Texas Memory Systems – now the IBM FlashSystem™ family

Flash optimisation for a Smarter Storage infrastructure

Information for TMS Customers: Changes to Business Processes

IBM recently acquired TMS, innovators of high performance flash storage. On April 11, 2013, IBM announced the IBM FlashSystem family. The transfer of business of TMS to IBM will be complete on May 1, 2013.

As a customer of IBM, you will continue to have access to TMS offerings, now under the IBM brand, as well as have access to the extensive IBM portfolio of software solutions and services offerings. You will also continue to receive the high-quality, responsive ser-vice you’ve come to expect from both TMS and IBM. Most of your contacts in sales, sales support and education will remain the same.

We anticipate that you and your organisation will experience a smooth transition to IBM over the next several months. During this process, the IBM team and your IBM TMS representatives are available to answer any questions and to address your ongoing product and service needs.

Systems

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

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.

Networking

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.

Software

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.
