ESG: The IBM FlashSystem 840: Technical Evolution to Deliver Business Value

Although solid-state in various forms has been a specialist storage technology since the late 1970s, it shed its "niche" moniker for good in 2008. Enterprise-ready flash-fast, not astronomically expensive, and versatile-had arrived, and its maturation allowed storage vendors to begin packaging the technology in ways that could directly improve not only their customers' IT efficiency, but also their business effectiveness.

In this whitepaper, you will learn how this high-speed storage technology has tremendous potential to support I/O-intensive and/or latency-sensitive applications. Discover how a well-chosen, well-implemented flash-based system can have positive effects such as faster response times, lower TCO, smaller data center footprint, or speedier or more frequent application updating.
