IBM SVC, a member of the IBM Storwize® family, is a combined hardware and software storage virtualization system with a single point of control for storage resources. SVC includes many functions traditionally deployed separately in disk systems and by including these in a virtualization system, SVC standardizes functions across virtualized storage for greater flexibility and potentially lower costs. SVC improves business application availability and delivers greater resource utilization so you can get the most from your storage resources, and achieve a simpler, more scalable, cost-efficient IT infrastructure.

SVC Storage Engine Model DH8 and SVC SFF Expansion Enclosure Model 24F deliver increased performance, expanded connectivity, compression acceleration, and additional internal flash storage capacity.

SVC Storage Engine Model DH8, which is based on IBM System x server technology, consists of one Xeon E5 v2 Series eight-core processor and 32 GB of memory. It includes 1 Gb Ethernet ports standard for 1 Gb iSCSI connectivity and supports up to three I/O adapter cards for 8 Gb FC and 10 Gb iSCSI/FCoE connectivity. It also includes two integrated AC power supplies and battery units replacing the uninterruptable power supply feature required on the previous generation storage engine models.

The Model DH8 storage engine offers several features for Real-time Compression workloads, including a second Xeon E5 v2 Series eight-core processor with 32 GB of memory and up to two compression accelerator cards for hardware-assisted compression.

SVC SFF Expansion Enclosure Model 24F supports up to twenty-four 2.5-inch 12 Gb SAS flash (solid state) drives. Up to two expansion enclosures are supported by a Model DH8 node pair or I/O group delivering up to 48 flash drives and 38.4 TB of internal raw capacity.

SVC Storage Engines can be clustered to help deliver greater performance, bandwidth, and scalability. An SVC clustered system can contain up to four node pairs or I/O groups. Model DH8 storage engines can be added into existing SVC clustered systems that include previous generation storage engine models.

All SVC functional capabilities are provided through IBM Storwize Family Software for IBM SAN Volume Controller. For additional information on SVC functions capabilities and software, refer to the materials listed in the Reference information section.
