This IBM® Redpaper™ publication provides information about the best practices and performance capabilities when implementing a storage solution using IBM FlashSystem® V9000 9846-AC3 with IBM FlashSystem V9000 9846-AE3 storage enclosures. The results that are achieved and demonstrated are specific to the used configuration. However, they can be used as reference points for other configurations. There was no intention to demonstrate the best or the worst results, or minimal latency, or maximum throughput. We tried to stay closer to the configurations and workloads used by IBM clients and provide reference points for them.
