We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
If your virtual machine that resides on it completely fills the storage space, thanks to it's built-in function of all-zero data space reclamation, you just have to ask to System Engineer to run a zero-free on hosts (thin provisioned) and you will get more space instantaneously.Stability: The product is designed to have always HA (High Availability) with redundant network and processors.

The FS900 uses custom built flash modules offering with better latency, and is also denser packed then most modular all-flash arrays using commodity SSDs.An easy interface to set up, good build quality, and easily accessible parts for hot swapping combined with sub 500 us latency under heavy load.The initial customer technical support was efficient and effective.The performance monitoring feature is useful as it can report in 15 minute intervals by hour, day, week, month, or by a custom date range.The FlashSystem 900 consistently delivers performance below 1ms for read/write. This performance is essential for an effective SVC stretch-cluster configuration across two datacenters, and presenting active-active storage to the customer.The most valuable features are, of course, the virtualization of the storage, the performance, and the compression.The speed of the unit is its best feature. It performs very well.The speed and the ease of installation are the most valuable features.

Cons
Unfortunately, this product doesn't support Flash Disks, but it's IOPS capacity is a great compromise.Configuration complexity and the tools available.

When we performed some HW fault tests under heavy load, we found that some of the parts (fan units and PSUs) should only be removed from the airflow for a short time (less than a minute) when replacing.Include an option to upload the support package to the IBM ECuRep when opening an IBM PMR.With regards to the IBM V7000 storage system, where we have multiple tiers of storage, a heat map would show I/O distribution across the tiers of storage.I would like to see bigger modules.I would like to have a larger disk. Right now, you can get 57 terabytes in a shelf. Once they get the larger disk and you get larger capacities, it'll be even better.The array level RAID does not seem available.It has room for improvement in the area of stability.

The total storage capacity vs price is still quite high for the IBM Flash Array.Pricing can be considered as per market competition.
