112-114 IBM 146 GB 15,000 rpm and 300 GB 10,000 rpm 6Gbps SAS 2.5-inch SFF G2HS SEDs offer highest capacity and performance for storage for selected IBM System x servers

PDF versionPDF

At a glance

Data security is a growing market requirement for businesses of all sizes today. While many companies have invested heavily toward thwarting network-based attacks and other virtual threats, few effective safeguards have been readily available to protect against potentially costly exposures of proprietary data resulting from a hard drive "data at rest" being stolen, misplaced, retired, or redeployed.

When used in conjunction with our ServeRAID M5110, ServeRAID M1115 SAS/SATA controllers with optional ServeRAID M5000 Series Advance Feature Keys, the IBM 6Gbps SAS 2.5-inch SFF Self-Encrypting Drives address these security concerns by combining 6Gbps SAS performance with hard-drive based Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 128 disk encryption.

Overview

New self-encrypting drives (SEDs) add high-capacity offerings to the System x and BladeCenter family:

The amount of confidential or propriety information that is gathered and stored by businesses continues to grow exponentially. As the threat of exposure of this data has increased over time, so have the government legislation and industry privacy requirements intended to safeguard this data. These provisions often mandate that corporations safeguard this information for an indefinite amount of time with penalties and other associated expenses attached should a security breach occur.

To reduce the vulnerability of data at rest to potentially costly exposures of proprietary data resulting from hard drives being stolen, misplaced, or even improperly disposed, IBM is adding 6Gbps SAS 2.5-inch SFF Self-Encrypting Drives (SED).

Ideal for small and medium or distributed large enterprise businesses, IBM 146 GB 15K (90Y8944) and 300 GB 10K (90Y8913) 6Gbps SAS 2.5-inch SFF G2HS SEDs provide cost-effective advanced data security with AES 128 disk encryption. These new SED offerings also provide optimal 6Gbps hot-swap SAS capability for your high performance and availability System x environment. SED functionality and 6Gbps SAS performance of these new drives are enabled when used with our new 6Gbps System x servers and internal ServeRAID controllers with Advance Feature Keys for SED support.

When ServeRAID M1115 (81Y4448) or ServeRAID M5110 are installed, they offer internal RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, and 50 and the optional M5000 Series Advance Feature Key (46M0930) upgrade would be required for SED support as well as offering additional RAID 6 and 60 functionality. Intuitive Management is provided through the MegaRAID Management Suite (MSM), which offers a quick and simple configuration path to disk encryption and local security key management, and also provides a full suite of applications and tools that includes a full spectrum of online RAID management and preboot setup utilities.

146 GB, 300 GB performance characteristics include:

212-177 IBM Rational test automation solution delivers virtualized services to help improve agility and accelerate application test cycles

PDF versionPDF

At a glance

Change is a constant in software application delivery whether introduced by business drivers, compliance mandates, or the normal flow of software maintenance. This constant change demands superior business agility - faster development, faster testing, and shorter release cycles with reduced risk - but agility is being challenged by the increasing cost and complexity of software application environments. The new Rational test automation portfolio delivers comprehensive application service virtualization and test integration capability to reduce the cost and effort of delivering complex test environments and enable continuous integration to improve the return of software quality activities.

For ordering, contact Your IBM representative or an IBM Business Partner. For more information contact the Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (426-2255). Reference: AE001

Overview

Today's applications and manufactured products are increasingly complex. They comprise an unprecedented level of connectivity and dependency between systems, processes, and infrastructure. Whether deployed in traditional software development or cloud environments, businesses are able to create products, systems, and services that are increasingly instrumented, interconnected, and intelligent.

While software fuels this innovation and growth, challenges are emerging to test these composite, heterogeneous applications, products, and services. In the mean time, software development teams find innovative ways to increase agility and test teams struggle with managing this complexity and matching the speed at which code is delivered for testing.

The new IBM test automation solution is designed to help address the challenges of testing highly integrated and complex systems. Whether legacy or modern architectures ( IBM , TIBCO, Software AG, SAP, Oracle, or other integration environments), the new Rational solution:

This rich set of capabilities significantly reduces the cost of provisioning and maintaining test environments and shortens test cycle times by moving integration testing earlier in the development life cycle. The result - faster product and service delivery with improved quality and reduced risk.
