IBM FlashSystem™ arrays enable a wide range of powerful business solutions. Because of our focus on foundational hardware engineering, FlashSystem is inherently more capable of being integrated into customized solutions using a wide range of products from our many IBM and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partners. We call these product integrations -- EcoSystem solutions.
"FIS has tested and certified IBM FlashSystem 840. FlashSystems' enterprise ready extreme performance and application latency reductions capability provides an infrastructure that is critical to the success of today's core banking application environments."

"Using IBM Storage and Power Systems servers, we were able to scale our FIS IST / Switch application far beyond previous limits. Two benchmarks were performed; one using IBM’s FlashSystem and a second using the IBM DS8800 + SSDs. During both benchmarks, we processed over 10,000 transactions per second with zero errors for more than 30 minutes continuously, representing a 3.6 times increase over previous tests."
FIS Director Strategic Development
“In STAC-M3 benchmark tests – considered the gold standard for measuring speed managing market data for capital markets systems – the combination of IBM Power System S824 server and FlashSystem 840 and McObject’s eXtremeDB Financial Edition database management system (DBMS) shattered records, generating best-ever results in nine of the STAC-M3’s 17 tests. The fiber channel-attached FlashSystem 840 played a critical role in achieving these results, providing dozens of terabytes of low-latency flash RAID-protected storage, in support of a highly distributed data design (the eXtremeDB Financial Edition database was partitioned horizontally across 72 shards). The track records of the McObject and IBM technology, along with their record-setting performance in the STAC-M3 Benchmark, recommend their use together in financial systems ranging from trading and order execution to algorithmic back-testing of data, real-time risk analytics and reporting, and correlation of trading and exposure across multiple asset classes and trading venues.”

"Extreme desktop performance that scales to thousands of users without the deployment risks — that's what your Citrix or VMware VDI deployment can get by leveraging Atlantis ILIO software with IBM FlashSystem. Our benchmark testing shows you can achieve 14x better disk performance than a PC, microsecond latency and a 75% lower cost per desktop."
Vice President of Products
"Infosys Finacle helps banks transform their business models faster, to make banking more relevant, personal, engaging, and simple. Banking workloads, delivery channels and transaction volumes are increasing, requiring higher data processing capacity, high data security, enhanced reliability and availability which clients come to expect from their banking systems.
Based on recent validation, Finacle is convinced that the combination of IBM POWER8 servers and FlashSystem 840 storage provides our clients with one of the best infrastructure for delivering high performance and low latency with cost benefits over traditional storage. Early results suggest that this combination would be able to meet clients' overall performance expectations."

"When we tested our application on POWER8 using IBM Flash Storage, we were amazed by the performance increase. It’s the first time we have seen such a huge jump in technology: it’s disruptive! Our plan is to offer both a IBM i and a Linux on Power solutions so that we can extend our reach in the market place. Our initial performance testing with Linux on Power was easy and straight forward and shows great promise for price/performance over x86."
"IBM FlashSystem with VMware Horizon View provides organizations with enterprise reliability and macro efficiency, creating a powerful offering for VDI deployments. IBM SAN Volume Controller technology with VMware VDI solutions can drive VDI storage to high levels of efficiency through advanced technologies like storage virtualization, Easy Tier and Real-time Compression."
