According to the IDC, the amount of data stored worldwide is doubling every two years. The sheer scale of the data is accelerating the speed of business. Put this up against the backdrop of ever-increasing challenges regarding security. Businesses that recognize the real value of data and equip themselves with innovative solutions and essential skills put their IT infrastructure at the forefront of the transformation in data value.

IBM Flash Storage solutions give you the micro latency performance you need to adjust prices, optimize inventory, prevent fraud and more — all at top speed. The latest offering in the IBM FlashSystem family — the 9100 — combines the performance of flash and Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) with the reliability and innovation of IBM FlashCore technology and the rich features of IBM Spectrum Virtualize software, all in a powerful 2U storage system.

What’s more? IBM FlashSystem 9100 recently received the award for Most Innovative Flash Memory Technology at the 2018 Flash Memory Summit (FMS) in Santa Clara, California.

“With its FlashSystem 9100, IBM is making it easier to optimize the value of data in terms of speed, availability, reliability, and resilience.”
