IBM® Storage Utility Offerings include the IBM FlashSystem® 900 (9843-UF3), IBM Storwize® V5030 (2078-U5A), and Storwize V7000 (2076-U7A) storage utility models that enable variable capacity usage and billing.

These models provide a fixed total capacity, with a base and variable usage subscription of that total capacity. IBM Spectrum Control™ Storage Insights is used to monitor the system capacity usage. It is used to report on capacity used beyond the base subscription capacity, referred to as variable usage. The variable capacity usage is billed on a quarterly basis. This enables customers to grow or shrink their usage, and only pay for configured capacity.

These systems are available worldwide, but there are specific client and program differences by location. Consult with your IBM Business Partner or sales person for specifics.

The base system subscription is required to be facilitated through a three-year lease. The variable usage capacity will be billed through MES system upgrades for the capacity used.

Key prerequisites

Required software

IBM Storwize V5030 and V7000 utility models require IBM Spectrum Virtualize software version 8.1, or later.

IBM Spectrum Control Storage Insights is used to monitor the system and is required for these IBM Storage Utility Offerings.

The usage data collected by Storage Insights will be used by IBM to determine the actual physical data provisioned in the system. This data will be compared to the base system capacity subscription, and any provisioned capacity beyond that base subscription will be billed per terabyte, per month, on a quarterly basis. The calculated usage is based on the average use over a given month. In a highly variable environment, such as managed or cloud service providers, this enables the system to be utilized only as much as is necessary during any given month. Capacity usage may increase or decrease, and will be billed accordingly.

For a comprehensive list of supported environments, devices, and configurations, go to the IBM System Storage® Interoperation Center website.

Description

Top rule

IBM Storage Utility Offering models are provided for customers who can benefit from a variable capacity system, where billing is based on actually provisioned space above the base. The base subscription is covered by a three-year lease that entitles the customer to utilize the base capacity at no additional cost. If storage needs increase beyond the base capacity, usage is billed based on the average daily provisioned capacity per terabyte, per month, on a quarterly basis.

Example:

A customer has a V5030 utility model with 2 TB nearline disks, for a total system capacity of 48 TB. The base subscription for such a system is 16.8 TB. During the months where the average daily usage is below 16.8 TB, there is no additional billing.

The system will monitor daily provisioned capacity and will average those daily usage rates over the month term. The result is the average daily usage for the month.

If a customer uses 25 TB, 42.6 TB, and 22.2 TB in three consecutive months, Storage Insights will calculate the overage as follows (rounding to the nearest terabyte):

Avgerage daily Base Overage To be billed
25 16.8 8.2 8 TB
42.6 16.8 25.8 26 TB
22.2 16.8 5.4 5 TB

The capacity billed at the end of the quarter will be a total of 39 TB-months in this example.

Disk expansions (2076-24F for the V7000 and 2078-24F for the V5030) may be ordered with the system at the initial purchase, but may not be added through MES. The expansions must have like-type and capacity drives, and must be fully populated. For example, on a V7000 utility model with twenty-four 7.68 TB flash drives in the controller, a 2076-24F with twenty-four 7.68 TB drives may be configured with the initial system. Expansion drawers do not apply to FlashSystem 900 (9843-UF3). V5030 and V7000 utility model systems support up to 760 drives in the system.

The usage data collected by Storage Insights will be used by IBM to determine the actual physical data provisioned in the system. This data will be compared to the base system capacity subscription, and any provisioned capacity beyond that base subscription will be billed per terabyte, per month, on a quarterly basis. The calculated usage is based on the average use over a given month. In a highly variable environment, such as managed or cloud service providers, this enables the system to be utilized only as much as is necessary during any given month. Usage may increase or decrease, and will be billed accordingly. Provisioned capacity is considered capacity that is reserved by the system. In thick-provisioned environments (available on FlashSystem 900 and Storwize), this will be the capacity that is allocated to a host whether it has data written or not. For thin-provisioned environments (available on the Storwize), this will be the data that is actually written and used. This is because of the different ways in which thick and thin provisioning utilize disk space.
