Such systems also can support a large-scale data volume created by Cloud and analysis applications with many things to handle, including powerful hardware platforms.
They are designed to provide high efficiency, usability and credibility for organizations of all sizes.

Data Virtualization

The Storwize V7000 Unified and Storwize V7000 models don't affect applications when physical storage is changed using data virtualization techniques.
The Storwize V7000 Unified and Storwize V7000 models expand data virtualization to other disk systems.
In virtualization, data of disk systems becomes part of the Storwize system and the data can be managed in the same way as done in internal drives.
Data of outside disk systems have all of usability functions, from the abundant Storwize functions, to those for high-quality cloning, high-performance thin provisioning, encryption, real-time compression and IBM Easy Tier®. Managers' productivity improves, storage utilization increases and the existing storage investment values are expanded through materializing outside storages,
Data migration is one of the most general reasons of predetermined system suspension. Data virtualization supports data to be moved from the existing storage to a new system, or among arrays, and maintains accesses to data at the same time.
This function can be used to replace the existing storage with a new storage, to execute load balancing or to move data from a disk drive to a flash drive at layered storage infrastructure.
Efficiency and business values can be improved through virtualizing data.
Seamless migration reduces time for value creation from several weeks or months to several days, minimizes migration suspension time and gets rid of costs for additional migration tools. Seamless migration also helps companies be free from fines about the prolonged lease period and additional repairing and maintenance costs. In consequence, companies can actually save costs. Users of the Storwize V7000 model have reported that application availability improved by 29%.

Real-time Compression

IBM Real-time Compression was designed to store data twice as many at the actual disk space through compressing data to up to 80%.
Unlike other approaches related to compression, Real-time Compression is good for using with basic active data like productivity database and electronic mailing systems and greatly increases the scope of support data taking advantages of compression.
Real-time Compression begins to work immediately after data is recorded in a disk, so there is no wasted space for storing uncompressed data waiting for treatment.
Moreover, Real-time Compression using hardware acceleration transfers economical efficiency of data storages.
Real-time Compression saves purchase costs (the number of necessary hardware decreases) and rack space and reduces power and cooling expenses during the system life.
Combined with outside data virtualization, Real-time Compression extends the life span of the existing systems greatly increasing the available capacity.

High-Performance Expandable Platform 

The Storwize V7000 Unified and Storwize V7000 models were established on new hardware platforms and designed to provide high performance and notably improved economical efficiency of data.
Control enclosures containing dual controllers are equipped with eight core 1.9 GHz Intel Xeon processors of 32 GB or 64 GB cache, respectively.
Each controller includes a hardware compression accelerator based on Intel QuickAssist technology using a usable assistant accelerator.
Various host interface options include 16 Gbps and 8 Gbps fiber channels, 1 Gbps iSCSI, 10 Gbps iSCSI or FCoE (Fiber Channel over Ethernet).
These new powerful platforms provides the processing capacity up to twice as much as previous systems.
Each control enclosure makes expansion with up to 504 drives or supports up to 20 installed expansion enclosures using high-performance 12 Gbps SASs whose capacity is about 2 PB.
A control enclosure supports up to 24 2.5-inch drives and two expansion enclosure models support up to 24 2.5-inch or 12 3.5-inch drives.
The clustered system, a single storage system with up to four control enclosures, 64 processor cores and up to 512 GB caches, provides horizontal expansion of performance and the capacity using related operating expansion enclosures and supports up to 1,056 drives and the total capacity of 7.87 PB.


IBM Spectrum Virtualize software of the Storwize V7000 Unified and Storwize V7000 models were designed to provide high-level efficiency, reforms economical efficiency of data and reduces costs for Cloud, analysis tools, virtual servers and other enterprise-class arrangement.
As this solution provides functions necessary in such complicated environment, companies don't have to worry about choosing one of performance and efficiency.
The existing approach to compression was less activated and used for less sensitive data. In addition, advantages and usability of compressed data were limited.
To limit ways and time for data use in today's business environment can lead to higher costs.
IBM Real-time Compression using hardware acceleration provides better performance about compressed data than performance which the existing systems provide to uncompressed data through supporting Storwize V7000 Unified and Storwize V7000, and actually assists such methods for all types of data.
Automatic storage tiering using IBM Easy Tier promotes effective use of various types of flash storages or disk storages improving performance with low costs. Easy Tier moves relevant data to faster storages, such as flash, through automatically distinguishing more active data. In this way, companies can use flash storages using data as much as possible and enjoy advantages to the fullest extent even at the small flash storage capacity. Easy Tier provides up to three times improved performance consuming just 5% of the flash storage capacity, in fact.

High Availability 

Increasingly more customers place servers virtualized using different technology like IBM PowerVM®, VMware and high-availability construction.
Such construction provides high availability and attractive options for load balancing.
Functions of the IBM HyperSwap® model supports a single Storwize V7000 system supporting servers at two data centers.
With this construction, solutions can connect data at all servers of both data centers at the same time.
Combined with server data mobility functions like VMware vMotion or PowerVM Live Partition Mobility, this construction supports virtualization system mobility between seamless storages and two data centers, which is possible at the long distance of up to 300km (186 miles).
Dispersion RAID technology disperses data throughout many used physical drives at the same time and provides data availability through shortening reestablishment time.
Such technology can improve performance through making data be read and written at more drives about given I/O.

Easy Use

The Storwize V7000 Unified and Storwize V7000 models adopting IBM Spectrum Virtualize software are very easy to use from the earlier stage.
The intuitive management interface helps managers easily manage block and file data at same systems.
According to studies, it takes about half of time than that taken for managing systems of rival companies
IBM Spectrum Control™ based on the IBM Tivoli® Storage Productivity Center can provide companies with end-to-end views about Storwize V7000 Unified, Storwize V7000 and storage conditions of surrounding storage infrastructure, long-term performance analysis tools and capacity data.
Moreover, the IBM Spectrum Virtualize technology containing IP cloning and active file management using Real-time Compression, Easy Tier, Bridgeworks SANrockIT technology automatically works and there are almost no or no needs to define users.
SANrockIT automatically optimizes network use without manual operation using AI technology.
Integrated with Storwize V7000 Unified and Storwize V7000, there are no separate appliances to manage.
As SANrockIT is not sensitive for data types, it can provide consistent advantages even if workloads are changed.
