IBM FlashSystem 810 and IBM FlashSystem 710




IBM FlashSystem™ 810 and IBM FlashSystem 710 are designed to speed up the performance of critical enterprise applications, including data warehousing and OLAP applications, content delivery networks, video rendering and editing software, and 3D modeling and simulation applications. These systems deliver extreme performance per gigabyte so organizations can quickly uncover business insights from IBM DB2®, Oracle and other database applications. In addition, FlashSystem 810 and FlashSystem 710 eliminate storage bottlenecks with MicroLatency that enables faster decision making.

Accelerate enterprise applications with extreme-performance flash storage.

  • Gain enterprise-class reliability with IBM® Variable Stripe RAID™ technology—without sacrificing performance or usable capacity
  • Reduce time to decisions with faster applications, including data warehouses and online analytical processing (OLAP) databases
  • Improve IT efficiency with IBM MicroLatency™, high bandwidth and extreme input/output operations per second (IOPS) performance in a small footprint
  • Realize macro efficiencies with green storage designed for fast data access at low wattage
  • Extract immediate value from your investment with quick time to deployment
  • Leverage single-level cell (SLC) or enterprise multi-level cell (eMLC) flash media technologies
  • Enhance the end-user experience with MicroLatency and lower application response times
  • Virtualize storage through integration with IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller
  • Flash technology is rapidly defining a new business landscape, where organizations can perform advanced data analytics faster than ever to gain a competitive advantage. IBM flash storage offerings provide extreme IOPS and low-latency performance to turbocharge these new IT infrastructures. When compared to equivalent disk systems, IBM flash storage solutions deliver 6.7 times more capacity in a single rack, 19 times more cost efficiency in dollars/per IOPS, and are 115 times more energy efficient.
