Each controller supports up to three 1 Gb Ethernet ports for management and redundant data paths.

    IBM TotalStorage DS400 Storage Subsystem

    IBM TotalStorage DS400 Storage Subsystem is an entry level, cost effective workgroup storage subsystem for xSeries customers. Offering high value SCSI disk drive technology with performance oriented FC host fabric ports, the solution can be used in either DAS or SAN environments for shared storage. The TotalStorage DS400 subsystem uses a rack-mountable 3U, 14 U320 SCSI drive enclosure with redundant hot-swap power and cooling modules. Additionally, the enclosure supports either one or two controllers for high availability configurations. Each controller supports two 2 Gb FC ports for high bandwidth and redundant data paths. Where additional capacity is required, the external SCSI channels can be enabled to expand to up to two additional EXP400 storage enclosures for a total of 40 disk drives or 5.8 TB, using 146 GB drives.

    Advanced software features

    Advanced software features including access control lists and online array and LUN expansion provide the flexibility to configure storage according to your usage needs while also providing the ability to grow storage on the fly. These features enable IT managers to share storage across multiple application servers. Optional software features, such as Flashcopy and Metro Mirror, are made available through software keys which can be purchased separately. Flashcopy technology can reduce storage backup windows and improve storage utilization by isolating a separate point in time volume which can be mounted and used for backup to tape, nearline storage, or report generation with little or no impact to production data. Metro mirroring capabilities enable improved disaster recovery implementations to help protect critical data.

    Storage Management

    Storage management via IBM ServeRAID Manager is easy to use, allowing you to manage the DS300 subsystem, DS400 subsystem, and direct attach ServeRAID storage with the same management console. The intuitive management GUI contains many useful features including product specific configuration wizards to simplify initial storage setup, and an extensive online help library.

    The IBM TotalStorage DS300 Storage Subsystem is an entry level, cost effective workgroup storage subsystem for xSeries customers. Offering high value SCSI disk drive technology with cost effective Ethernet data ports, the solution can be used in either DAS or SAN environments for shared storage. The new TotalStorage DS300 Storage Subsystem uses a rack-mountable 3U, 14 U320 SCSI drive enclosure with redundant hot-swap power and cooling modules. Additionally, the enclosure supports either one or two controllers for high availability configurations. Each controller supports up to three 1Gb Ethernet ports for management and redundant data paths.

    Advanced Software Features

    Advanced software features including access control lists and online array and LUN expansion provide the flexibility to configure storage according to customer usage needs while also providing the ability to grow storage on the fly. These features enable IT managers to share storage across multiple application servers. Optional software features such as Flashcopy and Metro Mirror are made available through software keys which can be purchased separately. Flashcopy technology can reduce storage backup windows and improve storage utilization by isolating a separate point in time volume which can be mounted and used for backup to tape, nearline storage, or report generation with little or no impact to production data. Metro Mirror capabilities enable improved disaster recovery implementations to help protect critical data.

    Storage Management

    Storage management via IBM ServeRAID Manager is easy to use, allowing customers to manage the DS300 subsystem, DS400 subsystem, and direct attach ServeRAID storage with the same management console. The intuitive management GUI contains many useful features including product specific configuration wizards to simplify initial storage setup, and an extensive online help library. IBM ServeRAID Manager supports the most common operating environments for workgroup applications, including Windows, Netware, and Linux.
