Storage virtualization makes your data and storage resources for virtualized server and desktop environments secure, reliable and efficient.

Utilize cloud agility to maximize the value of your data from the edge to the cloud. With hybrid cloud and cloud-native data architecture, you can easily power all your apps, streamline data administration, and reduce silos and complexity to optimize your data center. Host-based all as-a-Service functionality is even possible.

Regardless of where your storage infrastructure resides, you can manage all your storage devices with the same tools, operating systems and interfaces as you would on-premises. This is made possible through virtual environments built with IBM Spectrum® Virtualize, the software powering the IBM FlashSystem®.
