IBM Storwize V7000 is a simple box that can help you deliver SAN block storage to your servers. It is mainly used in virtualized environments. It has the capability of providing replication to a secondary site, by doing async or sync replicas of your data. Because it supports different disk technologies under one pool, you can reduce overall costs, maintaining fare performance.
  • Easy to use.
  • Great GUI.
  • Easy Tier capability.
  • Only block storage box.
  • Many incidents over a few years.
  • If easy tier not planned well, the performance might be impacted.
Some of the scenarios where IBM Storwize V7000 is well suited are:
  • Virtualized environments
  • Disaster recovery sites
  • All bock storage scenarios
  • Low rack footprint


Some of the scenarios where IBM Storwize V7000 is less appropriate are:
  • One solution for both file access and block access
  • High-performance scenarios
  • A hybrid solution to scale to cloud

The generation 2 version has high compression capacity, and it has dedicated PCI just to address the compression. Also, the external virtualization feature protects the customer's previous investment in storage equipment.
  • Cluster capacity of 4 controllers with up to 128 GB Cache each
  • Storage synchronous and asynchronous replication.
  • Streched cluster
  • As it uses pool of Mdisks (array) by type of disk, the CPU cores are shared between pools
  • On the previous generation (gen1) all compression was done by processor so performance suffered
V7000 navigates between midrange and a high end storage, so it can be used as a high end storage as it grows up to 128 GB cache on each controller, and it id also is recognized on V7000F as a flash storage.
