Description

The IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Solution is designed to incorporate highly specialized software, storage engines (SVC Storage Engines) installed in pairs, a master console, and UPSs. The SAN Volume Controller hardware configuration consists of a cluster of IBM 2145 servers, called SVC Storage Engines. Each SVC Storage Engine is a node; two nodes make up a node pair (I/O Group), and up to four I/O Groups constitute an SAN Volume Controller cluster. The cluster is scalable from one to four node pairs (I/O Groups), and supported by dual read/write cache. This design is intended to avoid single points of failure and support concurrent maintenance.

IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Storage Engine: The SVC Storage Engine (2145 Model 8G4) is based on the IBM System x3550, has an 8-GB cache, and 4-Gbps host bus adapter (HBA) for attachment to the SAN. The Model 8G4 auto-negotiates the fabric speed on a per-port basis and is not restricted to run at the same speed as other node pairs in the cluster.

The 2145 Model 8G4 may be added in pairs to an existing cluster of Model 4F2, Model 8F2, Model 8F4, or Model 8G4 engines, up to the maximum of four node pairs.

One UPS — single (#8115) must also be ordered for each SVC Storage Engine. For more details, refer to the replacements information, below.

The SVC Storage Engine is shipped with preloaded SVC Storage Software V4.2 (ordered separately). The SAN Volume Controller hardware will not ship without a companion order for the software. For a description of the software and ordering procedures, refer to Software Announcement 207-105 , dated May 22, 2007.

The storage engines must be installed in pairs to provide load sharing and failover protection. Four optical fiber cables are required by each engine in the cluster for connection to the Fibre Channel Switches in the SAN. These cables are not provided as part of the engine, but may be ordered by feature number.

Each SVC Storage Engine has an Ethernet port for connection via Ethernet LAN to the master console, that provides configuration and error reporting. These connections need to be aggregated together through an Ethernet hub or switch. The Ethernet hub or switch and cabling are not included as part of the SAN Volume Controller.

Model 8G4 engines can typically replace all earlier models of the SVC Storage Engines in a cluster without disrupting applications running on the hosts. If you wish to have the new nodes replace existing nodes in an existing configuration, feature number 3905 must be ordered for one, and only one, of the replacement nodes that are being ordered. Feature number 3905 directs the CE to remove the old nodes from the existing rack.

Master Console (#4001 or #4002)

The master console is used as a platform for all the configuration, management, and service software required to manage the SAN Volume Controller. The hardware feature (#4001) is a rack-mounted server that includes a keyboard and monitor. The master console, monitor, and keyboard (#4001) occupy a 2U space in the rack. Its preloaded software provides the following functions:

  • "Remote Service" capability via IBM Virtually On-Site
  • SAN Volume Controller CLI support for configuration
  • SAN Volume Controller configuration using the SAN Volume Controller Console

The Master Console — Software (#4002) provides the same function, but is a software-only alternative feature and must be installed on equivalent customer-provided hardware that meets minimum requirements.

The master console includes IBM and non-IBM Licensed Machine Code. Use is subject to the terms of the applicable licenses.

The master console is ordered as a feature of the first SVC Storage Engine of the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Solution. It is required for each SAN containing IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Solutions. Additional or subsequent SAN Volume Controllers, within an SAN, can share the master console.

A master console, or a system with a supported browser that can access the SVC GUI on the master console through the customer's network, must be placed within 30 feet of the SAN Volume Controller clusters to be serviced, for use by IBM SSRs performing service activities.

A power cord to connect the master console to a standard Power Distribution Unit (PDU) (for feature number 4001 only) ships standard with the master console. If the master console will not be installed in a rack with a PDU, a country-specific power cord must be ordered with feature number 4001 to connect to an alternate power source.

License Information for programs furnished with the Master Console (#4001 or #4002) is shipped with the master console.

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): In the event of a power failure, the UPS is designed to provide temporary power to allow the SVC Storage Engine to begin node shut down gracefully. Shut down includes saving the contents of the cache and cluster information to the internal disk drive of each node.

The UPS monitors the condition of its battery to enable planned maintenance actions to be performed. Each UPS provides an independent source of power to the node to which it is connected. It must not be used for any other purpose.

The UPS — single feature (#8115) provides one UPS for one SVC Storage Engine of the SAN Volume Controller cluster. One UPS — single (#8115) must be ordered for each engine of a cluster, both for the initial engine (#3001) and for additional engines (#3002).

Each UPS — single (#8115) requires a 200-240 V, minimum 5 amp power source; the UPS — single (#8115) is protected by its own 10 amp circuit breaker. UPSs of a node pair (I/O group) should be connected to separate circuits to provide added redundancy.

A power cord to connect the UPS to a standard PDU ships standard with the UPS. A country-specific power cord to connect to an alternate power source must also be ordered with the UPS.

This feature is both plant and field installed.

UPS replacement information: The SVC Storage Engine is not supported by the old UPS (#8100), used with 2145 Model 4F2. One UPS — single (#8115) must be ordered for each replacement SVC Storage Engine when replacing a Model 4F2 powered by feature number 8100. This is true even if the existing cluster has additional UPS capacity. If the existing cluster has two or six nodes, powered by the original UPS (#8100), there is unused UPS capacity to add Model 4F2 nodes without requiring additional UPS. However, since feature number 8100 will not support SVC Storage Engine nodes, they will require the UPS — single (#8115).

Redundant AC Power (#8300)

This is an optional feature that is designed to enhance reliability by accepting power from two separate circuits. Each Redundant AC Power switch may be used to provide power to one or two SVC UPSs (#8115). The preferred configuration is one Redundant AC Power switch for each SVC UPS (each SVC storage engine). If two SVC UPSs are powered by a single Redundant AC Power switch, the 2 nodes must not be in the same I/O group. In the event of the failure of either of the input circuits, power continues to be provided to the SVC UPSs by the redundant circuit.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

The following features support use by people with disabilities:

  • Controls and latches are operable with one hand and minimal dexterity.
  • The keys on the panel are tactilely discernible without activating them.

Specifying feature #0019 will verify that no software is to be ordered, that is, that a software license is already in effect for a cluster installed at the customer site. This feature is plant-installed only and is mutually exclusive of feature numbers 0017 and 0018.

Engines

Initial Storage Engine (#3001): Feature number 3001 is used to indicate the first SVC Storage Engine of a new SAN Volume Controller cluster. It must be included for one, and only one, SVC Storage Engine in a new cluster order. An order for the SVC Storage Software V4.2 (5639-VC4) must be placed when feature number 3001 is ordered. This feature also provides the publications included with the first SVC Storage Engine in the cluster. This feature is plant installed only.

Additional Storage Engine (#3002): Feature number 3002 is used to indicate all additional SVC Storage Engines of an SAN Volume Controller cluster and for all SVC Storage Engines to be added to an existing (already installed) SAN Volume Controller cluster. When ordered as part of a new cluster, the number must be an odd number (1, 3, 5, or 7); when ordered to add to an existing cluster, the number must be even (2, 4, or 6). This feature is plant installed only.

SVC engine removal (#3905): Feature number 3905 indicates that installed engines are to be removed from the rack by an IBM Customer Engineer. This feature should be specified only for an engine that is intended to replace a currently installed engine. The feature may be specified for only one replacement engine per order of replacements.

Master Console (#4001): Feature number 4001 provides the master console for an SAN Volume Controller. The master console is an optional feature, but must be included in an order for the initial (first) SVC Storage Engine of the first SAN Volume Controller installed in an SAN. An SAN may have multiple SAN Volume Controllers installed and "managed" by just one master console.

This feature includes IBM and non-IBM Licensed Machine Code. Use is subject to the terms of the applicable licenses.

Each master console includes a power (line) cord that will allow connection to a rack PDU. An optional country-specific power cord, specified by feature number, may also be ordered with the initial SVC Storage Engine order if a PDU is not used.

This feature is both plant and field installable.

Master Console — Software (#4002): Provides a master console software CD kit. This feature provides the software to manage the cluster; it is the equivalent of the software preloaded on feature number 4001. If this feature is selected, a customer-supplied equivalent server with the following characteristics must be provided.

  • Hardware:
    • One dual core Xeon processor, minimum 2.1 GHz
    • Minimum of 4 GB of system memory
    • Two IDE hard disk drives, minimum 160 GB each
    • CD-ROM drive

Cables

5 m Fiber Optic Cable LC-LC (#5305): This feature provides one 5-meter, fiber optic cable with LC connectors on each end. Four of this feature may be ordered with each SVC Storage Engine.

This feature is both plant and field installable.

25 m Fiber Opt Cable LC-LC (#5325): This feature provides one 25-meter, fiber optic cable with LC connectors on each end. Four of this feature may be ordered with each SVC Storage Engine.

This feature is both plant and field installable.

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) (#8115): In the event of a power failure, the UPS can provide temporary power while the contents of the SAN Volume Controller cache and cluster information is written to the internal disk drive of each node of the SAN Volume Controller. The UPS monitors the condition of its battery to enable planned maintenance actions to be performed. Each UPS provides an independent source of power to the node to which it is connected. It must not be used for any other purpose.

The UPS — single feature (#8115) provides one UPS for one SVC Storage Engine of the SAN Volume Controller cluster. For orders of a new SAN Volume Controller cluster (includes an initial engine, feature number 3001) running SVC Storage Software V2, or later, placed after May 10, 2005, one UPS — single (#8115) must be ordered for each engine of the cluster, both for the initial engine (#3001) and for additional engines (#3002).

Each UPS — single (#8115) requires a 200-240 V, minimum 5 amp power source; the UPS — single (#8115) is protected by its own 10 amp circuit breaker. UPSs of a node pair (I/O group) should be connected to separate circuits to provide added redundancy.

This feature may be mixed with UPS feature number 8100 in an SAN Volume Controller configuration only for configurations running SVC Storage Software V2, or later. For configurations running SVC Software V1, UPS feature number 8100 must be used; V1 does not support feature number 8115.

For clusters of two or six engines, the use of UPS — single (#8115) may result in a lower-price solution. UPS feature number 8100 supported up to four nodes.

A power cord to connect the UPS to a standard PDU ships as standard with the UPS. A country-specific power cord to connect to an alternate power source must also be ordered with the UPS.

This feature is both plant- and field-installed only.

Redundant AC Power (#8300): Each Redundant AC Power switch is designed to enhance reliability by accepting power from two separate circuits. Each Redundant AC Power switch may be used to provide power to one or two SVC UPSs (#8115). The preferred configuration is one Redundant AC Power switch for each SVC UPS (each SVC storage engine). If two SVC UPSs are powered by a single Redundant AC Power switch, the two nodes must not be in the same I/O group. In the event of the failure of either of the input circuits, power continues to be provided to the SVC UPSs by the redundant circuit.

This feature is designed to provide power to UPS feature number 8115 only; it must not be used for any other purpose.

Each of the two power sources are required to be 200-240 V, minimum 5 amp, 50/60 Hz, single phase, and to have IEC320-C19 type outlets. The power cable (cord), between the Redundant AC Power switch and each connected SVC UPS, is rated at 10 amps.

Each input circuit for the Redundant AC Power switch must be protected by a circuit breaker with maximum rating of 16 amps. Where the Redundant AC Power switch is used to supply a single UPS, a circuit breaker with a minimum rating of 5 amps is required; if two UPSs are being powered then a breaker with a minimum rating of 7 amps is required.

Power cords to connect the Redundant AC Power switch to a standard PDU ships standard with the switch. The Redundant AC Power switch connects to a rack PDU only. There are no separate country specific power cords for the switch.

This optional feature is both plant and field installable.

Ethernet connection: Every SAN Volume Controller must be connected via Ethernet to a master console. Multiple clusters can be managed by a single master console, therefore, at least the first cluster installed in an SAN must include a Master Console (#4001 or #4002).

Fibre Channel and Ethernet cabling is not included as part of the hardware provided by IBM. These are the responsibility of the customer. Each SVC Storage Engine requires four fiber optic cables. Fiber optic cables may be optionally ordered with the SVC Storage Engines by feature number.

Software requirements

The SVC Storage Engines require that SVC Storage Software V4.2 (5639-VC4), or later, be ordered at the same time the initial order for the engines of a cluster is placed.

The software can be ordered via the AAS ordering system or the Passport Advantage system. The appropriate hardware feature (#0017 for Passport Advantage, #0018 for AAS) must be included in the hardware order for the initial engine to be installed at a customer location, that indicates the desired fulfillment system. For subsequent clusters for the same customer location, feature number 0019 should be indicated on the order. Only one software order and license is required for each customer location.

For additional details, refer to Software Announcement 207-105 , dated May 22, 2007.

Master Console — Software (#4002) requirements:

This feature requires a customer-supplied server operating with the following software:

  • Antivirus software (not required, but strongly recommended)
  • Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer with the most recent Service Pack
  • Microsoft Windows operating system
    • Microsoft Windows 2000 Server Edition with Service Pack 4, or later
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition

Limitations: The IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Solution is designed to support up to 2 petabytes (PB) of storage. The maximum number of SVC Storage Engines supported in an SAN Volume Controller cluster is eight.

For limitations of the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Solution, imposed by the SVC Storage Software, refer to Software Announcement 207-105 , dated May 22, 2007.

Additional limitations and configuration guidelines may apply, as documented in the master console README file, furnished publications for this product, or as listed under Configuration Requirements and Guidelines at

Planning information

Customer responsibilities: One 220 V power source is required for each UPS feature. Use of separate, independent circuits for the power sources for each node of a node pair is recommended to enhance redundancy within the system.

Redundant AC Power (#8300)

Each of the two power sources are required to be 200-240 V, minimum 5 amp, 50/60 Hz, single phase, and to have IEC320-C19 type outlets.

Each input circuit for the Redundant AC Power switch must be protected by a circuit breaker with maximum rating of 16 amps. Where the Redundant AC Power switch is used to supply a single UPS, a circuit breaker with a minimum rating of 5 amps is required; if two UPSs are being powered then a breaker with a minimum rating of 7 amps is required.

SVC engine removal (#3905)

The SVC engine removal feature should be considered if the engines being ordered will be installed as replacements for currently installed engines. This feature allows the IBM Customer Engineer to physically remove the old engine from its rack.
