EXP5060 High Density Disk Drive Enclosure

The EXP5060 (1818-G1A) High Density Disk Enclosure is packaged in a 4U rack-mount enclosure containing 5 drive trays, each tray holds up to 12 SATA disk drives for a total disk drive capacity of up to 60 SATA drives per enclosure.

The storage capacity of the EXP5060 is 60 TB per enclosure using 1000 GB SATA drives. Up to eight EXP5060 enclosures can be attached to a DS5000 controller (when neither the EXP5000 expansion or EXP810 expansion enclosures are part of the configuration) to provide a configuration that scales up to 480 SATA disk drives with a physical storage capacity of up to 480 TB. The DS5100 controller must have the DS5100 Attach up to Eight DS5060s feature (#7372) installed to gain support for attachment of 480 SATA drives. Additionally, the DS5100 controller must have the Attach up to 448 disk drives feature (#7371) as a prerequisite to feature number 7372 to gain support for attachment of 480 SATA disk drives. The DS5300 controller must have the DS5300 Attach up to Eight DS5060s feature (#7373) installed to gain support for attachment of 480 SATA drives.

Intermixing of EXP5060 enclosures, EXP5000 enclosures, and EXP810 enclosures attached to a single DS5100 or DS5300 controller is supported, but limited to a configuration of up to 448 drives or less. Additionally, if the DS5100 is the controller and the configuration will exceed 256 disk drives, the Attach up to 448 disk drives feature (#7371) must be installed.

To gain support for attachment of the EXP810 Expansion Unit to a DS5000 series controller, customers must submit an RPQ request using the normal RPQ Request process.

At initial introduction, the EXP5060 uses 1000 GB/7200 rpm SATA DDMs available in a 10-Pack EXP5060 1000 GB/7.2K SATA DDM feature (#4740) that contains 10 disk drives. An initial order for the EXP5060 enclosure must include a minimum of 2 of these features, which provides a minimum of 20 drives that must be installed in the EXP5060.

The EXP5060 is designed for high availability and contains redundant Enclosure Service Modules (ESM) that uses Fibre Channel switching technology. The switches are attached to each of the dual-ported disk drive modules for added redundancy. The EXP5060 contains built-in, redundant power supplies and cooling components as well.

EXP5060 enclosures attach to DS5000 series DS5100 and DS5300 controllers and to other expansion enclosures via their 4 Gbps FC drive ports. The EXP5060 has four FC drive ports and depending upon the specific configuration and placement of the EXP5060, the actual number of drive ports used will vary from two to four. To enable the drive ports, they must first be populated with shortwave 4 Gbps SFP transceivers. The EXP5060 is shipped with two of the four ports already populated. If your configuration requires the other two ports enabled, you must order feature 2412 which provides a pair of shortwave 4 Gbps SFP transceivers that will populate these two ports.

The EXP5060 High Density enclosure is designed to be powered from 200-240 V ac power sources. For those installations that require the EXP5060 to be directly connected to wall power outlets that will supply 200-240 V ac, country-specific wall outlet power cords are available by selecting the appropriate optional feature (#98xx). Two power cords are included with each country-specfic power cord feature for the EXP5060 enclosure. Only one country-specific feature can be ordered with each EXP5060. For additional information on the various country-specific wall outlet power cords available for the EXP5060, refer to the DS5000 Midrange Disk System sales manual.

When EXP5060 enclosures are to be plant or field integrated into the IBM 2101 Model 200 Storage Solutions Rack, the rack must be configured with PDU power cords rated for 240 V ac electrical service using either of rack power cord options 9491, 9492, 6491, or 6492. This will enable the 2101-200 Rack to be connected to the appropriate power sources in the data center. Refer to the 2101 Model 200 Rack sales manual for details.

The Ruggedized Rack feature (#6080) on the 2101-200 Rack is not designed to handle the weight associated with the EXP5060 High Density Enclosure. The EXP5060 is not supported or allowed for installation into a 2101-200 Rack which has the Ruggedized Rack feature, and the Ruggedized Rack feature is not supported or allowed for installation on a 2101-200 Rack which have EXP5060s integrated.

For those installations that require the EXP5060 to be directly connected to wall power outlets that will supply 200-240 V ac, country-specific wall outlet power cords are available by selecting the appropriate optional feature (#98xx). Two power cords are included with each country-specfic power cord feature for the EXP5060 enclosure. Only one country-specific feature can be ordered with each EXP5060. For additional information on the various country-specific wall outlet power cords available for the EXP5060, refer to the DS5000 Midrange Disk System sales manual.

When EXP5060 enclosures are to be plant or field integrated into the IBM 2101 Model 200 Storage Solutions Rack, the rack must be configured with PDU power cords rated for 240 V ac electrical service using either of rack power cord options 9491, 9492, 6491, or 6492. This will enable the 2101-200 Rack to be connected to the appropriate power sources in the data center. Refer to the 2101 Model 200 Rack sales manual for details.

The Ruggedized Rack feature (#6080) on the 2101-200 Rack is not designed to handle the weight associated with the EXP5060 High Density Enclosure. The EXP5060 is not supported or allowed for installation into a 2101-200 Rack which has the Ruggedized Rack feature, and the Ruggedized Rack feature is not supported or allowed for installation on a 2101-200 Rack which have EXP5060s integrated.

The EXP5060 Quick Start Guide describes the basic procedures for installing, cabling, and configuring the EXP5060 storage expansion enclosure. Specifically note, due to the weight of the storage enclosure as shipped, a lift tool and a minimum of two trained service technicians (IBM SSRs) are required for installation. For safety information, see the multilingual IBM Safety Information document on the documentation CD.

For more detailed information about the EXP5060 storage enclosure, see the IBM System Storage EXP5060 Storage Subsystem Installation, User's, and Maintenance Guide. This includes instructions to prepare the site to meet all area, environmental, power, and site requirements, as well as the following important highlights:

  • Procedure to load EXP5060 starting at the bottom of the rack to ensure rack stability
  • Instructions that specify the top of the EXP5060 unit must be installed at or below 60.75 inches (1543 mm) height above the floor
  • Procedure to remove disk drives from EXP5060 when planning to move or relocate the EXP5060 or 2101-200 Rack
  • Specifications for the installation in non-IBM machine-type 2101 or machine-type 7014 racks
  • Specifications for installing a DS5060 into a non-IBM machine-type 2101 or machine-type 7414 standard EIA rack enclosure. Note, the recommendation to contact your Installation Planning Representative to ensure a safe installation into your environment, with regard to rack mounting loads and floor loading. Note, the weight for one (1) DS5060 fully loaded with disk drives is 102.1 kg (225 lb). Also note, the load bearing capability and overall stability of the standard EIA rack enclosure must be sufficient to support 25.49 kg (56.25 lb) per EIU throughout the rack.

The Attach Up To Eight EXP5060 Enclosures feature (#7372) or (#7373) provides support for a maximum disk drive configuration of 480 SATA drives installed in eight EXP5060 Enclosures attached to a DS5100 or DS5300 controller, respectively. Note, application of this feature results in a disruptive controller re-boot operation; therefore, if the intended purpose of the DS5000 storage configuration is to only use EXP5060s with SATA drives and over time attain the 480 maximum supported number of SATA disk drives, it is recommended to select and apply the Attach Up To Eight EXP5060s feature (#7372) or (#7373) during the time of initial system installation. This will help to avoid a disruptive controller re-boot operation after the system has been deployed and additional EXP5060 Enclosures are prepared for attachment.

The Attach up to Eight EXP5060s feature (#7372) or (#7373) provides authorization and support to attach up to eight (8) EXP5060 expansion units to a DS5100 or DS5300 controller respectively, providing support for up to 480 SATA disk drives. Upon activation of feature 7372 or 7373, the DS5100 or DS5300 controller only recognizes and attaches to EXP5060 Enclosures, which only uses SATA drives. DS5000 systems, which migrate attachment from a mixture of EXP5000, EXP5060, and/or EXP810, and migrate to EXP5060 only attachment, will need to apply feature 7372 or 7373 and controller re-boot operation in order to attain the 480 maximum supported number of SATA disk drives.

The DS5100 controller base machine supports attachment of up to 256 drives. The Attach up to 448 disk drives feature (#7371) is a required prerequisite which must be installed first, before installing feature #7372 to gain support for attachment of 480 SATA disk drives.

The DS5300 controller base machine supports attachment of up to 448 drives. The DS5300 Attach up to Eight DS5060s feature (#7373) can be installed directly onto the DS5300 controller base machine to gain support for attachment of 480 SATA drives.

The DS5000 IBM i Host Kit feature (#7735) is supported with DS5300 and DS5100 controllers at firmware level 07.60, or later operating with IBM Power Systems (POWER6) (rack/tower systems only, no Power Blade support) while hosting IBM i OS 6.1 with 6.1.1 machine code. Refer to the DS5000 Interoperability Matrix for specific details on supported operating system levels, prerequisites, and required attachments.

The DS5100 and DS5300 disk systems must be at firmware level 07.60, or later, and the host server must be at DS Storage Manager level 10.60, or later, to enable support for the 600 GB FC disk drive and 600 GB encryption-capable FC disk drive features. The Disk Encryption Activation feature (#7358) is a required prerequisite to turn on and enable support for encryption-capable Fibre Channel disk drives.

Customers must submit an RPQ request using the normal RPQ Request process to gain support for attaching EXP810 Storage Expansion Units to DS5000 controllers.

Fiber optic cable options 5601, 5605, and 5625 provide 50 micron fiber optic cables with "length - bandwidth product" rating of 500km *MHz, which translates to 250 meters for 2 Gbps FC, 125 meters for 4 Gbps FC, and 62.5 meters for 8 Gbps FC. These distances reflect the rating for the cable only, within a cable installation design.

Note that fiber optic cables are provided as an accommodation to customers to help connect the storage array to the nearest patch panel or SAN switch. Customers are responsible to ensure that the overall end-to-end fiber optic cable infrastructure is suitable for the corresponding industry standard communication protocols and link speeds.
