IBM Storwize V7000u Unified Storage Array
The IBM Storwize V7000u Unified Storage Arraycombines a variety of IBM technologies including thin provisioning, automated tiering, storage virtualization, IBM Real-time Compression, clustering, highly-efficient, highly-capable, next-generation information infrastructure, whether your storage environment supports a small or midsize organization or a large, complex data center. Optimizing resources through consolidation can reduce costs and improve productivity. Consolidation can also lead to more efficient maintenance and management of your information infrastructure. By enabling you to scale storage efficiently, consolidation can deliver the capacity you need within the budget you have for the performance you want.
The IBM Storwize V7000u Unified Storage Array is a powerful block storage system that combines hardware and software components to provide a single point of control to help support improved storage efficiency. It is designed to improve application availability and resource utilization by enabling virtualization, consolidation and tiering in businesses of all sizes. The system offers easy-to-use, efficient and cost-effective management capabilities for both
new and existing storage resources in your IT infrastructure.
In server environments, virtualization technologies are often used to improve server utilization, reduce complexity, speed provisioning, consolidate application migration and provide improved flexibility in disaster recovery plans. Storage virtualization is designed to provide similar advantages for your storage environment. Combining storage and server virtualization can build a more powerful virtualized infrastructure for your business and provide greater benefits than either virtualization solution deployed alone.
Virtualizing your storage infrastructure can optimize your expenditures, resources and capabilities. It allows you to scale system capacity and performance more easily to meet your growing information infrastructure needs, reduce the
complexity of management and reduce the risk to your business of system failure.
