Description
Bottom rule

IBM System Storage DS8000 series is the storage leader in providing high levels of performance, flexibility, scalability, resiliency and total overall value to the most demanding, heterogeneous storage environments.

The DS8800 offers new encryption capable SSD and nearline 7.2K drives. In addition, IBM offers new fourth generation of Easy Tier algorithms, which supports three tiers of either non-encryption or encryption SSD drives, 10K or 15K SAS drives or nearline 7.2K drives in a single system. These features are designed to enhance security and help prevent loss or unauthorized access to business critical data, while maintaining high performance, by intelligently balancing performance requirements for mixed workloads.

Along with enhancements to the DS8000 thin provisioning support for copy services, these technologies are designed to manage resources effectively even during disaster recovery. These improvements are the latest in a series of enhancements delivered by the DS8000 product.

400 GB disk drives offer additional price and performance

IBM System Storage DS8800 now offers 400 GB SSD drive sets which support the eight drive install group of SSD (half disk drive sets) and the sixteen drive install group of SSD (drive sets). The DS8800 400 GB disk drive sets provide additional price, performance, and capacity flexibility to help address specific application and business requirements. 400 GB SSD drives provide more raw capacity than the previously supported 300 GB SSD drives, increasing the total capacity of high-performance drives supported in a DS8800 system.

Feature conversions are available for 400 GB SSD drive sets to exchange existing disk drive sets when purchasing new sets with higher capacity. 400 GB SSD drive sets are optional to the DS8800 and are available with feature numbers 61xx.

Support for 400 GB SSD drives is an included feature of the DS8800 Models 951 and 95E.

Encryption drive options

DS8800 can help address the requirement for data protection for all drive types, not only offering SAS disk drives, but also SSD drives and nearline SAS disk drives. Full Disk Encryption (FDE) drive sets let you encrypt data at rest on a DS8800 series storage controller, helping to mitigate the threat of theft or unauthorized access to business critical data.

The DS8800 series has the capability to allow you to install 400 GB SSD drives and 3 TB 7,200 rpm nearline SAS drives with encryption capability and with key management services supported by Tivoli® Key Lifecycle Manager software (TKLM). The FDE drive sets are optional to the DS8000 series and are available with feature numbers 5xxx and 6x5x. Encryption drive set support must also be ordered via feature number 1751.

The FDE support feature is available only as plant order. Plant-configured encryption-supporting systems will be allowed to increase the number of drive sets installed at the installed location. Intermixing of drives is not supported, thus the entire subsystem is encrypted SAS, nearline SAS, and SSD drives (feature numbers 5xxx or 6x5x).

Additionally, you must complete an environment verification process to confirm best practice configuration of the encryption solution. This verification can be requested from IBM Lab Based Services (recommended), or completed by you, but is a prerequisite of the encryption solution activation process.

z/OS® support of disk encryption will be available on z/OS V1.8, or later.

IBM System Storage Easy Tier fourth generation

IBM System Storage Easy Tier has now enhanced the support of FDE drives. Easy Tier can perform volume migration, auto performance rebalancing in both homogenous and hybrid pools, hot spot management, rank depopulation, and thin provisioning (ESE volumes only) on encrypted drives in addition to the non-encrypted drives.

This enhancement is designed to help increase data security for customers who have single tier or multiple tier systems and still achieve system performance.

Thin provisioning support for Remote Metro Mirror, Global Mirror, and Metro Global Mirror for open systems

The remote mirror function is designed to provide greater protection against planned and unplanned outages. With this enhancement, existing customers that have thin provision volumes on the system and want to use Metro Mirror, Global Mirror, and Metro Global Metro functions do not need any reconfiguration.

Metro Mirror offers a synchronous, long-distance copy option that constantly updates a secondary copy of a volume to match changes made to a source volume. Global Mirror provides a long-distance remote copy solution across two sites using asynchronous technology. Metro Global Mirror is a three-site, high-availability disaster recovery solution, which uses synchronous replication to mirror data between a local site and an intermediate site, and asynchronous replication to mirror data from an intermediate site to a remote site. The Metro Mirror, Global Mirror, and Metro Global Mirror functions have extended the support of mixing thin provision volumes and logical volumes.

All the new functions introduced in this release will require Licensed Machine Code level 7.6.3.xx.xx, or later, for DS8700 and DS8800.

Release R6.3 LMC supports both DS8700 and DS8800.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

Licensed Machine Code

All features and functions in this announcement are supported on the IBM System Storage DS8000 series and require DS8000 licensed machine code as follows:

Some DS8000 series features and functions may not be available or supported in all environments. Current information on supported environments, prerequisites, and minimum operating system levels is available online at

http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/support/storage/config/ssic

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 DS8800 and DS8700 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 DS8800 and DS8700 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 DS8800 and DS8700 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

Key server planning is a customer responsibility. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8800 and DS8700 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. and IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager V1.1.

Program

5698-B35    1.1.0   IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for z/OS
5698-B42    1.1.0   IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for Storage

IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager Version 1.1 is a replacement for Encryption Key Manager for V1.0, V2.0, and V2.1. It supports all of the latest z/OS-enabled (or attached) IBM storage - tape and disk. It is designed to be easier to install and upgrade from Encryption Key Manager.

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:

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.
