IBM Storwize V5000



The enterprise data storage marketplace is changing at a rapid pace. Organizations of all sizes are experiencing new business and IT operational challenges. Businesses now need greater data collaboration, agility and cost efficiency to stay ahead of the competition. Today, data is more important than ever for making highly informed decisions in real time. Security teams need data to recognize and prevent fraud before it happens. Call centers need data to help accelerate customer service. Most important, top executives need data to develop strategic insights for battling the competition.

With the rise of new applications that demand the integration of big-data analytics, mobility and social platforms, organizations require additional storage capacity, performance, advanced functionality and flexibility. IT must deliver more services faster and more efficiently, enable real-time insight and support more customer interaction. The right infrastructure allows clients to share information, secure transactions and drive real-time insights.
