon for $2.25 Billion. Probably the biggest tech deal for the Seattle area for quite some time.

I haven’t paid too much attention to Isilon recently but it does seem like they have a nice product for the scale out media space, lots of big files and high throughput. Isilon, along with Panasas seem to be unique in tightly integrating the storage controller with the NAS side, while other solutions were purely gateway approaches of one sort or another.

So who’s next?
