IBM FlashSystem 810 and IBM FlashSystem 710

Accelerate enterprise applications with extreme-performance flash storage

Tab navigation


Flash technology is rapidly defining a new business landscape, where organisations can perform advanced data analytics faster than ever to gain a competitive advantage. IBM flash storage offerings provide extreme IOPS and low-latency performance to turbocharge these new IT infrastructures. When compared to equivalent disk systems, IBM flash storage solutions deliver 6.7 times more capacity in a single rack, 19 times more cost efficiency in dollars/per IOPS, and are 115 times more energy efficient.1

IBM FlashSystem 810 and IBM FlashSystem 710 are designed to speed up the performance of critical enterprise applications, including data warehousing and OLAP applications, content delivery networks, video rendering and editing software, and 3D modeling and simulation applications. These systems deliver extreme performance per gigabyte so organisations can quickly uncover business insights from IBM DB2, Oracle and other database applications. In addition, FlashSystem 810 and FlashSystem 710 eliminate storage bottlenecks with MicroLatency that enables faster decision making.

IBM offers a broad systems and storage portfolio combined with decades of experience solving real business problems. With x86, POWER and mainframe systems, disk, tape and network storage systems, IBM can offer the right combination of systems to meet the challenges of your business.


Storage efficiency is more vital than ever. Your disk utilisation rate may be as low as 20% — while the amount of data you are required to store is exploding. IBM Storage can help.


The smarter data centre with improved economics of IT can be achieved by connecting servers and storage with a high-speed and intelligent network fabric that is smarter, faster, greener, open and easy to manage. IBM takes an open, standards-based approach to implement the latest advances in today’s flat, converged data centre network designs.


IBM's comprehensive Systems Software solutions help to centralise, streamline and automate your physical and virtual infrastructure, allowing you to optimise workloads and increase your ability to deliver IT services that align with business goals. Let us show you how IBM Systems Software helps you realise the value of IBM smarter computing, by allowing a more effective use of the advanced features in IBM hardware and operating systems.

Integrated solutions

The reality is that you need an IT infrastructure designed for data, tuned to the task and managed in the cloud. If your IT staff spends all of their time managing IT, they won’t be working with you to drive innovation. You need your infrastructure to help you in the marketplace, to help you innovate, to help you be more competitive, to help you succeed.

Systems-related services

IBM Systems-related services offers a full range of services to help design, develop, integrate, optimise, validate and deploy comprehensive solutions that support On Demand Business.
