Micro Strategies Inc. is among the first IBM partners with technical expertise to implement and support the innovative new midrange storage management system, IBM Storwize V7000. Micro Strategies is demonstrating new applications made possible with the technology, such as disaster recovery, at its two Technology Solutions Centers in the New York Metro and mid-Atlantic regions.
The IBM Storwize V7000 system is designed to help businesses simplify the set-up and management of storage for virtual and physical server infrastructure. It can reduce storage rack space requirements by up to 67 percent, offers seamless migration support, and can be used to virtualize and reuse existing disk systems. The new IBM midrange technology is optimized for transaction processing or business analytics. It supports solid state drive (SSD) technology, making it ideal for applications that demand quick access to data and support for tiered storage environments.
"Many midsize enterprises have struggled with an inability to share storage among their physical and virtual servers, as well as the management complexity and cost associated with supporting isolated storage resources," says Anthony Bongiovanni, president of Micro Strategies. "IBM Storwize V7000 represents a breakthrough in storage simplicity for midsize businesses."
