Description

The IBM System Storage N7600 storage controllers are designed to interoperate with products capable of data transmission in the industry-standard iSCSI, CIFS, FCP and NFS protocols. These include the IBM System p™, IBM System i™ (NFS only), IBM System x™, and IBM System z™ (NFS only) servers. The N7600 storage controllers consist of the Model  A10 and Model A20, and associated software.

The Model A10 is designed to provide a single-node storage controller with iSCSI support, and NFS, CIFS, and FCP support via optional features. The N7600 is a 6U storage controller that must be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack. The N7600 storage controller does not include storage in the base chassis. The base chassis includes:

  • Two AMD 2.6 GHz Opteron processors
  • 16 GB of DDR-333 memory
  • 512 MB of non-volatile random access memory (NVRAM)
  • Six integrated Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 ports
  • Eight integrated 2 Gbps Fibre Channel ports
  • Dual redundant hot-plug integrated power supplies and cooling fans
  • Three PCI-X expansion slots for additional FC HBAs or Gigabit Ethernet (NICs)
  • Five PCIe expansion slots
  • One serial console port

The maximum number of additional expansion adapters is eight. One expansion slot is used for the standard (included with the N7600) 512 MB NVRAM adapter card. The Model A10 can be upgraded to a maximum of eight multipath (loop A and loop B) FC loops (six 2-Gbps FC ports) via the addition of four optional FC HBAs for Disk Attachment (feature number 1014). The eight loops will support a maximum of 672 total disk drives. The Model A10 can be upgraded to a maximum of 14 Gigabit Ethernet ports via the addition of two optional quad-port copper Gigabit (NICs) (feature number 1009). The Model A10 may be upgraded to a Model A20. The upgrade from a Model A10 to a Model A20 is a disruptive upgrade.

The Model A20 is designed to provide identical function as the N7600 Model A10, but with the addition of a second processing node and the Clustered Failover (CFO) licensed function. The Model A20 also supports a maximum of 840 drives, 32 GB of DDR-333 memory, and eight backend Fiber Channel loops. The Model A20 consists of four processors that are designed to provide failover and failback function, helping improve overall availability. For the Model A20, each node is a 6U rack-mountable storage controller. Therefore, the Model A20 occupies a total of 12U of rack space.

The Model A20 includes:

  • Four AMD 2.6 GHz Opteron processors
  • 32 GB of DDR-333 memory
  • 1 GB of NVRAM
  • 12 integrated Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 ports
  • 16 integrated 2 Gbps FC ports
  • Dual redundant hot-plug integrated power supplies and cooling fans
  • Six PCI-X expansion slots for additional FC HBAs or Gigabit Ethernet NICs
  • 10 PCIe expansion slots
  • Two serial console ports

For the Model A20, the maximum number of additional expansion adapters is ten. The Model A20 can be upgraded to a maximum of 10 multipath (loop A and loop B) FC loops (20 2-Gbps FC ports) via the addition of 2 optional FC HBAs for Disk Attachment (feature number 1014). The Model A20 can up upgraded to a maximum of 20 Gigabit Ethernet ports via the addition of four optional quad-port copper Gigabit Ethernet NICs (feature number 1009).

The physical proximity of the two processing nodes within a Model A20 (with respect to each other) is determined by which Infiniband cluster interconnect cables are ordered (feature numbers 1037, 1038, 1039, 1040, and 1041). Optical cables, #1040 and #1041, also require feature number 1042.

The N7600 storage controller Models A10 and A20 require at least one storage expansion unit, either an EXN1000 or an EXN2000. The EXN1000 storage expansion unit provides a 3U rack-mountable disk enclosure containing four and up to a maximum of 14, serial advanced technology attachment (SATA) disk drives, either in 250 GB or 500 GB physical capacities. The EXN2000 storage expansion unit provides a 3U rack-mountable disk enclosure containing 5 and up to a maximum of 14, FC disk drives. The EXN2000 supports the following FC disk drive speeds and capacities:

  • 15,000 revolutions per minute (15K RPM) in 72 GB and 144 GB capacities
  • 10,000 revolutions per minute (10K RPM) in 72 GB, 144 GB, and 300 GB capacities

Each EXNx000 storage expansion unit contains a maximum of 14 disk drives, all of a particular type (rotational speed and capacity). For the initial order of the IBM System Storage N7600, you may not include EXNx000 storage expansion units containing more than two types (rotational speed and capacity) of disk drives.

The maximum raw storage capacity of the N7600 system is determined only by the number of disk drives supported. The N7600 Model A10 supports 672 hard drive spindles; Model A20 supports 840 (regardless of capacity).

The following table describes the maximum supported total physical storage capacity for the N7600 Model A10:

This feature should not be used for any other #7xxx licensed function transactions. It is not required when adding additional #7xxx licensed functions to an installed N7600.

Configuration specify features

Feature #9557, #9558, and #9559 must be specified to verify that sufficient Fibre Channel ports (and sufficient FC HBA for Disk, Dual-port adapters, #1014) are included in the initial order for an N7600 storage controller.

For a Model A10, the maximum number of feature #9557 that may be specified is eight and the total number of feature #9558 and #9559 may not exceed ten.

For a Model A20, the maximum number of feature #9557 that may be specified is 32 and the total number of features #9558 and #9559 may not exceed ten.

Number of FC Target Ports (#9557): This no-charge feature specifies the number of onboard Fibre Channel ports that are to be configured as FCP target ports. Target ports added via feature number 1017 must not be included in this number. FCP target ports are used for Fibre Channel attachment of the N7600 to application servers (containing Fibre Channel HBAs) or to Fibre Channel storage area networks.

This feature is only relevant if you intend to use the Fibre Channel Protocol feature on the N7600. For a Model A10, valid choices are 0, 2, 4, and 8. For a Model A20, valid choices are 0, 4, 8, and 16.

Number of FC Storage Loops (#9558): This no-charge feature specifies, on the initial order of an N7600 storage controller, the number of dual-path Fibre Channel storage loops that are to be configured for the attachment of EXN2000 storage expansion units. The EXN2000 expansion units, included in the initial order, will be distributed across the specified number of storage loops.

Number of SATA Storage Loops (#9559): This no-charge feature specifies, on the initial order of an N7600 storage controller, the number of dual-path Fibre Channel storage loops that are to be configured for the attachment of EXN1000 SATA storage expansion units.
