EMC to Acquire Isilon for $2.25 Billion to Gain Video Storage

I am not sure if Isilon products are FPGA based. Its competitor BlueArc network attached storage heavily rely on FPGA. "The FPGA's provide hardware acceleration of processing which typically occurs in software running on general purpose CPU's on competing products. As a result, BlueArc is able to provide high performance for a single system or node. Another feature of BlueArc's products is their ability to be clustered together into groups of up to 8 nodes", according to BlueArc wiki. FPGA greatly helps ideas of Storage-on-Chip.
