Abstract

Easy to deploy and manage, IBM FlashSystem 900 is designed to accelerate the applications that drive business. Powered by IBM FlashCore Technology, FlashSystem 900 delivers high performance, IBM MicroLatency, enterprise reliability, and the operational efficiencies required for gaining a competitive advantage in today's dynamic marketplace.

  • Accelerate business-critical applications, support more concurrent users, improve query response times, shorten batch processes, speed backup, and lower virtual desktop costs with extreme performance driven by IBM FlashCore Technology
  • Harness the power of data with the ultra-low response times of IBM MicroLatency
  • Leverage macro-efficiency for higher storage density, lower power consumption, and greater resource utilization
  • Protect critical assets and ensure enterprise reliability with IBM Variable Stripe RAID, redundant components, and concurrent code loads
  • Power faster insight with hardware-accelerated architecture, IBM MicroLatency modules, and the advanced flash management capabilities of IBM FlashCore Technology

IBM FlashSystem 900, including its MicroLatency Flash Modules, is covered by up to seven years of total hardware support through the applicable warranty period plus up to six years of optional post-warranty hardware maintenance. Clients may purchase the post-warranty hardware maintenance either at the time of system purchase or up until IBM announces withdrawal from marketing or withdrawal from service. IBM also may offer warranty service upgrades that provide additional services during the warranty period. IBM reserves the right to modify or withdraw this or any other offerings at any time.

Description

Enterprises around the world must make fast decisions based on real-time insights. In order to accomplish this, they must unleash the power of business-critical applications such as online transaction processing and analytics databases, virtual desktop infrastructures, technical computing applications, and cloud environments. Storage solutions must also fit within tight storage budgets while addressing the need for much less power and space consumption than traditional hard disk drive systems and delivering world-class reliability and operational efficiency.

Flash storage is increasingly popular within all types of organizations, with its ability to deliver fast, reliable, and consistent access to critical data. With the new IBM FlashSystem 900 storage arrays, businesses can make faster decisions based on real-time insights and unleash the power of the most demanding applications, including online transaction processing and analytics databases, virtual desktop infrastructures, technical computing applications, and cloud environments. FlashSystem solutions can fit within the tightest storage budgets because they use much less power and space than traditional hard disk drive systems.

IBM FlashSystem 900 is a fully optimized, all-flash storage array designed to accelerate the applications that drive business. Featuring IBM FlashCore Technology, FlashSystem 900 delivers the high performance, ultra-low latency, enterprise reliability, and superior operational efficiency required for gaining a competitive advantage in today's dynamic marketplace.

Key features include:

  • The ability to support more concurrent users, improve query response times, shorten batch processes, speed backups, and lower virtual desktop costs
  • Powered by IBM FlashCore Technology for consistently high performance at lower cost
  • IBM-enhanced Micron MLC+ technology for higher storage density and improved endurance
  • The ability to scale capacity and performance incrementally to match changing requirements
  • Availability improvements with IBM Variable Stripe RAID to retain completely redundant, hot-swappable components and concurrent code loads

IBM FlashCore Technology is at the center of FlashSystem 900. Hardware-accelerated I/O means that data paths involve redundant, nonblocking crossbar backplanes, hardware-based RAID controllers separated from the system management functionality that allows concurrent code loading, and maintenance with virtually no performance impacts. Advanced flash management features for increased flash endurance and performance with decreased latency include:

  • Variable Stripe RAID technology
  • Unique IBM engineered error correction codes
  • Overprovisioning capabilities
  • Ultra-fast write buffers and hardware-based data offloads
  • Proprietary garbage collection relocation, and block picking algorithms invented by IBM

FlashSystem 900 comes with IBM-enhanced MLC+ technology, providing organizations with the next generation of efficiency, economics, and endurance. IBM MicroLatency delivers microsecond response times to accelerate the most demanding applications. The system includes fully redundant, hot-swappable components and multiple RAID layers for enterprise-class reliability, concurrent code upgrades to help maximize uptime and availability, and support for tool-less, front access to all components for easy serviceability. FlashSystem 900 maintains performance and enhances reliability without sacrificing usable capacity.

IBM FlashSystem 900, including its MicroLatency Flash Modules, is covered by up to seven years of total hardware support through the applicable warranty period plus up to six years of optional post-warranty hardware maintenance. Clients may purchase the post-warranty hardware maintenance either at the time of system purchase or up until IBM announces withdrawal from marketing or withdrawal from service. IBM also may offer warranty service upgrades that provide additional services during the warranty period. IBM reserves the right to modify or withdraw this or any other offerings at any time. Other terms, conditions and exclusions apply. Consult with your advisors about the appropriate financial treatment for this offering. Not available in all countries.

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM System Storage 9840 machine type.

Attributes, as defined in the following feature descriptions, state the interaction of requirements among features.

Minimums and maximums are the absolute limits for a single feature without regard to interaction with other features. The maximum valid quantity for MES orders may be different than for initial orders. The maximums listed below refer to the largest quantity of these two possibilities.

The order type defines if a feature is orderable only on initial orders, only on MES orders, on both initial and MES orders, or if a feature is supported on a model due to a model conversion. Supported features cannot be ordered on the converted model, only left on or removed from the converted model.
