Continuing its commitment to developing and delivering industry-leading storage technologies, IBM is introducing the IBM Storwize V7000, an innovative new storage offering that delivers essential storage efficiency technologies and exceptional ease of use and performance – all integrated into a compact, modular design that’s offered at a competitive, midrange price.

“As the world becomes more interconnected, instrumented and intelligent, more and more information is created. Companies must, as a result, build smarter information infrastructures that can handle all of this information and manage it intelligently,” says Werner Lindemann, executive director for Server Group at IBM.
“The launch of IBM Storwize V7000 means we can offer a new smarter system to enable mid-size companies to not only manage the influx of information and unlock new business opportunities, but do so intelligently.”
IBM Storwize V7000 incorporates some of IBM’s top technologies typically found only in enterprise-class storage systems, raising the standard for storage efficiency in midrange disk systems.
This cutting-edge storage system extends the comprehensive storage portfolio from IBM, and can help change the way organisations address the ongoing information explosion.
IBM Storwize V7000 simplifies management with a groundbreaking GUI that is both powerful and easy to use. This interface can help organisations improve storage performance, efficiency and utilisation rates, while improving storage administrator productivity.
IBM Storwize V7000 includes preinstalled software, simplified provisioning, online data migration and simplified application performance tuning for ease of use.
This storage offering helps organisations deploy solid-state storage confidently, effectively, and economically.
IBM Storwize V7000 provides the following performance features:
*System Storage Easy Tier technology
*Performance management
*Multiple storage tiers
IBM Storwize V7000 integrates top IBM storage efficiency technologies into a modular design that simplifies the addition of more storage technologies. Greater efficiency translates into increased storage utilisation, reduced energy costs. Efficiency highlights include thin provisioning, space-efficient FlashCopy and easy tier.
IBM Storwize V7000 has a dynamic, modular, compact design that sets a new standard for cost-effective midrange disk systems. Instead of buying a whole cabinet and then filling it with disk enclosures over time, the IBM Storwize V7000 uses individual, modular components, providing organisations with reduced space requirements and more flexibility.
Capacity and functionality can be added as needed over time, and with less disruption than with traditional midrange disk systems.
