Overall Satisfaction with IBM FlashSystem 7200

IBM FlashSystem 7200 uses has simplified our hybrid storage business case by making versions of our courses dynamically available to our users across various parts of the globe. We are trying to publish our STEM learning courses available for review by our editors and then available for learning for our students across DACH, APAC, NA and LATAM regions and through FlashSystem's hybrid cloud storage we are able to do so in a cost effective and easy manner.
  • easy and fast integration with global CDNs
  • enterprise level advanced all-flash storage
  • Seamless data transactions to and from the cloud anywhere anytime
  • zero to minimal downtimes
  • low power mode operation
  • IBM has been a leader in data management for a long time and Flashsystem doesn't give much to its competitors to challenge it. they're very robust
  • though the UI to work with takes some time to get used to for DataBase Admins
  • cost effective and efficient management of our data
  • saving on power bills
  • faster go to market by making data available in multi geographies easily with integrity
The midsized workloads work as fast as any smaller size data loads would work. IBM FlashSystem's cloud technology makes it work in a way that devices are connected all the time and make the data available faster and in an eco-friendly way too by consuming less energy. The IT budget is always a constrain given now we're trying to show margins by aggressively save costs and thus the low power operation mode of this technology has been of great value add.
We have largely benefitted from the use of hybrid technology for storing our data as we need our data to be available at multiple locations across the globe. Any delay in data access is not appreciated across any of our teams and also impacts our goals or go-to-market timelines. Thus our organization's decision to go with on-premises as well as hybrid cloud storage has been a smart business decision complemented by IBM FlashSystem.
Their vision met and compliments our business objectives and the consulting services provided by them and the ability to help customize our needs.
Scenarios where it is well suited for
  1. enterprise level all flash storage
  2. global access of data over cloud
  3. multiple models to store data though preferred one is hybrid cloud
Scenarios where it is less suited
  1. entry level enterprise mainly because of costs
