Personally, I think it is intended for medium to large organizations because it is very fast in transfer, but the data storage requirements are also higher in these organizations and the planned budget is sometimes not enough but in my organization, this is the matrix. This is very appropriate.

IBM Flash System 7200 has a greater efficiency for organizations with a midsized workloads because it has a better business acceleration ,it unlocks the value of data execution with end to end NVM-e powered IBM Flashcore technology and SCM support for even lower latency and it has a leveraged IT spectrum[.]

The organization of workload is amazing with this tool. With IBM FlashSystem 7200 I was able to move my database devices easily from the previous software solution that I was using in my firm. Altogether it is a great solution due to its great features.

Definitely, the IBM FlashSystem 7200 meets the data storage requirements of different organizations. Even organizations and companies with midsized workloads can use the platform with full confidence. Because this can accelerate the business execution. This can support your business from each and every side. Even organizations can virtualize the existing storage at no additional cost.

I would say it is more suitable with large size load and bigger corporations instead of medium-size businesses. If a medium size business uses this, it would be spending a lot of money on features and power; it can do well without and a lot on maintenance too. Therefore, I would say there are better and cheaper alternatives for midsized workloads.

It is excellent. It is a clear and intuitive system that IBM liaise well with in house IT departments to ensure that costs are saved and hardware is the best options within cost. It has some truly premium features, despite it being more of a product for restricted budgets, it certainly doesn’t feel a cheaper / budget product.

The team perfectly supports the requirements associated with the workloads of small and medium-sized companies, IBM's prices are perfectly adjusted to the budgets managed by these companies and also the relationship, cost - benefit, allows it to be an attractive alternative for budget scenarios. I think the storage system is perfectly suited to clients of this size.

It is effective in terms of storing data if using hardware and software compression. There is far more space than a regular internal disk array. You are able to divide workloads by using different pools and have better performance when using compression.

Well personally I think it is designed for the midsized and bigger organizations because it is very fast when it comes to transferring however the data storage requirements are also higher in these organization and the budget provided for sometimes would not be enough but in my organization this array is quite suitable.

This is a fantastic option for midsized applications who are working with constrained IT budgets. Using the IBM Storage Insights along with the FlashSystem 7200 provides predictive analytics that allows us to optimize storage and streamline our support offerings. end to end NVMe also lets us provide super-low latency to really speed things up.

The Storwize v7000 does fit the bill for midsize application workloads pretty well, but the efficiency of the system did not live up to expectations for our environment. The performance itself of the system was great and we were very pleased with the IOPS and latency statistics for our workloads.

First of all, the IBM FlashSystem 7200 product has a much better infrastructure than it actually looks. For this reason, it can be used with medium-sized application workloads very easily and according to our scenarios, it does not create any bottleneck even in medium-high scenarios. For this reason, the place of this product among flash storage products should be evaluated according to the IOPS value results, not according to the series. I definitely recommend it.

IBM FlashSystem as per my observation is suitable for midsized application as it consolidate and manage storage arrays as one pool which further reduces cost. Hence saving more IT budgets for the midsized organization. It gives better performance, data protection, resiliency and availability across your hybrid cloud whatever be the size of workloads ranging from midsized to large workloads. Hence giving better performance to those midsized applications.

We believe it is perfectly effective. As mentioned earlier this beast can work very fast, can scale to nearly whatever you may need, and comes with reliability that almost haven't seen before. Software releases fix anything that you may currently be concerned with so therefore making any problems had, quickly and efficiently resolved.

As a small company with a broad reach, we did not require too much power but we needed something that could fit our requirements. IBM FlashSystem 7200 was able to fit the bill, and it worked fine for our use cases. It is pretty effective with midsized workloads, but we never tested it on anything further (since we load balanced between the FlashSystem 5000 as well).

Our application is from a medium-sized group within the enterprise and easily fits into our budget. It has improved performance, reduced costs from our previous storage and services our nearly 3.5M customers. Some transaction performance has increased 100 fold. Some even more. Many transactions now appear to be instantaneous.

IBM FlashSystem 7200 definitely helps the mid-level companies that are having smaller data management compared to big enterprises having offices and clients worldwide. 7200 manages the data very well. There are other systems available but IBM is a trusted name and companies have good faith in their systems and software. When data is Managed efficiently the mid-sized companies benefits as human error is almost nil.

The midsized workloads work as fast as any smaller size data loads would work. IBM FlashSystem's cloud technology makes it work in a way that devices are connected all the time and make the data available faster and in an eco-friendly way too by consuming less energy. The IT budget is always a constrain given now we're trying to show margins by aggressively save costs and thus the low power operation mode of this technology has been of great value add.
