Description
Bottom rule

The IBM System Storage TS7650G ProtecTIER De-duplication Gateway is a virtual tape library (VTL) that appears to backup applications as one or many automated tape libraries, without changing existing backup policies, practices, or procedures. The backup application accesses virtual tape drives, robotics, and cartridges just as it would in a physical tape library environment.

This solution is designed to support:

  • Backup applications designed for use with tape storage
  • Use of disk as a backup medium with existing tape backup applications
  • LTO-2 and DLT tape emulation
  • Scalability up to 1 PB

Typical VTL solutions provide about 2:1 compression of the data backed up. The IBM System Storage TS7650G ProtecTIER De-duplication Gateway, featuring HyperFactor data de-duplication technology, can provide up to 25:1 or more data reduction, dramatically increasing storage capacity utilization.

Data protection pain points in the data center

Enterprise data centers require high-performance, high-capacity, reliable, and scalable data protection solutions. Delivering high level data protection is increasingly difficult for many reasons:

  • Information volume is growing rapidly and must be protected.
  • Shrinking backup and restore windows require more efficient, high-performance data protection solutions.
  • Pressure to lower capital expenditures for data infrastructure is driving the need for a simpler way to deploy and manage data protection solutions.
  • Increased need to more efficiently manage disk space of existing infrastructure by improving utilization of current hardware.
  • Increasing need to support more efficient, easier to manage, disaster recovery strategies

The IBM System Storage TS7650G ProtecTIER De-duplication Gateway features HyperFactor technology, which provides in-line de-duplication capabilities and boasts the following core differentiators:

  • In-line de-duplication: Helps avoid disruption to data protection processes.
  • High performance: Cluster topology offers sustainable throughput of up to 900 MB/s in-line de-duplication capability regardless of repository size.
  • Flexible disk-based storage options offer configurations for different environments.
  • Increased capacity: Enables up to 25X increase in usable capacity.
  • Scalability: One gateway server can help protect up to 1 PB of user data.
  • Higher availability: Clustered configuration provides hardware redundancy in the event of a node failure.
  • Data integrity: HyperFactor technology helps avoid "hash collisions" or "false positive" data matches.
  • Data Agnostic: Not sensitive to data type, file name, or data structure of the specific backup application (unlike content-aware approaches).

The IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2 software supports attachment to various IBM and non-IBM disk subsystems. Refer to the IBM TS7650G hardware announcement listed in the Reference information section. For current listings, visit Systems Storage Interoperations Center (SSIC)

Product positioning
Bottom rule

The IBM System Storage TS7650G ProtecTIER De-duplication Gateway with IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2.1 software is designed to be a high-performance, high-capacity open systems data protection solution for large and mid-sized data center environments. The TS7650G solution can aid in data protection by helping deliver a significant increase in operational efficiency, throughput, and data management capabilities via tape virtualization and data reduction, namely:

  • Addressing shrinking backup windows with faster backup and recovery
  • Reducing costs and increasing storage capacity utilization
  • Improving the reliability and quality of backups

The TS7650G solution is a tape virtualization data de-duplication server for open systems attached to SAN environments over Fibre Channel (FC) connection. It can help data centers improve their data protection operations, while reducing the storage required. The TS7650G presents itself to backup applications as a standard tape device, while offering the benefit of disk-based storage for fast backup and restores. The TS7650G features HyperFactor technology, a data de-duplication technology which searches for redundancy in the data while it is backed up. It stores only the unique data, but tracks all references, maintaining the quality of backup data. In addition, with the space saved through elimination of redundant data, organizations can retain more backups "on-line" for a longer period of time, which can help enable them to recover critical data and files more quickly.

The IBM System Storage TS7650G ProtecTIER De-duplication Gateway server differs from many other open systems virtual tape offerings through its in-line de-duplication performance. Comparable offerings perform the actual de-duplication as a "post-process," which can elongate the backup cycle and increase disk storage requirements (and cost).

IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2.1 -- New orders

Orders for the Linux operating system prerequisite

Order and registration of the Red Hat software maintenance license and subscription specified in Software requirements is a customer responsibility. Order directly from the vendor. Confer with your IBM representative if you have any questions regarding the correct specifications for this order.

Single server configurations

Order one ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2 use authorization feature for each ProtecTIER TS7650G (IBM 5839-DD1) server configured.

Order basic capacity authorizations corresponding to the total terabytes (TB) managed by each ProtecTIER server.

TB capacity ordering is by cumulative tier. Starting with tier 1 (1-12 TB), order the quantity from each successive tier required to reach the total TB managed by the server, filling each tier in succession.

The tier 6 per TB 251+ feature is limited to a quantity of 250. If the total capacity managed by the ProtecTIER server is 500 TB or less, order the authorizations above 250 TB using the tier 6 per TB 251+ feature, to reach the required total. If the total capacity managed by the server is greater than 500 TB but less than 750 TB on a new order, order the per 250 TB 251+ tier 6 feature, with an additional quantity of per TB 251+ features (up to 250), to meet the required total of managed TB authorizations. For total managed capacity at or above 750 TB and below 1000 TB in a new order, order quantity 2 of the per 250 TB, 251+ feature, to reach the required range before using the tier 6 per TB 251+ features to reach the exact total.

Clustered server orders

Order optional cluster authorization (in addition to capacity authorizations) corresponding to the total storage capacity managed by ProtecTIER clustered servers at the site.

Cluster orders require quantity 2 ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2 (per server) use authorization features for each cluster.

Order basic capacity authorizations for the total storage managed by the cluster (commonly configured for both servers in the cluster).

In addition, order cluster capacity authorizations in the same amount as base capacity authorizations.
Note: Cluster support requires cluster feature enablement on the corresponding 3958-DD1 hardware order. Refer to the hardware announcement listed in the Reference information section.

Capacity upgrade orders

Customer representatives should be prepared to furnish the ProtecTIER server serial or system identification unit (SIU) for the server (or servers in a cluster) being upgraded with additional capacity.

Upgrade orders using cumulative tiers are made starting within the tier representing the current capacity authorized (for capacity with current Software Maintenance).

Once pricing tier 6 has been reached (beyond 250 TB), all subsequent upgrade orders are made from tier 6, so long as Software Maintenance at or above that authorization level is current. Single capacity upgrade orders of less than 250 TB total can be made from tier 6 using the per TB 251+ order feature. For single orders from tier 6 of greater than 250 TB, use a combination of the per 250 TB and per TB tier 6 order features to reach the required total.

Order Software Maintenance registration corresponding to all product features and quantities ordered, for both new and capacity upgrade orders. Refer to the Software Maintenance section.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage® Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

This software license includes Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) agreement applies for maintenance and does not require customer signatures.

The program's LI will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/guides/handbook.html

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

All distributed software licenses include Software Maintenance (Software Subscription and Technical Support) for a period of 12 months from the date of acquisition, providing a streamlined way to acquire IBM software and assure technical support coverage for all licenses. Extending coverage for a total of three years from date of acquisition may be elected.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center.
