IBM Storwize Valuable Features

The user interface is very mature and it's becoming more mature all the time. They made it very easy for the user, very friendly to work with. They have a virtualization feature and, even if you do not want to buy that feature, you can have it as a trial for two to three months. If you have another brand of storage from another company, you can use this tool to transfer all your data from the old system to the new Storwize system, which really shortens the migration time. This feature makes it much easier for us, as a business partner, to convince the customer that it can be done in a very short time, without any concerns about losing data or something breaking. That's one of the main features, and it works. It helps me a lot when talking with potential customers who are stuck with all this data and, when they think of moving on to new systems, the first thing that bothers them is how to migrate all this information to a new system. The other stuff that everybody sells today like tiering, which IBM calls Easy Tier, and FlashCopy, they have been around for years with the other vendors as well. View full review »

The ability to create LUNs and modify them is the most valuable feature of this solution. It has a very good storage system. View full review »

Virtualization, because it abstracts hardware and allows to use other storages (old DS series) as unique storage spaces. View full review »
