  • Provide a high level of consistent performance with no data hot-spots using a grid-based storage device
  • Enable high-redundancy through the use of unique grid-based rebuild technology
  • Provide support for useable capacity points between 27 TB and 161 TB
  • Support up to 24 x 4Gb Fibre Channel ports for host connectivity
  • Support up to 6 x 1Gb iSCSI ports for host connectivity
  • Support up to 240 GB of total system cache

The IBM XIV Storage System is comprised of the hardware Machine type 2810 and Model A14 and the requisite software 5639-XXA.

The hardware Model A14 is designed to support enterprise-class storage requirements for FCP and iSCSI capable hosts.

The XIV Storage System Model A14 is available in configurations with six, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, or fifteen modules.

All initial configurations are shipped with a 42U industry standard rack. This rack includes all required UPS, power and internal connectivity cables needed for initial installation and potential field module upgrades.

The initial configuration is field-upgradeable with one or more additional data modules, up to the maximum of fifteen total interface and data modules.

The following tables depict the configurations supported on the XIV System Model A14:

A patch panel is integrated into the IBM XIV Storage System for ease of customer connectivity. Please be aware that the optical cables that connect the patch panel to the rest of the device are 50 micron optical cables. Ideally, the cables that connect to this patch panel should also be 50 micron optical cables. Refer to the Installation and Planning Guide for more information.

You must also order the requisite IBM XIV Storage System Software for each module in the rack. Refer to the 5639-XXA for details on IBM XIV Storage System Software functionality.

A Capacity on demand ordering option is also available. This configuration will consist of six CoD Interface Modules and three CoD Data Modules. In addition, you must order a minimum of four activation features.

All CoD increments must be activated within a twelve-month period from the date of installation; all such activation is permanent.

Contact your IBM representative to obtain additional information regarding CoD offering contracts, terms and conditions.

Product Positioning

The IBM XIV Storage System (2810-A14) provides the hardware platform required for the IBM XIV Storage System Software. The combination of hardware and software enables a revolutionary grid-based architecture designed to provide an exceptionally easy to use, high performance, scalable, reliable enterprise disk system for UNIX, Linux, Windows, and other supported distributed open server platforms. It can provide a platform to address the need for reducing complexity while keeping pace with midrange to high-end disk capacity demands. This system is a great addition to the IBM disk storage family, core products in the IBM Information Infrastructure. It is a good fit for clients who want to be able to grow capacity without managing multiple tiers of storage to increase performance and reduce cost. These users also may want to improve their backup capabilities, as well as reduce the task load on storage administrators. The XIV system is especially well suited as a consolidated utility storage for fast growing, dynamic mixed and emerging workloads.

 0303    CoD Special Bid 2               #1120
 

Each feature identifies whether a machine is participating in the XIV Capacity on Demand (Standby CoD) offering. They are for administrative purposes only.

Feature #0301, #0302, or #0303, is required on machines participating in the XIV Standby CoD offering. The XIV CoD offering participation is defined as the presence of the feature #1119 or #1120 (4.7 TB CoD Activation) on the base unit model A14.

  • Feature #0301 is the default indicator and indicates participation under standard offering terms and conditions. This feature is designated as "manual schedule"; as such, orders with this feature will not be scheduled (accepted) until confirmation is received that the XIV Standby CoD agreements have been signed by the client.
  • Feature #0302 and #0303 are used on an exception basis only. These features are designated as "manual schedule"; as such, orders with these features will not be scheduled (accepted) until geography brand management approval is obtained and confirmation is received that the XIV Standby CoD agreements have been signed by the client.

One of the following agreements must be signed by the client prior to the acquisition of their first machine configured with XIV CoD features:

  • For clients who have a signed IBM Customer Agreement (or equivalent):
    • IBM Customer Agreement, Attachment for XIV Standby Capacity on Demand (U.S., form number Z125-8096), and
    • IBM Supplement for XIV Standby Capacity on Demand (U.S., form number Z125-8097)

    • IBM Agreement for XIV Standby Capacity on Demand (U.S., form number Z125-8098), and
    • IBM Supplement for XIV Standby Capacity on Demand (U.S., form number Z125-8097)

Once a client has executed either set of the above agreements, each subsequent order for any feature #1119 or #1120 requires only that the customer signed an additional IBM Supplement for XIV Standby Capacity on Demand.

When a machine exits the XIV Standby CoD offering, feature #0301, #0302, or #0303 must be removed from the order. A machine exits the XIV Standby CoD offering when all activation features have been ordered in a nine or fifteen module COD configuration.
