Understanding IBM FlashSystem

IBM FlashSystem is a family of state-of-the-art, all-flash storage solutions designed to deliver superior performance, scalability, and reliability. By harnessing the power of flash memory technology, IBM FlashSystem offers the agility and responsiveness needed for data-intensive workloads. It incorporates innovative features like inline data compression, deduplication, and data tiering to optimize storage efficiency and reduce costs, making it an ideal choice for organizations that need to get the most out of their storage investment.

Designed to deliver industry-leading performance and cost efficiency, FlashSystem all-flash and hybrid flash arrays simplify hybrid cloud storage and shorten cyberattack recovery time.

The Benefits of IBM FlashSystem Evaluation and Migration Offer

Performance: Migrating to IBM FlashSystem promises a significant performance boost compared to previous-generation storage systems, including other SSD-based storage. The ultra-low latency and high input/output operations per second (IOPS) of FlashSystem accelerate critical applications, ensuring faster data processing and improved productivity across the organization.

Scalability and Flexibility: As your data requirements continue to grow, IBM FlashSystem offers the scalability you need. Its modular architecture allows you to expand storage capacity seamlessly without compromising performance or experiencing downtime. This ensures that your storage infrastructure can scale with your evolving business needs.

Cost Optimisation: IBM FlashSystem helps you optimise costs by reducing your physical storage footprint and energy consumption. Its data reduction techniques, such as compression and deduplication, maximize storage efficiency and minimize the need for additional hardware. This results in significant cost savings by reducing operational expenses and eliminating the need for frequent storage expansions.

Reliability: Protecting your valuable data is of utmost importance. IBM FlashSystem offers advanced data management features, including data redundancy and sophisticated RAID technologies, ensuring data availability and reliability.

Innovative virtualization and container technologies

IBM FlashSystem storage arrays come with IBM Spectrum Virtualize to complement server virtualization with technologies such as PowerVM, Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere, and the container technologies Kubernetes and Docker. Like virtualized servers, provisioning FlashSystem 5000 capacity is achieved with software and thin provisioning and is designed to be an almost entirely automated function. Without these technologies, provisioning servers could be slowed by the need to provision storage.

Containers on IBM FlashSystem enable applications to be packaged with everything needed to run identically in any environment. They offer the versatility of virtual machines but at a much smaller footprint and cost. As a result, containerization is a key enabling technology for flexibly delivering workloads to private and public cloud and DevOps.

Using the IBM storage container plug-in framework, FlashSystem arrays can enable any supported storage to be used as persistent storage in Docker and Kubernetes container environments, improving flexibility, simplifying deployment, and lowering costs while offering your organisation the confidence of deploying stateful containers using highly available storage with enterprise capabilities.

Advanced-Data protection within each storage array

IBM FlashSystem can help protect your company’s data and make it more resilient, whether in your data centre, containerised, or hybrid environments. FlashSystem offers increase cyber resiliency with the built-in Cyber Vault framework, which aims to shorten cyberattack recovery time from days to hours. Cyber Vault complements the in-built IBM FlashSystem Safeguarded Copy solution by regularly checking copies for evidence of data corruption caused by malware or ransomware.
