The most powerful and easy-to-use innovative disk systems in the storage marketplace

IBM Storwize V7000 and Storwize V7000 Unified are virtualized storage systems designed to consolidate workloads into a single storage system for simplicity of management, reduced cost, highly scalable capacity, performance and high availability. They offer improved efficiency and flexibility through built-in solid state drive (SSD) optimization, thin provisioning and non-disruptive migration of data from existing storage.

They can also virtualize and reuse existing disk systems offering a greater potential return on investment. Storwize V7000 now supports integrated Real-time Compression, enabling storage of up to five times as much active primary data in the same physical space for extraordinary levels of efficiency.

IBM PureFlex Systems, the new IBM family of expert computing systems, integrate server, storage, networking, and management systems for Power Systems and System x architectures. IBM Storwize V7000, integrated into PureFlex Systems, is designed to be easy to use and enable rapid deployment. At the heart of your PureFlex System, Storwize V7000 can become part of your highly efficient, highly capable, next-generation information infrastructure.
