Announcing new IBM flash and software defined storage for transparent cloud tiering - Nov 2

IBM Storage flash and software defined computing solutions bring speed, agility and efficiency to on-premises and hybrid cloud data infrastructures. IBM Storage is making exciting enhancements to our ability to deliver hybrid cloud storage for all clients' data and storage needs. We are announcing new solutions for Transparent Cloud Tiering using IBM Spectrum Virtualize, IBM Storwize, IBM FlashSystem V9000, VersaStack models and IBM DS8000.

  • Improve efficiency and agility by extending existing storage—almost 400 systems from IBM and others—with new hybrid cloud capability in systems built with IBM Spectrum Virtualize
  • Transform economics by converting CAPEX to OPEX using cloud storage to complement or replace on-premises storage
  • Accelerate business innovation with comprehensive IBM solutions offering hybrid cloud capability for all data and storage

IBM Storage will also support rapidly growing cognitive workloads with faster and denser flash solutions. Your clients will be able to:

  • Reduce space requirements for growing workloads  up to 66% with new high density flash enclosures in DS8880, Storwize family, FlashSystem V9000, VersaStack and SVC
  • Improve performance for mission-critical workloads up to 2x with new high performance DS8880 flash
  • Support growing flash workloads with up to 8x larger all-flash Storwize systems: up to 32PB of flash storage in only four racks

IBM Storage is also announcing all flash IBM DeepFlash Enterprise Storage Server. We are evolving the current ESS offering with new Dense Flash and Spectrum RAID Software in order to provide clients a new, all-flash based, network attached solution with vastly higher performance in a far smaller footprint. Clients will benefit from All-Flash for Scale-Out File and Object workloads. This offering integrates the industry proven IBM Spectrum Scale parallel file system with a new class of high density all-flash storage.
