Description
Bottom rule

IBM System Storage 7226 Multi-Media Enclosure has two bays designed to accommodate up to two tape drives, two RDX removable HDD docking stations, or four DVD-RAM drives. The 7226 attaches to most IBM POWER6 and POWER7 servers, to the POWER7 SDMC, to IBM PureFlex server Models x240, p260, and p460, and to IBM BladeCenter models PS701, PS702, PS703, and PS704.

The initial order for the 7226 Multi-Media Enclosure must include at least one of the following drive features.

RDX 3.0 Removable Disk Drive Docking Station (feature number EU03)

The RDX 3.0 removable disk drive docking station accommodates a 320 GB, 500 GB, 1.0 TB, or 1.5 TB removable disk drive or data cartridge. A USB 3.0 device provides data transfer rates up to 100 MB/sec. The docking station holds one removable disk cartridge at a time. The removable disk cartridge and docking station backs up information similar to tape drives. Any industry standard RDX removable disk drive formatted for the attaching operating system may be installed in the RDX docking station. The RDX removable disk docking station feature includes a half-high drive latch, a USB interface assembly, and an external USB cable. A docking station with an RDX removable disk drive or data cartridge can be an excellent alternative to DAT160 and LTO tape drives and tape cartridges. RDX cartridges are built to withstand a fall from nearly one meter and are durable, small, and may be used as a backup save/restore device. RDX cartridges also provide the same easy expandability as tape. When you reach capacity with one removable disk cartridge, insert in a new one of any available capacity. There is no need to buy additional hardware.

RDX removable drive cartridges can also be an alternative to DVD disks. Archiving capacities greater than 10 GB require multiple DVD disks which means more handling and shelf space are needed. A single 500 GB RDX drive cartridge, for example, can store more data than 50 standard DVDs.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, and AIX 7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM , which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type "smitty esa_main", and select "Configure Electronic Service Agent ." In addition, ESA now includes a powerful Web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent , refer to

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM . The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM . The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM .

More accurate reporting: Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM , problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Support Web site at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent . Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledge base. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.
