IBM Storwize V7000 gives massive benefits to SAN infrastructures. It can work in conjunction with existing Fibre Channel SANs to provide the latest capabilities and maximise return on your investment whether it's replacing a SAN that doesn't meet your requirements or you want to enhance the capacity to an existing one.

The hierarchical storage and intelligent data placement in the advanced file storage functionality further increases the value of the V7000.

The capabilities of the "Active Cloud Engine" make sure that files are stored on the appropriate performance disks when they're created. Automatic migration reduces costs further by moving files to lower cost storage when they become inactive.

IBM Storwize V7000 - Key Points

Economical

IBM Storwize V7000 allows you to use your existing storage capabilities rather than leaving it inactive.

Powerful

The performance of your storage capabilities can be improved with the EasyTier soft (included as standard) and optional solid state drives (SSDs), which can be easily upgraded with more controllers for more power in future.

Scalable

The Storwize V700 uses an easy to operate clustered, storage virtualisation platform, which can scale your storage environment outwards and upwards to meet the ever changing demands of your business.

Simple

IBM Storwize V7000 has a highly evolved storage management interface which can be integrated easily. This allows data to migrate from existing storage systems keeping disruption to users as minimal as possible and allows existing systems to be virtualised.

Efficient

IBM Storwize uses FlashCopy to conserve space with thin provisioning and customised views. It is so efficient that it is possible to reclaim wasted space and makes storage work by provisioning thick volumes. The amount of disk drives used is kept to a minimum increasing its energy efficiency.

Protected

Regardless of your existing storage vendor, IBM Storwize V7000 offers new options for protection with little investment due to the potential of replicating critical data. It can integrate with your key business applications to shorten backup windows and rapidly recover lost data.
