This IBM® Redpaper® Product Guide describes the IBM Storage FlashSystem® 7300 solution, which is a next-generation IBM Storage FlashSystem control enclosure. It combines the performance of flash and a Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe)-optimized architecture with the reliability and innovation of IBM FlashCore® technology and the rich feature set and high availability (HA) of IBM Storage Virtualize.
To take advantage of artificial intelligence (AI)-enhanced applications, real-time big data analytics, and cloud architectures that require higher levels of system performance and storage capacity, enterprises around the globe are rapidly moving to modernize established IT infrastructures.
However, for many organizations, staff resources, and expertise are limited, and cost-efficiency is a top priority. These organizations have important investments in existing infrastructure that they want to maximize. They need enterprise-grade solutions that optimize cost-efficiency while simplifying the pathway to modernization.
IBM Storage FlashSystem 7300 is designed specifically for these requirements and use cases. It also delivers a cyber resilience without compromising application performance.
IBM Storage FlashSystem 7300 provides a rich set of software-defined storage (SDS) features that are delivered by IBM Storage Virtualize, including the following examples:
This Redpaper applies to IBM Storage Virtualize V8.6.
