Overall Satisfaction with IBM FlashSystem

IBM FlashSystem is being used for verification testing and competitive analysis so we can help our partners/ customers make the right decision for their business
  • It has sufficient availability
  • It has a comprehensive service/ support
  • It offers clients a solution from an established vendor they feel they can trust
  • It has a well-known brand
  • Price and cost are major concerns and can be significantly improved
  • Its brand in developing countries/ lesser know parts of the world isn’t as strong as others
  • Improved openness and compatibility with other platforms is always a major plus
  • Smaller return on ROI vs competitors
  • Sustainable, long-standing equipment that lasts for years w/ out a lot of additional maintenance/ support post-deployment
  • IT teams have confidence in FlashSystem deployments given their prior positive experiences
IBM’s solutions are compatible and comparable with solutions from the vendors listed and work well together, creating an improved hyper-converged solution
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), Ubuntu OpenStack, Cumulus
It’s well-suite in legacy environments where older applications are being run and it is connected to other IBM equipment.
Less suited in environments running more up to date cloud applications where brown-field equipment is dominant
