IBM XIV Gen3 / Data storage solution

IBM XIV Gen3

IBM XIV Gen3

Discipline: Product

As the planet becomes more instrumented, interconnected and intelligent, businesses are transforming their IT organizations to leverage large amounts of data. IBM XIV Gen3 is an easy-to-use storage system designed to eliminate the complexity of data management. The outer casing illustrates the concept of simplicity with a form that has been reduced to its most basic elements. The cover base efficiently delivers cold air to high-performing components while an offset acoustical plane quiets system noise. Inside, 180 disk drives are stacked in a clean array, designed to be quickly and intuitively replaced without interrupting workloads.
