Description:

IBM SmartCloud Storage Access R1.2

As part of the end to end reference architecture for IBM SCSA, a new software PID for R1.2 (PID 5608-ACC) will be used for IBM SmartCloud Storage Access Instrumentation Layer V5.2. SCSA R1.2 will support block provisioning and other key features powered by Tivoli Storage Productivity Center that can be used on any SCSA deployment, regardless of the underlying infrastructure (file or block, IBM or non-IBM devices under SVC).

IBM SmartCloud Storage Access R1.1

IBM SmartCloud Storage Access R1.1 increases productivity, lowers operations cost, and improves storage service quality.

With IBM SmartCloud Storage Access R1.1, you can quickly and easily implement a private cloud storage solution and leverage the benefits of a cloud delivery model.
 
Program Number

  • IBM SmartCloud Storage Access V1.2.0 (5641-SSA)
  • IBM SmartCloud Storage Access for Passport Advantage V1.2.0 (5725-I44)
  • IBM Smartcloud Storage Access Instrumentation Layer V5.2.0 (5608-ACC)
Highlights:

IBM SmartCloud Storage Access R1.2

IBM SmartCloud Storage Access R1.2:

  • Self-service storage provisioning for IBM Storwize V7000, SVC, and XIV storage systems

  • Storage Cloud Integration API enables third party ISV support for SmartCloud Storage Access

  • Chargeback mechanism via the "csv" export usage files which can be used by IBM SmartCloud Cost Management or customer legacy applications

  • GUI improvements for a better user experience

  • Multiple existing authentication servers can be integrated to support for authentication

IBM SmartCloud Storage Access Instrumentation Layer V5.2, software PID (PID 5608-ACC), license metric will be Per virtual server and will be required at least one per data center. In a disaster recovery environment, this PID will be required in a quantity of one in the primary site, the same quantity as in the disaster recovery site.

Note: The software PID for IBM SmartCloud Storage Access Instrumentation Layer is not available separately from SCSA. This PID, 5608-ACC, is not required if the IBM SmartCloud Virtual Storage Center is used to manage the storage to be provisioned by SCSA. This PID, 5608-ACC, is required if Tivoli Storage Productivity Center is used to manage the storage provisioned by SCSA, and the instrumentation layer PID must be installed and run from a separate server.

IBM SmartCloud Storage Access R1.1

IBM SmartCloud Storage Access R1.1 enables enterprises to implement a private cloud storage service where users can request and receive storage capacity, share files with other users, and administrators can easily monitor and report usage with just a few clicks.

IBM SmartCloud Storage Access R1.1:

  • Enables self service with a simple intuitive interface and improves productivity

  • Offers fast time to value with a solution that is simple to deploy and easy to use

  • Works with existing storage infrastructures, such as Storwize V7000 Unified, SONAS, or Tivoli Storage Productivity Center with TPC V5.1 or TPC 5.1 Select Select, or SmartCloud Virtual Storage Center V5.1

  • Improves overall IT efficiency and quality of service with automated provisioning, easy monitoring, and reporting

  • Provides overall reduction in operational complexity and expenses with a self-service portal, standardization, and automation

  • Integrates with Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) for authentication and email systems for notifications
