Overview
Bottom rule

IBM System Storage N3150 consists of single-node (Model A15) and dual-node (Model A25) (active-active) base units. Both models are designed to provide fast data access, simultaneous multiprotocol support, expandability, upgradability, and low maintenance.

Model 2857-A15

N3150 Model A15 is designed to provide a single-node storage controller with HTTP, Common Internet File System (CIFS), Network File System (NFS), and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) support via optional features. The N3150 Model A15 is a 2U storage controller that must be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack. Model A15 can be upgraded to a Model A25, however, this is a disruptive upgrade.

Model 2857-A25

N3150 Model A25 is designed to provide identical functions as the single-node Model A15, but with the addition of a second processor control module (PCM) and the Clustered Failover (CFO) licensed function. Model A25 consists of two PCMs that are designed to provide failover and failback function, helping improve overall availability. Model A25 is a 2U rack-mountable storage controller.

Both IBM System Storage N3150 models are designed to provide:

N3150 storage controllers support the EXN3000 SAS/SATA storage expansion unit and the high-density EXN3500 SAS storage expansion unit.

These N series models are designed to provide fast data access, simultaneous multiprotocol support, expandability, upgradability, and low maintenance. Additional functions, such as snapshot, mirroring, and business continuance capability, are available through optional licensed features.

N3150 storage controllers are designed to interoperate with products capable of data transmission in the industry-standard iSCSI, CIFS, and NFS protocols. These include IBM System p® , IBM System i® (NFS only), IBM System x® , and IBM System z® (NFS only) servers.

Model A15 is designed to provide a single-node storage controller with iSCSI, NFS, and CIFS support via optional features. This model is a 2U rack-mountable storage controller.

Model A15 includes:

Model A15 may be upgraded to a Model A25, however, this is a disruptive upgrade.

Model A25 is designed to provide identical functions as the N3150 Model A15, but with the addition of a second PCM and the CFO licensed function. Model A25 also supports a maximum of 60 drives. The two PCMs are designed to provide failover and failback functions, helping improve overall availability. Model A25 is a 2U rack-mountable storage controller.

Model A25 includes:

N3150 storage controllers can attach a maximum of two EXN3000 SAS/SATA or EXN3500 SAS storage expansion units.

The EXN3000 storage expansion unit is a 4U rack-mountable disk enclosure containing 5, up to a maximum of 24, SAS or SATA disk drives. The supported disk drives are:

The EXN3500 storage expansion unit is a 2U rack-mountable disk enclosure containing 5, up to a maximum of 24, 2.5-inch, small form factor (SFF) SATA disk drives. The supported disk drives are:

The maximum raw storage capacity of the N3150 system is determined by the maximum number of disk drives supported and a maximum physical storage limit (in TB). Both limits must be honored.

Warranty period

Three years

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature which replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature is the same as the machine in which it is installed.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically via an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM . You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information.

CRU Service

IBM provides replacement CRUs to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM upon your request. CRUs are designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU.

Tier 1 (mandatory) CRU

Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation.

Tier 2 (optional) CRU

You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge.

Based upon availability, CRUs will be shipped for next business day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies, in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU, whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM . When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU. You may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.
