IBM Elastic Storage System 3000

Fast time to value

ESS 3000 combines IBM Spectrum Scale file management software with NVMe flash storage for the ultimate in scale-out performance and simplicity, delivering 40GB/s of data throughput per 2U system.

Operational efficiency

Containerized software install and a powerful management GUI minimize demands on IT staff time and expertise. Dense storage within a 2U package means a small data center footprint.


Software-defined erasure coding assures data recovery while using less space than data replication. Restores can take minutes rather than hours or days and can be run without disrupting operations.

Deployment flexibility

Available in a wide range of capacities from tens to hundreds of terabytes per 2U. Deploy as a standalone edge system or scale out with additional ESS 3000 systems or with IBM Elastic Storage Server.
