IBM FlashSystem 7200 is the best solution for enterprise flash array storage, as it really solves the issue of multi-form storage that we did not give much of our attention to initially. IBM FlashSystem 7200 has so many storage options, which are of great benefit and importance for me and my business on so many levels. The workloads of IBM FlashSystem 7200 are very high performing which is great.

My Company is using IBM FlashSystem 7200 to move the data perfectly between the tiers and we really like the excellent performance of this platform. Now we have successfully unlocked the data value and now we can accelerate the business execution with end-to-end IBM FlashCore technology. We never found any critical or complicated issues.

It is primarily used by our department for keeping records of our customers and consumers of our service. It has addressed the business problem of fast retrieval of data and transfer of large data. It is mainly used for this purpose since we have to change and modify invoicing and business quite frequently, and it has sufficient features for that.

Used across the entire business where we have a SAP ECC production environment running on devices connected to IBM Power Systems. Storage devices are exceptionally fast using NVMe Flash disks/arrays and are therefore achieving greater compression ratios by using on-board hardware compression accelerators. Even out read/write operations are faster than before which generally spends up a whole host of business functions.

It is used only in one of our departments. It has solved many performance issues with our infrastructure after the replacement of our old array. It has many deduplication and compression features which helped us to save more cost with respect to space usage compared to other storage technologies. Performance and support are also good.

The IBM FlashSystem 7200 or V7000 is a solution to the issue of multi-form storage that we didn't know we needed. This storage option provides so many different advantages over others in the arena including flexibility, optimization, always-on performance, and incredible reliability. The 7200 is one of those things where you can't appreciate how amazing something truly is until you experience it for yourself. What's not to like about this?

Our company purchased the Storwize v7000 in order to present storage to a development VMware environment. The workloads included very high performing (CPU / RAM / IOPS) virtual machines. The storage itself performed well, but we noticed that the efficiency was not as good as we were told it would be. Other than that fact, we were overall quite happy with the product. We still use it today but it has since been repurposed and replaced with a higher performing storage system from a different vendor. The Storwize v7000 now serves as a repository for backup and archive data while also serving as storage for a handful of shares for our development team. No issues have been reported from the team as far a performance and availability goes. Th storage admin team did mention on multiple occasions that making changes to any of the storage was a bit tricky and not intuitive.

IBM FlashSystem 7200 was used to simplify the most complex storage tasks of hybrid clouds. It was used by one of the departments for one of implementing hybrid cloud storage for one of their end customers. For us, simplifying those complexities of hybrid cloud storage was one of the primary business problems that was addressed by using IBM FlashSystem 7200.

We are currently using IBM Storwize v7000 and it has been 10 years since first running it in my organization. It is being used across the whole organization and used to support applications across multiple branches. Yes, several times had experienced disk-related problems, but until now it can still operate smoothly and fast. The technical support provided is also very good, very responsive to solve existing problems

Great performance of our data. Used across the organization and specifically helps the most with apps. Addresses several problems with one powerful solution which is great. IBM sales and support teams are really top notch and help us get into an enterprise level product like this with higher end capabilities.

Our organization is using IBM FlashSystem 7200 as a rapid data delivery server. Just like the FlashSystem 5000 (which was also used by our organization), it assists with issues such as CDN speed and registrar data which we rely on as a SaaS company. It addresses many problems regarding data.

We use this for a high-performance record-keeping system that is highly transactional. Queries need to be resolved in milliseconds and in many cases require computations involving complex calculations and large data sets. We were able to move our database devices over to the FlashSystem 7200 storage which greatly improved the performance over traditional SAN storage. This was by far our best and easiest performance gain. We are using this within our department.

IBM FlashSystem 7200 uses has simplified our hybrid storage business case by making versions of our courses dynamically available to our users across various parts of the globe. We are trying to publish our STEM learning courses available for review by our editors and then available for learning for our students across DACH, APAC, NA and LATAM regions and through FlashSystem's hybrid cloud storage we are able to do so in a cost effective and easy manner.
