Overall Satisfaction with IBM FlashSystem

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.
  • High performance
  • Low latency
  • Easy to present storage
  • Data storage
  • Easier to use encryption.
  • Increased throughput
  • Increased performance
  • Better customer experience
  • Less data center space
  • Reduced power consumption
We leveraged our enterprise relationship with IBM in order to achieve favorable pricing and support plans for the FlashSystem 7200. Pure Storage would be a new partner for us and an unknown. We wanted to do something quickly with a known partner so IBM FlashSystem 7200 just became the default choice for us.
These are great storage devices that have great scale-out. They support high-performance real-time transaction processing systems. Also, they support complex query calculations across large data sets. I think any system that has SLAs requiring quick response times could benefit from this type of storage solution. Beats traditional SAN hands down. Improves performance of some transactions by two orders of magnitude over our previous traditional SAN storage array.
