IBM FlashSystem Value Tool is Latest ROI Calculator Created by Vertex
IBM wanted to demonstrate to their customers the cost-competitiveness and economic value of their FlashSystem products, especially when compared to traditional storage systems, including high performance disk systems utilizing 15k RPM drives. IBM’s custom hardware architecture, incorporating field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) allows the system to omit traditional server-based array controllers and lead to better performance, reliability, and efficiency.
Enterprise Strategy Group of Milford, MA, once again partnered with Vertex to create an interactive application for IBM’s customers to see this ROI for themselves based on their own infrastructure and usage needs. By entering a simple set of inputs that describe their workloads and use cases, IBM customers can see the financial impact of utilizing IBM’s FlashSystem vs. traditional storage.
