The solution can be used for backing up data, such as in databases and local clouds.

I am an IBM reseller and I sell this solution to our clients. I have a lot of knowledge of this solution. Our clients use this solution for database performance.

We were using the solution for storing data. Recently we were having problems not being able to do a flash when we attempted. We will need to relay to IBM the challenges with taking the flash. Once this problem is resolved, we can do a better comparison with other solutions.

We are living in IBM FlashSystem. We have more than eight flash storage devices deployed in our environment for different kinds of workloads such as applications, core systems, core banking applications, et cetera.

We use it for data reduction technology. We are using this solution on-premises, and we are also providing services to customers.

The solution is like a storage device that is for our old organized cloud infrastructure. We are using it as storage for all our databases, for the data we are preparing for in developing our own applications, or for running some infrastructure services.

It is block storage. We basically use it for the storage units.

We are solution providers. We deploy solutions around VMware. Typically we deploy data protection, and disaster recovery of workloads in the cloud, and on-premises. If I need to know about a platform or the base platform on which I'm working, I try to read up on their model. We are also storage integrators and solution providers. The primary use case is for storage, enterprise workloads, and databases.

We use the on-prem deployment model. Our primary use case for this solution is for backup for the solutions. We sell this solution to customers.

We have a clustered network using an IBM 3650 for our server. Our environment is entirely in-house, and we are not currently running anything in the cloud. We are planning to migrate from our current system, as the equipment is getting old.

The product is used as a central storage system. All live and test environment data, except for periodic data backups and centralized log management system data, is stored on the IBM Flash system.

Storage virtualization. Two Storwize V7000 systems in a cluster configuration serve about 500 servers (physical and virtual).

We usually use Storwize for SMB customers, when they need small but reliable storage and fast response times. The performance is great.
