IBM® System Storage® DS5020 Disk System and EXP520 Expansion Unit are enhanced with the following new features:

  • 73 GB and 300 GB solid state drives (feature numbers 5590 and 5591, respectively). These features offer you a new level of performance and can be intermixed with SATA and FC hard disk drives within DS5020 and EXP520 enclosures.
  • Air filter bezel (feature number 2011). This feature provides an air filter housing (and one filter) that attaches to the DS5020 and EXP520 enclosure and is designed to help prevent harmful particles from entering the enclosure in harsh environments.
  • 240 volt Brazil power cord (feature number 9862). This feature provides two 2.8 meter, 240 volt/10 amp C19 to NBR 6147 line cords and replaces the previously announced 125 volt Brazil power cord (feature number 9842).

The DS5020 and EXP520 now also conform to applicable Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) level 3 documents and to applicable European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) documents.

Additionally, the 240 volt Brazil power cord (feature number 9862) is now available on IBM System Storage DS5000 series and DS4000™ series disk systems and storage expansion units.

For ordering, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: YE001).

You are responsible for downloading or obtaining from IBM, and installing designated Machine Code (microcode, basic input/output system code (called "BIOS"), utility programs, device drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM machine) and other software updates in a timely manner from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that IBM provides. You may request IBM to install Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.

Cable orders

No cables required.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
