Abstract: This document summarizes the results of a first Proof of Concept of running IBM i on a IBM FlashSystem managed by an IBM Storwize V7000. The goals were to demonstrate the simplicity of the setup, to validate if IBM FlashSystem could help improving performance on an IBM i environment, and to use performance data with existing tools such as the IBM i SSD Analyzer Tool or iDoctor to help you predict what workloads or jobs would benefit the most of Flash technology.
