Data storage capacity and performance requirements are increasing for businesses of all sizes. While conventional 15,000 rpm hard disk drives (HDDs) can meet capacity and performance requirements, hybrid HDDs offer accelerated performance by using integrated NAND flash to cache data. In certain environments, such as those with high random read and high data locality (hot data), hybrid drives can provide improved performance over conventional HDDs.

Overview

New HDDs and flash hybrid HDDs add high-capacity and high-performance offerings to the System x® and BladeCenter® family:

Note: The new hybrid drives are hard disk drives that incorporate and leverage NAND flash to accelerate performance.

The amount of information that is gathered and stored by businesses continues to grow exponentially. In addition to the demand for increased storage, there are increasing requirements to quickly and effectively store and access data. Conventional hard disk drives and solid-state storage technology are utilized to achieve specific objectives within the data center. Conventional hard disk drives continue to be the most common storage media offering high density and basic performance in a cost effective solution. Solid-state storage solutions enable businesses to achieve optimal input/output (IO) through variable read/write capabilities for performance intensive applications and workloads.

IBM is now offering a new technology: hybrid drives. These drives combine a cache of NAND flash and conventional media to accelerate hard disk drive performance, enabling higher IO performance while leveraging the capacity and cost of spinning media for primary storage. These new 2.5-inch G2HS and G2SS hybrid drives are the next generation of hybrid drives from IBM .

As the newest additions to the IBM System x family of 2.5-inch SAS drives, the 600 GB 15,000 rpm 6 Gbps SAS 2.5-inch HDDs and 300 GB and 600 GB 6 Gbps SAS 2.5-inch hybrid HDDs offer the highest performance options and provide a wider selection of choices to satisfy a wide range of applications. These new drives are positioned at the top of the IBM SAS line.

The new 600 GB 15,000 rpm 6 Gbps SAS 2.5-inch HDDs and 300 GB and 600 GB 6 Gbps SAS 2.5-inch hybrid HDDs are available in hot-swap (G2HS) and simple-swap (G2SS) versions.

Key features and benefits include:

You can increase your storage and data management effectiveness when you install these new high-performance SAS HDDs in your IBM System x configurations.

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 website 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 knowledgebase. 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.
