Mail2World today announced its partnership with EMC2, a market leader in next-generation IT storage and data platform solutions. Specifically, Mail2World has chosen the EMC® Isilon® scale-out NAS solution and the EMC Isilon OneFS Operating System to boost its existing storage infrastructure in anticipation of data growth and demand. 


With increased demands on data storage from clients and new product solutions on the horizon, Mail2World wanted to combine its existing storage infrastructure with an equally robust data storage solution to increase performance, maintain high availability and meet its increasing data growth requirements.   After a comprehensive review of other cloud computing and data storage providers, Mail2World chose EMC for its flexibility and ease of management.


EMC Isilon’s OneFS delivers a powerful yet simple solution for organizations to manage large volumes of data.  The solution is easy to manage, which drives down cost of ownership while providing high performance, scalability and security.  EMC Isilon’s OneFS is ideal for a cloud provider with Petabytes of storage requirements, billions of files, and a need for high performance, scalability, and security. The result of this partnership is a high performance, secure data infrastructure which supports always-on connectivity for users worldwide.


EMC Isilon’s simplicity and cost-effective design will enable Mail2World to reduce internal costs and pass cost savings and additional storage to its customers. “With demand constantly growing from our customers, we require technology partners that can provide agility and performance efficiencies,” explains Youssef Abed, Mail2World COO and Executive Vice President of Mail2World. “With our industry-leading technology and cost-effective pricing structure, this partnership will help us stay competitive with our cloud offerings and leverage our partners to exceed our customers’ requirements.”


“With EMC Isilon, Mail2World can deploy over 20 petabytes of capacity per cluster using the world’s fastest NAS platform, with a performance speed of 1.6 million SPECsfs2008 Common Internet File System (CIFS) operations per second due to the OneFS File System,” said Julian Tang, Director of IT Infrastructure.  “We’ve increased performance capacity by 60%-70%, reduced operational costs by 60%, and we saw our write latency spikes disappear and our read latency improve by 30%.”


With EMC as its email cloud solutions partner, Mail2World’s IT infrastructure remains poised for future growth with its storage systems and performance capability.   “We weren’t just looking for data storage,” explains Kamil Asfour, Director of Technology Operations.  “We were looking for a scalable data solution that could be called upon quickly to meet new customer needs. We extensively evaluated several providers, and due to our own modular technology infrastructure, selected EMC for its agility, flexibility, and ease of management.”
