IBM FlashSystem Initial Setup

The initial setup was a little complicated, especially the storage part of the implementation. The solution itself is complicated as well. There are multiple applications which require better performance as well as space. Both were a big issue. Some features were expensive, but we had to meet the storage requirement as well as the performance for these and had to design a solution to meet these two requirements. It was an implementation handled in phases, so it took about four to five months to deploy the complete solution. We went phase by phase and then we did a performance analysis at the end of each phase to make sure that the storage performance was not going down and we were getting the best performance out of the bots. After every phase we had and throughout each phase, we had multiple performance and penetration tests as well; this was all mandatory. We had about five people helping with the implementation. For maintenance, as long as you have an experienced person or team, you only need one or two people. View full review »

The setup of the IBM devices is really straightforward. The actual deployment for the IBM FlashSystem took about seven hours. One of our partners was responsible for this, and we are very satisfied with his performance. View full review »

The initial setup is very similar to setting up the IBM family of enterprise storage products (V7000, V9000, SVC, etc.). View full review »
