  • Feature Benefits
    Graphical user interface (GUI)
    • Provides easy-to-use data management designed with point-and-click system management capabilities
    IBM Storage mobile dashboard
    • Provides basic monitoring capabilities to securely check the health and performance of Storwize family systems
    Thin provisioning
    • Supports business applications that need to grow dynamically, while consuming only the space actually used
    IBM Easy Tier
    • Provides automatic migration of frequently accessed data elements to high-performing flash storage
    Real-time Compression*
    • Improves efficiency by storing up to five times as much active primary data in the same physical disk space;† by significantly reducing storage requirements, you can use the improved efficiency to reduce storage costs, or achieve a combination of greater capacity and reduced costs
    Unified storage systems‡
    • Combines block and file storage requirements into a single system for simplicity and efficiency
    • Provides a single user interface for managing both block and file storage, to streamline administration
    Metro Mirror and Global Mirror
    • Allows synchronous or asynchronous data replication between any Storwize family systems for maximum flexibility
    • Helps optimize use of network bandwidth with integrated Bridgeworks SANSlide technology to reduce network costs or speed replication cycles, improving the accuracy of remote data
    Dynamic migration
    • Provides efficiency and business value through a nondisruptive migration function
    Storage virtualization§
    • Virtualize existing IBM and non-IBM storage to make it part of a Storwize family system, where it inherits the advantages of the Storwize systems
    IBM Flex System Manager
    • With IBM PureFlex Systems, provides management integration of physical and virtual compute, storage, and networking resources from a single vantage point
