Members of the IBM Storwize® family, IBM Storwize V7000 and Storwize V7000 Unified are virtualized software defined storage systems designed to consolidate workloads into a single storage system for simplicity of management, reduced cost, highly scalable capacity, performance and high availability. These systems offer improved efficiency and flexibility through built-in flash storage optimization, thin provisioning and non-disruptive migration from existing storage. They can also virtualize existing disk systems for a better return on investment.
IBM PureFlex™ Systems is the IBM family of expert computing systems, integrating server, storage, networking, and management systems. The IBM Flex System V7000 Storage Node is available as an integrated component of IBM Flex System™ and IBM PureFlex Systems. Flex System V7000 is functionally equivalent to Storwize V7000 and is seamlessly integrated into the Flex System Manager, for efficiency, ease of use, and rapid deployment.
