Abstract

Storage Utility Offerings include FlashSystem A9000 and FlashSystem A9000R models to provide a fixed total capacity, and 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 to enable you to grow or shrink usage and only pay for configured capacity.

The base system subscription is required to be facilitated through a three-year lease. The variable usage capacity will be billed through MES orders for the capacity used.

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

Highlights

IBM Storage Utility Offerings include IBM FlashSystem A9000 (9838-U25) and A9000R (9837-U25) storage utility models provide the following:

  • Deliver variable capacity usage and billing
  • Provide fixed total capacity
  • Provide a base and variable usage subscription of that total capacity

Description

Storage Utility Offering models are provided for customers who can benefit from a variable capacity system where billing is based on actual 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 an A9000 utility model with 8.5 TB MicroLatency modules, for a total system capacity of 85 TB. The base subscription for such a system is 29.75 TB. During the months where the average daily usage is below 29.75 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 35 TB, 55 TB, and 70. 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
-------- -------- -------- ------
35 TB    29.75 TB 5.25 TB  5 TB
55 TB    29.75 TB 25.25    25 TB
72.5 TB  29.75 TB 42.75 TB 43 TB

The capacity billed at the end of the quarter will be a total of 73 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.

FlashSystem A9000 and A9000R Utility Model U25 deliver the same capabilities as Model 425.

Hardware requirements

Go to the IBM SSIC website for the latest hardware requirements and compatibility information.

Software requirements

FlashSystem A9000 and A9000R require FlashSystem A9000/A9000R software V12.2.1, or later. It is preinstalled on, and shipped with, these systems.

Spectrum Control Storage Insights is used to monitor the system and is required for Storage Utility Offerings.

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. Capacity usage may increase or decrease, and will be billed accordingly.
