IBM FlashSystem 7200

It should be noted that although this is marketed as a mid-range storage system, it has many advantages which includes the use of NVMe (flashcore) drives, IBM Spectrum Virtualize and AI capabilities. The advantages of a storage designed with end-to-end NVMe, i.e. IBM FlashCore, enables the system to provide ultra-low latency performance which is necessary for certain mission critical systems i.e ERP. Another cool feature is IBM Storage Insights, which allows the system to provide predictive analytics for storage optimization as well as simplifies management and support of the unit.

Cons

IBM FlashSystem 7200

  • IBM has been a leader in data management for a long time and Flashsystem doesn't give much to its competitors to challenge it. they're very robust
  • though the UI to work with takes some time to get used to for DataBase Admins

The results we have obtained are much better than expected, the amount of IOPS are good but the latency is very good, although it is not the best for databases and sequential writing, the team meets and exceeds expectations for secondary storage. , I am convinced that for small and medium-sized organizations it can be a great alternative considering the cost per TB, the ease of implementation, the ease of use and the support.

Alternatives Considered

IBM FlashSystem 7200

We ended up shifting from the IBM Storwize v7000 platform to the NetApp AFF platform and have been extremely pleased by the performance, cost, and efficiency thus far. The systems certainly have similarities but the NetApp AFF has met all of our expectations thus far and making changes to the storage being presented (i.e. growing a volume) is much more straightforward on our AFF system.

Return on Investment

IBM FlashSystem 7200

  • When data is managed, the ROI is there, as the manual error is nullified.
  • Scalable-can be expanded in the future hence future proof.
  • Security is also there.
  • All of the above are making this future proof with ROI in the long run.
