Product Details

IBM FlashSystem™ 840 is data center-optimized to strategically harness the value of stored data. By providing extreme performance for the most demanding applications, including online-transaction processing and analytics databases, virtual desktop infrastructures, technical-computing applications, and cloud environments, FlashSystem 840 delivers a competitive advantage for today’s organizations. The IBM system reduces response times with MicroLatency that is, less than 135 microsecond access times. It is this consistent low latency that enables FlashSystem to deliver application performance improvements.

Easy to deploy and manage, FlashSystem 840 delivers savings across the entire organization, from improved productivity of IT staff to energy efficiency within the data center. The efficiency benefits of FlashSystem 840 are a result of the high performance, high density, and low power consumption of the system’s architecture. FlashSystem 840 is hardware accelerated, using energy-efficient IBM PowerPC® processors, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and large arrays of high density enterprise multi-level cell (eMLC) flash.

FlashSystem 840 can scale usable capacity from as low as 2 TB to as much as 48 TB in its compact 2U enclosure. Many granular capacity points are possible due to the three choices in MicroLatency flash module capacity: 1 TB, 2 TB and 4 TB. Capacity is field upgradeable so IT personnel can expand capacity to support changing needs with minimal disruption to operations. FlashSystem 840 supports all industry-standard interfaces including 4/8/16 Gb Fibre Channel, 40 Gb InfiniBand, 10 Gb iSCSI and 10 Gb Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE).
