Planning information

Customer responsibilities

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 DS8880 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-8525).

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 DS8880 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-8525).

Logical configuration planning and application

Logical configuration planning is a customer responsibility. Logical configuration refers to the creation of RAID ranks, volumes, and 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, and also the DS8000 GUI.

IBM Global Services will also apply or modify the logical configuration (fee-based service).

Licensed Machine Code planning and application

IBM may release changes to the DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code. IBM plans to make the most current DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code changes available for download by the DS8000 series system from the IBM System Storage technical support website. Not all Licensed Machine Code changes may be available through the support website. 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 DS8880 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-8525) 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.

  • Storage Appliance planning
  • Security Key Lifecycle Manager planning
  • Encryption activation review planning

Storage Appliance planning

Storage Appliance planning is a customer responsibility. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM Storage Appliance Guide (SC27-8520).

According to encryption best practices, DS8880 requires at least two storage appliances and associated software for each site which has one or more encryption-enabled DS8000 system. One server must be isolated and the others can be of any supported appliance configuration. Any site that operates independently of other sites must have storage appliances for the encryption-enabled DS8000 systems at that site.

It is the customer's responsibility to replicate any key labels and their associated key material across all storage appliances attached to a given encryption-enabled DS8000 before configuring that key label on the DS8000.

Dual storage appliance server planning

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

For customers desiring NIST 800-131a compliance, IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (SKLM), formerly known as IBM Tivoli® Key Lifecycle Manager, V2.5, or later, is required.

IBM SKLM planning

The DS8000 series supports IBM SKLM V2.5, or later.

Program number VRM Program name
5724-T60 2.5.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for Distributed
5641-KL1/3 2.6.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for Distributed
5698-B35 1.1.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for z/OS
5698-B42 1.1.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for Storage

To support enterprise-wide, encryption-key management, a new set of pricing metrics is now available. These pricing metrics are simpler and more comprehensive for devices, users, and server capacity.

For self-encrypting disk drives, the metric is per client device with the disk drive feature number.

For more information about the licensing requirements and pricing of the metric, refer to Software Announcement 213-470, dated October 29, 2013.

Isolated key server ordering options

  • Single/dual storage appliance server - Feature numbers 1761 and 1762 are available through Machine type Model 2421-AP1: New storage appliance server options are available in addition to the existing SKLM isolated key manager (feature number 0204).
  • Customer acquired isolated key server: Refer to the IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager Installation and Configuration Guide (SC27-5335) for hardware and operating system requirements.

Note: Regardless of the ordering method, customers will need to acquire an SKLM license for use of the SKLM software ordered separately from the stand-alone server hardware.
Note: The licensing for SKLM includes both an install license for the SKLM management software and a license for the encrypting drives.

IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager V2.6 English publications may be viewed online, at electronic availability, in IBM Knowledge Center.

To access the IBM Publications Center portal, go to IBM Publications Center website.

Encryption activation review planning

Encryption activation is a customer responsibility. IBM 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.
