New “Hacker How-To” series on EMC Isilon social media

If you follow EMC Isilon on Twitter (@EMCIsilon), you probably noticed our new Hacker How-To series. This six-week series highlighted videos, whitepapers, and blog posts on the following topics:

  • Disaster Recovery OneFS modules: SyncIQ, SnapshotIQ, and SmartLock
  • Site Prep and Planning: Cable management, node selection, and cluster installation
  • Multiprotocol support in OneFS
  • Role-based access control in OneFS 7.1
  • InsightIQ overview and installation

The series was popular, so we’re planning a new series in March! We want to know which topics you’d like to see next. We also want to know how you’d like to receive this information.

Here are two questions to help us make the next Hacker How-To most useful to you.
