Overview
Bottom rule

The IBM System Storage™ SAN Volume Controller Storage Engine (2145 Model 8A4) introduces a hardware component option for the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller (SVC). The 2145 Model 8A4 is a lower-priced storage engine option. The components of the SVC include highly specialized software, storage engines installed in pairs, and power connection equipment (uninterruptible power supply or UPS).

The SAN Volume Controller storage engine, 2145-8A4, is based on the IBM System x3250 M2 hardware platform. It is designed to provide sustainable performance and scalability for diverse entry-level workloads. The 2145 Model 8A4 especially complements the IBM System Storage SVC Entry Edition Software (5639-VW1) offering, but SVC 5639-VC4 is also supported.

The Model 8A4 does not replace the current SVC 2145 Model 8G4. The Model 8A4 can coexist with other SVC models in SVC clusters, but must be added in pairs.

Description
Bottom rule

The IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Solution is designed to incorporate specialized software, storage engines (SVC Storage Engines) installed in pairs, a System Storage Productivity Center console or hardware master console, and UPSes. The SAN Volume Controller hardware configuration consists of a cluster of IBM 2145 servers, called SVC Storage Engines. Each SVC Storage Engine is a node; two nodes make up a node pair (I/O Group); up to four I/O Groups constitute a SAN Volume Controller cluster. The cluster is scalable from one to four node pairs (I/O Groups), and is supported by dual read/write cache. This design is intended to avoid single points of failure and support concurrent maintenance.

IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Storage Engine

The SVC Storage Engine (2145 Model 8A4) is based on the IBM System x3250 M2, has an 8-GB cache, and 4-Gbps host bus adapter (HBA) for attachment to the SAN. The Model 8A4 auto-negotiates the fabric speed on a per-port basis and is not restricted to run at the same speed as other node pairs in the cluster.

The 2145 Model 8A4 can be added in pairs to an existing cluster of Model 4F2, Model 8F2, Model 8F4, or Model 8G4 engines, up to the maximum of four node pairs.

One UPS - single (#8115) must also be ordered for each SVC Storage Engine.

The SVC Storage Engine is shipped with preloaded SVC Storage Software V4.3.1 (ordered separately). The SAN Volume Controller hardware will not be shipped without a companion order for the software. For a description of the software and ordering procedures, refer to Software Announcement 208-326, dated October 28, 2008.

The storage engines must be installed in pairs to enable load sharing and failover protection. Four optical fiber cables are required by each engine in the cluster for connection to the Fibre Channel switches in the SAN. These cables are not provided as part of the engine, but may be ordered by feature number.

Each SVC Storage Engine has an Ethernet port for connection via Ethernet LAN to the System Storage Productivity Center or master console that provides configuration and error reporting. These connections need to be aggregated through an Ethernet hub or switch. The Ethernet hub or switch and cabling are not included as part of the SAN Volume Controller.

Model 8A4 engines can replace all earlier models of the SVC Storage Engines in a cluster without disrupting applications running on the host. To have the new nodes replace existing nodes in an existing configuration, you must order feature number 3905 for one, and only one, of the replacement nodes that are being ordered. Feature number 3905 directs the service representative to remove the old nodes from the existing rack.

System Storage Productivity Center

IBM System Storage Productivity Center, 2805-MC2 or 2805-MC3, must be ordered via AAS regardless of whether SVC Software Entry Edition V4 is ordered via AAS or Passport Advantage®.

Uninterruptible power supply (UPS)

The UPS is designed to provide temporary power in the event of a power failure to allow the SVC Storage Engine to begin node shutdown gracefully. Shutdown includes saving the contents of the cache and cluster information to the internal disk drive of each node.

The UPS monitors the condition of its battery to enable planned maintenance actions to be performed. Each UPS provides an independent source of power to the node to which it is connected. It must not be used for any other purpose.

The UPS - single feature (#8115) provides one UPS for one SVC Storage Engine of the SAN Volume Controller cluster. One UPS - single (#8115) must be ordered for each engine of a cluster, both for the initial engine (#3001) and for additional engines (#3002).

Each UPS - single (#8115) requires a 200-240 V, minimum 5 amp power source; the UPS - single (#8115) is protected by its own 10 amp circuit breaker. UPSs of a node pair (I/O group) should be connected to separate circuits to provide added redundancy.

A power cord to connect the UPS to a standard PDU ships standard with the UPS. A country-specific power cord to connect to an alternate power source must also be ordered with the UPS.

This feature is both plant- and field-intalled.

Redundant AC Power (#8300)

This is an optional feature that is designed to enhance reliability by accepting power from two separate circuits. Each Redundant AC Power switch can be used to supply power to one or two SVC UPSs (#8115). The preferred configuration is one Redundant AC Power switch for each SVC UPS (each SVC storage engine). If two SVC UPSs are powered by a single Redundant AC Power switch, the two nodes must not be in the same I/O group. In the event of the failure of either of the input circuits, power continues to be provided to the SVC UPS by the redundant circuit.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

The following features support use by people with disabilities:

  • Controls and latches are operable with one hand and minimal dexterity.
  • The keys on the panel are tactilely discernible without activating them.

Code preload

Storage Engine Preload(#0010)

This feature provides the required IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Storage Software that must be preloaded by IBM on the SVC Storage Engine. It must be included with each SVC Storage Engine ordered. This feature is plant-installed only.

Storage Engine Preload PA (#0017)

Specifies that the software order be fulfilled via Passport Advantage. This feature must be included in the order for the first SVC Storage Engine ordered for a cluster (#3001), unless the software order is to be fulfilled via AAS (#0018). The order for SVC Storage Software V4.3.1 must be placed separately via Passport Advantage. This feature is plant-installed only and is mutually exclusive of feature numbers 0018 and 0019.

Storage Engine Preload AAS (#0018)

Specifies that the software order be fulfilled via AAS. This feature must be included in the order for the first SVC Storage Engine ordered for a cluster (#3001), unless the software order is to be fulfilled via Passport Advantage (#0017). The order for SVC Storage Software V4.3.1 must be placed separately via AAS. This feature is plant-installed only and is mutually exclusive of feature numbers 0017 and 0019.

Site secondary cluster (#0019)

This feature is for administrative purposes only and specifies that the order for a new cluster is not for the first cluster to be installed at the customer site; it specifies that this is for a subsequent cluster to be installed at the same site. Specifying feature #0019 will verify that no software is to be ordered, that is, that a software license is already in effect for a cluster installed at the customer site. This feature is plant-installed only and is mutually exclusive of feature numbers 0017 and 0018.

Miscellaneous features

JEMT Indicator (#0021)

This feature is used to indicate an IBM internal order for machine under the Joint Engineering Manufacturing Test (JEMT) program. It is for administrative purposes only.

STG Lab Services (#1888)

This feature provides one day of Storage and Technology custom services and consulting. The STG Lab Services team must be contacted by the IBM account team, prior to placing the order for this feature, to allow the work to be completed by these services to be sized. STG Lab Services can be contacted at:

http://www.ibm.com/systems/services/labservices/labservices_storage. html

Based on the sizing, this feature must be ordered in a quantity equal to the number of days estimated in the sizing.

Engines

Initial Storage Engine (#3001)

Feature number 3001 is used to indicate the first SVC Storage Engine of a new SAN Volume Controller cluster. It must be included for one, and only one, SVC Storage Engine in a new cluster order. An order for the SVC Storage Software V4.3.1 (5639-VC4 or 5639-VW1) must be placed when feature number 3001 is ordered. This feature also provides the publications included with the first SVC Storage Engine in the cluster. This feature is plant installed only.

Additional Storage Engine (#3002)

Feature number 3002 is used to indicate all additional SVC Storage Engines of a SAN Volume Controller cluster and for all SVC Storage Engines to be added to an existing (already installed) SAN Volume Controller cluster. When ordered as part of a new cluster, the number must be an odd number (1, 3, 5, or 7); when ordered to add to an existing cluster, the number must be even (2, 4, or 6). This feature is plant installed only.

SVC engine removal (#3905)

Feature number 3905 indicates that installed engines are to be removed from the rack by an IBM service representative. This feature should be specified only for an engine that is intended to replace a currently installed engine. The feature may be specified for only one replacement engine per order of replacements.

Cables

5 m Fiber Optic Cable LC-LC (#5305)

This feature provides one 5-meter, fiber optic cable with LC connectors on each end. Four of this feature may be ordered with each SVC Storage Engine. This feature is both plant and field installable.

25 m Fiber Opt Cable LC-LC (#5325)

This feature provides one 25-meter, fiber optic cable with LC connectors on each end. Four of this feature may be ordered with each SVC Storage Engine. This feature is both plant and field installable.

Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) (#8115)

In the event of a power failure, the UPS can provide temporary power while the contents of the SAN Volume Controller cache and cluster information is written to the internal disk drive of each node of the SAN Volume Controller. The UPS monitors the condition of its battery to enable planned maintenance actions to be performed. Each UPS provides an independent source of power to the node to which it is connected. It must not be used for any other purpose.

The UPS - single feature (#8115) provides one UPS for one SVC Storage Engine of the SAN Volume Controller cluster. For orders of a new SAN Volume Controller cluster (includes an initial engine, feature number 3001) running SVC Storage Software V2, or later, placed after May 10, 2005, one UPS - single (#8115) must be ordered for each engine of the cluster, both for the initial engine (#3001) and for additional engines (#3002).

Each UPS - single (#8115) requires a 200-240 V, minimum 5 amp power source; the UPS - single (#8115) is protected by its own 10 amp circuit breaker. UPSs of a node pair (I/O group) should be connected to separate circuits to provide added redundancy.

This feature may be mixed with UPS feature number 8100 in a SAN Volume Controller configuration only for configurations running SVC Storage Software V2, or later. For configurations running SVC Software V1, UPS feature number 8100 must be used; V1 does not support feature number 8115.

For clusters of two or six engines, the use of UPS - single (#8115) may result in a lower-price solution. UPS feature number 8100 supported up to four nodes.

A power cord to connect the UPS to a standard PDU ships as standard with the UPS. A country-specific power cord to connect to an alternate power source must also be ordered with the UPS.

This feature is both plant- and field-installed.

Redundant AC Power (#8300)

Each Redundant AC Power switch is designed to enhance reliability by accepting power from two separate circuits. Each Redundant AC Power switch can be used to provide power to one or two SVC UPSes (#8115). The preferred configuration is one Redundant AC Power switch for each SVC UPS (each SVC storage engine). If two SVC UPSes are powered by a single Redundant AC Power switch, the two nodes must not be in the same I/O group. In the event of the failure of either of the input circuits, power continues to be supplied to the SVC UPS by the redundant circuit.

This feature is designed to provide power to UPS feature #8115 only; it must not be used for any other purpose.

Each of the two power sources are required to be 200-240 V, minimum 5 amp, 50/60 Hz, single phase, and to have IEC320-C19 type outlets. The power cable (cord), between the Redundant AC Power switch and each connected SVC UPS, is rated at 10 amps.

Each input circuit for the Redundant AC Power switch must be protected by a circuit breaker with maximum rating of 16 amps. Where the Redundant AC Power switch is used to supply a single UPS, a circuit breaker with a minimum rating of 5 amps is required; if two UPSes are being powered then a breaker with a minimum rating of 7 amps is required.

Power cords to connect the Redundant AC Power switch to a standard PDU ships standard with the switch. The Redundant AC Power switch connects to a rack PDU only. There are no separate country-specific power cords for the switch.

This optional feature is both plant- and field-installable.

UPS - single (#8115) requirements

Each UPS - single (#8115) in the cluster must be provided a single-phase 200-240 volt, minimum 5 amp, 50 or 60 Hz power source. It is not required, but recommended that the UPS for each node of a node pair be on a separate, independent, circuit to provide added redundancy in the system structure.

A power cord to connect the UPS (#8115) to a standard PDU ships standard with the UPS.

In addition, a country-specific power cord must be specified by feature number for connection to wall-type outlets should the rack not have a compatible PDU or if the PDU has wall-type outlets. One of the following power cord specify features is required to connect the UPS to the alternate power source.

Ethernet connection

Every SAN Volume Controller must be connected via Ethernet to a System Storage Productivity Center or master console. Multiple clusters can be managed by a single System Storage Productivity Center or master console. Therefore, at least the first cluster installed in a SAN must include a SSPC (MT 2805) or master console.

Fibre Channel and Ethernet cabling is not included as part of the hardware provided by IBM. These are the responsibility of the customer. Each SVC Storage Engine requires four fiber optic cables. Fiber optic cables may be optionally ordered with the SVC Storage Engines by feature number.

Software requirements

The SVC Storage Engines require that SVC Storage Software V4.3.1 (5639-VC4 or 5639-VW1), or later, be ordered at the same time the initial order for the engines of a cluster is placed.

The software can be ordered via the AAS ordering system or the Passport Advantage system. The appropriate hardware feature (#0017 for Passport Advantage, #0018 for AAS) must be included in the hardware order for the initial engine to be installed at a customer location, that indicates the desired fulfillment system. For subsequent clusters for the same customer location, feature number 0019 should be indicated on the order. Only one software order and license is required for each customer location.

For additional details, refer to Software Announcement208-326, dated October 28, 2008.

Limitations

The IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Solution is designed to support up to 8 petabytes (PB) of storage. The maximum number of SVC Storage Engines supported in a SAN Volume Controller cluster is eight.

For limitations of the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Solution, imposed by the SVC Storage Software, refer to Software Announcement 208-326, dated October 28, 2008.

Additional limitations and configuration guidelines may apply, as listed under Configuration Requirements and Guidelines at

http://www.ibm.com/storage/support/2145

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

One 220 V power source is required for each UPS feature. Use of separate, independent circuits for the power sources for each node of a node pair is recommended to enhance redundancy within the system.

Redundant AC Power (#8300)

Each of the two power sources are required to be 200-240 V, minimum 5 amp, 50/60 Hz, single phase, and to have IEC320-C19 type outlets.

Each input circuit for the Redundant AC Power switch must be protected by a circuit breaker with maximum rating of 16 amps. Where the Redundant AC Power switch is used to supply a single UPS, a circuit breaker with a minimum rating of 5 amps is required; if two UPSs are being powered then a breaker with a minimum rating of 7 amps is required.

SVC engine removal (#3905)

The SVC engine removal feature should be considered if the engines being ordered will be installed as replacements for currently installed engines. This feature allows the IBM Customer Engineer to physically remove the old engine from its rack.
