Model abstract 9843-UF3

The IBM 9843 Model UF3 is the IBM FlashSystem 900 with a three-year warranty to be utilized in the Storage Utility Offering space. These models are physically and functionally identical to the IBM FlashSystem 9843-AE3, with the exception of target configurations and variable capacity billing. The variable capacity billing uses IBM Spectrum Control Storage Insights to monitor the system usage, allowing allocated storage usage above a base subscription rate to be billed per TB, per month. Allocated storage is identified as storage that is allocated to a specific host (and unusable to other hosts), whether data is written or not. For thin-provisioning, the data that is actually written is considered used. For thick provisioning, total allocated volume space is considered used.

Highlights

IBM FlashSystem 900 delivers accelerated performance of the most demanding enterprise-class applications and includes the following features:

  • Superior SAN throughput with up to 16 ports of 8 Gbps Fibre Channel or 8 ports of either 16 Gbps Fibre Channel or 40 Gbps QDR InfiniBand
  • Support for I/O consolidation with up to 16 ports of 10 Gbps FCoE or 10 Gbps iSCSI
  • Enterprise reliability with available RAID 5 configuration
  • Superior flexibility with usable capacity configurable from 2.4 TB to 57 TB at RAID 5
  • AES-XTS 256 data-at-rest-encryption for applications safeguarding valuable data
  • Compact, space-saving 2U form factor

IBM Storage Utility Offerings (SUO) include the IBM FlashSystem 900 (9843-UF3), Storwize V5030 (2078-U5A), and V7000 (2076-U7A) storage utility models that enable variable capacity usage and billing.

These models provide a fixed total capacity, with a base and variable usage subscription of that total capacity. IBM Spectrum Control Storage Insights is used to monitor the system capacity usage. It is used to report on capacity used beyond the base subscription capacity, referred to as variable usage). The variable capacity usage is billed on a quarterly basis. This enables customers to grow or shrink their usage, and only pay for configured capacity.

These systems are available worldwide, but there are specific client and program differences by location. Consult with your IBM Business Partner or sales person for specifics.

Description

Enterprises around the world must make fast decisions based on real-time insights. In order to accomplish this, they must unleash the power of business-critical applications such as online transaction processing and analytics databases, virtual desktop infrastructures, technical computing applications, and cloud environments. Storage solutions must also fit within tight storage budgets while addressing the need for much less power and space consumption than traditional hard disk drive systems and delivering world-class reliability and operational efficiency.

Flash storage is increasingly popular within all types of organizations, with its ability to deliver fast, reliable, and consistent access to critical data. With the new IBM FlashSystem 900 storage arrays, businesses can make faster decisions based on real-time insights and unleash the power of the most demanding applications, including online transaction processing and analytics databases, virtual desktop infrastructures, technical computing applications, and cloud environments. FlashSystem solutions can fit within the tightest storage budgets because they use much less power and space than traditional hard disk drive systems.

IBM FlashSystem 900 is a fully optimized, all-flash storage array designed to accelerate the applications that drive business. Featuring IBM FlashCore Technology, FlashSystem 900 delivers the high performance, ultra-low latency, enterprise reliability, and superior operational efficiency required for gaining a competitive advantage in today's dynamic marketplace.

Key features include:

  • The ability to support more concurrent users, improve query response times, shorten batch processes, speed backups, and lower virtual desktop costs
  • Powered by IBM FlashCore Technology for consistently high performance at lower cost
  • IBM-enhanced Micron MLC+ technology for higher storage density and improved endurance
  • The ability to scale capacity and performance incrementally to match changing requirements
  • Availability improvements with IBM Variable Stripe RAID to retain completely redundant, hot-swappable components and concurrent code loads

IBM FlashCore Technology is at the center of FlashSystem 900. Hardware-accelerated I/O means that data paths involve redundant, nonblocking crossbar backplanes, hardware-based RAID controllers separated from the system management functionality that allows concurrent code loading, and maintenance with virtually no performance impacts. Advanced flash management features for increased flash endurance and performance with decreased latency include:

  • Variable Stripe RAID technology
  • Unique IBM engineered error correction codes
  • Overprovisioning capabilities
  • Ultra-fast write buffers and hardware-based data offloads
  • Proprietary garbage collection relocation, and block picking algorithms invented by IBM

FlashSystem 900 comes with IBM-enhanced MLC+ technology, providing organizations with the next generation of efficiency, economics, and endurance. IBM MicroLatency delivers microsecond response times to accelerate the most demanding applications. The system includes fully redundant, hot-swappable components and multiple RAID layers for enterprise-class reliability, concurrent code upgrades to help maximize uptime and availability, and support for tool-less, front access to all components for easy serviceability. FlashSystem 900 maintains performance and enhances reliability without sacrificing usable capacity.

IBM FlashSystem 900, including its MicroLatency Flash Modules, is covered by up to seven years of total hardware support through the applicable warranty period plus up to six years of optional post-warranty hardware maintenance. Clients may purchase the post-warranty hardware maintenance either at the time of system purchase or up until IBM announces withdrawal from marketing or withdrawal from service. IBM also may offer warranty service upgrades that provide additional services during the warranty period. IBM reserves the right to modify or withdraw this or any other offerings at any time. Other terms, conditions and exclusions apply. Consult with your advisors about the appropriate financial treatment for this offering. Not available in all countries. Contact your sales representative for more information.

IBM Storage Utility Offering models are provided for customers who can benefit from a variable capacity system, where billing is based on actually provisioned space above the base. The base subscription is covered by a three-year lease that entitles the customer to utilize the base capacity at no additional cost. If storage needs increase beyond the base capacity, usage is billed based on the average daily provisioned capacity per terabyte, per month, on a quarterly basis.

Example:

A customer has a V5030 utility model with 2 TB nearline disks, for a total system capacity of 48 TB. The base subscription for such a system is 16.8 TB. During the months where the average daily usage is below 16.8 TB, there is no additional billing.

The system will monitor daily provisioned capacity and will average those daily usage rates over the month term. The result is the average daily usage for the month.

If a customer uses 25 TB, 42.6 TB, and 22.2 TB in three consecutive months, Storage Insights will calculate the overage as follows (rounding to the nearest terabyte):

Avgerage Base Overage To be
daily                 billed
-------- ---- ------- ------
25       16.8 8.2     8 TB
42.6     16.8 25.8    26 TB
22.2     16.8 5.4     5 TB

The capacity billed at the end of the quarter will be a total of 39 TB-months in this example.

The usage data collected by Storage Insights will be used by IBM to determine the actual physical data provisioned in the system. This data will be compared to the base system capacity subscription, and any provisioned capacity beyond that base subscription will be billed per terabyte, per month, on a quarterly basis. The calculated usage is based on the average use over a given month. In a highly variable environment, such as managed or cloud service providers, this enables the system to be utilized only as much as is necessary during any given month. Usage may increase or decrease, and will be billed accordingly. Provisioned capacity is considered capacity that is reserved by the system. In thick-provisioned environments (available on FlashSystem 900 and Storwize), this will be the capacity that is allocated to a host whether it has data written or not. For thin- provisioned environments (available on the Storwize), this will be the data that is actually written and used. This is because of the different ways in which thick and thin provisioning utilize disk space.
