IN IBM-compatible scenarios, the IBM Flash System 7200 offers high performance and adds storage optimizations along with compression features. The number of interfaces, especially Fiber Channel, allows us to implement a large number of disk arms, which leads to higher platform performance. I still can't find any scenarios when the team has problems.

IBM Flash System [7200] is well suited in large organizations which has the need to replicate and to store a large amount of data with cloud capabilities, and it is less suited on an on premise organization where hardware and software is manually maintained and there is little or less use of automating processes[.]

As a user with my personal experience, I feel that IBM FlashSystem 7200 is well suited for organizations that have medium to high workloads. Compression and deduplication are some important features that are needed here. The performance of IBM FlashSystem 7200 is also great and that is a reason for recommending it to businesses. However, businesses that are at the entry level can avoid this and search for better alternatives mainly because of the high cost.

This is an extremely recommended tool for storage and low latency as it is a high-performance tool and it has the ability to streamline our business. It is good for all those who want to deliver the data of clients in a quick and efficient manner. But its reports are something I least like about it because I anticipated reports to be more elaborative rather than mere superficial reports.

This can grow the hybrid cloud with full flexibility. So anyone can start and scale the demands of the business. Definitely, it's easy to scale. You can easily optimize the performance disk. The platform offers professional capabilities and these can be deployed across the hybrid cloud. According to my personal experience, it's best from every side.

It (IBM FlashSystem 7200) is suitable for big corporations who have to process and modify a lot of data. Its cost [may be] too high and I wouldn't recommend it for smaller businesses as it can cause a significant dent in their finances. I think it is too powerful for small businesses and at that stage latency difference for cheaper alternatives won't matter much.

It is well suited as a reliable and fast workhorse. It has a high level of integrated encryption and works well with the functionality straight out the box so well suited when you need something that works and works well quite quickly.

In scenarios supported by IBM, the system presents great performance capacity and together with the compression functionalities, it adds storage optimization. The number of interfaces, especially the Fiber Channel, allow us to implement a large number of disk arms, which results in higher platform performance. So far I cannot find scenarios where the equipment has problems.

This storage is best suited for medium to high workloads for full allocated volumes. Compression and dedupe features will help only if there are low sets of transactions. Performance is highly affected when using global mirror if there is a high number of IOPS.

IBM FlashSystem 7200 is well suited for medium to large-sized enterprises which do not want to compromise on performance and quality for their critical applications and services. The cost is a bit on the higher side but it compensates for the performance and support which is provided by IBM.

Well in big organizations where big data movements are quite important it is most suitable because it moves it very seamlessly which makes it more favourable. However it not recommended for smaller organization as it would be quite tricky when it comes to smaller data sets and could be bit expensive given the size of data.

The FlashSystem is incredibly well suited for so many different storage applications. Whether they be all-flash or hybrid-flash, this thing performs with incredible performance. I have to say that the ultra-low latency technology of the Flashcore is something that anyone can appreciate. Being able to add in this mid-range storage solution is the easiest way to keep hybrid storage options running quickly and securely.

I would recommend the Storwize v7000 for customers / colleagues that are looking for a system that serves as a repository of some kind or even as a system that will serve data to low impact / low to mid utilization environments. It meshed very well to our VMware environment and was very simple to install and setup.

The most suitable scenario for IBM FlashSystem 7200 is situations where data is processed and flowed at high speed. Here, CRM DB, ERP DB are created for digital transformation processes. In further use, you can work on large data with OLAP cubes. You can even integrate your e-commerce system with the V7200 physically located in your location.

Consolidating and managing storage arrays as one pool. Performance is good and second to none. IBM FlashSystem enables seamless data mobility across your on-premises cloud into hybrid cloud storage. Upgrading to bigger drives was a tedious process. Managing more number of firmware updates released per year can be reduced so that it eases the admins day to day job.

The storage is extremely fast and delivers excellent performance within our apps. The support is top notch which is great for getting implemented all the way throughout the process. Have found it is also incredibly reliable and stable to go along with the speed. The only scenario not getting it is having too small of a budget to make this a reality.

IBM FlashSystem 7200 is well suited for storage and low latency data delivery workloads. Anything outside that which requires additional processing does not handle very well, which makes sense since it is designed for a single task. Just like its brother, IBM FlashSystem 5000, it is helpful in scenarios where the customer needs their data quickly and efficiently.

These are great storage devices that have great scale-out. They support high-performance real-time transaction processing systems. Also, they support complex query calculations across large data sets. I think any system that has SLAs requiring quick response times could benefit from this type of storage solution. Beats traditional SAN hands down. Improves performance of some transactions by two orders of magnitude over our previous traditional SAN storage array.

IBM FlashSystem 7200 is well suited for large to mid-sized enterprises for storage solutions. But it may not be suitable for the small companies, as the cost will be more and they may not prefer as the multi clouds may not be used. Small companies may not have large data storage requirements and management.

Scenarios where it is well suited for
  1. enterprise level all flash storage
  2. global access of data over cloud
  3. multiple models to store data though preferred one is hybrid cloud
Scenarios where it is less suited
  1. entry level enterprise mainly because of costs
