100 Petabytes of wise storage

It seems like only yesterday that it was November 2010.
IBM started shipping a new product, and yet a product with an 8 year heritage:
The Storwize V7000.

It was a very clever decision, taking the mature and very popular SAN Volume Controller (SVC) and packaging it with the latest SAS enclosure technology and offering it as a midrange storage product.

Since IBM started shipping the Storwize V7000,  they have sold (up until September 2011):

  • Over 4,500 Systems, that contained…
  • Over 100 Petabytes of storage, using…
  • Over 10,000 enclosure, that were purchased by…
  • Over 2,500 customers!

You can find Storwize V7000s in every major country of the world, in every major industry, in every common environment. A phenomenal success, all achieved in less than a year.

So what does the future hold?  Watch this space… some very cool news is really close…
