Bloomberg reported that storage vendor Isilon is seeking bidders for a possible sale.

According to the Bloomberg report Isilon, whose media and entertainment customers include 3ality Digital, NBC Sports, Canadian Television and the Moving Picture Company, is seeking to emulate the bidding war that surrounded storage vendor 3Par.

Although Isilon operates in a wide variety of vertical markets such as energy, finance, government and education, there is good awareness of the company in the broadcast industry.  For example, in a ranking of “near-line / off-line / archival storage” systems published as part of the 2010 Big Broadcast Survey, 29% of respondents said that the company’s are either “best” or “better than most” competitors.
