IBM PHILIPPINES and Macrologic Diversified Technologies Inc. on Wednesday teamed up to introduce IBM’s reliable and competitive product lines as well as its innovative IT solutions that are new in the market.

IBM Philippines Client Technical Special Edward Navarro shared that among IBM’s well-acclaimed product is its IBM Systems Storage portfolio which includes disk, flash, tape, NAS storage products, storage software, and services.

“IBM storage solutions provide the speed and performance of ready data access with the agility and efficiency of hybrid cloud and software-defined storage. By connecting data across any architecture, storage from IBM delivers deeper insights faster, giving you the edge to outthink and outperform your competition and win in the cognitive era,” he said.

He noted that products under this portfolio include the IBM Flashcore and its All-Flash solutions like the improved FlashSystem V9000, Storwize V7000 Gen2, and Storwize V5000 Gen2.

He highlighted that the Flash System V9000 is great for database and VDI workloads of small data centers as it accelerate, migrate, tier, clone, replicate, and compress existing storage up to 630K IOPS, with 57TB usable storage.

The new Storwize V7000 Gen2 storage, on the other hand, is a more powerful platform as it is twice better than its predecessor or the previous Storwize V7000.

“This is an industry first hardware which provides dedicate processing power and greater throughput for compression. It also powered by Intel QuickAssist technology,” he stressed.
