Faster storage analytics, faster time to insight

Next-generation data analytics are more important than ever and companies that can harness the power of their data and automation will have a huge competitive advantage over those who can’t.

Regardless of where your data resides, on-premises or in the cloud, fast access is a must-have for big data analytics. Additionally, as your business grows, your storage infrastructure needs to be scalable enough to process data at lightning speed, remain easy to deploy and use - all while keeping costs low.

With features including high performance, consistent latency across read and write operations and seamless mobility environments, wherever your data resides, IBM Storage FlashSystem all-flash arrays are designed to meet all your data storage analytics needs.

Be flashy with computational storage

Flash memory helps you achieve faster response times and IBM Storage FlashSystem solutions offer storage arrays with the high availability and low latency needed to reduce downtime and improve data management.

Swiftly adapt to new workloads with real-time analytics delivered by IBM FlashCore® Modules - available on all IBM Storage FlashSystem platforms. Consistent, predictable performance across multiple storage devices, data sources and formats power any analytics tool and the high performance, agile data experience from an IBM Storage FlashSystem solution delivers real-time modern analytics.

The smartest way to store all your data

How you store and use your data sets is crucial to your business and a solid foundation that integrates high performance computing (HPC), AI, machine learning and predictive analytics is key. The innovative design of IBM Storage FlashSystem solutions offer unparalleled scalability - increase your storage density up to 1PB of effective capacity per rack unit. It’s a high-performance all-flash storage solution designed for data centers handling today’s most demanding apps and workloads, including data analytics.

Shift frequently used data from hard disk drive (HDD) MDisks to flash-based storage MDisks automatically and seamlessly with IBM Easy Tier®. This feature detects HDDs in storage pool, easing the process of moving frequently used data on volumes to more suitable storage. Due to its dynamically tiered architecture, data transfer is transparent to the host application, regardless of which tier the data belongs to. 

Enhance your flash storage analytics while reducing storage costs. Automate data placement and store more in the same amount of space using compression, space-efficient snapshots and deduplication.
