Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Storwize V7000 V6.2.0 delivers improved tracking with the introduction of real-time performance monitoring. Immediate performance information can be received, including CPU utilization and I/O rates, to monitor environmental changes, troubleshoot, and when pairing up the information with historical detailed data from Tivoli® Storage Productivity Center, can be better positioned to develop the best performance solutions.

VMware virtual environments can be improved with Storwize V7000 by using the vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI). This new API delegates certain VMware functions to the Storwize V7000 for enhanced performance. In the vSphere 4.1 release, this offload capability to Storwize V7000 supports full copy, block zeroing, and hardware-assisted locking. The introduction of 10 GbE hardware for the Storwize V7000 allows continued focus on cost efficiency with higher network performance by offering 10 Gigabit iSCSI host attachment. The Storwize V7000 also provides up to twice the capacity and twice the throughput to support business growth by providing clustered systems that include up to two Storwize V7000 control enclosures. With external storage virtualization, the Storwize V7000 is scalable to manage up to 32 PB of storage by allowing managed disks to be as large as 256 TB on select storage systems.

Storwize V7000 interoperability now supports managing additional storage products, including HP StorageWorks P9500 Disk Array, Hitachi Data Systems Virtual Storage Platform, Texas Memory Systems RamSan-620, and EMC VNX models.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM Storwize V7000 V6.2 highlights include support for real-time performance monitoring, VMware VAAI, and 10 Gigabit iSCSI connectivity. The following functions, features, and support options help maximize the benefits of Storwize V7000.

Real-time performance monitoring

IBM Storwize V7000 V6.2.0 provides improved tracking by introducing real-time performance monitoring. Real-time performance monitoring gathers the following system level performance statistics:

  • CPU utilization
  • Port utilization and I/O rates
  • Volume and MDisk I/O rates
  • Bandwidth
  • Latency

Real-time performance monitoring can immediately track environmental changes and for performance troubleshooting. The sampling rate can be set as low as five seconds. Historical data is kept for about five minutes, therefore Tivoli Storage Productivity Center can capture more detailed performance information and to analyze trends in order to get a complete picture when developing the best performance solutions.

VMware vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI)

VMware virtual environments can be improved with Storwize V7000 by using VAAI. This new API delegates certain VMware functions to Storwize V7000 to enhance performance. In the vSphere 4.1 release, this offload capability to Storwize V7000 supports:

  • Full copy: Enables the Storwize V7000 to make full copies of data without requiring the ESX server to read and write the data
  • Block zeroing: Enables Storwize V7000 to zero out large numbers of blocks, shortening the time needed to provision virtual machines
  • Hardware-assisted locking: Improves the scalability of large ESX server farms sharing volumes on the Storwize V7000 by providing an alternate means to protect the metadata for VMFS cluster-file systems

Plug-In for VMware vCenter

The Storwize V7000 Plug-In for VMware vCenter allows VMware administrators to monitor and manage Storwize V7000 volumes from the VMware software. This plug-in enables a common set of Storwize V7000 tasks to be performed from VMware vCenter without needing to switch between user interfaces. This plug-in will initially be certified for use with Storwize V7000 V6.1.

10 Gigabit iSCSI

The new 10 Gigabit Ethernet hardware for the Storwize V7000 have the ability to attach hosts to the Storwize V7000 using 10 Gigabit iSCSI.

Clustered systems

Storwize V7000 now allows clustered systems with up to two Storwize V7000 control enclosures. Each control enclosure in a clustered system has the advantage of processing unique host system I/O workloads while configuration and management of the storage is performed at the system level. This provides up to twice the capacity and twice the throughput to support business growth, and it enables more consolidation, including external virtualized storage, for greater efficiency.

256 TB managed disks and 32 PB managed storage

Storwize V7000 now allows virtualization of managed disks up to 256 TB in capacity for select storage systems, improved from 2 TB. With the use of 8 GB extent sizes, one Storwize V7000 system can now effectively manage up to 32 PB of storage, up from the 8 PB maximum. For a list of the storage systems supporting managed disks up to 256 TB, visit

http://www.ibm.com/storage/support/2145

FlashCopy target as Remote Copy source

Using a FlashCopy target volume as the source volume in a remote copy relationship is now available in SVC V6.2. This complements the current capability for remote copy target volumes to be source volumes in a FlashCopy relationship, and allows administrators greater flexibility in setting up disaster recovery configurations.

Revised licensing rules for Remote Mirroring Software (5639-RM1)

Rather than purchasing a license for IBM Storwize V7000 Remote Mirroring Software (5639-RM1) for every licensed enclosure (internal and external) managed by the IBM Storwize V7000 Disk System at both the primary and the secondary systems as first released, some customers will benefit from the following modifications to the 5639-RM1 licensing rules:

  • For primary and secondary systems with differing numbers of enclosures using Remote Mirroring, the number of 5639-RM1 licenses needed for each system is the number of enclosures on the smaller of the two systems (see scenarios 1 and 2 below)
  • When multiple production systems replicate to a single disaster recovery system, the number of 5639-RM1 licenses at the disaster recover system must equal the sum of the 5639-RM1 licenses at the production systems (see scenario 3 below)

The following are examples of how to license Remote Mirroring Software (5639-RM1) under the modified licensing rules:

Scenario 1: The primary system is a four-enclosure Storwize V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has four 5639-VM1 licenses. The secondary system is a two-enclosure Storwize V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has two 5639-VM1 licenses. The Storwize V7000 Remote Mirroring licensing would be as follows: two 5639-RM1 licenses for the primary system plus two 5639-RM1 licenses for the secondary system, for a total of four 5639-RM1 licenses required.

Scenario 2: The primary system is a one-enclosure Storwize V7000 managing a DS5020 consisting of three enclosures, therefore it has one 5639-VM1 license plus three 5639-EV1 licenses. The secondary system is a three-enclosure Storwize V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has three 5639-VM1 licenses. The Storwize V7000 Remote Mirroring licensing would be as follows: three 5639-RM1 licenses for the primary system plus three 5639-RM1 licenses for the secondary system, for a total of six 5639-RM1 licenses required.

Scenario 3: There are three primary systems replicating to a central disaster recovery system. The three primary systems are as follows:

  • A two-enclosure Storwize V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has two 5639-VM1 licenses
  • A one-enclosure Storwize V7000 managing a DS5020 consisting of three enclosures, therefore it has one 5639-VM1 license plus three 5639-EV1 licenses
  • A one-enclosure Storwize V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has one 5639-VM1 license.

The central disaster recovery system is a nine-enclosure Storwize V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has nine 5639-VM1 licenses. The Storwize V7000 Remote Mirroring licensing would be as follows: a sum of seven 5639-RM1 licenses for the primary systems plus seven 5639-RM1 licenses for the central disaster recovery system, for a total of fourteen 5639-RM1 licenses required.

Added Interoperability

Storwize V7000 now supports many more heterogeneous data center environments with the addition of interoperability support for:

  • EMC VNX models
  • HP StorageWorks P9500 Disk Array
  • Hitachi Data Systems Virtual Storage Platform

Auto renewal registration of software maintenance for Storwize V7000 5639-VM1 (Feature number 9000)

Software maintenance renewals in the AAS ordering system for Storwize V7000 5639-VM1 software are now available via a services contract. Selecting feature number 9000 with the software maintenance registration ordered with 5639-VM1 indicates that the customer wishes to continue their software maintenance on a services contract at the end of the initial software maintenance term. Feature number 9000 is available on the following Storwize V7000 base software maintenance registration product IDs:

  • 5639-SM1 - 1 Year Software Maintenance Registration
  • 5639-SM6 - 2 Year Software Maintenance Registration
  • 5639-SM3 - 3 Year Software Maintenance Registration
  • 5639-SM7 - 4 Year Software Maintenance Registration
  • 5639-SM8 - 5 Year Software Maintenance Registration

Note: Auto renewal services are not available in all countries or for all initial software maintenance contract terms. Refer to the services announcement found in the Reference information section for more details.

45-Day migration allowance

With the benefit of external virtualization, the Storwize V7000 allows customers to bring a system into their storage environment and very quickly and easily migrate data from existing storage systems to the Storwize V7000. In order to facilitate this migration, IBM allows customers 45 days from the date of purchase of the Storwize V7000 system to use the external virtualization function for the purpose of migrating data from an existing storage system to the Storwize V7000 system. Any use thereafter, and ongoing use of the external virtualization function of Storwize V7000, requires the purchase of a Storwize V7000 External Virtualization license (5639-EV1) at a quantity equal to the capacity managed under the Storwize V7000 system. Migrations performed at later points in time that are to completely replace other storage systems with the Storwize V7000, thereby requiring temporary virtualization of that external storage system to perform that replacement activity, are granted a 45-day period for use of external virtualization without having to purchase a license to complete such a migration effort. Customers must make their sales representative aware of their intent and when they will be starting this migration so that an end date can be tracked. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that they are properly licensed for all external storage managed by Storwize V7000 after those 45 days.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

IBM Storwize V7000 Software V6.2.0 is capable, as of June 10, 2011, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.
