IBM continues to produce cost-efficient and practical storage solutions to address modern business and technology challenges facing organizations today. New Storwize V5000 family offerings have been announced to compliment Storwize V7000 Gen3, the Storwize V5010E and Storwize V5030E. These models bring NVMe into the mid-range market; a massive advancement for the IBM Storwize family.
Storwize V5100F and V5100 bring NVMe performance advantages into a new affordable system. Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) technology lowers storage latency and powerfully utilizes analytics and AI applications, which have been permeating throughout the economy. These models combine the proven capabilities of IBM FlashCore technology with NVMe performance and the rich enterprise-class data services of IBM Spectrum Virtualize software-defined storage to create a solution with the capability, scalability and speed required to support demanding AI and analytics applications.
Another deployment model sweeping modern businesses is multicloud architectures. Organizations have discovered the need to keep some data on-prem while also shifting some data to the cloud for cost-efficiency and agility. The entire IBM Storwize family, SAN Volume Controller, FlashSystem 9100, and VersaStack leverage the capabilities of IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud to simplify the implementation of multicloud solutions. In fact, Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud can now be deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS) as well as on IBM Cloud to increase flexibility and choice.
With the combination of NVMe-powered IBM Flashcore technology and the richest set of IBM Spectrum Virtualize features, you can see how IBM Storwize V5100 and Storwize V5100F are the next best installments of IBM’s affordable storage solutions.
