Overall Satisfaction with IBM Storwize

We use a Storwize V7000 for backups and testing of copy services. It addresses the problem of recovering from a failure of our primary storage systems.
  • Low cost
  • High capacity
  • Good for backups
  • Would benefit from internal flash
  • Could use more streamlined port assignments
  • Protects production systems by providing point in time backups
  • Protects important data without adding 2x cost
Storwize does not have the performance of FlashSystem, but it’s low cost and high capacity options make it competitive as an option for point-in-time copies and backups.
Storwize is an excellent backup solution that works very well for us. It is great for high capacity, low speed use cases. It would be less appropriate for production systems or applications requiring the lowest response time.
