Isilon Systems announced that MySpace has made an initial deployment of 20TB of Isilon IQ
clustered storage to meet the substantial media consumption demands of
its more than 40 million members. With explosive growth in its number
of users and their time spent on the site, MySpace has rocketed to the third ranked site in terms of page views in
October 2005, according to comScore Media Metrix. In order to
accommodate the 24x7 user consumption of its wide ranging catalog of
media content and user profiles, MySpace selected Isilon IQ clustered
storage to provide the extreme levels of scalability and performance
needed to fuel its growth while dramatically reducing IT administration
"Our media delivery and storage needs are tripling every year and
this presented a challenge for our traditional storage systems," said
Aber Whitcomb, CTO of MySpace. "Isilon IQ is a critical part of our
infrastructure -- the performance, scalability and cost savings we
realize with Isilon IQ will help fuel the next wave of our development."
MySpace switched to Isilon IQ clustered storage to support both
music label and user-generated streaming and downloadable media
programming. Originally using legacy SATA arrays, MySpace quickly found
that their traditional storage systems could not accommodate the
exponential growth of their data storage. Using Isilon IQ clustered
storage, MySpace was able to unify its entire catalog of media
programming into one single file system, providing unmatched
flexibility to seamlessly scale capacity to meet rapid growth while
recognizing dramatic cost savings and, critically, realizing true
operational leverage of its IT staff.
