Flash storage is storage method based on flash memory. Flash memory offers reduced energy consumption, requires lesser space than physical hard drives and provides superior performance. IBM Flash storage solutions provide the micro-latency, scalable performance and operational efficiency today's organizations require to unlock insights from massive volumes of data. IBM FlashSystem&trade; storage solutions allow you to do more with less so you can outsmart&mdash;not outspend&mdash;your competitors.
IBM FlashSystem family is changing enterprise storage by giving you time to value, time to insight and time to market. Supported by Flashcore Technology, IBM FlashSystem gives you four times the capacity in less rack space, and can scale to 2 petabytes of flash capacity.

If there’s one thing we know about IBM, it’s that the company has demonstrated time and again its ability to solve really, really big IT problems. Many other vendors make assertions that look great in a PowerPoint presentation, but can all those vendors genuinely support your operation in Tanzania, Tupelo, or Tyneside if it encounters a cloud connectivity glitch or otherwise needs help? Spectrum Scale offers a proven, scalable private cloud data management system with the ability to use and integrate public clouds, too. IBM can provide “multi-dimensional elasticity,” tying together any sort of data, anywhere in the environment or from places outside of the direct environment, and anywhere on the globe. When it is accelerated with IBM’s FlashSystem, greater value can be derived from analytics applications, spanning the latent knowledge and insights within any organization’s “corporate data cloud.”
FlashSystem offers dynamic performance and efficiency FLASHSYSTEM IS AN ALL-FLASH STORAGE ARRAY THAT PROVIDES THE HIGHEST PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY, AND OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY AT LOWER COST THAN ANY EQUIVALENT ENTERPRISE STORAGE SOLUTION.
Top 9 Takeaways From IBM FlashSystems
Grid storage has many characteristics that make it an ideal enterprise, cloud and service provider storage architecture. From a technical perspective, the inherent ease of configuration, scale-out performance and autonomic tuning of grid storage can’t be beat by classic dual-controller architectures. Such advantages translate into measurable customer benefits like linear performance scalability and worry-free data storage. Equally important, with the software-defined Spectrum Accelerate, XIV disk-only and hybrid (disk-flash), and the IBM FlashSystem A9000/IBM FlashSystem A9000R all-flash storage systems, IBM has implemented the most comprehensive range of grid storage technology alternatives available on the market today. Indeed, the fact that IBM has added the world-class FlashSystem technology to their grid storage offerings is testament to the enduring virtues of this storage architecture. In the end, enterprise data center and cloud/service provider customers can’t go wrong with one of IBM’s grid storage solutions.
Deeper insights from data assets will require better information technology (IT). As you modernize your IT infrastructure to enable innovation rather than limit it, you’ll need a data storage system that can keep pace with multi-Gigahertz processors and multi-dimensional analytical software. IBM® FlashSystem® is engineered from the chip to the chassis to meet these demands. It provides not only the high performance and ultra-low latency that flash storage is known for, but also high reliability and lower IT cost. This combination makes IBM FlashSystem extremely attractive for businesses determined to make more, spend less and move faster.
Simplicity and reliability are more than valuable features in a storage system—they’re business-critical needs. IBM FlashSystem® all-flash storage arrays make fast storage simple with consistency, efficiency, and reliability to solve complex enterprise data storage challenges. Data storage challenges can be complex.
The all-flash array market may have experienced its initial growth due to the technology’s impressive performance characteristics, but its long-term growth is likely to accelerate due to dramatic improvements in all-flash arrays’ economic value. Not only are purchase prices of all-flash solutions declining rapidly—a decline that seems certain to continue, if not accelerate, as production volumes soar—but all-flash arrays deliver a unique combination of improved business benefits and lower operating expenses. This eye-opening convergence of financial benefits is a big factor driving demand for all-flash arrays, particularly in performance-intensive applications such as big data, VDI, OLTP, and hybrid cloud computing
IBM FlashSystem® V9000 is a comprehensive all-flash enterprise storage solution. FlashSystem V9000 delivers the full capabilities of IBM FlashCore™ technology plus a rich set of storage virtualization features. FlashSystem V9000 delivers industry-leading value to enterprises along three dimensions: Scalable Performance, Enduring Economics, and Agile Integration.
Without a crystal ball or time machine, predicting the future is usually an uncertain exercise at best. Ask nearly any expert to describe the future of IT these days, however, and their surprisingly confident and consistent answer will almost certainly revolve around the same five technology trends: cloud computing, analytics, mobile applications, social media, and data security. It’s a consensus that’s hard to dispute. Individually, cloud computing, analytics, mobility, and social media are already today’s most potent engines of IT innovation, and when accompanied by robust security they’re collectively helping companies spot trends and seize opportunities with unprecedented speed.
