IBM Storwize V7000 expected to improve productivity and reduce costs for SMBs
Agilysys, an IT service provider, has added IBM Storwize V7000 to its storage portfolio.
According to the company, IBM Storwize is a midrange disk system designed for rapid deployment without additional resources.
The move is expected to provide clients of the company with a consolidated storage offering that can also maintain large amounts of data without increasing storage footprint and costs.
The company claims IBM Storwize improves decision-making by scanning sizeable amounts of historical data from multiple sources without adding storage equipment.
The new enhancements also enable non-disruptive migration of data from existing storage, thereby simplifying implementation and minimising disruption to users. They would also enable the virtualisation and reuse of existing disk systems, which supports greater potential return on investment, said the company.
The company claims IBM Storwize V7000 can assist small and midsize organisations challenged by productivity constraints and cost overruns.
Agilysys sales vice president Lou Sciacchetano said Storwize V7000 is another innovative offering from IBM, a unique storage product in the industry for its ability to compress primary data in real-time while maintaining performance.
"Our users are excited, and early benchmark results are exceptional. I am confident the adoption rate for the SV7000 will exceed all previous IBM storage offerings," Sciacchetano said.
Agilysys senior solution architect Michael Schroll said the integration of proven enterprise technology into the SV7000 midrange storage array will be an advantage to their users.
"The management simplicity created by the enhanced GUI will enable quick deployment of storage in today’s fast-paced environment," Schroll added.
