This high-speed, reliable, and cost-effective system supports your most demanding applications such as online transaction processing, analytics databases, virtual desktop infrastructures, technical computing applications, and cloud environments. Powered by IBM FlashCore® technology, FlashSystem 900 delivers real-time insights, empowering your enterprise to quickly make data-driven decisions to gain competitive advantage.
IBM FlashCore technology and IBM-enhanced 3D TLC speed insights with hardware-accelerated architecture with NVM access, IBM MicroLatency® modules, and advanced flash management capabilities.
The new generation FlashSystem 900 uses inline hardware compression to build on existing space efficiency and save power compared to traditional hard disk drive and solid-state disk solutions.
FlashSystem 900 delivers five-nines reliability to your environment with fully redundant components, two dimensions of RAID, and advanced flash management.
The IBM FlashCore® innovations that power IBM FlashSystem 900 include a hardware-accelerated NVM architecture with essentially no software in the data path. This drives consistent ultra-low latency, high I/O’s per second, and high bandwidth even while compressing data. For business-critical applications this means lower response times, faster batch processes, and highly scalable analytics solutions.Watch the video (02:55)
FlashSystem 900 uses enterprise-class, two-dimensional flash RAID technology, leveraging both Variable Stripe RAID and system-level RAID 5 to deliver five-nines availability. Variable Stripe RAID maintains system performance and capacity in the event of partial or full-flash chip failures, helping reduce downtime and delay system repairs. System-wide RAID 5 also helps prevent data loss and improves availability.
IBM FlashCore technology refers to the IBM innovations that enable FlashSystem storage to deliver extreme performance, IBM MicroLatency®, enterprise-grade reliability, and a wide range of operational and cost efficiencies. These technologies and innovations are represented in the FlashCore hardware-accelerated architecture, IBM MicroLatency modules, and many other advanced flash management features and capabilities.Watch the video (05:43)
Get the ultimate in flexibility with a new way to procure data capacity with instant-on access. This offering is unique because it allows you to predict monthly data capacity costs and pay only for the capacity you need, whether your data grows or shrinks. Drive new Capex costs over to the Opex line and save on the way. No need to over purchase or lease large amounts of capacity for "just in case" needs. Simply use the data that your business needs and this offering will take care of the rest.
IBM FlashSystem 900 utilises innovative inline data compression technology implemented below the RAID level in each Microlatency module. The hardware-accelerated compression provides more consistent data reduction than ever before across an even wider range of workloads, without negatively impacting performance.Watch the video (01:17)
The IBM FlashSystem 900 is Kroll Ontrack certified and ENERGY STAR certified. ENERGY STAR, managed by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is a voluntary program which sets energy efficiency and labeling requirements for different product types to identify and promote energy-efficient products.
