Overall Satisfaction with IBM FlashSystem

IBM FlashSystem 7200 was used to simplify the most complex storage tasks of hybrid clouds. It was used by one of the departments for one of implementing hybrid cloud storage for one of their end customers. For us, simplifying those complexities of hybrid cloud storage was one of the primary business problems that was addressed by using IBM FlashSystem 7200.
  • Simplifying complexities of hybrid cloud storage
  • Consolidate and manage storage arrays as one pool
  • Reduces admin efforts in managing day to day cloud storage
  • Cost is little on higher side.
  • At times data storage and retrievals were slower.
  • Number of firmware updates can be reduced.
  • Seamless mobility of data hence making it easy for admins.
  • Insights using predictive analysis was helpful.
  • Saves time for admins with its easy to install firmware upgrades.
Performance and accesses of IBM FlashSystem were slightly fast when compared to its closest competition. IBM Flash System also seamlessly ports data into hybrid cloud storage very conveniently when compared to others. So I can say it is a good product with almost all the features and certainly gives a tough competition when priced right.
Consolidating and managing storage arrays as one pool. Performance is good and second to none. IBM FlashSystem enables seamless data mobility across your on-premises cloud into hybrid cloud storage. Upgrading to bigger drives was a tedious process. Managing more number of firmware updates released per year can be reduced so that it eases the admins day to day job.
