Description

1 TB 7,200 rpm Serial ATA (SATA) drive sets

The DS8000 series now offers 1 TB 7,200 rpm SATA disk drive sets, providing additional price and capacity flexibility to address specific application and business requirements. The 1 TB 7,200 rpm SATA disk drives can be added to the DS8000 series models to support various fixed-content, data-archival, reference-data, and streaming applications that require large amounts of storage capacity at a low cost per MB. SATA drives are not intended for use in applications that require drive utilization duty cycles greater than 20%. In addition, SATA drives are supported only in RAID-6 and RAID-10 configurations. SATA drives will not share sparing capability with non-SATA drives. Due to the low duty cycle nature of SATA drives, SEFLC repository data is not supported on SATA drives.

The 1 TB 7,200 rpm SATA disk drives provide 50% more raw capacity than existing models, up to 1,024 TB for DS8300 Turbo Models and up to 384 TB for DS8100 Turbo Models. The 1 TB 7,200 rpm SATA disk drive sets are optional to the DS8000 series and are available with feature numbers 28xx. 1 TB 7,200 rpm SATA drives will be available under the standard Capacity on Demand offering.

Intelligent Write Caching

Write caches using fast, non-volatile storage are now widely used in modern storage controllers since they help minimize latency on writes. Effective algorithms for write cache management are extremely important since due to RAID architecture, one write can cause many disk seeks, and write cache capacity is limited for overall system performance considerations.

IBM Research conducts research into algorithms for cache management and overall system performance improvements. Intelligent Write Caching utilizes a newly developed algorithm for write management to boost performance through improving utilization of both temporal locality (data most recently modified), and spatial locality (data located physically together). To increase aggregate throughput and reduce aggregate response times, the IBM DS8000 series now provides enterprise storage controllers utilizing the Intelligent Write Caching algorithm.

Remote Pair FlashCopy

The IBM DS8000 provides the Remote Pair FlashCopy function with the capability to allow a FlashCopy relationship where the FlashCopy target device is a Metro Mirror primary device. This significantly reduces the recoverability time that exists when a FlashCopy background copy and Metro Mirror Resync are in progress. The Remote Pair FlashCopy provides a solution well-suited for data replication, data migration, remote copy, and disaster recovery tasks.

For business continuity, the Remote Pair FlashCopy operations are designed to be non-disruptive, allowing the primary device of each FlashCopy pair to remain available to all hosts for both read and write I/O operations. Once established, Remote Pair FlashCopy operations can continue unattended to support continuous data backup to the secondary device.

z/OS® support of Remote Pair FlashCopy will be available on z/OS V1.8, or later, using the name FlashCopy Preserve Mirror.

Installation planning is a customer responsibility. Information about planning the installation of your DS8000 series, including equipment, site, and power requirements, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8000 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC35-0515).

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.

Application of the initial logical configuration and all subsequent modifications to the logical configuration is a customer responsibility. The logical configuration can be created, applied, and modified using the DS Storage Manager, DS CLI, or DS Open API.

IBM Global Services will also apply and/or modify your logical configuration (fee-based services).

Licensed Machine Code planning and application

IBM may release changes to the DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code. IBM plans to make most DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code changes available for download by the DS8000 series system from the IBM System Storage technical support Web site. Please note that not all Licensed Machine Code changes may be available via the support Web site. If the machine does not function as warranted and your problem can be resolved through your application of downloadable Licensed Machine Code, you are responsible for downloading and installing these designated Licensed Machine Code changes as IBM specifies. IBM has responsibility for installing changes that IBM does not make available for you to download. The DS8000 series includes many enhancements to make the Licensed Machine Code change process simpler, quicker, and more automated. If you would prefer, you may request IBM to install downloadable Licensed Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.
