PowerScale Training and Certification Options

Dell Technologies has launched a new hardware platform for Isilon, the F200 and F600. Powered by the One FS 9.0 Operating System,  the platform is optimized to run on PowerEdge-based x86 servers and offers simplicity at any scale, handles any data, anywhere, and searches within your customers’ data to help unlock its potential.

This new Isilon platform is being rebranded as PowerScale, with the changes happening over time. In the meantime, you will continue to see Isilon and PowerScale used interchangeably, including within all courses and associated lab activities.

We offer expert instruction and certification programs for PowerScale, helping customers and partners simplify and scale unstructured data and deliver excellent performance results to keep pace with the rapid growth of data many organizations are experiencing today.
