IBM Scale Out Network Attached Storage (SONAS) system supports traditional NAS features and functions, including:

  • Snapshots
  • Quotas (user, group, and fileset level)
  • Integration with user directory servers such as Microsoft® Active Directory (AD) and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
  • Command line interface (CLI) and browser-based graphical user interface (GUI)
  • Call home and remote support capabilities

In addition to these traditional features, this system supports advanced features, including integrated Tivoli® Storage Manager backup client and HSM/ILM.

The system consists of:

  • Management node
  • Interface nodes
  • Storage nodes
  • Storage controllers
  • Disk storage expansion units
  • Ethernet and InfiniBand switches and racks

The management node provides a central point for the system administrator to configure, monitor, and manage the system. The management node supports both a browser-based GUI and a CLI. It also provides a System Health Center for monitoring the overall health of the system.

The interface node provides the network port connection and the file services for the IBM SONAS system. These nodes can operate at up to 10 Gb speeds with optional adapters to provide extremely fast access to data. They are connected to the rest of the SONAS system via a redundant high-speed InfiniBand data network.

The system has the concept of a storage pod. Each storage pod consists of a pair of storage nodes and one or two storage controllers. Each storage controller contains 60 disks, and can have one storage expansion attached for 60 additional disks per controller. Each storage pod supports a maximum of 240 hard disk drives (HDDs). A maximum of 30 storage pods are supported for a maximum of 7200 HDDs in a single system.

These systems are configured within three pre-defined, customizable rack configurations. The Base Rack (2851-RXA) contains the management node, the InfiniBand switches, and from two to six interface nodes with up to one storage pod. The Storage Expansion Rack (2851-RXB) contains up to two storage pods, for a maximum of 480 disks. The Interface Expansion Rack (2851-RXC) contains up to twenty additional interface nodes.

The main components of the SONAS systems are the Interface node (2851-SI1), Management node (2851-SM1), Storage node (2851-SS1), Storage controller (2851-DR1), and Disk Storage expansion Unit (2851-DE1). These components are assembled into one of three rack configurations with Ethernet and InfiniBand switches.

The minimum SONAS system configuration consists of:

  • Two interface nodes
  • Two 36-port 4X DDR InfiniBand switches
  • One management node
  • Two storage nodes with one storage controller

The maximum size of a SONAS system, in terms of interface nodes and storage pods, depends on whether the 36-port or 96-port InfiniBand switch is selected. Each of the following major components requires one InfiniBand port on each InfiniBand switch:

  • Management node
  • Interface node
  • Storage node

Three InfiniBand ports of each InfiniBand switch are reserved for the following components:

  • Two reserved for future use
  • One for the required management node

The remaining InfiniBand ports are available for interface nodes and storage nodes.

The Interface Node (2851-SI1) is a 2U server containing the following:

  • Two Intel® Xeon® E5530 (Nehalem EP) Quad Core processors
  • 32 GB of DDR3 memory standard, with optional features to total either 64 or 128 GB of total memory
  • Four onboard 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports (two available for customer use)
  • Two 300 GB 2.5-inch SFF 10K RPM SAS Slim-HS hard disk drives with mirroring between them
  • Four PCIe Gen 2.0 x8 adapter slots
  • Integrated Baseboard Management Controller
  • Two redundant hot-swappable power supplies
  • Six redundant hot-swappable cooling fans

The interface node provides the connections to the customer's IP network for attaching to the SONAS system for network file serving capabilities (CIFS, HTTP, NFS, and FTP). A SONAS system contains a minimum of two interface nodes and a maximum of 30.

The interface node contains two redundant, hot-swappable 300 GB 2.5-inch 10K RPM SAS HDDs with mirroring between them for high-availability. The HDDs contain SONAS System Software which hosts the operating system and all other software needed for an operational SONAS system.

Two of the PCIe adapter slots are already populated with two single-port 4X Double Data Rate (DDR) InfiniBand Host Channel Adapters (HCA). The two HCAs attach to two independent InfiniBand switches in the SONAS system and interconnect the interface nodes to the management and the storage nodes.

Two of the PCIe adapter slots are available for customer use to add more adapters for host IP interface connectivity.

Each interface node comes standard with two 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports available to connect to the customer's IP network. Additional Ethernet connectivity can be achieve by adding one of the following features:

  • Feature number 1100 (Quad-port 1GbE NIC)
  • Feature number 1101 (Dual-port 10 Gb Converged Network Adapter)

Each interface node comes standard with 32 GB of memory. The following feature codes can be used to increase the memory in the interface node:

  • Feature number 1000 Additional 32 GB of Memory
  • Feature number 1001 128 GB Memory Option

Each interface node is connected to the two InfiniBand switches by one InfiniBand cable to each switch, a total of two cables. The InfiniBand HCA in the interface nodes have an X4 port. The 36-port InfiniBand switches have QSFP connectors and the 96-port InfiniBand switches have X4 connectors.

For an interface node (2851-SI1) in the base rack (2851-RXA) no InfiniBand cables need to be ordered. Copper InfiniBand cables are automatically provided for all interface nodes in the base rack. The length of the copper InfiniBand cables provided is based on the position of the interface node in the rack.

The management node (2851-SM1) is a 2U server containing the following:

  • Two Intel Xeon E5530 (Nehalem EP) Quad Core processors
  • 32 GB of DDR3 memory
  • Four onboard 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports (two for connecting to customer network for management access)
  • Two 300 GB 2.5-inch SFF 10K RPM SAS Slim-HS hard disk drives with mirroring between them
  • One non-mirrored 300 GB 2.5-inch SFF 10K RPM SAS Slim-HS hard disk drive for centralized log and trace file collection
  • Four PCIe Gen 2.0 x8 adapter slots
  • Integrated Baseboard Management Controller
  • Two redundant hot-swappable power supplies
  • Six redundant hot-swappable cooling fans

The management node provides the user interface for configuring, administering, and monitoring the SONAS system. A single management node is required. The management node contains two redundant, hot-swappable 300 GB 2.5-inch 10K RPM SAS HDDs with mirroring between them for high-availability. The hard disk drives contain SONAS System Software product which hosts the operating system and all other software needed for an operational SONAS system.

Two of the PCIe x8 adapter slots are already populated with two single-port 4X DDR InfiniBand HCAs. The two HCAs attach to two independent InfiniBand switches in the SONAS system and interconnect the management node to the other components of the SONAS system.

The management node comes with two InfiniBand copper cables to connect it to the two InfiniBand switches in the base rack. The primary management node is assumed to be in the SONAS base rack with the two InfiniBand switches.

The storage node (2851-SS1) is a 2U server containing the following:

  • Two Intel Xeon E5530 (Nehalem EP) Quad-Core processors
  • 8 GB of DDR3 memory
  • Four onboard 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports
  • Two 300 GB 2.5-inch SFF 10K RPM SAS Slim-HS hard disk drives with mirroring between them
  • Four PCIe Gen 2.0 x8 adapter slots
  • Integrated Baseboard Management Controller
  • Two redundant hot-swappable power supplies
  • Six redundant hot-swappable cooling fans

The storage node provides the InfiniBand connection to the InfiniBand cluster interconnect, and direct fibre-channel attachment to the SONAS storage controller. Storage nodes must be configured in high-availability pairs. The two storage nodes in the high-availability pair are connected to one or two SONAS storage controllers.

Two of the onboard Ethernet ports connect the storage node to the internal private management network, and two for a NULL Ethernet connection to the DASD Disk Storage Controller.

The storage node contains two redundant, hot-swappable 300 GB 2.5-inch 10K RPM SAS HDDs with mirroring between them for high-availability. The hard disk drives contain on SONAS System Software product which hosts the operating system and all other software needed for an operational SONAS system.

All of the PCIe x8 adapter slots in the storage node are already populated with adapters. Two of the PCIe adapter slots are populated with two single-port 4X DDR InfiniBand HCAs for attaching to the two InfiniBand switches in the SONAS system. The other two PCIe x8 adapter slots are populated with two dual-port 8 Gbps Fibre Channel HBAs for attaching to the SONAS storage controller.

The SONAS storage controller (2851-DR1) is a high-performance 4U storage controller containing:

  • Dual redundant hot-swappable RAID controllers
  • Dual redundant hot-swappable power supply/cooling modules
  • Support for 60 3.5-inch SAS/SATA HDDs

Each RAID controller contains:

  • 4 GB of cache
  • Two 8 Gbps Fibre Channel host ports
  • One drive-side SAS expansion port

The storage controller supports RAID 5 and 6. One high-density disk storage expansion unit may be attached to the storage controller. The storage controller comes with four Fibre Channel optical cables for attaching the storage controller to the two storage nodes.

All sixty hard disk drives in the storage controller must be the same, therefore a quantity of six of the following feature numbers must be ordered:

#1300
#1301
#1310
#1311

The following table shows the total raw storage capacity of the storage controller when populated with the different hard disk drive features:

                                                    Total raw
Quantity  Feature   Description                     storage capacity
 
6         1300      10-pack of 7.2K RPM 1 TB SATA    60 TB
6         1301      10-pack of 7.2K RPM 2 TB SATA   120 TB
6         1310      10-pack of 15K RPM 450 GB SAS    27 TB
6         1311      10-pack of 15K RPM 600 GB SAS    36 TB
 

Features numbers 9011, 9012, 9013, and 9014 are plant-only features and are used to indicate into which storage controller location (1-4) this particular storage controller is to be placed during manufacturing. The rack must be populated from the bottom of the rack (EIA position 1) to the top of the rack (EIA position 42) for stability reasons. Therefore, the following rules apply to the placement of storage controllers within the rack:

  • You may not have a storage controller in location #4 (EIA positions 29-32) unless you have a storage controller in location #3 (EIA positions 21-24).
  • You may not have a storage controller in location #3 (EIA positions 21-24) unless you have a storage controller in location #2 (EIA positions 9-12).
  • You may not have a storage controller in location #2 (EIA positions 9-12) unless you have a storage controller in location #1 (EIA positions 1-4).

Since the base only holds two storage controllers, feature numbers 9013 and 9014 are not valid when plant-merging the storage controller into the Base Rack (2851-RXA).

The SONAS disk storage expansion unit (2851-DE1) is a 4U high-density disk enclosure supporting 60 3.5 inch SATA or SAS hard disk drives

One disk storage expansion unit may be attached to a single SONAS storage controller. Each disk storage expansion unit contains the following:

  • Two SAS switch modules which provide SAS connections to the storage controller
  • Two redundant hot-swappable power supply/cooling units
  • Support for 60 3.5-inch SAS or SATA HDDs

The Disk Storage Expansion unit must be physically located in the same rack and in adjacent EIA positions as the SONAS Storage controller to which it is attaching.

All sixty hard disk drives in the disk storage expansion unit must be the same, therefore a six of the following feature numbers must be ordered:

#1300
#1301
#1310
#1311

The following table shows the total raw storage capacity of the disk storage expansion unit when populated with the different types of hard disk drive features:

                                                        Total raw
Quantity  Feature   Description                         storage capacity
 
6         1300      10-pack of 7.2K RPM 1 TB SATA        60 TB
6         1301      10-pack of 7.2K RPM 2 TB SATA       120 TB
6         1310      10-pack of 15K RPM 450 GB SAS        27 TB
6         1311      10-pack of 15K RPM 600 GB SAS        36 TB
 

Features numbers 9021, 9022, 9023, and 9024 are plant-only features and are used to indicate into which disk storage expansion unit location (1-4) this particular disk storage expansion unit is to be placed during manufacturing. A disk storage expansion unit must be attached to a storage controller. The storage controller attached to a disk storage expansion unit should be in the EIA positions immediately adjacent and below the disk storage expansion unit. Therefore, the following rules apply to the placement of storage controllers within the rack:

  • You may not have a disk storage expansion unit in disk storage expansion unit location #1 (EIA positions 5-8) unless you have a storage controller in storage controller location #1 (EIA positions 1-4).
  • You may not have a disk storage expansion unit in disk storage expansion unit location #2 (EIA positions 13-16) unless you have a storage controller in storage controller location #2 (EIA positions 9-12)
  • You may not have a disk storage expansion unit in disk storage expansion unit location #3 (EIA positions 25-28) unless you have a storage controller in storage controller location #3 (EIA positions 21-24)
  • You may not have a disk storage expansion unit in disk storage expansion unit location #4 (EIA positions 33-36) unless you have a storage controller in storage controller location #4 (EIA positions 29-32)

Since the base rack only holds two disk storage expansion units, features numbers 9023 and 9024 are not valid when plant-merging the storage controller into the Base Rack (2851-RXA).

Software requirements

The SONAS SW PID (5639-SN1) is a corequisite of the management, interface, and storage hardware nodes (2851-SI1, -SM1, -SS1), and must be ordered concurrently with the proper chargeable feature.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

The IBM Scale Out Network Attached Storage machine type (2851) is designated as Customer Engineer (CE) installable. CE setup, operation, and service publications are available.

You are responsible for downloading or obtaining from IBM, and installing designated Machine Code (microcode, basic input/output system code (called BIOS), utility programs, device drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM machine) and other software updates in a timely manner from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that IBM provides. You may request IBM to install Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.

Cable orders

It is the customer's responsibility to provide the appropriate type for connecting the host or network and the 2851.

The cables to connect the various components of the 2851 must be ordered on the initial order and replacements can be obtained by ordering via MES.

Security, auditability, and control

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
