TS7500 supported functions

The following functions are supported in the Virtualization Engine TS7500 solution with Virtualization Engine TS7500 Software V2.1.

  • Network replication: Copies a complete virtual volume from one TS7500 Virtualization Engine to another across an IP network. At prescribed intervals, when the tape is not in use, changed data from the primary virtual tape is transmitted to the replica resource on the target Model CV6 Virtualization Engine so that they are synchronized. The target Model CV6 Virtualization Engine is usually located at a remote location. Under normal operation, backup clients do not have access to the replica resource on the target server. If a disaster occurs and the replica is needed, the administrator can promote the replica to become the primary virtual tape so that clients can access it.
  • Network compression: Uses software compression on data that is transferred across an IP network during a network replication. Network compression improves overall bandwidth between two TS7500 Virtualization Engines that are replicating virtual volumes, because the data will be compressed before being sent over the IP network.
  • Network encryption: Secures data transmission over the network during replication. Initial key distribution is accomplished using the authenticated Diffie-Hellman exchange protocol. Subsequent session keys are derived from the master shared secret, making it very secure.
  • Failover and failback: Failover supports high availability for TS7500 solution operations, and can help eliminate the down time that can occur, should a TS7500 Virtualization Engine fail. In the TS7500 solution failover design, a TS7500 Virtualization Engine is configured to monitor another TS7500 Virtualization Engine. In the event that the Virtualization Engine being monitored fails to fulfill its responsibilities to the SAN clients it is serving, the monitoring TS7500 Virtualization Engine will take over its identity. When this happens, the worldwide node names and IP addresses associated with the failed TS7500 Virtualization Engine are transferred to the surviving TS7500 Virtualization Engine. The Failback occurs when the system has recovered.
  • Secure tape: Uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, an agency of the U.S. government. With this option, you can create one or more keys that can be used to encrypt the data when it is exported to physical tape and decrypt when it is imported back to virtual tapes. Encryption helps make the data on the tape unreadable, unless the appropriate key is used.
  • Local replication: Copies a complete virtual volume in the same TS7500 Virtualization Engine. Local replication is the same as network replication, except the target and source servers are the same.
  • NDMP backup: Enables backup applications and NAS devices to perform backup and restore using the NDMP V4 protocol over an IP network. The TS7500 solution acts as an NDMP server, centralizing management while eliminating locally attached tape devices from each NAS device. When a backup occurs, data is moved from a NAS device directly to the virtual library. NDMP requires hosted backup.
  • iSCSI: Enables SCSI commands to be used over an IP network and hosts to connect via Ethernet instead of Fibre Channel.
  • Hosted backup: Makes virtual tape libraries and drives available to local systems by allowing backup applications to be installed directly onto the TS7500 Virtualization Engine, eliminating the need for a dedicated backup server.
  • Control path failover and data path failover: Enables automatic control path failover to a preconfigured redundant path without aborting the current job in progress. It also provides failover for multiple redundant paths in a SAN environment by automatically providing error recovery to retry the current operation using an alternate, preconfigured paths without aborting the current job in progress. This can provide flexibility in SAN configuration, availability, and management.
  • Console and capacity support: Management console and capacity support is offered on a tiered, per TB basis for customers ordering the Enterprise Edition. It includes the Virtualization Engine TS7520 Management Console program as well as entitlement to use the available disk capacity.

    Approximately 6.5 TB of management console and capacity support are required for every TS7520 Cache Controller and TS7520 Cache Module allocated to the TS7520 Virtualization Engine applicable to each 5697-N65 license.

Virtual tape library functions: The TS7500 solution can assist you with infrastructure simplification by enabling multiple disparate backup servers and applications to share the same physical resources. This can help reduce the need for multiple tape libraries and improve the overall utilization of the tape storage systems. The TS7500 can present up to 512 distinct virtual library images.

The following devices can be emulated in the TS7500 virtual tape library, supported by the TS7520 Cache Controller and Cache Module:

  • IBM TS3500 Tape Library with TS1120 Model J1A/EO5 Tape Drives or Model E05 or IBM Ultrium 2 or 3 Tape Drives

Product positioning

The Virtualization Engine TS7520 solution is a high-performance, high-capacity open systems virtual tape solution designed to augment the tape backup and restore process in large tape environments. The TS7520 solution can aid in the tape backup and restore process by helping to give you significant operational and throughput efficiencies via tape virtualization, namely:

  • Backup window reduction
  • Restore time reduction
  • Data sharing and ease of resource virtualization
  • High availability options
  • Integrated server, disk, and tape solution for IT Optimization

The TS7520 solution is a tape virtualization solution for open systems attachment over Fibre Channel interfaces. It can help support significant operational efficiencies by storing recent data in the TS7520 solution disk cache. As data ages, the older data may be migrated to real tape for longer-term storage. Because data is now written to virtual tape via the disk cache, heavy daily tape drive usage can be greatly reduced.

A TS7520 solution equipped with one TS7520 model CV6 Virtualization Engine has four Fibre Channel ports available for host or tape attachment. A TS7520 solution equipped with two TS7520 model CV6 Virtualization Engines has eight Fibre Channel ports available for host or tape attachment. With eight Fibre Channel interfaces a TS7520 solution can connect up to four ports directly to the tape SAN.

The TS7520 solution differs from many other open systems virtual tape offerings. It enables either direct tape attachment or parallel tape attachment. Direct tape attachment refers to real tape drives or libraries that are physically attached to the TS7520 solution. Parallel tape attachment refers to real tape drives or libraries that are attached to the host server; data is transferred from the TS7520 solution through the host server to real tape drives or libraries that are physically attached to the host server. The TS7520 solution can help reduce the backup window in many installations. Because robotic movement, tape load/thread, and physical tape search and rewind are greatly reduced in virtual tape, effective use of the Fibre Channel interfaces is high. That means more tape jobs can be run to virtual tape over a single interface than to real tape. If the backup window is reduced, the time allowed for migration to real tape is increased, potentially reducing the number of real tape drives needed for longer-term backup data storage.

Terms and conditions

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 IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Agreement: IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information (LI) document and PoE govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

This software license includes Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance: The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) agreement applies for maintenance and does not require customer signatures.

Limited warranty: 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. Consult the IBM Software Support Guide for further information at

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 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.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer: You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.
