  • I use this for record-keeping, which is a highly transactional process and I don’t feel that there was a better option available than IBM FlashSystem 7200.
  • We have never really faced any major issues as far as performance is concerned with IBM FlashSystem 7200.
  • The software also has a low latency rate, which is amazing because it means that the network is optimized to process at a relatively high volume.
  • I personally feel that IBM FlashSystem 7200 should really improve their online compression because it requires further attention to become a better platform.
  • IBM FlashSystem 7200 should also have a deduplication feature, which will also be beneficial.

  • It allows replication and DRP compression.
  • Its interface is quite simple with so many enormous features.
  • Its subscription rate is unfair and is highly expensive.

  • It is quite scalable and usually scaling up is no problem. This is especially useful when one has limited idea about how long or big the project is going to be.
  • Its automation has helped us in managing data better.
  • It is quite powerful and usually transfers data very fast with low latency.
  • Lasts long and doesn't behave unexpectedly.
  • It is quite expensive. Cost of maintenance can add up, so beware of that.

  • Excellent support structure from IBM
  • Integration of the system with a host of midrange devices is super easy
  • GUI is intuitive and easy to navigate between models.
  • Some of the connective functionality with the IBM storage insights software is lacking.
  • IBM need to focus more specifically on their existing issues, rather than always seem to be pushing the bigger and newer versions.
