Isilon has announced that iLOOKABOUT has deployed Isilon scale-out storage to power its geospatial information services. Using the Isilon X-Series, featuring the OneFS operating system, iLOOKABOUT has consolidated its image ingest, processing and archiving onto a single, shared storage resource, simplifying data management to reduce costs and improve operational efficiency.

With Isilon scale-out storage, iLOOKABOUT can linearly and independently scale performance and capacity in-line with application requirements, reducing capital expenses, while enabling the geospatial leader to grow its storage on-demand as business needs change.

"Our business success depends on our ability to maximize the value of our geospatial information and with traditional SAN or NAS, that's simply impossible," said Jeff Young, CEO, iLOOKABOUT. "Isilon gives us what we need, from high performance and on-demand scalability, to easy deployment and near-effortless management, meaning we can focus on our business and not on storage challenges."

iLOOKABOUT produces and delivers geo-coded images to businesses and governments that rely on visual data for their operations. Working with Isilon channel partner JumpPoint, iLOOKABOUT deployed Isilon scale-out storage to consolidate its massive repository of geospatial imagery and related applications, providing a single file system and point of management for its core imaging processes.

With Isilon's unique clustered architecture, iLOOKABOUT can scale capacity and performance on-demand as its needs change, taking advantage of Isilon's multi-path I/O and easy capacity expansion to accelerate productivity, while minimizing costs.

"Maximizing the value of large files and growing data stores is a core concern for enterprise business across a wide range of industries," said Sam Grocott, vice president of marketing, Isilon.

"However, the limited scalability and complex management of traditional SAN and NAS make doing so difficult. iLOOKABOUT's use of Isilon to minimize costs and improve business efficiency is further proof that Isilon's scale-out storage offers a better, simpler way to make the most of business-critical information."

iLOOKABOUT is a visual data intelligence company serving commercial enterprise in the real estate, insurance, municipal, utility, assessment and appraisal sectors in North America and Europe. iLOOKABOUT is a pioneer in visual data intelligence with its StreetScape and Virtual Tour products.

StreetScape is a visual data intelligence product for the geo-spatial market, providing panoramic, comprehensive, street level perspective visual data, geo-coded with latitude and longitude coordinates for accuracy and supported by patented software processes and proprietary security and storage systems.
