The most powerful and easy-to-use innovative disk systems in the storage marketplace
In storage management today, breaking the cycle of increased complexity and explosive data growth can be a big challenge. The old ways of buying and managing storage have become less effective. Due to resource constraints—both physical storage resources and human resources— IT organizations must act quickly to optimize and simplify their infrastructure. Unchecked complexity and growth will only become bigger problems over time.
IT organizations may also suffer from a range of challenges:
Difficulty deploying tiered storage
Concern about growth in storage and storage management costs Inability to share storage among servers
Reduced productivity and increased cost caused by isolated server and storage management tools
Inability to use virtualized storage in the way they use virtual servers, as a tool for optimizing expenditures, resources and capabilities
To stand up to these challenges and allow businesses to respond to a rapidly changing marketplace, IBM Storwize® V7000 and Storwize V7000 Unified are virtualized storage systems to complement virtualized server environments that provide unmatched performance, availability, advanced functions and highly-scalable capacity never seen before in midrange disk systems. As members of the IBM Storwize family, Storwize V7000 and Storwize V7000 Unified are powerful midrange disk systems that have been designed to be easy to use and to enable rapid deployment
