IBM FlashSystem 5000

IBM FlashSystem 5000 is well suited for most environments that requires a high performance storage system. Since the price of flash has decreased significantly over the past years, it can also be used to replace legacy disk based storage systems as part of a company's storage upgrade or refresh plan. If you have a tight budget, then the FlashSystem 5000 can be configured as a hybrid solution to decrease costs a bit. You can then make use of the Easy-Tier functionality to ensure that the data is automatically kept or moved the right type of storage to maintain application performance.

IBM FlashSystem 5000

  • It provides a very good balance of price and benefits.
  • Easy migration from older systems using virtualization.
  • IBM FlashSystem 5000 allows the customer to balance performance vs capacity (Data Reduction Pools in the FS5030 have a performance impact due to not having hardware accelerators).

IBM FlashSystem 5000

  • They can include Amazon S3 file system protocol in the upcoming releases.
  • By creating a customized patch for a client, they don't really solve the issue for everyone. If multiple users have the same bug, IBM should upload the patch on the official website so that we can download it.
  • They can include the functionality to stretch a cluster natively without using any additional boxes.

IBM FlashSystem 5000

Having both the V5K and V7K, I can't see purchasing another V7K array. The V5000 has held it's own against the V7000, even when enabling features like deduplication that we had to leave off of the V7K for a variety of reasons. It's the same software, and essentially the same hardware, for a lot less money.

IBM FlashSystem 5000

  • Flash systems generally use less power and cooling than traditionally disk based storage saving on power and cooling costs
  • The system has a smaller footprint and thus require less rack space in the Data Centre.
  • The system has compression features to extend the storage capacity at no additional costs
