Overall Satisfaction with IBM FlashSystem 5000 (formerly Storwize V5000E)

I've been working with the IBM FlashSystem 5000 family and four different IBM partners in Egypt for the last 10 years. I am very interested in continue using IBM Storage systems and I install them onto many customers' computers. It's one of the best.
  • High availability
  • Flash copy services
  • Simple management
  • High performance
  • Fixability
  • Stability
  • Extend pool with a single disk
  • it improve small and medium customer performance
Very effective storage and it replaces many old storage systems on the customer sites. I have already replaced two customers' systems in Egypt and it is working very well and helps us to meet workload requirements.
These benefits help us to minimize storage cost and define which workload needs performance storage and which workload needs cold storage.
IBM FlashSystem 5000 helps us meet customer workload requirements. budgets, and space footprints for small sites. In addition, it improves our environmental performance and flash copy services making our backups more fixable
