What is Flash Storage?

Flash storage is a storage method based on flash memory. Flash memory reduces energy consumption, requires less space than physical hard drives and provides superior performance.

IBM Flash storage solutions provide the micro-latency, scalable performance and operational efficiency needed to unlock insights from massive volumes of data. Now you can do more with less to outsmart—not outspend—your competitors.
