Customer is developing a digital resiliency strategy where they are building a 2nd data center. This is increasing their Isilon investment by 2x and they currently have 5 clusters. They’re challenged with qualified personnel on site, they are a non-federal account but a dark site none the less so access is VERY difficult. They have a very demanding application that stretches Isilon to its limits ( 1MM files/folder is best practice, they have multiple with over 20MM) and we need to provide an on-site resource that can help calm the customer, remediate issues and install best practices. This resident will help decrease SRs, increase customer confidence in our products and generate more revenue for the company. They are also shifting underused Isilon nodes over for Splunk cold buckets. Their current ingest rate is 2TB/day and they target 20TB/day in the future. Large alternate opportunity for Isilon but again they need to feel supported and confident. ?Strong Isilon storage mgmt. skills
