Description
Bottom rule

IBM System Storage DS8000 series is an industry leader in providing scalable, high-performance, intelligent storage systems. The DS8700 and DS8800 now introduce new capabilities and enhancements to current functions to deliver customer value for high-performance, business critical, consolidation and multi-tenant environments.

The DS8800 offers an additional expansion frame for additional scalability, along with several new drive options. This scalability allows exploitation of the third generation of Easy Tier algorithms, supporting three tiers that are now able to take advantage of SSD, 10K or 15K SAS, and nearline 7.2K drives in a single system. This provides incredible value, allowing configurations with the appropriate number of drives, less power consumption, and high performance to intelligently balance performance requirements for mixed customer workloads. Along with enhancements to the DS8000 series GUI supporting resources groups, integration with Workload Manager for System z and I/O Priority manager, the DS8000 is the clear leader in simple resource management. Each of these technologies works to manage resources and performance with a minimum of configuration required, and then constantly works to improve system performance and response time. These improvements are the latest in a series of enhancements delivered by the DS8000 product.

Third expansion unit support offers additional capacity options

The IBM System Storage DS8800 series (machine types 2421, 2422, 2423, and 2424) supports additional capacity options by providing third expansion unit (Model 95E) attachment to the DS8800 (Model 951). This capability is designed to allow DS8800 applications requiring large amounts of storage capacity to utilize up to 1,536 2.5" disk drives. With three DS8800 Model 95E expansion units, DS8800 Model 951 supports up to:

  • 1,536 2.5-inch disk drives providing up to 1.4 PB of physical capacity with 900 GB SAS disk drives
  • 768 3.5-inch disk drives providing up to 2.3 PB of physical capacity with 3 TB nearline SAS disk drives

Additional drive options

The DS8800 now offers 300 GB 15,000 rpm and 900 GB 10,000 rpm disk drive sets to provide additional price and performance options and capacity flexibility to address specific application and business requirements. This support is in addition to the already supported 146 GB (15,000 rpm), 450 GB (10,000 rpm), 600 GB (10,000 rpm) SAS disk drive sets and 300 GB SSD drive sets. The 900 GB 10,000 rpm disk drive provides additional 50% more physical capacity than 600 GB drives, increasing the total capacity of high-performance drives supported in a DS8800 system.

The 146 GB 15,000 rpm, 300 GB 15,000 rpm, and 900 GB 10,000 rpm SAS disk drives are additionally offered with Full Disk Encryption and Standby Capacity on Demand (Standby CoD).

For additional flexibility, feature conversions are available for the 300 GB 15,000 rpm and 900 GB 10,000 rpm disk drive sets to exchange existing disk drive sets when purchasing new disk drive sets with higher capacity. The 300 GB 15,000 rpm and 900 GB 10,000 rpm disk drive sets are optional to the DS8800 and are available with feature numbers 2xx8.

3 TB 7,200 rpm nearline SAS drive sets

The DS8800 now offers 3 TB 7,200 rpm nearline SAS disk drive sets, providing additional price and capacity flexibility to address specific application and business requirements. These drives can be added to DS8800 models to support various fixed-content, data-archival, reference-data, and streaming applications that require large amounts of storage capacity at lower cost per MB. Nearline SAS drives are not intended for use in applications that require drive utilization duty cycles greater than 20% and are only supported in RAID-6 configurations. Nearline drives will not share sparing capability with non-nearline drives due to the low duty cycle nature of nearline SAS drives.

The 3 TB 7,200 rpm nearline SAS disk drives provide more raw capacity than existing models, up to 2.3 PB for DS8800 Model 951 (4-way) and up to 360 TB for DS8800 Model 951 (2-way). These disk drive sets are optional to the DS8800 and are available with feature number 2858 under the standard Capacity on Demand offering.

Smart Rebuild Smart Rebuild is an improved algorithm designed to reduce the risk of secondary failures in RAID-5 Arrays. The array rebuild process has been optimized to read data from as few drives in the array as possible. This reduces the amount of time required to rebuild the data in the array, as well reduce the exposure to a second drive failure during the rebuild process.

Smart Rebuild supports RAID-5 non-encrypted and encrypted drives on the DS8700 and DS8800.

DS8000 I/O Priority Manager (System z)

The DS8000 now features I/O Priority Manager for CKD volumes. Together with z/OS Workload Manager (zWLM), this is designed to enable more effective storage consolidation and performance management combined with the ability to align quality of service levels to separate workloads in the system. This capability is exclusive to the DS8000 and System z systems.

The system will prioritize access to system resources to achieve the volume's desired quality of service based on defined performance goals (high, medium, or low) of any volume. I/O Priority Manager will constantly monitor and balance system resources to help applications meet their performance targets automatically without operator intervention based on input from the zWLM software.

The DS8000 I/O Priority Manager feature is available for System z. Support for DS8000 I/O Priority Manager is an optional feature for DS8700 Model 941 and DS8800 Model 951 and is available with the I/O Priority Manager licensed feature indicator DS8000 Function Authorization (239x-LFA) I/O Priority Manager feature number 784x.

IBM Extended Address Volumes (EAV) for System z environments

The DS8000 series today supports System z CKD volumes up to 262,668 cylinders (1 TB). With the EAV function, this capability has been extended to support volumes that can scale up to approximately 1 TB (1,182,006 cylinders) and to address constraints to support large storage capacity needs in System z environments. Larger devices can help simplify storage management as it fosters management of fewer, large volumes as opposed to many small volumes.

The HyperPAV function available today complements EAV by allowing scaling of I/O rates against a single, larger volume. In addition, Dynamic Volume Expansion can also support nondisruptive migration to the larger volume sizes now available. The function is supported on DS8000 series running on IBM System z servers with z/OS V1.12, or later.

The EAV capability is provided with the DS8000 series at no additional charge.

High Performance FICON for System z innovations

With High Performance FICON for System z (zHPF) with z/OS V1.13, zEnterprise™ servers and IBM System Storage has been designed to deliver significant I/O performance improvements for certain I/O transfers for workloads using QSAM, BPAM, and BSAM access methods. Significant I/O performance improvements of up to 100% per adapter are expected without the need for application changes. This builds upon existing zHPF support for VSAM, Extended Format sequential, zFS, and PDSE data sets, and provides support for these data set types when a new parameter is specified in the IGDSMSxx member of parmlib:

  • Basic non-extended format physical sequential data sets
  • Basic and large format sequential data sets

The zHPF function without the most recent enhancements is supported on DS8000 series systems running on IBM zEnterprise servers with all supported FICON features (CHPID type FC) and z/OS V1.11, or later.

Format writes

zHPF has also been enhanced to support format writes. This capability applies to all of the same data set types that were originally supported by the Modified Indirect Data Address Word (MIDAW) facility and zHPF, in addition to QSAM, BPAM, and BSAM data sets described above. The performance value of these enhancements are highest for small records, which are typically used for databases.

DB2 utilities use format writes. Those utilities that load or restore data into a table space or index with a 4K page size are expected to experience the most benefit.

The zHPF enhancement for format writes is supported on DS8000 series running on IBM zEnterprise servers with all supported FICON features (CHPID type FC) and z/OS V1.11, or later.

DB2 list prefetch

zHPF has also been enhanced to provide improvements for DB2 list prefetch processing when using 4K pages. zHPF list prefetch is supported by the FICON Express4 and FICON Express8 features. However, those features limit the number of discontinuities that a single zHPF channel program can have to 22. If the number exceeds 22, z/OS splits the pages into two I/Os. This applies to 4K pages, since DB2 for z/OS typically reads 32x4K pages. The FICON Express® 8S features remove this limitation. The result is fewer I/Os than when using FICON Express4 or FICON Express features. This capability is exclusive to the DS8000 and System z systems.

The function is supported on DS8000 series systems running on IBM zEnterprise servers with FICON Express8S features (CHPID type FC) and z/OS V1.11, or later.

HyperSwap (GDPS) support

HyperSwap support is designed to enhance and improve recovery in HyperSwap-enabled configurations. This support is intended to mitigate the impact of recovery scenarios and is targeted for GDPS/PPRC customers with IBM System Storage DS8700 or DS8800 series.

The DS8000 implements a new event reporting mechanism for events that greatly reduce the impact on host operating systems. This support is targeted to GDPS and PPRC customers with DS8000 disk. The DS8000 will notify GDPS and PPRC of any recovery processing that will impact host I/Os for an extended period.

The DS8000 and GDPS products are constantly working to reduce the impact of both planned and unplanned failover events. This deliverable continues that cooperation.

The function is supported on DS8000 series running on IBM System z servers with z/OS V1.13, or later, and GDPS V3.8, or later.

Quick initialization (System z)

Quick initialization dynamically initializes logical tracks on a newly created or newly expanded logical volume with the appropriate initialization pattern for the host while the logical volume is accessible to the host for normal I/O. With quick initialization, volume creation or volume expansion is not affected by the unavailability of pre-initialized capacity. Host I/O and copy services operations can also be performed immediately after logical volume creation or expansion. Quick initialization is currently available on fixed block logical volumes and is also supported on CKD logical volumes.

IBM System Storage Easy Tier third generation

IBM System Storage Easy Tier third generation is designed to help automate data placement throughout the DS8000 disk pool between SSD drives (tier 1), enterprise class drives (tier 2), and nearline (tier 3) drives to intelligently align the system with current workload requirements. This includes the ability for the system to automatically and non-disruptively relocate data (at the extent level) across any three tiers of storage and within any tier. Relocation within tiers automatically rebalances workloads across available ranks, including ranks that are added to disk pools, to maximize the performance of each tier. Pools may be configured with one, two, or three tiers. The benefit is to align performance of the system with the appropriate application workloads. In addition, Easy tier allows the customer to manually migrate logical volumes between extent pools, to merge extent pools, or to re-distribute logical volumes across the available ranks within an unmanaged extent pool.

This enhancement can help clients improve storage utilization and address performance requirements for multi-tier systems that are not yet deploying solid-state drives (SSDs). They can incrementally add SSDs to these traditional configurations for performance and nearline drives for cost savings depending on requirements. The DS8000 system performance can be automatically balanced across the new drives within the managed pool.

The extended capabilities of Easy Tier third generation support

  • Managed Extent Pools: Easy Tier third generation has extended support for one tier and three tier environments. Additionally, thin provisioned volumes can also be managed.
  • Volume migration: Enables the manual relocation of logical volumes between extent pools, restriping of logical volumes within an unmanaged extent pool, and the ability to merge existing extent pools. Easy Tier third Generation has extended the support for thin provisioning volume migration and merging of extent pools that both contain thin provisioned volumes.
  • Auto-rebalance: Relocates extents among the ranks within a tier to remove workload skews on the ranks in a managed extent pool. Easy Tier third Generation has extended the support for thin provisioning volumes and allows action on single tier and three tier pools to remove skews automatically including cases where ranks are added to a managed extent pool. This is an important enhancement for self-tuning performance on a tiered storage system.
  • Rank depopulation: Allows customers to non-disruptively relocate extents away from selected ranks and stop using the ranks. Easy Tier third Generation has extended the support for thin provisioning volumes in addition to the standard volumes.

Thin provisioning support for FlashCopy (Open systems)

The FlashCopy advanced function is designed to provide a point-in-time copy capability for logical volumes. The FlashCopy function creates a physical point-in-time copy of the data, with minimal interruption to applications, and makes it possible to access both the source and target copies immediately. The FlashCopy function has extended the support of mixing thin provisioning volumes and logical volumes.

With this enhancement, existing customers that have thin provisioning volumes on the system and want to use FlashCopy function do not need any re-configuration.

GUI support for resource groups

An updated GUI now enables easier, more effective management of the resource groups configurations. This DS8000 GUI allows users to create, modify, and delete Logical Volume and Logical Subsystems (CKD/FB), and display the resource group attribute.

This GUI can greatly simplify configurations and management of the resource groups that use this GUI and significantly reduce the costs associated with administrator training. In addition, management of multi-tenant environments using the GUI is simplified.

Parallel volume create and delete

This function combines all requests (volume create or delete) for a single Logical Storage Subsystem from the user into a single request. This consolidation of requests can improve volume creation and deletion performance by up to 500%, reducing configuration time and associated management costs.

DS8000 Storage Manager enhancement

Enhancements are added to the DS Storage Manager (GUI) for the DS8800 for easier and more efficient storage management. The DS Storage Manager is installed as a GUI for the Windows™ and Linux™ operating systems. In addition to using TPC, the GUI can be accessed from any location that has network access using a web browser.

Supported browsers include:

  • Microsoft™ Internet Explorer 7 or 8
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.0 - 3.4 or 3.6

All the new functions introduced in this release will require Licensed Machine Code level 7.6.2.xx.xx, or later, for DS8700 and DS8800.

Release R6.2 LMC supports both DS8700 and DS8800.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

Physical configuration planning

Physical configuration planning is a customer responsibility. Your disk marketing specialist can help you plan and select the DS8000 series physical configuration and features. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8000 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-2297).

Capacity and performance planning assistance is also available. Through the use of Disk Magic, your disk marketing specialist can help you plan and anticipate performance characteristics for specific workloads by modeling proposed configurations.

Installation planning

Installation planning is a customer responsibility. Information about planning the installation of your DS8000 series, including equipment, site, and power requirements, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8000 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-2297).

Logical configuration planning and application

Logical configuration planning is a customer responsibility. Logical configuration refers to the creation of RAID ranks, volumes, or LUNs, and the assignment of the configured capacity to servers.

Application of the initial logical configuration and all subsequent modifications to the logical configuration is a customer responsibility. The logical configuration can be created, applied, and modified using the DS Storage Manager, DS CLI, or DS Open API.

IBM Global Services will also apply or modify your logical configuration (fee-based services).

Licensed Machine Code planning and application

IBM may release changes to the DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code. IBM plans to make most DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code changes available for download by the DS8000 series system from the IBM System Storage technical support website.


Note: Not all Licensed Machine Code changes may be available via the support website. If the machine does not function as warranted and your problem can be resolved through your application of downloadable Licensed Machine Code, you are responsible for downloading and installing these designated Licensed Machine Code changes as IBM specifies. IBM has responsibility for installing changes that IBM does not make available for you to download. The DS8000 series includes many enhancements to make the Licensed Machine Code change process simpler, quicker, and more automated. If you would prefer, you may request IBM to install downloadable Licensed Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.

Calculating physical and effective capacity

Refer to the IBM System Storage DS8000 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-2297) for capacity calculation guidelines.

Encryption planning

Encryption planning is a customer responsibility. There are three major planning components to the implementation of an encryption environment. Review all planning requirements and include them in your installation considerations.

  • Key Server Planning
  • Tivoli® Key Lifecycle Manager Planning
  • Full Disk Encryption Activation Review Planning

Key server planning

Key server planning is a customer responsibility. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8000 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-2297).

DS8800 requires at least two key servers and associated software for each site which has one or more encryption-enabled DS8000 systems, according to the encryption best practices. One server must be isolated and the others can be of any supported key server configuration. Any site that operates independently of other sites must have key servers for the encryption enabled DS8000 systems at that site.

DS8000 Encryption environments are recommended to configure external Laptop HMC for high availability (feature #1130).

It is the customer's responsibility to replicate any key labels across all key servers attached to a given encryption-enabled DS8000 before configuring that key label on the DS8000.

Dual platform key server planning

DS8000 supports the ability to configure two independent key labels for each encryption-enabled DS8000. This capability allows the use of two independent key server platforms when one or both key server platforms are using secure-key mode key stores allowing the isolated key server platform to be used in conjunction with a second key server platform that is operating with a secure-key mode key store.

For customers needing dual platform key server support on DS8000, the installation of TKLM IFIX 2 (TKLM Version 1.0.0.2) is recommended to support displaying both key labels in the GUI. Additionally, for customers who intend to replicate keys between separate sysplexes using ICSF with the JCECCARACFKS key store in secure key mode and with the secure key configuration flag set in TKLM, TKLM Fix Pack 3 (TKLM Version 1.0.0.3) is required.

Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager planning

The DS8000 series supports IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager V1.0 and V2.0.

Program
number       VRM    Program name

5724-T60    1.0.0/  IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager

Program
number       VRM    Program name

5698-B35    1.0.0   IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager for z/OS

Isolated key servers ordered with feature number 1760 will have a Linux operating system and TKLM software preinstalled. Customers will need to acquire a TKLM license for use of the TKLM software, ordered separately from the standalone server hardware.

Refer to the following publications:

  • IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager Quick Start Guide (GI11-8738)
  • IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager Installation and Configuration Guide (SC27-2741)
  • IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager Program Directory (for z/OS) (GI11-4300)

Full Disk Encryption Activation review planning

Full Disk Encryption Activation is a customer responsibility. IBM Full Disk Encryption offerings must be activated prior to use. This activation is part of the installation and configuration steps required for use of the technology. This installation and activation review is performed by the IBM Systems and Technology Lab Services group.
