FREMONT, CA:  IBM unveils two new all-flash enterprise solutions, the FlashSystem V900 and FlashSystem 900, to help organizations in providing high performance, reliability and efficiency by accelerating data efficiency.

With IBM FlashSystem V900, users can consolidate their existing storage system under one management domain, and implement leading-edge virtualization storage services throughout. It offers the advantage of software-defined storage. On the other hand, Flash System 900 can be deployed in two hours and it focuses on extreme performance, enterprise reliability and macro efficiency.

IBM’s new solutions will help businesses such as Coco-Cola Bottled Consolidated to unleash the power of Big Data, achieve real-time business insights, make better decisions and gain competitive advantage. With this technology Coco-Cola is able to process 10,000 data points to 3.5Mn data points per day.

FlashCore technology is a suite of innovations and capabilities that enables FlashSystem to deliver better performance than enterprise disk system. This FlashSystem features Micron’s MLC flash chip technology, taking advantage of chips density and cost benefits.

“In order to unlock key insights from big data through analytics, more and more customers, like Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated, are using IBM FlashSystem to accelerate mission-critical applications and improve operations and services. These IBM solutions can offer extraordinary advantage to any business eager to make more, spend less, and move faster,” says Jamie Thomas, General Manager, Storage and Software Defined Systems, IBM.
