Overall Satisfaction with IBM FlashSystem

IBM FlashSystem 7200 is the best solution for enterprise flash array storage, as it really solves the issue of multi-form storage that we did not give much of our attention to initially. IBM FlashSystem 7200 has so many storage options, which are of great benefit and importance for me and my business on so many levels. The workloads of IBM FlashSystem 7200 are very high performing which is great.
  • I use this for record-keeping, which is a highly transactional process and I don’t feel that there was a better option available than IBM FlashSystem 7200.
  • We have never really faced any major issues as far as performance is concerned with IBM FlashSystem 7200.
  • The software also has a low latency rate, which is amazing because it means that the network is optimized to process at a relatively high volume.
  • I personally feel that IBM FlashSystem 7200 should really improve their online compression because it requires further attention to become a better platform.
  • IBM FlashSystem 7200 should also have a deduplication feature, which will also be beneficial.
  • The maintenance of IBM FlashSystem 7200 is also quite costly, which is not easily affordable for all.
  • IBM FlashSystem 7200 has a spare drive system, which has never disappointed me so far. Furthermore, security and the policies of IBM FlashSystem 7200 are also great just like a user would want.
As a user with my personal experience, I feel that IBM FlashSystem 7200 is well suited for organizations that have medium to high workloads. Compression and deduplication are some important features that are needed here. The performance of IBM FlashSystem 7200 is also great and that is a reason for recommending it to businesses. However, businesses that are at the entry level can avoid this and search for better alternatives mainly because of the high cost.
