IBM POWER6+ processor technology

The DS8800 high-performance flagship model features the IBM POWER6+ server technology to help support high performance. Compared to the performance of the previous DS8000 system, DS8700, this new processor aids the DS8800 in achieving sequential read throughput performance improvement of up to 20% and sequential write throughput performance improvement of up to 40%. The DS8800 offers either a dual 2-way processor complex or a dual 4-way processor complex.

Non-disruptive upgrade path

The DS8800 also supports a non-disruptive upgrade path for the DS8800 Model 951, and additional Model 95E expansion frames allow processor, cache, and storage enhancements to be performed concurrently without disrupting applications.

High density storage enclosure

The DS8800 provides storage enclosure Gigapack support for 24 small form factor (SFF, 2.5") SAS drives in 2U of rack space. This option can help improve the storage density for disk drive modules (DDMs) as compared to the previous enclosure which only supports 16 DDMs in 3.5U of rack space. Both encryption and non-encryption drives will be supported.

Improved high density frame design

DS8800 can support a total of 1056 drives in a significantly smaller footprint (three frames), allowing higher density and preserving valuable raise floor space in datacenter environments. A single DS8800 model base frame can take up to 50% less floor space than an IBM System Storage DS8700 system (depending on configuration). The DS8800 base model supports up to 240 drives, with the first expansion frame supporting up to 336 drives and the second expansion frame supporting up to 480 drives. DS8800 leverages best practices with hot/cold aisle data center design, drawing air for cooling from the front of the rack and exhausting hot air at the rear of the rack. Combining improved cooling implementation, reduced system footprint, and small form factor SAS-2 drives, a fully configured DS8800 consumes up to 40% less power than previous generations of DS8000.

Improved configuration options

The DS8800 provides a business class configuration option in addition to the standard cabling. The business class option allows a system to be configured with more drives per device adapter, reducing configuration cost and increasing adapter utilization. Business class cabling can change configuration options available. This configuration option is intended for configurations where capacity and high resource utilization is most important. Standard cabling is optimized for performance and highly scalable configurations with large long term growth.

The DS8800 high density business class disk drive cable option is an optional feature (FC #1250).

Processor memory offerings

The DS8800 model with 2-way configuration offers up to 128 GB of processor memory, and the DS8800 model with 4-way configuration offers up to 384 GB of processor memory. In addition, the non-volatile storage scales to the processor memory size selected to help optimize performance.

High availability

The DS8800 model is designed and implemented with component redundancy to help avoid many potential single points of failure.

Logical unit number (LUN) and volume management

Non-disruptive LUN and volume creation and deletion are supported. When a LUN or volume is deleted, the capacity can be reformatted and reused.

LUNs and volumes can be configured to span arrays. Therefore, the size of the volume or LUN is not constrained by the size of the array. LUNs up to 2 TB are supported. CKD volumes up to 223 GB (262,668 cylinders) supported.

Dynamic Volume Expansion supporting application data growth

The IBM System Storage DS8000 series supports Dynamic Volume Expansion, allowing the size of a logical volume to be increased while it is online to a host system. This capability can simplify management by enabling easier online volume expansion to support application data growth. The maximum volume size is limited to the currently supported maximum size for DS8000:

  • Open Systems (Fixed Block - FB) volumes - 2 TB
  • System z® (CKD) volumes - 223 GB (262,668 cylinders)

Volumes that are expanded can be online during and after the execution of the function. Volumes may not be in Copy Services relationships (Point-in-Time Copy, FlashCopy® SE, Metro Mirror, Global Mirror, Metro/Global Mirror, and z/OS® Global Mirror functions) while expansion is taking place. The function can be managed and configured via the DS Storage Manager, DS CLI, and DS Open API. IBM System z and System p® servers support and recognize the expanded volumes within the DS8000.

All other servers may require additional steps to be put into place in order to support and recognize the expanded volumes within the DS8000. The Dynamic Volume Expansion capability is provided with the DS8000 series at no additional charge.

Addressing capabilities

Support for logical subsystems, logical devices, and logical paths defined as:

  • Up to 256 logical subsystems
  • Up to 65,280 logical devices
  • Up to 130,560 FICON logical paths (1,280 logical paths per control unit image)
  • Up to 8,000 process logins (509 per SCSI-FCP port)
Simplified storage management for System z with z/OS

For System z and z/OS environments, DS8800 models can support 223 GB (262,668 cylinders) 3390 volumes. It can help relieve addressing constraints, improve disk resource utilization, and improve storage administrator productivity by providing the ability to consolidate multiple disk volumes into a single address.

Administration and management

  • Online configuration capability features a Web-based GUI designed to offer increased ease of use
  • A single command line interface (CLI) supports both logical configuration and copy services
  • Capabilities such as remote code distribution and e-mail notification of link failures can also improve availability

IBM Standby Capacity on Demand offering

IBM Standby Capacity on Demand (Standy CoD) solutions are designed to meet the changing storage needs of rapidly growing e-businesses. IBM Standby CoD for the DS8000 offering allows inactive disk drives to be installed and easily activated as business needs require.

The Standby CoD provides the ability to tap into additional storage and is particularly attractive for rapid or unpredictable growth, or just for the knowledge that extra storage will be there when needed.

With this offering, up to six Standby CoD disk drive sets (96 disk drives) can be factory or field installed into the system. For activation, the disk drives should be logically configured. This is a non-disruptive activity that does not require intervention from IBM. Upon activation of any portion of a Standby CoD disk drive set, an order should be placed with IBM to initiate billing for the activated set. At that time, replacement Standby CoD disk drive sets may also be ordered.

This offering allows licensed functions to be purchased based upon the machine's physical capacity, excluding unconfigured Standby CoD capacity.

This offering does not have an offering fee premium. A Standby CoD disk drive set must be activated within a 12-month period from the date of installation and all activation is permanent. Contact your IBM representative to obtain additional information regarding Standby CoD offering terms and conditions.

Full disk encryption

IBM recognizes the requirement for data protection, not only from hardware or software failures, but also from physical relocation of hardware, theft, and re-tasking of existing hardware. Full disk encryption drive sets allow data encryption at rest on a DS8000 series storage controller, helping to mitigate the threat of theft, mismanagement, or loss of business critical data.

The DS8000 series allows installation of encrypted 450 GB 10,000 rpm, and 600 GB 10,000 rpm SAS drives with key management services supported by Tivoli® Key Lifecycle Manager software. The full disk encryption disk drive sets are optional to the DS8000 series and are available with feature numbers 5xxx. Encryption drive set support must also be ordered via feature number 1751.

The full disk encryption support feature is available only as plant order. Plant configured encryption supporting systems will be allowed to increase the number of drive sets installed at an existing location.

Intermixing of drives is not supported, thus the entire subsystem is either encrypted drives (feature numbers 5xxx) or intermixed devices of SAS and SSD devices (feature numbers 2xxx and 6xxx).

Additionally, an environment verification process must be completed to support best practice configuration of the encryption solution. This verification can be requested from IBM Lab Based Services (recommended), or completed by the customer, but is a prerequisite of the encryption solution activation process.

z/OS support of Disk Encryption is available on z/OS V1.8, or later.

Solid state drives (SSD)

To improve data transfer rate (IOPS) and response time, IBM DS8000 series provides support for SSD. SSDs have improved I/O transaction-based performance over traditional platter-based drives. IBM DS8000 series will initially offer SSDs in 300 GB capacities with enhanced response time performance. SSDs are a high-IOPS class enterprise storage device targeted at Tier 0 applications that can use a high level of fast-access storage. SSDs offer a number of potential benefits over hard disk drives, including better IOPS performance, lower power consumption, less heat generation, and lower acoustical noise. The SSDs are optional to the DS8000 series and are available with feature numbers 6xxx.

SSDs will be limited to 384 drives per DS8800 system. Additionally, RAID-6 and RAID-10 are not supported for SSD arrays.

Flexibility with support for RAID-5, RAID-6, and RAID-10

Physical capacity on the DS8000 series can be configured as RAID-5, RAID-6, RAID-10, or a combination of the three. RAID-5 can offer excellent performance for most applications, while RAID-10 can offer better performance for selected applications, in particular for high random write content applications in an open systems environment.

The decision to configure capacity as RAID-6, RAID-5, or RAID-10, as well as the amount of capacity to configure for each type, can be made at any time. RAID-6, RAID-5, and RAID-10 arrays can be intermixed within a single system and the physical capacity can be logically reconfigured at a later date (for example, RAID-6 arrays can be reconfigured into RAID-5 arrays).

Connectivity with four/eight-port Fibre Channel/FICON host adapters

The DS8000 series is designed to offer enhanced connectivity with the availability of four-port or eight-port Fibre Channel/FICON host adapters. The 8 Gb Fibre Channel/FICON host adapters, offered in longwave and shortwave, auto-negotiate to either 8 Gb, 4 Gb, or 2 Gb link speeds. This flexibility enables exploitation of the potential benefits offered by higher performance, 8 Gb SAN-based solutions, while also maintaining compatibility with existing 2 Gb and 4 Gb infrastructures. In addition, the individual ports on the adapter can be configured with Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) or FICON. This protects investment in Fibre Channel adapters and increases the ability to migrate to new servers. A DS8800 Model 951 can support up to a maximum of 16 host adapters, which equates to a maximum of 128 Fibre Channel ports.

DS8800 models offer extensive connectivity support, including Fibre Channel or FICON, across a broad range of server environments, such as IBM System z, System p, System i®, and System x® servers, as well as servers from Sun and Hewlett-Packard, and non-IBM Intel-based servers. This rich support of heterogeneous environments and attachments, along with the flexibility to easily partition the DS8000 series storage capacity among the attached environments, can help support storage consolidation requirements and dynamic, changing environments.

Improved performance with storage pool striping (rotate extents)

The storage pool striping (rotate extents) function, by default, stripes new volumes across all ranks of an extent pool to help reduce the administration required to balance system loads. With multiple rank allocation support, the system can automatically perform close to the highest efficiency, requiring little or no performance administration. The effectiveness of performance management is enhanced as imbalances tend to occur as isolated problems. The storage pool striping function can help automate hotspot avoidance for improved performance and response time without special tuning.

This function can be managed and configured via the DS Storage Manager, DS CLI, and DS Open API. All host systems supported by the DS8000 today are supported with storage pool striping. The storage pool striping function is provided with the DS8000 series at no additional charge.

Rich set of business continuance solutions

The DS8800 models support a rich set of copy service functions and management tools that can be used to build solutions to help address business continuance requirements.

Point-in-time copy solutions

The FlashCopy advanced function is designed to provide a point-in-time copy capability for logical volumes. The FlashCopy function creates a physical point-in-time copy of the data, with minimal interruption to applications, and makes it possible to access both the source and target copies immediately.

FlashCopy supports many advanced capabilities, including:

  • Data Set FlashCopy: Allows a FlashCopy of a data set in a System z environment.
  • Multiple Relationship FlashCopy: Allows a source to have FlashCopy relationships with multiple targets simultaneously. This flexibility allows you to initiate up to 12 FlashCopy establishes on a given LUN, volume, or data set without needing to first wait for or cause previous relationships to end.
  • Incremental FlashCopy: Provides the capability to refresh a LUN or volume involved in a FlashCopy relationship. When a subsequent FlashCopy Establish is initiated, only the data required to bring the target current to the source's newly established point-in-time is copied. The direction of the refresh can also be reversed, in which case the LUN or volume previously defined as the target becomes the source for the LUN or volume previously defined as the source (and now defined as the target).
  • Remote Mirror Primary FlashCopy: Allows a FlashCopy relationship to be established where the target is also a remote mirror primary volume. This enables a full or incremental point-in-time copy to be created at a local site, and then use remote mirroring commands to copy the data to the remote site.
  • Consistency Group Commands: Allows DS8800 model systems to hold off I/O activity to a LUN or volume until the FlashCopy Consistency Group command is issued. Consistency groups can be used to help create a consistent point-in-time copy across multiple LUNs or volumes, and even across multiple DS8800s.
  • Inband Commands Over Remote Mirror Link: A remote mirror environment allows commands to manage FlashCopy at the remote site to be issued from the local or intermediate site and transmitted over the remote mirror Fibre Channel links. This helps eliminate the need for a network connection to the remote site solely for the management of FlashCopy. FlashCopy is an optional feature of the DS8800 models, and is available with the point-in-time indicator feature numbers 72xx and 0720 and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization (2396-LFA feature number 72xx).
IBM FlashCopy SE offers price and efficiency options

The DS8000 Point-in-Time Copy (IBM FlashCopy) function requires space to be set aside equal to the size of the volumes that are to be copied. The IBM System Storage DS8000 series provides support for IBM FlashCopy SE (space efficient snapshot capability) which is intended to use only the amount of storage needed by the copy. This capability can lower the amount of storage needed by many DS8000 clients today, and help lower costs by significantly reducing disk capacity needed for copies. Reducing capacity in the DS8000 can also mean fewer drives and less power required for the overall system.

IBM FlashCopy SE can be managed and configured via the DS Storage Manager, DS CLI, and DS Open API. All host systems supported by the DS8000 today are supported with FlashCopy SE (IBM System z servers require z/OS 1.7, or later, for this support). For more information on implementation of this function, please refer to the IBM System Storage DS8000 FlashCopy SE Implementation Considerations and Recommendations document located at

http://www.ibm.com/support/techdocs/atsmastr.nsf/WebIndex/FLASH10617

IBM FlashCopy SE is an optional feature on the DS8000 series, available with the SE indicator feature numbers 0730 and 735x-736x and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization (2396-LFA SE feature numbers 735x-736x).

Remote mirror and copy solutions

DS8800 models support several hardware-based remote mirror and copy solutions:

  • IBM System Storage Metro Mirror: This solution is designed to provide real-time mirroring of logical volumes between two systems that can be located up to 300 km from each other. It is a synchronous copy solution where write operations are completed on both copies (local and remote site) before they are considered to be done.
  • IBM System Storage Global Copy: This is a non-synchronous long-distance copy option for data migration and backup.
  • IBM System Storage Global Mirror: Global Mirror is a long-distance remote copy solution across two sites using asynchronous technology and is designed to provide the following:
    • Support for virtually unlimited distance between the local and remote sites, with the distance typically limited only by the capabilities of the network and channel extension technology being used. This can better enable you to choose your remote site location based on business needs and enables site separation to add protection from localized disasters.
    • A consistent and restartable copy of the data at the remote site, created with little impact to applications at the local site.
    • Data currency where, for many environments, the remote site lags behind the local site as little as 3 to 5 seconds, helping to minimize the amount of data exposure in the event of an unplanned outage. The actual lag in data currency experienced will depend upon a number of factors, including specific workload characteristics and bandwidth between the local and remote sites.
    • Dynamic selection of the desired Recovery Point Objective (RPO) based upon business requirements and optimization of available bandwidth.
    • Session support whereby data consistency at the remote site is internally managed across up to eight systems located across the local and remote sites.
    • Efficient synchronization of the local and remote sites with support for failover and failback modes, helping to reduce the time required to switch back to the local site after a planned or unplanned outage.

Interoperability with existing and previous generations of DS8000 series

All of the above remote mirroring solutions use Fibre Channel as the communications link between the primary and secondary machines. The Fibre Channel ports used for remote mirror and copy can be configured as either a dedicated remote mirror link or as a shared port between remote mirroring and Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) data traffic.

The remote mirror and copy solutions listed above are optional capabilities of the DS8800 Model 951 and are compatible with previous generations of DS8000. They are available as follows:

  • Metro Mirror indicator feature numbers 75xx and 0744 and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization (2396-LFA MM feature numbers 75xx).
  • Global Mirror indicator feature numbers 75xx and 0746 and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization (2396-LFA GM feature numbers 75xx).

DS8000 series systems can also participate in global copy solutions with the IBM TotalStorage® ESS Model 750, IBM TotalStorage ESS Model 800, and IBM System Storage DS6000™ series systems for data migration. For more information on data migration and migration services contact IBM or a Business Partner representative.

Global Copy is a non-synchronous long distance copy option for data migration and backup, and is available under Metro Mirror and Global Mirror licenses or Remote Mirror and Copy license on older DS8000, ESS, or DS6000 systems.

Three-site Metro/Global Mirror

The DS8000 series supports three-site Metro/Global Mirror configurations. The Metro Mirror and Global Mirror functions utilize synchronous mirroring (Metro Mirror) from a local A-site to a metro-distance B-site, and asynchronous mirroring (Global Mirror) from an intermediate B-site to a remote C-site. This function, referred to as Metro/Global Mirror, is designed to provide planned and unplanned outage three-site enterprise disk data replication to meet rigorous three-site business resiliency needs of the enterprise data center. Metro/Global Mirror can support synchronous replication at distances up to 303 km using IBM System Storage Metro Mirror, and can maintain the asynchronous third site for out of region recovery, at a data currency that can be within 3 to 5 seconds (bandwidth permitting) using IBM System Storage Global Mirror.

Metro/Global Mirror is designed to provide:

  • Fast failover/failback to any site
  • Fast reestablishment of three-site recovery without production outages
  • Quick resynchronization to any site with incremental changes only

Metro/Global Mirror supports planned and unplanned switches from a local A-site to a remote B-site. With the cascading nature of Metro/Global Mirror, during and after the metro-distance switch, this function can provide continuous asynchronous disaster recovery protection to the out of region remote C-site without the necessity of additional reconfiguration. In the event of a loss of access to the B-site, Metro/Global Mirror is designed to provide incremental resynchronization from the local A-site to the remote C-site. The B-site can be brought back into the three-site configuration without a production outage, and with full failover and failback.

The Metro/Global Mirror solution uses Fibre Channel as the communications link between the primary, secondary, and tertiary machines. The Fibre Channel ports used for remote mirror and copy can be configured as either a dedicated remote mirror link or as a shared port between remote mirroring and FCP data traffic.

The Metro/Global Mirror solution is an optional capability of the DS8000 series and is available with the Metro/Global Mirror indicator feature numbers 74xx and 0742 and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization (2396-LFA MGM feature numbers 74xx).

Remote mirror and copy solutions for z/OS

The following are three remote mirror and copy solutions for the z/OS environment for the DS8800 models:

  • IBM System Storage z/OS Global Mirror: This is a combined hardware and software business continuance solution for the System z environment providing asynchronous mirroring between systems at two sites located global distances apart. z/OS Global Mirror is an optional capability of the DS8000 series and is available with the remote mirror for z/OS indicator feature numbers 76xx and 0760 and corresponding DS8000 series Function Authorization (2396-LFA RMZ feature numbers 76xx). z/OS Global Mirror also requires the purchase of the FICON attachment licensed feature.
  • z/OS Metro/Global Mirror (three-site z/OS Global Mirror and Metro Mirror): This mirroring capability utilizes z/OS Global Mirror to mirror primary-site data to a location that is a long distance away and also uses Metro Mirror to mirror primary-site data to a location within the metropolitan area. This enables a three-site high availability and disaster recovery z/OS solution for even greater protection from unplanned outages. z/OS Metro/Global Mirror is an optional capability of the DS8000 series and is available with the remote mirror for z/OS indicator feature numbers 76xx and 0760 and corresponding DS8000 series Function Authorization (2396-LFA RMZ feature numbers 76xx) Mirror and/or Global Mirror features. z/OS Metro/Global Mirror also requires the purchase of a FICON attachment licensed feature.
  • Three-site z/OS Metro/Global Mirror Incremental Resync: This capability can eliminate the need for a full copy after a HyperSwap™ situation in three-site z/OS Metro/Global Mirror configurations. The z/OS Metro/Global Mirror Incremental Resync capability is intended to enhance Remote Mirror for z/OS by enabling resynchronization of data between sites using only the changed data from the Metro Mirror target to the z/OS Global Mirror target after a GDPS® HyperSwap. This can significantly reduce the amount of data to be copied after a Hyperswap situation and improve the resilience of an overall three-site disaster recovery solution by reducing resync times. z/OS Metro/Global Mirror Incremental Resync is an optional feature of the DS8800 Model 951 and is available with the RMZ resync licensed feature indicator feature numbers 0763 and 76xx and DS8000 series Function Authorization (2396-LFA RMZ resync feature numbers 76xx). z/OS Metro/Global Mirror also requires the purchase of the FICON attachment licensed feature.
IBM performance innovations for System Z environments

FICON extends the ability of DS8000 series system to help deliver high bandwidth potential to the logical volumes needing it, when they need it. Older technologies are limited by the bandwidth of a single disk drive, but FICON, working together with other DS8000 series functions, provides a high-speed pipe supporting multiplexed operation.

Support for FICON attachment is an optional feature of DS8800 Model 951 and is available with the FICON attachment licensed feature indicator feature numbers 7091 and 0703 and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization (2396-LFA FICON attachment feature number 7091).

Parallel Access Volumes (PAV) enable a single System z server to simultaneously process multiple I/O operations to the same logical volume to significantly reduce device queue delays by defining multiple addresses per volume. With Dynamic PAV, the assignment of addresses to volumes can be automatically managed to help meet performance objectives and reduce overall queuing. PAV is an optional feature on the DS8000 series and is available with the PAV indicator feature numbers 78xx and 0780 and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization (2396-LFA PAV feature numbers 78xx). PAV also requires the purchase of the FICON attachment licensed feature.

HyperPAV allows an alias address to be used to access any base on the same control unit image per I/O base. This capability also allows different HyperPAV hosts to use one alias to access different bases, reducing the number of alias addresses required to support a set of bases in a System z environment with no latency in targeting an alias to a base. This functionality is designed to enable applications to achieve equal or better performance than possible with the original PAV feature alone while using the same or fewer z/OS resources.

HyperPAV is an optional feature on the DS8000 series and is available with the HyperPAV indicator feature numbers 7899 and 0782 and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization (2396-LFA HyperPAV feature number 7899). HyperPAV also requires the purchase of PAV licensed feature(s) and the FICON attachment licensed feature.

The Extended Address Volumes (EAV) function provides support for volumes that can scale up to approximately 223 GB (262,668 cylinders), helping to relieve address constraints to support large storage capacity needs in System z environments. Larger devices can help simplify storage management by managing fewer large volumes as opposed to many small volumes. The HyperPAV function complements EAV by allowing scaling of I/O rates against a single, larger volume. Dynamic Volume Expansion allows non-disruptive migration to the larger volume sizes now available. The function is supported on DS8000 series systems running on IBM System z servers with z/OS V1.10, or later. The EAV capability is provided with the DS8000 series at no additional charge.

Multiple allegiance expands the simultaneous logical volume access capability across multiple System z servers. This function, along with PAV, enables the DS8000 series to process more I/Os in parallel, helping to improve performance and enable greater use of large volumes.

z/OS Global Mirror Multiple Reader (Enhanced Reader) allows automatic load balancing over multiple readers in a z/OS Global Mirror (XRC) environment. This function provides increased parallelism through multiple SDM readers and improved throughput for z/OS remote mirroring configurations. z/OS Global Mirror can also help maintain constant data consistency between mirrored sites and enable achievement of lower recovery point objectives. The function is supported on DS8000 series systems running on IBM System z servers with z/OS 1.7, or later.

z/OS Global Mirror Multiple Reader requires the purchase of z/OS Global Mirror which is an optional capability of the DS8000 series (RMZ indicator feature numbers 0760 and 76xx and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization - 2396-LFA feature numbers 76xx). z/OS Global Mirror also requires the purchase of the FICON attachment feature. The z/OS Global Mirror Multiple Reader function has no additional charge beyond the z/OS Global Mirror and FICON attachment feature charges.

High performance FICON multi-track for System z improves performance

IBM now provides High Performance FICON for System z (zHPF). Previously, FICON working together with other DS8000 series functions provided a high-speed connection supporting multiplexed operation. High Performance FICON takes advantage of the hardware available today with enhancements that are designed to reduce the overhead associated with supported commands. Enhancements have been made to the z/Architecture® and the FICON interface architecture to deliver improvements for online transaction processing workloads. zHPF is designed to help reduce overhead and improve performance when exploited by the FICON channel, the z/OS operating system, and the control unit. Additionally, the changes to the architectures offer end-to-end system enhancements to improve reliability, availability, and serviceability. Existing adapters will be able to handle an intermix of transactions using FCP, FICON, and High Performance FICON protocols.

High Performance FICON can support more than one track's worth of data in a single transfer. Applications using Media Manager for I/O with large data transfers are expected to benefit those using zFS, HFS, PDSE, and striped extended format data sets. This function is available on z/OS V1.9 and z/OS V1.10 with the PTFs for APARs OA26084 and OA29017.

This function is a modification to the FICON I/O architecture and is being worked on for inclusion into the Fibre Channel Standard by the INCITS Fibre Channel (T11) Technical Committee's FC-SB-4 project.

Support for High Performance FICON multi-track is an optional feature of DS8800 Model 951 and is available with the High Performance FICON licensed feature indicator feature numbers 7092 and 0709 and corresponding DS8000 series function authorization (2396-LFA High Performance FICON feature number 7092).

I/O priority queuing

I/O priority queuing allows the DS8000 series to use I/O priority information provided by the z/OS Workload Manager to manage the processing sequence of I/O operations.

IPV6 Support

IBM System Storage DS8000 has been qualified as meeting the requirements of the IPv6 Ready Logo program, indicating its implementation of IPv6 mandatory core protocols and the ability to interoperate with other IPv6 implementations. IBM DS8000 Systems can be configured in native IPv6 environments.

Licensing capabilities for copy functions

With DS8800 models, licensing options are available for users of FlashCopy (point-in-time copy indicator feature), Metro Mirror, and Global Mirror indicator features as follows:

  • If the function is used with open systems data only, a license is required for only the total physical capacity configured as Fixed Block (FB).
  • If the function will be used with System z data only, a license is required for only the total physical capacity configured as Count Key Data (CKD).
  • If the function is used with both open systems and System z data, a license is required for the total physical capacity of DS8000 series system.

In addition, the license scope (FB, CKD, or entire machine) client is managed through an IBM Web-based application to change the license scope on a given machine as business requirements change.

Additional DS8000 functions
  • End-to-end I/O priorities: The DS8000 series host adapter allows preferential treatment to higher priority I/O and provides improved response time in the overall system operation while running in IBM System p AIX® and DB2® operating environments.
  • Cooperative caching: The storage facility uses a cache hint to manage the retention period of cached data and provides improved overall system performance through more efficient use of the aggregate memory resources while running in IBM System p AIX and DB2 operating environments.
  • Intelligent write caching: Write caches using fast, non-volatile storage are now widely used in modern storage controllers since they help reduce latency on writes. 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.
  • Long busy wait host tolerance: Provides new protocol that allows a target to specify that it is busy and how long the initiator should wait before retrying. This avoids the initiator from failing I/O after numerous retries and receiving busy responses and avoids the initiator retrying too soon while running in the IBM System p AIX operating environments.
  • Audit logging: DS8000 supports audit logging and viewing of an exported log file. The DS8000 audit logging capability includes information such as a list of users who have logged in and what the user did during their session. A separate log entry is added each time a resource is created, deleted, or modified providing enhanced administrator ease-of-use and additional security.

The above functions are provided with the DS8000 series at no additional charge.

Management tools and utilities for administrator productivity

The DS8000 series models support the following management tools and utilities:

  • IBM System Storage management console: The management console is the focal point for maintenance activities and is a dedicated laptop that is physically located (installed) inside your DS8800 and can proactively monitor the state of your system, notifying you and IBM when service is required. It can also be connected to your network to enable centralized management of your system using the IBM System Storage DS® Command Line Interface or storage management software utilizing the IBM System Storage DS Open API. An external Management Console is available as a optional feature and can be used as a redundant management console for environments with high-availability requirements.
  • Support for System Storage productivity center (SSPC): SSPC provides the capability to consolidate a storage management infrastructure with a center-of-the-room management console. DS8000 will support the SSPC, allowing clients to simply and quickly configure their systems as well as manage multiple DS8000 systems within a datacenter. The SSPC provides preloaded software including IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center (previously known as TotalStorage Productivity Center) Basic Edition and the enhanced DS Storage Manager. The enterprise edition of the SSPC also supports the option to install the IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication. Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication is designed to support hundreds of replication sessions across thousands of volumes, supporting both open and z/OS attached volumes. In addition, it helps monitor performance of all copy session types and reports on the amount of data exposed at the disaster recovery site (not in synchronization with the source site). The Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Three-Site BC feature optionally provides three-site recovery management, supporting the IBM System Storage DS8000 Metro Global Mirror feature. The three-site feature is designed to support fast failover and failback, fast reestablishment of three-site mirroring, data currency at the remote site with minimal lag behind the local site, and quick resynchronization of mirrored sites using incremental changes only. The SSPC is a separately purchased product (using Machine type 2805) for the DS8000, and is required for all new DS8000 machine orders. Clients with currently installed DS8000 machines are not required to purchase the SSPC.
  • IBM System Storage DS command line interface (CLI): The DS CLI is a single CLI that has the ability to perform a wide range of commands for both configuration and copy services activities. The application has three modes of execution:
    • Single shot mode will connect, issue a single command, and then return to the user.
    • Script mode will connect, execute a predefined customer script, and then return to the user.
    • Interactive mode will place the user in a shell environment with a static connection to the storage subsystem so the user can execute multiple commands.

    The CLI has the ability to dynamically invoke copy services functions. This can help enhance your productivity since it eliminates the previous requirement for you to create and save a task using the GUI. The DS CLI can also issue copy services commands to an ESS Model 750, ESS Model 800, or DS6000 series system. The DS CLI is available with the DS8800 models at no additional charge. The DS CLI client is available for the AIX, HP-UX, Linux®, Novell NetWare, Sun Solaris, and Microsoft® Windows® operating system environments.

  • IBM System Storage DS open API: DS Open API supports routine LUN management activities, such as LUN creation, mapping and masking, and the management of point-in-time copy and remote mirroring. It supports these activities through the use of a standard interface as defined by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S). DS Open API is implemented through the IBM System Storage Common Information Model Agent (CIM Agent) for the DS Open API, a middleware application designed to provide a CIM-compliant interface. The interface is designed to allow Tivoli and third-party CIM-compliant software management tools to discover, monitor, and control DS8000 series systems. The DS Open API and CIM Agent are provided with the DS8800 models at no additional charge.
  • IBM System Storage multi-path subsystem device driver (SDD): SDD is designed to provide load balancing and enhanced data availability capability in configurations with more than one I/O path between the host server and the DS8000 series system. Load balancing can help reduce or eliminate I/O bottlenecks that occur when many I/O operations are directed to common devices via the same I/O path. SDD also helps eliminate a potential single point of failure by automatically rerouting I/O operations when a path failure occurs, thereby supporting enhanced data availability capability. SDD is provided with the DS8800 models at no additional charge.

Limitations

Conversions between warranty machine types are not supported.

Management limitations

  • For the Dynamic Volume Expansion function, volumes that are expanded may not be in Copy Services relationships (Point-in-Time Copy, FlashCopy SE, Metro Mirror, Global Mirror, Metro/Global Mirror, and z/OS Global Mirror) while expansion is taking place
  • SSPC is required for remote GUI access

Disruptive activities

  • Removal of an expansion unit model from the base unit model. Data may not be preserved during this activity.
  • Converting a system utilizing Business Class cabling (FC #1250) to standard cabling (FC #1246)

The deactivation of an activated licensed function, or a lateral change or reduction in the license scope, is a non-disruptive activity which will occur at the next machine IML.

  • A lateral change is defined as changing the license scope from FB to CKD or from CKD to FB.
  • A reduction is defined as changing the license scope from ALL to FB or from ALL to CKD.
  • The amount of physical capacity within a 2421 system that can be logically configured for use will be enforced by the 2421 Licensed Machine Code to maintain compliance with the extent of IBM authorization established for licensed functions activated on the machine.

Encryption limitations

Plant configured systems with Encryption Drive Set support (feature #1751) can support field installation of encrypted drives. Existing DS8000 systems or systems lacking the Encryption Drive Set support feature will not support encryption drive sets.

Only FDE (Full disk Encryption) drives can be supported in a Encryption enabled system

Encryption deadlock recovery disable key is not supported.

SSD limitations

SSD drive sets are not supported in RAID-6 or RAID-10 configurations. Intermixing of drives is not supported the entire system.

Model conversion/upgrade limitations

  • No brand model conversion from 921/931/9A2/9B2/92E/9AE/922/932/941/94E to 951/95E
  • Model conversion/upgrades are only available through IBM Global Financing.
  • Contact IBM Global Financing for any model conversion/upgrade solutions.
  • FC #1250 HD Business Class Cabling reduces the total number of drives per system to 576. This restriction can be removed by converting to standard cabling (FC #1246), which is disruptive. This conversion is only available via RPQ.

Physical configuration planning

Physical configuration planning is a customer responsibility. A marketing specialist can help plan and select the DS8000 series physical configuration and features. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8800 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-2297).

Capacity and performance planning assistance is also available. Through the use of Disk Magic, a disk marketing specialist can help plan and anticipate performance characteristics for specific workloads by modeling proposed configurations.

Installation planning

Installation planning is a customer responsibility. Information about planning the installation of a DS8000 series, including equipment, site, and power requirements, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8800 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-2297).

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 (IGS) will also apply and/or modify the 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 worldwide Web. Not all Licensed Machine Code changes may be available via the support Web site. If the machine does not function as warranted and a problem can be resolved through the application of downloadable Licensed Machine Code, the customer is 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. A request can be made for IBM to install downloadable Licensed Machine Code changes, however there may be a charge for that service.

Calculating physical and effective capacity

Refer to the IBM System Storage DS8800 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-2297) for capacity calculation guidelines.

Encryption planning

Encryption planning is a customer responsibility. There are three major planning components to the implementation of an encryption environment. Review all planning requirements and include them in the installation considerations.

  • Key server planning
  • Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager (TKLM) planning
  • Full Disk Encryption Activation review planning

Key server planning

Key server planning is a customer responsibility. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8800 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-2297).

DS8800 requires at least two key servers and associated software for each site which has one or more encryption-enabled DS8000 systems, according to the encryption best practices. One server must be isolated and the others can be of any supported key server configuration. Any site that operates independently of other sites must have key servers for the encryption enabled DS8000 systems at that site.

  • DS8000 Encryption environments are recommended to configure external Laptop HMC for high availability (feature #1130).
  • It is the customer's responsibility to replicate any key labels across all key servers attached to a given encryption-enabled DS8000 before configuring that key label on the DS8000.

Dual platform key server planning

DS8000 supports the ability to configure two independent key labels for each encryption-enabled DS8000. This capability allows the use of two independent key server platforms when one or both key server platforms are using secure-key mode key stores, allowing the isolated key server platform to be used in conjunction with a second key server platform that is operating with a secure-key mode key store.

For customers needing dual platform key server support on DS8000, the installation of TKLM IFIX 2 (TKLM Version 1.0.0.2) is recommended to support displaying both key labels in the GUI. Additionally, for customers who intend to replicate keys between separate zSeries® Sysplexes using ICSF with the JCECCARACFKS key store in secure key mode and with the secure key configuration flag set in TKLM, TKLM Fix Pack 3 (TKLM Version 1.0.0.3) is required.

Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager planning

The DS8000 series supports IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager V1.0 and V2.0

  • IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager Quick Start Guide (GI11-8738-01)
  • IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager Installation and Configuration Guide (SC27-2741)
  • IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager Program Directory (for z/OS) (GI11-4300)

Full Disk Encryption Activation review planning

Full Disk Encryption Activation is a customer responsibility. IBM Full Disk Encryption offerings must be activated prior to use. This activation is part of the installation and configuration steps required for use of the technology. This installation and activation review is performed by the IBM Systems and Technology Lab Services group.
