A Happy New Year.
today IBM has announced the new FlashSystem 840 model.
Up to 37,5 TiB (41,2 TB) usable capacity (60 TiB raw) including RAID 5 protection, up to 500.000 IO/s (half a million) very suitable for high performance, random read (& write) workload like OLTP or OLAP, like generated by SAP .... but not only by SAP.
Works very well together with storage virtualization, like IBM SVC (SAN Volume Controller). A reference architecture is available. email email@example.com
