Overview
Bottom rule

Enhancements to Global Mirror with the SAN Volume Controller (SVC) V6.3.0 are designed to provide new options to help administrators balance network bandwidth requirements and recovery point objectives for applications, helping to reduce operating costs for disaster recovery solutions. SVC now supports higher recovery point objective (RPO) times providing the option to use a lower-bandwidth link between mirrored sites. This lower-bandwidth remote mirroring uses space-efficient, FlashCopy® targets as sources in remote copy relationships to increase the time allowed to complete a remote copy data cycle. With the ability to remote mirror from one system to the other, customers now have greater flexibility in their expanding environments using both Storwize® V7000 and SAN Volume Controller in remote mirror relationships.

Remote deployments for disaster recovery for current SAN Volume Controller environments can easily be fitted with the Storwize V7000 or vice versa.

Clients are increasingly deploying virtualized servers in high availability configurations, including multi-site clustered implementations. SVC V6.3.0 introduces the ability to extend the distance between SVC nodes in a stretched cluster (split I/O group) configuration. While the extended distances depend on application latency restrictions, this function now enables enterprises to access and share a consistent view of data simultaneously across data centers, and to relocate data across disk array vendors and tiers, both inside and between data centers at full metro distances.

System performance improvements are available with improved management of the I/O paths to attached storage systems. This round-robin method allows more flexibility for data paths and provides greater performance reliability. SVC management functions are now easier to integrate with existing user authentication methods in the customer's data center with native LDAP support.

SVC interoperability now supports additional storage products including IBM XIV® Gen3, HP 3PAR, and Violin Flash Memory Array, and supports additional models for Bull StoreWay, Fujitsu ETERNUS, and Texas Memory Systems RamSan. Interoperability is also available for VMware vSphere 5 and RedHat Enterprise Linux™ 6.

IBM Tivoli® Storage Productivity Center V4.2.2 is a feature-rich, storage management software suite. The integrated suite provides detailed monitoring, reporting, and management within a single console. The IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2.2 suite of distributed products delivers improved time-to-value with storage tiering reporting in Tivoli Common Reporting/Cognos, storage optimization and advanced SAN planning for the IBM Storage System XIV, copy services support for IBM Storage System XIV, and the support for Storwize V7000 Unified solution.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select is now available with V4.2.2. This is Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition on 'per storage device' licensing model and is competitively priced. Also, Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk Midrange Edition is renamed to Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk Select in V4.2.2. The Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select family is designed to license by the number of storage devices managed, and support IBM XIV, Storwize V7000, DS3000, DS4000®, DS5000 as stand-alone devices or when attached to an IBM SVC. The Select family also supports any storage devices that are attached to Storwize V7000.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM System Storage SVC V6.3 highlights include support for extended distance stretched clusters, round-robin data path selection for attached storage, native LDAP support, lower-bandwidth global mirroring, and mirroring between SVC and Storwize V7000. The following functions, features, and support options help support the benefits of the SAN Volume Controller.

Extended distance stretched cluster

SVC V6.3.0 now enables enterprises to access and share a consistent view of data simultaneously across data centers, and to relocate data across disk array vendors and tiers, both inside and between data centers at full metro distances. This is accomplished by extending the supported distance between SVC nodes in a stretched cluster (split I/O group) configuration.

The supported distance will depend on application latency restrictions. For specified operating environment information, visit the Information Center from the support website

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

In this stretched cluster configuration, SVC enables a highly-available stretched volume to be concurrently accessed by servers at both data centers. When combined with server data mobility functions such as VMware vMotion or PowerVM™ Live Partition Mobility, SVC stretched cluster enables nondisruptive storage and virtual machine mobility between the two data centers. Depending on application performance requirements, SVC stretched clusters may be deployed between data centers up to 300 km apart.

SAN Volume Controller stretched clusters may be combined with SVC Metro Mirror or Global Mirror to support a third data center for applications that require both high availability and disaster recovery in a single solution.

Round-robin data paths to attached storage

System performance improvements are available with improved management of the I/O paths to attached storage systems. This round-robin method allows more flexibility for data paths and provides greater performance, especially in the event that a data path goes down.

Native LDAP support

Customers using Microsoft™ Active Directory especially can integrate their LDAP to manage the SAN Volume Controller as part of Version 6.3.0. Existing authentication methods will not be removed. Such helps access provides better security and ease of use in customer environments.

Lower-bandwidth global mirror

Customers who wish to use the global mirror capability with SAN Volume Controller can now do so on a lower-bandwidth link between sites. Remote mirroring with the SAN Volume Controller now supports higher recovery point objective (RPO) times by allowing the data at the disaster recovery site to get further out of sync with the production site if the communication link limits replication, and then approaches synchronicity again when the link is not as busy. This lower-bandwidth remote mirroring uses space efficient FlashCopy targets as sources in remote copy relationships to increase the time allowed to complete a remote copy data cycle.

Remote mirroring between SVC and Storwize V7000

Customers have greater flexibility in their expanding environments using both Storwize V7000 and SAN Volume Controller with the ability now to remote mirror from one system to the other. Remote deployments for disaster recovery for current SAN Volume Controller environments can easily be fitted with the Storwize V7000 or vice versa.

This new function does not affect how Metro/Global Mirror on the SVC or Remote Mirroring on the Storwize V7000 is licensed. You must still license usage for volumes replicated at the source and the target. Because of a difference in metrics, SVC mirroring can be licensed for a subset of the total storage virtualized, but Storwize V7000 mirroring is licensed for the entire storage system.

Added interoperability

SVC now supports many more heterogeneous data center environments with the addition of interoperability support for:

  • RedHat Enterprise Linux 6
  • VMware vSphere 5
  • IBM XIV Gen3
  • Bull StoreWay models 1500, 2000, 3000
  • Fujitsu ETERNUS models DX80 S2, DX90 S2, DX410 S2, and DX440 S2
  • HP 3PAR models F200, F400, T400, and T800
  • Texas Memory Systems RamSan-440
  • Violin Flash Memory Array models 3140 and 3200

It helps monitor, report and manage both file module and block module of the Storwize V7000 unified solution within a single console.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select pricing terminology definition

Storage device

A storage device is a unit of measure by which the program is licensed. A storage device is an independently powered, channel attached device that stores data on magnetic disks or solid state drives, such as disk controllers and their respective expansion units, each constituting separate storage devices.

The licensee must obtain entitlements for every storage device which runs, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the program and for every storage device on which the program is installed. Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, the licensee must obtain entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the storage devices managed by the program.

Customers with 5639-VC6, 5639-SX1, or both licenses are responsible to combine the total terabytes managed for each function from individual SAN Volume Controller License Manager (cluster) reports, to ensure they are within license entitlement for each function.

Installability

Refer to the Software requirements section.

Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express. Product upgrades and technical support are provided by the Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software, and technical support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

Packaging

Refer to the Hardware requirements section.

Security, auditability, and control

The SAN Volume Controller Software V6 uses Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocols to communicate between the SAN Volume Controller cluster and the System Storage Productivity Center (SSPC). Starting with SVC V6.3, the SVC can now use an existing LDAP for authentication (for example, interfacing with Microsoft Active Directory).

Use of supplementary antivirus software is recommended, but not required.

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

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) agreement applies for Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures.

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Volume orders (IVO)

This fee service enhances customer productivity by providing voice or electronic access into the IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option.

While your Software Subscription and Support is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

Software Subscription and Support does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

For additional information about the Passport Advantage Agreement, visit the Passport Advantage website at

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage
