International Business Machines Corporation Unveils Next Generation Flash Storage Solutions

International Business Machines Corporation announced two new all-flash enterprise storage solutions that provide performance and efficiency, along with outstanding reliability to help lower costs and accelerate data-intensive applications and infrastructures. The new solutions can provide customers real-time analytical insights with up to 50 times better performance than traditional enterprise storage, and up to four times better capacity in less rack space than EMC XtremIO flash technology. Enterprises around the globe face the rising challenges posed by escalating data volumes, velocity, and variety. Flash - the memory technology used in everything from mobile phones to enterprise storage - is being used to help businesses address these challenges and transform the flood of information into tangible value and business insight. IBM FlashSystem® storage can enable organizations to address new IT challenges while continuing to accelerate application performance and helping lower IT infrastructure cost and complexity. IBM FlashSystem V9000 offers the advantages of software-defined storage at the speed of flash. By deploying FlashSystem V9000, customers can consolidate their existing storage systems under one management domain, and implement virtualization and storage services throughout. Meanwhile, IBM FlashSystem 900 will continue providing extreme performance, enterprise reliability, and macro efficiency that can be deployed in as little as two hours, rather than the days required for conventional systems. At the heart of these all-flash storage arrays lies IBM FlashCore technology, the suite of innovations and capabilities that can enable FlashSystem to help deliver better performance than enterprise disk systems, making it flexible as well as easy to deploy across entire IT ecosystems. These technology enhancements can translate into tangible benefits for customers that want to build cost-effective cloud architectures, gain quick insight from analytics, engage with mobile customers at every opportunity, and help detect and prevent cyber fraud and data security threats in real time. FlashSystem V9000 and FlashSystem 900 take enterprise storage to the next level, by helping to enable businesses such as Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC) unleash the power of big data, achieve real-time business insights, make better decisions, and gain competitive advantage. For more than two years, CCBCC has been deploying IBM FlashSystem storage to address the mounting volumes of data challenging the company's ability to keep Coke products on store shelves. Leveraging FlashSystem technology, CCBCC was able to go from processing 100,000 data points to 3.5 million data points each day. As a result, the company improved their demand forecasting by narrowing the focus from warehouses down to individual customers to better predict how much of which products are needed on any given day and in any particular store or vending machine. CCBCC is currently rolling out IBM's newest flash storage technology to process data even faster.

IBM Builds Out SoftLayer's Computing Capacity with Addition of New Cloud Centers in Sydney and Montreal; to Open Cloud Centers in Milan, Italy and Chennai, India

IBM announced that it continues to build out SoftLayer's computing capacity with the addition of new cloud centers in Sydney and Montreal. Both facilities are set to open within the next 30 days. Once launched, the company will have opened five SoftLayer cloud centers in less than four months, including recently established facilities in Frankfurt, Germany; Queretaro, Mexico; and Tokyo, Japan. Connected to the initial $1.2 billion investment in cloud services that the company announced in 2014, the new computing capacity broadens the company's cloud footprint in both Australia and Canada, bringing the full SoftLayer portfolio to local doorsteps. The new cloud centers are each the second of their kind to be opened in their respective countries, giving customers the option for in-country data redundancy. The company's cloud center expansion strengthens and expands SoftLayer's network, decreases latency, provides geographically diverse locations for data backups, and helps customers as they strive to comply with regulations regarding data sovereignty in many countries. Additionally, as part of the investment, the company has committed to opening cloud centers in Milan, Italy and Chennai, India before the year is out, with more sites to be announced later this year. The additional cloud centers give its Cloud customers even more locations and options for creating their ideal public, private, or hybrid cloud environments.
