IBM FlashSystem  is being used in our organization because of it's high throughput and big cache storage. Most of the organization's data is stored privately and securely with high capacity storages by IBM, 5000 being the behemoth of them all with 25TB usable storage most of the data can be stored locally and no-one can deny the 3-year warranty which is a cherry on the top.
- High storage capacity
- Huge cache size
- Unbeatable warranty support
- Warranty can be increased for peace of mind.
- Cost could be adjusted for SME use.
- Should be easily accessible.
In our organization most of the data is stored locally on IBM FlashStore 5000 which is cost effective and has a fantastic ROI for our organization which caters all our data storage needs with fast cache and huge local storage. Only issue is the accessibility which can be improved overtime.
For our workload it is perfect for storage as our requirements are catered in accordance to the storage of IBM FlashSystem . It has saved a lot of man hours because of fast cache which is available throughout and humongous storage options for SME application and data storage needs. Overall satisfied with the results.
