IBM FlashSystem V9000
IBM FlashSystem V9000 Enterprise delivers the full capabilities of Software Defined Storage from IBM plus the scalable performance of flash system storage in one enterprise storage system. Business critical applications can be accelerated thanks to external virtualization and flash performance. A wide range of storage services consolidates existing storage systems into one management interface.
A variety of different applications and infrastructures can be accelerated with FlashSystem V9000. It can be deployed in high-performance database applications such as Oracle, SAP or IBM DB2. In this scenario this solution shows its strengths by managing a large number of users simultaneously, performing challenging database requests and high performance requirements on one single system. To meet the I/O requirements of mixed workload environments, the FlashSystem V9000 achieves up to 2,500,000 IOPS. This is done with IBM MicroLatency with a constant low latency.
The real-time compression function of the FlashSystem V9000 supports hardware compression acceleration to increase effective capacity of storage systems up to five times with over 1,000,000 IOPS. Compression is not recommended for all workloads; IBM supports compression based on individual volumes.
With easy tiering data can be automatically moved between various storage classes based on their access frequency. Combined with thin provisioning this optimises the existing storage array.
To consolidate existing storage islands data can be dynamically moved between different storage devices. QoS for storage can be used to guarantee or limit application performance.
Another important feature is the comprehensive DR options provided by the FlashSystem V9000. Snapshots, clones and various options for synchronous or asynchronous replication allow you to replicate a variety of high availability and business continuance scenarios.
FlashSystem V9000 can manage up to 2.2 PB internally and accommodates an external storage capacity of up to 32 PB which can be administered from a standardized user interface regardless of the storage systems connected. FlashSystem V9000 can systematically optimize all resources with a focus on performance and efficiency.
