Description

Top rule

IBM FlashSystem A9000 and A9000R software version 12.3.2 introduces VLAN support for iSCSI environments.

VLAN (IEEE 802.1Q) enables organizations to significantly reduce physical network capital and operational expenditure by operating multiple virtual networks over a single physical network. Dynamically pooling a high-density FlashSystem A9000 or A9000R among multiple virtual networks maximizes its capacity and performance utilization. For example, private cloud and managed service provider environments may use VLANs to provision a private virtual network per tenant, yet securely 1 share FlashSystem A9000/R systems among the tenants. FlashSystem A9000 and A9000R VLAN support applies to the data iSCSI ports for hosts and replication, as well as management ports and other Ethernet ports. VLAN support capabilities include VLAN tagging and port trunking.

1 FlashSystem A9000 and A9000R domains feature already supports secure multitenancy.

IBM FlashSystem A9000/A9000R continues to deliver a rich set of enterprise-level capabilities:

  • Harness the performance of IBM FlashCore® technology with highly parallel architecture and achieve consistent performance with automatic load balancing
  • Enable capacity-optimized configurations using 18 TB 3DTLC IBM FlashCore modules (models 425 and U25)
  • Increase data protection and system availability with enterprise-grade high availability, HyperSwap® active-active storage clustering across systems and data centers, and multisite high-availability and disaster recovery.
  • Optimize storage economics with pattern removal, deduplication, and compression
  • Encrypt data at rest with server-based or local key management
  • Support multitenant, mixed workload clouds with enterprise-grade high availability, security, and quality of service features that prevent "noisy neighbors" in mixed-workload environments
  • Deliver consistent performance and exceed service-level agreements for data-intensive workloads
  • Integrate easily with VMware, OpenStack, Linux®, and Microsoft™ platforms, and most infrastructures
  • Simplify storage administration with an innovative, new user interface

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

IBM FlashSystem A9000/A9000R software is capable, when used in accordance with IBM®'s associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
