Overview

The seemingly insatiable demand for better information being driven by today's competitive, e-business-oriented business environment is increasing the demand for improved access to data. Business realities also dictate that data be provided and managed for the lowest total cost possible.

The IBM TotalStorage™ Enterprise Storage Server™ (ESS) Model 800, the third generation of IBM intelligent storage, sets yet another milestone in ESS functionality, flexibility, performance, and overall value available to meet today's storage requirements. As demands for data increase, so must not only storage capacity, but accessibility from heterogeneous server environments. As business transaction volumes increase, storage throughput and response time must scale to meet increasingly demanding quality of service agreements. As SANs migrate to 2 Gigabit (2 Gb) technology, storage should be able to exploit this bandwidth. As faster disk drive technology, spinning at 15,000 rpm, and combinations of RAID technology are brought to the marketplace, storage administrators need to be able to configure solutions that best meet business needs.

The new ESS Model 800 is designed to address all these requirements while helping to protect investments you have already made in servers, SANs, software, storage hardware, and advanced functions. The Model 800 is designed to provide performance, scalability, and flexibility while supporting 24 x 7 operations to help provide the access and protection demanded by today's business environment, and delivering the flexibility and centralized management needed to lower long-term costs.

The Model 800 integrates a new generation of hardware, including faster SMPs with an optional Turbo feature, 64 GB cache, double internal bandwidth, and 2 Gb Fibre Channel/FICON™ Host Adapters. This new hardware, in addition to RAID 10 support and 15,000 rpm drives, enables the Model 800 to deliver excellent levels of performance and throughput.

To protect your current ESS investment, the following additional ESS enhancements are available:

  • 18.2 and 36.4 GB disk eight-packs with 15,000 rpm drives on the Models E10 and E20
  • Feature conversions to exchange existing disk eight-packs for the higher capacity or higher rpm disk eight-packs on the Models E10 and E20
  • Additional disk eight-pack feature conversions on the Models F10 and F20

Key Prerequisites

The ESS Model 800 supports all features and functions as indicated in this announcement and requires ESS LIC level 2.0.0, or later.

Support for the 15,000 rpm drives and disk eight-pack feature conversions on the Exx and Fxx models requires ESS LIC level 1.5.2, or later.

Description

The ESS Model 800 — The Third Generation of IBM Intelligent Storage

The ESS Model 800 is the third generation of the ESS and builds upon the functionality, stability, reliability, and proven track record of the earlier models.

The Model 800 integrates a new generation of hardware, including a new processor (with an optional Turbo feature), 64 GB cache, 2 GB Non Volatile Storage (NVS), increased internal bandwidth, and 2 Gb Fibre Channel/FICON Host Adapters. This new hardware, when combined with RAID 10 support and 15,000 rpm drives, enables the Model 800 to deliver excellent levels of performance and throughput.

The Model 800 supports up to 27.9 TB of physical capacity that can be configured as RAID 5, RAID 10, or a combination of both. RAID 5 remains a price/performance leader, offering excellent performance for most customer applications, while RAID 10 can offer better performance for selected applications. Price, performance, and capacity can further be optimized to meet specific application and business requirements through the intermix of 18.2, 36.4, and 72.8 GB drives operating at 10,000 and 15,000 rpm.

Yet with all this, the fundamental design of the ESS remains unchanged. The Model 800 supports 24 x 7 operations with a design that avoids single points of failure by providing component redundancy. The Model 800 also maintains the advanced functions that deliver business continuance solutions (FlashCopy™, PPRC, PPRC Extended Distance, and XRC), as well as FICON, Parallel Access Volumes (PAV), multiple allegiance, and I/O priority queuing to offer great performance in the IBM eServer zSeries and S/390® environments.

The Model 800 Delivers Excellent Levels of Performance and Throughput

The Model 800 provides significantly increased throughput and improved response times relative to the Model F20. The Model 800 delivers up to 2 times the throughput of the Model F20, and with the optional Turbo processor feature, up to 2.5x the throughput of the Model F20 can be achieved. This allows you to scale the Model 800 to twice as large as the Model F20 — and still achieve better response times!

In addition to the response time and scalability improvements provided for database workloads, the Model 800 also offers significant improvements for applications requiring high sequential bandwidth. When combined with other IBM performance innovations such as FICON, PAV, and I/O priority queueing, batch job elapsed times can be decreased by 50% or more. And, improvements in per fibre port throughput and total box throughput can help enable the consolidation of data from digital media, business intelligence, data warehousing, and life sciences applications into fewer systems.

Key features and new performance enhancements of the Model 800 include:

  • Updated hardware provides response time improvements up to 40% for important database applications.
  • Optional Turbo processor feature provides up to 2.5 times the throughput of the Model F20 for increased scalability and improved response times.
  • 64 GB cache supports much larger system configurations and increases hit ratios, driving down response times.
  • 3.2 GB/second internal bandwidth provides high sequential throughput for digital media, business intelligence, data warehousing, and life sciences applications.
  • Larger NVS with twice the bandwidth allows greater scalability for write-intensive applications.
  • 2 Gb/second Fibre Channel/FICON host adapters provide doubled per-fibre sustained and instantaneous throughput for both open systems and zSeries environments.
  • RAID 10 provides up to 75% greater throughput for database workloads compared to equal physical capacity configured as RAID 5. While most typical workloads will experience excellent response times with RAID 5, cache-unfriendly applications and applications with high random write content can benefit from the performance offered by RAID 10.
  • 15,000 rpm drives provide up to 80% greater throughput per RAID rank and 40% improved response times as compared to 10,000 rpm drives. This allows you to drive your workloads to significantly higher access densities, while also experiencing improved response times.
  • With up to 125% greater write throughput, PPRC provides excellent response times for a synchronous remote copy solution with random workloads. Additionally, FlashCopy establish and elapsed background copy times can be reduced by up to 50%.
  • Large zSeries logical volumes and large LUNs can be configured without materially compromising performance.

15,000 rpm Drives Offer Additional Levels of Throughput and Performance

The 15,000 rpm drives, which are available in 18.2 and 36.4 GB capacities, offer levels of throughput and performance that can translate into substantial price/performance benefits for the entire system — an ESS populated with eight RAID 5 ranks of 15,000 rpm drives can provide up to 80% greater total system random throughput for a cache standard workload than a comparably configured ESS with 10,000 rpm drives.

These drives can help you drive your workloads at significantly higher access densities (without worrying about performance degradation) and fewer disk drives may be required to achieve high disk utilization rates, which can lead to cost savings. Reduced response times may also be realized, providing shorter batch processing windows or improved productivity because transactions complete more quickly. For example, at a typical access density of 1.0, a response time reduction of up to 25% can be achieved. In more demanding environments, an online transaction processing (OLTP) workload at a relatively stressed access density of 2.5 can enjoy a reduction of up to 40% in response time. These improvements may be even more significant for cache-hostile OLTP workloads.

Flexibility with Support for RAID 5 and RAID 10

With the Model 800, physical capacity can be configured as RAID 5, RAID 10, or a combination of both. RAID 5 remains a price/performance leader, offering excellent performance for most customer applications, while RAID 10 can offer better performance for selected applications, in particular, high random write content applications in the open systems environment. RAID 10 combines RAID 1 (mirroring) with RAID 0 (striping). Each drive within a RAID 10 array is mirrored to a second drive within the array, and to optimize performance, data is striped across the drives within the array.

Customer flexibility is improved with this support. The decision to configure capacity as RAID 5 or RAID 10, as well as the amount of capacity to configure for each type, can be made at any time. RAID 5 and RAID 10 arrays can be intermixed with an ESS (including within an SSA loop) and the physical capacity can be logically reconfigured at a later date (for example, RAID 5 arrays can be reconfigured into RAID 10 arrays). And to further support this flexibility, advanced function licenses (for example, PAV, XRC, PPRC, and FlashCopy) are purchased for the Model 800 based upon the physical capacity of the ESS, thereby reducing the amount of prepurchase planning and decisions, and reducing the need to upgrade as capacity is logically reconfigured.

Extensive Connectivity with 2 Gb Fibre Channel/FICON Support for Higher Performance SANs

The Model 800 follows in the footsteps of the earlier ESS models with extensive connectivity support — including Fibre Channel, FICON, ESCON®, SCSI, iSCSI, and NAS — across a broad range of server environments — including zSeries and S/390, IBM eServer pSeries and RS/6000®, IBM eServer iSeries and AS/400®, IBM eServer xSeries and other Intel®-based servers, Sun, Hewlett-Packard, and Compaq AlphaServer. This rich support of heterogeneous environments and attachments, along with the flexibility to easily partition the ESS storage capacity among the attached environments in any combination using the IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server Specialist (ESS Specialist), helps support storage consolidation requirements and dynamic, changing environments.

The Model 800 further enhances this broad set of connectivity options with support for 2 Gb Fibre Channel and FICON. The 2 Gb Fibre Channel/FICON Host Adapters, which are offered in long-wave and short-wave, auto-negotiate to either 2 Gb or 1 Gb link speeds. The flexibility enables immediate exploitation of the benefits offered by higher performance, 2 Gb SAN-based solutions, while also maintaining compatibility with existing 1 Gb infrastructures. As 2 Gb capability on servers and fabric components is introduced into existing SANs, your investment in ESS fibre adapters is protected and migration is simplified.

Rich Set of Business Continuance Solutions

The Model 800 supports the rich set of previously introduced ESS copy services functions and management tools that can be used to build solutions to help meet business continuance requirements.

FlashCopy is designed to provide a point-in-time copy capability for logical volumes. FlashCopy 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. FlashCopy is an optional feature on the ESS.

Peer-to-Peer Remote Copy (PPRC) is a hardware-based disaster recovery solution designed to provide real-time mirroring of logical volumes within an ESS or between two ESSs that can be located up to 103 km from each other. PPRC is a synchronous copy solution where write operations are completed on both copies (primary and secondary ESS) before they are considered to be done. PPRC is an optional feature on the ESS.

PPRC Extended Distance (PPRC-XD) offers a nonsynchronous long distance copy option whereby write operations to the primary ESS are considered complete before they are transmitted to the secondary ESS. The nonsynchronous operation can result in a "fuzzy copy" at the secondary site; however, through operational procedures, a point-in-time consistent copy at the remote site can be created that is suitable for data migration, backup, and disaster recovery purposes. PPRC-XD can operate at very long distances — distances well beyond the 103 km supported with PPRC synchronous transmissions — with the distance typically limited only by the capabilities of the network and channel extension technologies. PPRC-XD support is included at no additional charge when PPRC is purchased for the Model 800.

Extended Remote Copy (XRC) is a combined hardware and software business continuance solution for the zSeries and S/390 environments providing asynchronous mirroring between two ESSs at global distances. XRC is an optional feature on the ESS.

Concurrent Copy offers another method for creating a point-in-time copy in zSeries and S/390 environments, with the source data fully available for access and update after initiation of the copy operation.

FICON Extends the Performance Benefits of the Model 800

FICON extends the ESS's ability to deliver high bandwidth potential to the logical volumes needing it, when they need it. Older technologies are limited by the bandwidth of a single disk drive or a single ESCON channel, but FICON, working together with other ESS functions, provides a high-speed pipe with multiplexed operation.

New with the Model 800 is an increase in the number of logical paths supported per control unit image (to 256 paths). This increases the number of logical paths for FICON to 4,096 per ESS.

FICON offers increased per-channel bandwidth that supports significant improvements in single stream sequential throughput (as much as two times as compared to ESCON). As a result, elapsed time for batch, data mining, or dump operations can be substantially improved, providing potential relief for customers whose batch or file maintenance windows are constrained.

The data rate offered by FICON during the data transfer portion of response time is more than five times faster than ESCON, which can help improve response time and reduce connect time. The larger the transfer, the greater the typical reduction as a percentage of the total I/O response time. FICON can also help reduce or eliminate the pend time caused by busy director ports. For customers whose ESCON directors are experiencing as much as 45-50% busy conditions, this can provide significant response time reduction.

Whereas ESCON channels can process only one operation at a time, FICON channels can process multiple concurrent data transfers. When used with Parallel Access Volumes (PAV), FICON and PAV work together to allow multiple data transfers to the same volume at the same time over the same channel, providing greater parallelism and bandwidth that can better exploit the maximum bandwidth of the ESS arrays. Another performance advantage offered by FICON is that the ESS accepts multiple channel command words (CCWs) concurrently without waiting for completion of the previous CCW.

Finally, significant performance advantages can be realized by those customers who access their disk systems remotely. FICON helps reduce or eliminate data rate "droop" for distances up to 100 km for both read and write operations by using enhanced data buffering and pacing schemes.

FICON also provides greater simplicity for the channel fabric. With support for more devices per channel (up to 16,384) and more logical subsystems per channel to match the increased channel bandwidth, ESCON channels can be consolidated into FICON channels at the rate of approximately 4:1. A well-configured ESS will typically need no more than eight FICON channel interfaces in order to exploit the bandwidth.

IBM Performance Innovations for the zSeries and S/390 Environments

The Model 800 supports the following previously introduced IBM performance innovations for the zSeries and S/390 environments.

PAV enables a single zSeries or S/390 server to simultaneously process multiple I/O operations to the same logical volume, helping to significantly reduce device queue delays. This is achieved by defining multiple addresses per volume. With Dynamic PAV, the assignment of addresses to volumes can be automatically managed to help the workload meet its performance objectives and minimize overall queuing. PAV is an optional feature on the ESS.

Multiple Allegiance expands the simultaneous logical volume access capability across multiple zSeries or S/390 servers. This function, along with PAV, enables the ESS to process more I/Os in parallel, helping to improve performance and enabling greater use of large volumes.

I/O Priority Queuing allows the ESS to use I/O priority information provided by the z/OS™ or OS/390® Workload Manager to manage the processing sequence of I/O operations.

Flexibility Capacity Option Provides Vast Number of Configurations

Physical capacity for the Model 800 is purchased via pairs of disk eight-packs. A disk eight-pack contains eight disk drives, all of which are of the same capacity (either 18.2, 36.4, or 72.8 GB) and rpm (10,000 or 15,000).

The Model 800 supports the intermix of 18.2, 36.4, and 72.8 GB drives and the intermix of 10,000 rpm and 15,000 rpm drives. With intermix support, a vast number of configuration options are available so price, performance, and capacity can be optimized to meet specific application or business requirements.

For additional flexibility, feature conversions are available to exchange existing disk eight-packs when purchasing new disk eight-packs with higher capacity or higher rpm disk drives.

The Model 800 also supports the ability to purchase an empty Expansion Enclosure, which can be populated with disk eight-packs at a later date.

A Step Ahead Delivers "Storage on Demand"

With A Step Ahead, two additional disk eight-packs (either 18.2, 36.4, or 72.8 GB) are shipped with the ESS, yet you are charged only with a carrying fee. At any time, the Step Ahead capacity can be used by logically configuring the capacity, a nondisruptive activity that does not require any intervention from IBM. Upon logical configuration, you will be charged for the disk eight-packs.

A Step Ahead is designed for customers who have dynamic or unpredictable growth or for those who simply want the assurance that storage capacity will be available when it is needed.

Contact your IBM sales representative or IBM Business Partner to obtain additional information regarding the terms and conditions of this program.

Management Tools and Utilities Improve Administrator Productivity

The Model 800 supports the following previously introduced management tools and utilities.

IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server Master Console (ESS Master Console) Provides Single Point of Control: The Model 800 utilizes the Enterprise Storage Server Network (ESSNet), a dedicated LAN, to support configuration, copy services communications between machines, call home, and remote support capabilities. At the center of the ESSNet is the ESS Master Console, which serves as a single point of control for up to seven ESSs. Multiple ESSNets can also be interconnected and even connected into an enterprise WAN to enable control of the ESSs from a central location, regardless of where the machines may be located.

IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server Specialist (ESS Specialist): The ESS Specialist is a Web-based tool for performing logical configuration and copy services (PPRC and FlashCopy) management functions. The ESS Specialist is accessed via Web browser installed on the ESS Master Console and can be accessed from other locations throughout the enterprise if the ESSNet is connected into the enterprise network. The ESS Specialist is provided with the Model 800, at no additional charge.

IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server Expert (ESS Expert): The ESS Expert provides comprehensive asset, capacity, and performance management information for the ESS. The ESS Expert is an optional software product.

Command Line Interface (CLI) for PPRC and FlashCopy: The CLI enables open systems hosts to invoke and manage FlashCopy and PPRC functions through batch processes and scripts. It provides commands to query the status of ESS volumes and to execute copy services tasks that were previously created using the ESS Specialist. The CLI is provided with the Model 800, at no additional charge, and is supported in the AIX®, DYNIX®/ptx®, HP-UX, NetWare, Solaris, Tru64 UNIX®, Windows NT®, and Windows® 2000 environments.

Subsystem Device Driver (SDD): SDD provides load balancing and enhanced data availability capability in configurations with more than one I/O path between the host server and the ESS. Load balancing can reduce or eliminate I/O bottlenecks that occur when many I/O operations are directed to common devices via the same I/O path. SDD also helps eliminate a potential single point of failure by automatically rerouting I/O operations when a path failure occurs, thereby supporting enhanced data availability capability. SDD is provided with the Model 800, at no additional charge. Both SCSI and Fibre Channel (SCSI-FCP) attachment configurations are supported in the AIX, HP-UX, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Solaris environments.

Technical Information

Specified Operating Environment

Hardware Requirements

The ESS ships with IBM Licensed Internal Code (LIC) that is licensed for use by a customer on a specific machine, designated by serial number, under the terms and conditions of the IBM Customer Agreement or the IBM Agreement for Licensed Internal Code.

Model 800

The Model 800 requires ESS LIC level 2.0.0, or later.

Not all ESS features and functions are available or supported in every environment; current information on supported environments and minimum operating systems levels is available at:

Current information on zSeries, S/390, and open systems servers, operating systems, host adapters, and connectivity products supported by the ESS is available at:

Models F10 and F20

The following require ESS LIC level 1.5.2, or later:

  • Disk eight-pack feature conversions

Models E10 and E20

The following require ESS LIC level 1.5.2, or later:

  • Disk Eight-Pack (15,000 rpm) (#2142/#2143)
  • Disk eight-pack feature conversions

PPRC and PPRC Extended Distance (PPRC-XD)

PPRC must be purchased for both the primary and secondary ESS.

PPRC requires the installation of at least one ESCON® Host Adapter (#3012) on each ESS to provide the communications link between the ESS primary and ESS secondary server. For highest availability offered by the ESS, IBM recommends that more than one ESCON adapter per ESS be used for the PPRC connectivity.

PPRC is supported with the use of ESCON Directors, DWDMs, and channel extenders. A current list of supported environments, configurations, networks, and products is available at:

Vendors should be consulted regarding hardware and software prerequisites when using their products in an ESS PPRC configuration. IBM is not responsible for third-party products.

When using channel extender products with PPRC, the channel extender vendor will determine the maximum distance supported between the primary and secondary ESS. The vendors should be contacted for their distance capability, line quality requirements, and WAN attachment capabilities.

Extended Remote Copy (XRC)

XRC requires a minimum of 16 GB of cache in the ESS Model 800.

When failback from the secondary ESS to the primary ESS is required, XRC must be purchased for both ESSs and if the secondary ESS is a Model 800, it also requires a minimum of 16 GB of cache.

Limitations

The ESS supports the intermix of 10,000 rpm and 15,000 rpm Disk Eight-Pack features subject to the following limitations:

  • For a given capacity, the 15,000 rpm Disk Eight-Pack features (#214x and #215x) cannot be intermixed with 10,000 rpm Disk Eight-Pack features (#212x and #213x) of the same capacity.
    • #2142 and #2152 (18.2 GB, 15,000 rpm) cannot be intermixed with #2122 or #2132 (18.2 GB, 10,000 rpm).
    • #2143 and #2153 (36.4 GB, 15,000 rpm) cannot be intermixed with #2123 or #2133 (36.4 GB, 10,000 rpm).

To install 15,000 rpm Disk Eight-Pack features into an ESS that already contains Disk Eight-Pack features of the same capacity (but at 10,000 rpm), those existing Disk Eight-Pack features must first be converted either to 15,000 rpm Disk Eight-Pack features (of the same capacity) or to Disk Eight-Pack features of a different capacity using the disk eight-pack feature conversions.

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 modelling proposed configurations.

Note: Supported cable types and maximum cable length vary when running Fibre Channel/FICON™ at 1 Gb or 2 Gb link speeds. Refer to the IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server Introduction and Planning Guide for additional information.

Installation Planning: Installation planning is a customer responsibility. Information about planning the installation of your ESS, including equipment, site, and power requirements, can be found in the IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server Introduction and Planning Guide (GC26-7444).

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

During the ESS installation, your disk marketing specialist can help you plan your initial logical configuration, and IBM will apply the logical configuration to the machine.

Following the ESS installation, all modifications to the logical configuration are a customer responsibility and are performed using the IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server Specialist. IBM Global Services (IGS) will also modify the logical configuration (fee-based services).

1
A gigabyte (GB) equals one billion bytes when referring to disk capacity.
2
Effective capacity represents the approximate portion of the Disk Eight-Pack that is usable for customer data. All available capacity may not get fully utilized due to overheads on logical devices and/or a loss of capacity due to a configured set of logical devices. Also note that while this table assumes that arrays map directly to Disk Eight-Packs, arrays are actually created using eight drives of the same type and the drives are not necessarily contained within the same Disk Eight-Pack.
3
In RAID 5 configurations, the parity information utilizes the capacity of one disk, but is actually distributed across all the disks within a given Disk Eight-Pack.
4
Array consists of three data drives mirrored to three copy drives. The remaining drives are used as spares.
5
Array consists of four data drives mirrored to four copy drives.
6
Array consists of six data drives and one parity drive. The remaining drive is used as a spare.
7
Array consists of seven data drives and one parity drive.

Physical Capacity: Physical capacity is calculated by multiplying each Disk Eight-Pack feature by its respective "physical capacity" value shown in Table 1 and then summing the values.

Effective Capacity: The ESS supports the intermix of the following within a Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) loop:

  • 18.2 GB, 36.4 GB, and 72.8 GB Disk Eight-Pack features
  • RAID 5 and RAID 10

The combination and sequence in which Disk Eight-Pack features are purchased, installed, and logically configured will determine the effective capacity of the ESS. The following information can be used to calculate the effective capacity of a given ESS configuration:

  • Disk Eight-Pack installation sequence:
    • Disk Eight-Packs are installed on an SSA loop in pairs, with the first pair of eight-packs installed on the A loop in device adapter (DA) pair number 1, the second pair of eight-packs installed on the A loop in DA pair number 2, and so on.
    • A given set of Disk Eight-Packs are installed in order of the largest capacity to the lowest capacity. A set comprises the group of eight-pack features installed on a new machine during the initial order or a group of eight-pack features ordered on a capacity upgrade.
  • Creation of spares:
    • A unique spare pool is established for each drive capacity on an SSA loop.
      • A spare pool must contain at least two drives.
      • If an SSA loop contains both RAID 5 and RAID 10 arrays, the spare pool may have three drives, depending upon the sequence in which arrays are configured.
    • Spares are always created when the first array on an SSA loop is configured.
      • If the array is configured as RAID 5, one spare is created (6+P array).
      • If the array is configured as RAID 10, two spares are created (3x2 array).
    • Spares will be created when the second array on the SSA loop is configured only if there are not already two spares on the SSA loop.
      • If the first array was configured as RAID 5, additional spares will be created.

        — If the second array is configured as RAID 5, one spare is created (6+P array).

        — If the second array is configured as RAID 10, two spares are created (3x2 array).

      • If the first array was configured as RAID 10, no additional spares are created.
  • The effective capacity for each array type is shown in Table 1.

ESS Advanced Functions

ESS advanced functions are enabled and authorized based upon the physical capacity of the ESS:

  • PAV and XRC:
    • Enablement and authorization must be equal to or greater than the physical capacity within the ESS that will be logically configured as Count Key Data (CKD) volumes for use with zSeries and S/390 servers.
  • PPRC and FlashCopy:
    • Enablement and authorization must be equal to or greater than the total physical capacity of the ESS.

Advanced functions require the selection of ESS Model 800 feature numbers and the purchase of the matching IBM 2240 ESS Function Authorization feature numbers:

  • The ESS Model 800 feature number enables a given function on the ESS at a given capacity level.
  • The ESS Function Authorization feature number authorizes use of the given advanced function at the given capacity level on the ESS machine for which it was purchased.

The ESS Model 800 #8xxx feature numbers and the ESS Function Authorization #8xxx feature numbers are corequisites and must always correspond to one another.
