To meet today's complex and ever-changing business demands, you need a solid foundation of compute, storage, networking and software resources that is simple to deploy and can quickly and automatically adapt to changing conditions. You also need to be able to take advantage of broad expertise and proven best practices in systems management, applications, hardware maintenance and more.
The IBM PureFlex System combines advanced IBM storage hardware and storage management software, along with patterns of expertise and integrate them in complete, optimised solutions.
Advanced storage features, integrated with your existing infrastructure
IBM® Storwize® V7000 storage systems integrated into the PureFlex System are designed to be easy to use and enable rapid deployment. Storwize V7000 systems support extraordinary performance and flexibility through built-in solid state drive (SSD) optimisation and thin provisioning technologies. With non-disruptive migration of data from existing storage, you also get simplified implementation, minimising disruption to users. And advanced storage features like automated tiering, storage virtualisation, clustering, replication and multi-protocol support are designed to help you improve the efficiency of your storage. As part of your PureFlex System, Storwize V7000 can become part of your highly efficient, highly capable, next-generation information infrastructure.
