Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Storwize V7000 introduces new models with 10 GbE ports, to deliver 10 Gigabit iSCSI networks for data. IBM Storwize V7000 10 GbE connectivity allows host systems to connect directly via iSCSI at faster speeds without the need for FC cables or switches and provides the infrastructure for emerging 10 GbE protocols.

IBM Storwize V7000 Disk System 10 GbE Control Enclosure is available in two models:

  • 2076-312 for 3.5-inch drives
  • 2076-324 for 2.5-inch drives

The IBM Storwize V7000 Control Enclosure and up to nine IBM Storwize V7000 Expansion enclosures can be mixed in any combination of the 24-bay or 12-bay models and accommodate SAS, Nearline SAS, and SSD disk drives. The intermixing of these disk drives is supported to provide added versatility.

Leveraging the clustering technology from the SVC, the Storwize V7000 can now seamlessly grow their storage environment through scaling out as well as scaling up. If more performance, scalability and host ports are needed, a second control enclosure can be added to create a clustered system. Using up to 18 expansion enclosures and supporting up to 480 drives, the clustered Storwize V7000 system can deliver up to double the capacity and up to double the throughput of a system built using a single control enclosure.

Warranty period

Three years

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature which replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature is the same as the machine it is installed.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically via an IBM website. Certain Machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country and location-specific information.

CRU Service

IBM provides replacement CRUs to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM upon your request. CRUs are designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU.

Tier 1 (mandatory) CRU

Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation.

Tier 2 (optional) CRU

You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge.

Based upon availability, CRUs will be shipped for next-business-day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies, in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU, whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU. You may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement. The following parts have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

  • Node canister
  • Expansion canister
  • Power supplies
  • Battery back up unit
  • SAS cables
  • Fiber cables
  • Power Cords
  • Disk Drives (including SSDs) in Carrier Assembly
  • SFP transceivers
