Nobody disputes the IOPs power of all flash storage arrays compared to hard disk drives. This interesting comparison showed that across multiple configurations, IOPS on flash was as much as 80 times greater.
Did you know that over 500,000 IBM Redbooks are downloaded every month? That’s a lot of IBM Redbooks! You can learn more about IBM Redbooks in general and the Catalogic volume in particular by watching IBM Redbook: Software Defined Agility for IBM Storage with Catalogic
For those who missed it, we recently had a great webinar on “IT Modernization with IBM FlashSystem V9000 and Catalogic Software,” which featured Patty Crowell of IBM plus our own Christian Burns presenting and Sathya Sankaran driving the live demo. You can catch the video replay on our webinar page (scroll down to the Previous Webinars section).
This was a wide ranging webinar with content suitable for end-users as well as IBM resellers and IBM field personnel.
IBM white paper explains the “leading-edge suite of storage services” that Catalogic ECX brings to the FlashSystem V9000.
A freak lightning bolt struck forensic scientist Barry Allen, turning him into the world’s fastest human: The Flash! That very same lightning bolt is hitting your data center, turning your storage into flash storage. Or at least it should be. If not, you might just find yourself with a data center where nothing goes quite as fast as it needs to. With flash storage the future is now, but to get the most value out of it you’re going to need the right tools.
The combination of Catalogic ECX and the IBM FlashSystem V9000 drives exciting new use cases.
It’s a flashy world out there and it’s getting flashier all the time. No, I don’t mean flashy as in Taylor Swift’s Girl Squad, but flashy as in all-flash storage.
Who would have thought even a few years ago that all-flash storage systems would be well on their way to being the de facto choice for enterprise storage? Spinning disk has a long life ahead of it, no doubt, and like tape storage, it will hang around longer than an ardent flash advocate might think. After all, we’re still waiting for the last mainframe to be unplugged—a common prediction in the 1990s which now seems ridiculous.
