Announcing the new IBM FlashSystem family — one platform to simplify your hybrid multicloud storage

The new IBM FlashSystem family simplifies storage for hybrid multicloud. With a unified set of software, APIs and tools, IBM FlashSystem (which now includes products formerly known as Storwize) addresses the entire range of storage needs with one data platform that extends enterprise functionality throughout your storage estate.  FlashSystem is a single family powered by IBM Spectrum Virtualize that extends to the cloud, simplifies management with IBM Storage Insights, supports the latest in containers, and designed for complete peace of mind with IBM FlashWatch.

Protect, manage, and extend your data to the cloud with more innovation, less complexity and lower costs.

Pay for capacity while you use it, don’t pay up front

Finance a FlashSystem with monthly payments over a 3-year term and have the possibility to either keep it, refresh or simply walk away. Refresh your FlashSystem for the same monthly price or less, or upsize/downsize your system to meet your needs and have the advantage of a 3-month transition period with no dual billing. 

Also available with cloud-like pricing.
