Single-level storage

Where did I leave my keys?



Share |

Have you checked your coat pocket, the kitchen drawer, under the sofa cushions or maybe the table by the front door? Many people temporarily misplace their car keys. Wouldn’t it be great if they just automatically appeared on demand right when you needed them?

With IBM i single-level storage, users don’t have to worry where files or programs are stored. Memory, traditional spinning disks or new solid-state drives all appear in a contiguous address space, and objects on the system are automatically managed with a device-independent addressing mechanism. Further, since no one can predict what the next storage breakthrough might be, IBM i single-level storage also enables the system to continuously evolve in support of new technologies.
