I have been around IBM's Power Systems since 2001 when IBM unified the RS/6000 and the AS/400 onto POWER4 and I have seen the Power platform continue to evolve.

IBM V5000 vs. EMC VNX2… the TamGroup Perspective

September and October 2013 have seen major announcements from EMC and IBM respectively in the mid-market storage space. Where IBM has announced major extensions to their industry-leading technology of Storwize family products, EMC announced a warmed-over refresh of their VNX series, the VNX2.

The new IBM V5000 provides a mid-market Storwize platform for customers looking for a more cost-effective SAN than the V7000. The V5000 utilizes the same virtualized storage platform that is the hallmark of the IBM Storwize family but only supports a maximum of 168 drives per controller/336 per cluster.  With standard support for 1GB/10 Gb iSCSI, 6Gb SAS, 8GB FC and 10Gb FCoE, it provides flexible connectivity for most environments in a small 2U rack footprint.  The V5000 can virtualize and seamlessly migrate storage from other SAN platforms making transitions from competitive products easy and cost effective.  The inclusion of SANSlide compression over TCP/IP in the optional remote replication feature means DR implementations will use less bandwidth than ever before.
