FOCUS ON STORAGE

Fast and FASTER
The IBM System Storage DS8880 family meets current and future data demands

F

rom an end-user perspective, storage is "out of sight, out of mind." That's the
way it should be. But businesses need highly reliable and fast-acting storage
options to be successful.

Jim Utsler is a
senior writer for
IBM Systems
Magazine and
has been covering technology
for more than
20 years.

Recognizing this, more
organizations are taking a
second or third look at their
storage environments, realizing
that data-now coming from
multiple sources-is nearly as
valuable as any products or
services they may offer. It's how
they make previously unseen
insight and connections in, for
example, customer behavior.

IBM has long recognized this,
coming out with evermore reliable
and thoughtful storage devices
nearly since its inception. The
latest entry into this space includes
the recently announced IBM
System Storage* DS8880 family
of storage offerings, including the
DS8884 and the DS8886. IBM also
issued a statement of direction
for an all-flash model in the first

half of 2016. The performance is
expected to grow substantially
with the all high-performance
flash enclosure unit that is to
come. This new family is driven by
the IBM POWER8* processors, as
indicated by the third eight in the
family name.
"Everything we're delivering is
focused on making storage easier,
more manageable and faster to
