IBM DB2® technology, which is designed to manage data more effectively and efficiently, is used for TS7700 internal database operations. Greater availability is supported through DB2 enhancements such as online, automated database reorganization.

TS7700 Release 3.0 machine code is not supported on TS7740 systems using the TS7740 Cache Controller Model CC6.

Encryption capable systems

TS7700 R3.0 introduces the TS7740 Encryption Capable Base Frame. This encryption capable frame requires the installation of one TS7740 Cache Controller Model CC9 and one TS7740 Server Model V07. The TS7740 Encryption Capable Base Frame, identified by 3952 Model F05 feature #7330, may also include up to Two TS7740 Cache Module Model CX9.

Each Model CC9 provides approximately 9.4 TB of usable capacity, and each Model CX9 provides approximately 9.6 TB of usable capacity. The maximum supported usable capacity of the TS7740 Encryption Capable Base Frame is approximately 28 TB.

TS7700 R3.0 also introduces the TS7720 Encryption Capable Base Frame and the TS7720 Encryption Capable Expansion Frame. These encryption capable frames require the installation of one TS7720 Cache Controller Model CS9. The TS7720 Encryption Capable Base Frame, identified by 3952 Model F05 feature #7331, also requires one TS7720 Server Model VEB and may include up to nine TS7720 Cache Module Model XS9. The TS7720 Encryption Capable Expansion Frame, identified by 3952 Model F05 feature #7332, may also include up to fifteen TS7720 Cache Module Model XS9. The TS7720 Encryption Capable Expansion frame may be attached to any TS7720 Base Frame, identified by 3952-F05 feature #7322, or TS7720 Encryption Capable Base Frame, identified by 3952-F05 feature #7331. When the TS7720 Encryption Capable Expansion Frame is attached to the TS7720 Base Frame (feature #7322), installation of additional TS7720 SATA Cache Module (3956 model XS7) is not permitted. To attach the TS7720 Encryption Capable Expansion Frame to a TS7720 Encryption Capable Base Frame, nine TS7720 Model XS9 must be installed in the base frame.

Each Model CS9 and Model XS9 provides approximately 24 TB of usable capacity. The maximum supported usable capacity of the TS7720 Encryption Capable Base Frame is approximately 240 TB. The maximum supported usable capacity of the TS7720 Encryption Capable Expansion Frame is approximately 384 TB.

Refer to Hardware requirements below for additional configuration requirements of the encryption capable frames, and the configuration requirements of required components.

Disk-based encryption

All TS7700 encryption capable base frames will support encryption for data at rest within the disk cache repositories. When encryption is activated, all user data written to disk cache is encrypted. Encryption provides additional protection for any removed disks that leave the customer account. Replication and remote mount activity move non-encrypted data. Encryption is accomplished through the use of security encryption support within the TS7720 Model CS9 and TS7740 Model CC9 cache controllers. This mechanism uses hardware within each disk drive to provide encryption support.

Disk-based encryption is activated with the purchase and installation of the "Enable Disk Encryption" feature #5272 on the TS7720 Server Model VEB installed in the TS7720 Encryption Capable Base Frame, or on the TS7740 Server Model V07 installed in the TS7740 Encryption Capable Base Frame. Additionally, each disk model installed in the system requires the "Encryption" feature #7404 to be purchased and installed. The "Enable Disk Encryption" and "Encryption" features may be installed with the initial system installation, or they may be purchased and installed at a later date. When disk-based encryption is enabled on a system already in use, all previously written user data is encrypted retroactively.

Disk-based encryption may not be enabled on TS7720 Encryption Capable Expansion Frames attached to TS7720 Base Frames, identified by 3952 Model F05 feature #7322.

Encryption keys for disk-based encryption are managed internally within the TS7700 system. Interactions with external key management systems are not supported for disk-based encryption in Release 3.0. Physical tape encryption continues to use external key management systems.

Support for up to 4 million logical volumes

The ability to support up to 4 million logical volumes is available in R3.0. Only TS7740 Model V07 and TS7720 Model VEB servers will support more than 2 million volumes. Support for up to 1 million logical volumes is included in R3.0 base functionality. To add support for additional logical volumes, increments of feature #5270 may be installed on the TS7700 Server. Each increment of feature #5270 provides support for 200,000 logical volumes. Up to five feature #5270 may be installed on a TS7720 Model VEA or TS7740 Model V06 server, for a maximum of 2 million logical volumes. Feature #9461, 8 GB Memory Upgrade - Plant, or #3461, 8 GB Memory Upgrade - Field, is required on any Model VEA or Model V06 server supporting between 1 million and 2 million logical volumes. Up to fifteen feature #5270 may be installed on a TS7720 Model VEB or TS7740 Model V07 server. The following restrictions will apply:

The TS7700 family of systems combines disk storage and the unique performance and capacity of 3592 Tape Drives (in the TS7740) to help reduce the total cost of ownership of tape solutions for System z environments. The TS7700 Virtualization Engine tape solution is well suited for:

The TS7700 is designed to provide the following benefits:

The TS7700 incorporates extensive self-management capabilities consistent with IBM on demand initiatives. These capabilities are designed to help reduce the cost of a TS7700 solution and avoid the potential impact of human errors. A TS7700 can help improve the efficiency of mainframe tape operations by efficiently using disk storage, tape capacity, and tape speed, and by providing a large number of tape addresses. These benefits help make the TS7700 a suitable repository for local and remote backups, and archival data with near continuous data protection with automated failover and recovery.

The TS7740 model uses disk storage with the performance and capacity of TS1140 tape drives to help reduce the total cost of ownership of tape solutions for System z environments. The TS7720 model uses large capacity disk drives to provide high capacity repositories for customers with rapid recall requirements.

Multiple interconnected TS7700 systems (called clusters) use the Grid Communication feature for business continuance through metro and global volume replication. With the Grid Communication feature, a TS7700 system operates in a grid configuration by interconnecting up to six TS7700s and automatically maintains one to six volume replicas within the grid providing a flexible set of options for business continuance and hierarchal storage management. The redundant components of the TS7700 grid configuration can be separated, thus making it an excellent option for replication and disaster recovery, as well as local and metro availability. If you have, or plan to have, a GDPS operation, a TS7700 cluster is compatible with GDPS and is well suited for the tape workload because of its remote replication capability. Alternatively, the entire TS7700 cluster can be used in a local environment to help improve data availability and recoverability.
