Not all flash is created equal, and IBM FlashCore® Modules deliver computational storage drive capacity in a class all on its own. They run at the highest capacity with a guaranteed 3:1 data compression sight unseen and up to a 5:1 compression guaranteed with testing. The drives deliver best-in-class storage management, performance, provisioning and storage retrieval with latency as low as 50 microseconds. And they offer the longest lifespan with patented variable voltage technology, reducing the environmental impact and e-waste of data storage.
Because of the innovative IBM FlashCore Modules, the FlashSystem devices are able to guarantee that they will not exceed a certain energy efficiency (W/TB) amount across all FlashCore Module drive configurations, reducing carbon emissions. This improves client’s environmental impact from their data storage with some configurations guaranteed as low as a 1.7 W/TB maximum, supporting green IT initiatives.
As companies grow and IT sustainability initiatives become more imperative, securing large amounts of data while reducing power consumption and overall data center energy costs is possible with flash data storage on IBM FlashSystem devices. Safeguard critical data and achieve environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals with IBM’s differentiated technology. IBM designs the FlashSystem data storage devices for the environment throughout the entire supply chain and lifecycle to ensure we make a positive impact on climate change.
Explore solutions to help reduce your carbon footprint, the amount of energy used and your power consumption costs while storing large volumes of datasets. Enrich your functionality in your data storage and lower your power usage by investing in IBM FlashSystem storage today.
Don't just store, accelerate. IBM Storage FlashSystem 5200 is the perfect all-in-one hybrid cloud solution for medium and large organization storage environments. With flash and AI, you can deploy the most cost efficient and powerful storage solution on the market.

1. Based on comparable configurations between IBM FlashSystem and a 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant report participant: https://www.ibm.com/blog/announcement/ibm-positioned-as-a-leader-in-gartner-magic-quadrant/. Each comparison was at the same temperature, memory, and core frequencies with comparable raw capacities and system performances. For each configuration, the power of the devices were estimated with engineering calculations from the typical power withdraw of the CPUs, drives and components on each of the devices.
