Read quotes from our strong IBM storage community:
"As product development evolves into a shared global engineering enterprise activity, ANSYS customers need scalable simulation data management and storage strategies. IBM's innovative storage solutions, including the new Active Cloud Engine capability in Storwize V7000 and SONAS, will allow our customers to easily and rapidly access any file from any location by leveraging the solution's shared global namespace, multi-site global caching support, and robust scalable architecture. Facilitating easier access to data while eliminating “data islands” will improve collaboration, innovation and productivity for engineering enterprises."
Director of Strategic Partnerships
"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
"Our clients are requesting very high level of security, due to regulatory requirements for banks.

"Symantec and IBM maintain a continuous collaboration process to ensure solution validation and interoperability. Enabling space reclamation for the IBM System Storage DS8000 in conjunction with Veritas Storage Foundation means a boost in storage efficiency for our customers. This fully automated, non-disruptive and integrated thin reclamation solution can help optimize capacity utilization, save storage investment costs, and reduce management overhead."
Vice President, Product Management
"Symantec customers have very high requirements for key business processes that include high performing and reliable storage. Our support for heterogeneous storage environments allows the IBM System Storage DS8000 and XIV series to be quickly and seamlessly integrated into enterprise storage environments. Veritas Storage Foundation from Symantec in conjunction with IBM system storage promises that their critical data is always highly optimized and readily available for round-the-clock access."
Douglas Fallstrom, senior director of Product Management, Storage and Availability Management Group
"Virtual Bridges supplies the technology for the IBM Virtual Desktop with Verde and we understand the demands that a virtual desktop environment places on an underlying storage architecture. Our customers are implementing The IBM Virtual Desktop and other cloud computing models to reduce costs, improve efficiencies, and enable new strategic business directions. We applaud IBM’s recent storage systems announcements, like SmartCloud Storage Access. SmartCloud Storage Access in cooperation with our Storage Optimizer will help our clients realize even more cost effective, efficient, virtualized and automated cloud deployments."
James P. Curtin, President and CEO
"Vision Solutions has worked closely with IBM for more than 20 years to optimize our High Availability solutions to run on IBM Power Systems and support the full range of IBM storage systems to meet and exceed customer requirements for availability. As IT departments both for the midmarket and the enterprise turn increasingly to the Cloud, the enhancements in Power7+ further support Vision’s solutions that provide scalable system and application availability for all resources – physical, virtual or in the Cloud. Together Vision Solutions and IBM enable companies to minimize the costs and business consequences of downtime. We are excited to continue working closely with IBM as the company introduces greater capabilities for our midmarket and enterprise customers including new POWER7+ processors with improved performance and scalability."
Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer
"Our enterprise and midrange clients require the highest levels of service for their business-critical information, and we’re confident that IBM’s new XIV Storage System Gen3 model will more than meet their needs. XIV enables fast information delivery with built-in efficiencies, and the new model will dramatically boost performance with improved SSD caching while lowering TCO with new energy-efficient power supply units."
"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."
Vice President, End User Computing Product Marketing
"We are pleased to see IBM provide Real-time Compression enhancements on the Storwize Platform, enabling customers to achieve faster VMware vMotion migrations. The Storwize Platform with VMware solutions can provide organizations with the ability to realize greater performance, agility, and return on investment of their virtualized infrastructure."
"The IBM Storwize family easily integrates with several VMware solutions to drive efficiencies and faster time to value for virtualized infrastructures and cloud deployments. This includes integration with VMware vSphere 5.5 through the VASA and VAAI APIs, and VMware products such as SRM and vCenter Server."
Vice President, Cloud Infrastructure Products
"VAI’s customers have very high requirements for security, scalability and continuous access to their data and key business processes. We have optimized our S2K applications to run on IBM Power enterprise systems to meet and exceed those customer requirements. We are excited to continue working with IBM as the company introduces greater capabilities for our customers including new POWER7+ processors and improvements to IBM i, PowerHA, PowerSC, PowerVM and the rest of the Power Systems portfolio.
VAI is also excited about the new IBM Smarter Storage solution announcements that will enable fast information delivery, enhanced data security, with built-in efficiencies. Our enterprise customers rely on robust solutions to handle expanding business volumes with excellent performance and a high degree of security. IBM storage systems like the new DS8870 and enhanced XIV Gen3 more than fit the bill."
"As the banking industry in China continues to develop dramatically, the data volumes associated with the banking system and customer business keep on increasing and expanding. As a result, banks would like to rebuild their information systems to handle the demands of increasing business volume. IBM enterprise systems, including System z, Power and Storage, can provide a stable environment for hardware and the entire system, high data processing capacity, high data security, environmentally friendly operation and high maintainability. From these perspectives, IBM enterprise systems are the first choice for many banks in China."
