IBM Storwize V3700

Easy-to-use, affordable modular disk storage with advanced capabilities

IBM Storwize V3700

IBM Storwize® V3700 is an entry level disk storage system designed with sophisticated capabilities unusual for a system of this class. It offers efficiency and flexibility through built-in thin provisioning and non-disruptive migration of data from existing storage. Built upon the innovative technology in the Storwize family, Storwize V3700 addresses block storage requirements of small and midsize organizations at an affordable price.

Data has become the new currency of business, their most critical asset. But organizations often spend too much money and time managing where their data is stored. The average firm purchases 24 percent more storage every year, but uses less than half of the capacity it already has.

The right infrastructure allows clients to shift spending and invest in projects that improve business results. The infrastructure must ensure the most value from data at the least cost with the least effort and the greatest flexibility.

Building an effective infrastructure starts with software-defined storage, which frees data from the physical storage and provides better access to applications. Software-defined storage helps make an infrastructure simple, easy to manage and more responsive to changing business needs. IBM Storwize® V3700, the entry-level system in the IBM Storwize family, is an efficient, easy-to-use system designed to complement virtual server environments while delivering flexibility and innovative storage functions.




Chris K's Quick Tip

Even though it has a “bargain” price tag, the Storwize V3700 still comes with a one-way data migration feature (functionally the same as the SAN Volume Controller) that will let you easily migrate storage from other SAN-attached storage subsystems without downtime.
