Evaluator Group - IBM Storwize Family: Scaling Capabilities and Value Jan 2013

IBM has used the Storwize architecture to produce multiple storage systems across different usage segments to meet different customer needs. The ability to scale with a common underlying architecture has proven to deliver multiple benefits to IBM customers. Features developed for high-end enterprise systems now meet customer needs in other, more price conscious segments. The leverage from a common base for systems helps reduce development and support costs which are reflected in product costs for customers. The Storwize architecture also builds on Intel-based hardware, which provides continued advances with each new generation yet retains the same fundamental architecture.  Customers also benefit from a storage architecture that provides a consistent experience across multiple products and generations. The longevity of a storage system, based on an architecture with the ability to scale and investments leveraged across multiple products, reduces risks for customers with new products, allows for continued use of developed procedures, and benefits from broad support from applications and systems software. The variety of system types in the Storwize family, including enterprise storage virtualization, storage systems, and storage integrated with servers helps to address diverse customer requirements with consistent function and ease of use.
