IBM HAS ANNOUNCED two new enterprise flash products. IBM FlashSystem is the company's software-defined storage 'at the speed of flash', with the company now offering the V9000, an all in one consolidation solution and the 900 designed for quick deployment.
The FlashSystem V9000 allows for consolidation under a single management domain, offering storage and virtualisation throughout the business.
The FlashSystem 900 offers a more entry-level high speed solution which is configured for fast deployment.
Both run on technology known as IBM Flashcore which is centred around creating cloud architectures, offering analytics, flexible mobility and real-time threat detection.
"Many of our clients are pressured to derive greater business value from an ever growing amount of data," said Jamie Thomas, general manager for storage and software-defined systems at IBM.
"In order to unlock key insights from big data through analytics, more and more clients are using IBM FlashSystem to accelerate mission-critical applications and improve operations and services. These IBM solutions can offer extraordinary advantage to any business eager to make more, spend less and move faster."
IBM has created FlashSystem using technology from Micron's MLC chips, exploiting density and cost benefits to create stronger data protection and improved reliability.
"IBM is a powerful leader in storage, globally recognised for delivering solutions that transform businesses," said Darren Thomas, vice president of storage at Micron.
"For FlashSystem, IBM draws on Micron’s flash expertise and deep flash media knowledge to deliver a truly differentiated storage solution. This unique collaboration signifies the future of enterprise storage."
Even traditional spindle drive manufacturers such as HGST are moving toward hybrid solutions incorporating flash, as detailed at an event attended by The INQUIRER in San Francisco last year, followed by its purchase of flash start-up Skyera in December. µ
