The era of big data is here, driven by the need for more data and faster data access. Low-latency performance in applications such as real-time business analytics, life sciences research, rich-media entertainment, weather forecasting, social media feeds and stock market transactions require high-performance storage architectures. In addition, today’s organizations need ways to improve operational efficiency while maintaining the same data center footprint, quality of service and high availability.
The IBM System Storage® DCS3700 storage system is ready to meet the challenge. Designed for applications with high-performance streaming data requirements, DCS3700 offers optimal space utilization, low power consumption and high performance. By combining proven IBM storage controllers with up to 60 drives in just 4U of rack space, DCS3700 can reduce operational costs for capacity-intensive applications.
DCS3700 provides a simple, efficient and flexible approach to storage that is based on seven generations of design knowledge and firmware development. DCS3700 can act as a cost-effective, fully integrated complement to IBM System x®, IBM BladeCenter® and IBM Power Systems™ servers for a wide variety of intensive computing environments.
