The role of the storage is:
to give/take data at the request of the application
Read
Data
Write
In consequence, the only impact storage has to the application
performance is the amount of time the processors must wait

CPU performance up 10x this last decade
Storage has grown capacity but unable to keep
up in performance
Systems are now Latency & IO bound resulting in
significant performance gap
Performance
Gap
From 1980 to 2010, CPU performance has grown 60% per year*
…and yet, disk performance has grown ~5% per year during that same period**

Variable Stripe RAID™
• Patented Variable Stripe RAID allows RAID stripe sizes to vary.
• If one die fails in a ten-chip stripe, only the failed die is bypassed, and then
data is restriped across the remaining nine chips. No system rebuild
needed!

• VSR reduces maintenance intervals caused

Two-Dimensional (2D) Flash RAID™
• 2D Flash RAID: system-level
RAID 5 protection layered on top
of module-level Variable Stripe
RAID.
• Provides maximum data
protection and minimizes
recovery times from flash
failures, without compromising
system performance or
availability.
• Rebuilds only occur if entire
flash modules fail – Variable
Stripe RAID takes care of small
flash failures.
• System-level RAID is
implemented as 10+1 RAID 5
with 4K stripes, plus 1 module
reserved as hot spare.
• System-level RAID is managed
through active-active backplane
FPGA controllers, not software.

IBM FlashSystem Positioning
SSD is NOT Flash Storage
 Flash inside a Disk Enclosure
 Technology designed for Disk, not Flash
 Data protection outside SSD
 Data Path handled by OS/Controllers outside SSD
 Performance is reduced and marginal
Common in hybrid arrays
Focus is to maintain functionality and consolidation
Focus on Tiering and Data Movement
SSD competes with all other disks’ for resources
When performance matters (which is ALWAYS), SSD is not the best

provides low latency, high
performance storage for inserver applications
BUT
Less enterprise capabilities

IBM FlashSystem Use Cases
Virtual Servers and VDI with IBM FlashSystem™
Customer Challenge - Virtualized servers and Virtual Desktop
Infrastructure (VDI) push conventional storage systems to their
performance limits. The result? Poor application response times
and a bad customer experience.
•IBM FlashSystem shared flash storage systems will
– Eliminate I/O density and hot spot issues that are
common to highly virtualized environments
– Control and mitigate ‘log on’ or ‘boot’ storm
performance issue
– Deliver storage consolidation without sacrificing
performance, thus driving a higher V:P ratios thus
increasing server utilization

IBM FlashSystem Use Cases
SAP Acceleration with IBM FlashSystem™
Customer Challenge –SAP is pushing clients to accelerate
performance by adopting the HANA in-memory database
architecture. This often leads to a significant re-architecture of the
entire SAP infrastructure, which drives high cost and a risk of
disruption in service delivery.
•IBM FlashSystem shared flash storage systems will
– Eliminate I/O bottlenecks in mission critical SAP
workloads
– Provide the lowest latency with IBM MicroLatency™
– Support a phased approach to HANA adoption by
delivering consistently higher performance for SAP BW
workloads with no re-architecture required
