New and refurbished FlashCore Modules available from stock
Whereas previous generation storage controllers used software-based compression (requiring forethought and management to avoid compromising performance) the FlashCore Modules utilize hardware Compression within the Modules in order to maximize useable capacity, with no performance overhead.
Compression is performed as the first step in the inbound data path and decompression is the last step in the outbound data path. This minimizes the amount of data written to the FCM which in turn helps extend their longevity.
What makes FlashCore technology unique?
- Hardware-Accelerated Architecture – Deliver extreme performance, low latency, greater density, unlimited scalability, and mission-critical reliability by using an IBM-designed, purpose-engineered NVMe flash storage module.
- Compression with no performance impact – Up to 3:1 inline hardware-accelerated compression and encryption in every FlashCore Module that has zero impact on performance across the full range of workloads. Data reduction occurs as fast as data can be written to the modules.
- Encryption with no performance impact – Supports FIPS140-3 Level 2 encryption with IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager centralized key management and full hot-swap capabilities without performance impact.
IBM FlashCore Modules are supported in the Midrange and Enterprise IBM Flash Systems.
