Simplifies integration of ISP and ISP+ with scale-out storage
dsmISI ISP simplifies the integration of IBM Spectrum Protect (ISP) and IBM Spectrum Protect Plus (ISP+) with Dell EMC Isilon OneFS and significantly increases backup and restore times.
In principle, dsmISI ISP implements dynamic multipathing, which automatically spreads reads and writes symmetrically across all available network paths and Isilon nodes, guaranteeing maximum throughput for any attached ISP server. dsmISI is installed on the operating system – such as Linux, Unix or Windows – as a daemon/service and communicates with Isilon clusters, creates NFS/SMB connections to all nodes and presents them to ISP servers as a single, very fast file system.
dsmISI automatically detects whenever Isilon nodes fail or when nodes are removed from or added to a cluster. Failovers are executed transparently for ISP. Dynamic load balancing at runtime ensures that all nodes of a cluster are being utilized equally. In ISP+ environments dsmISI is setup on the vsnap server and dsmISI additionally stripes the vsnap pool data across the Isilon nodes.
