  • Dual-port drives with automatic drive failure detection
  • Distributed RAID levels 1, 5, and 6
  • Redundant hardware, including power supplies and fans
  • Hot-swappable and client replaceable components
  • Automated path failover support for the data path between the server and the drives

Rich set of functional capabilities standard with every system

As a member of the FlashSystem family, FlashSystem 5200 leverages IBM Spectrum Virtualize functions and management tools. The following functions are included with FlashSystem 5200 models:

  • Distributed RAID 1, 5, and 6 provides the flexibility to choose the level of data protection required.
  • Virtualization of internal storage enables rapid, flexible provisioning and simple configuration changes.
  • Thin provisioning optimizes efficiency by allocating disk storage space in a flexible manner among multiple users, based on the minimum space required by each user at any given time. With thin provisioning, applications consume only the space they are actually using, not the total space that has been allocated to them.
  • Data reduction pools increase existing infrastructure capacity utilization by leveraging the following efficiency functions:
    • Automatically deallocate and reclaim capacity of thin-provisioned volumes containing deleted data and, for the first time, enable this reclaimed capacity to be reused by other volumes.
    • Block deduplication for increased efficiency of storage usage by utilizing pointers in duplicate blocks rather than keeping multiple copies.
    • Compression that improves efficiency by storing more active primary data in the same physical disk space.
  • Dynamic migration delivers efficiency and business value through a nondisruptive migration function.
  • FlashCopy® enables creation of copies of data for backup, parallel processing, testing, and development, and allows the copies to be available almost immediately. FlashSystem 5200 supports up to 8,192 FlashCopy targets per system.
  • Graphical user interface delivers intuitive data management designed with point-and-click system management capabilities.

Encryption for enhanced data security

FlashSystem 5200 supports encryption for data at rest. Encryption is performed by the control enclosure for data stored within the entire system, the FlashSystem 5200 control enclosure, and all attached FlashSystem 5200 expansion enclosures.

Encryption is enabled on FlashSystem 5200 through the acquisition of the Encryption Enablement feature. This feature enables encryption on the entire system.

The Encryption USB Flash Drives (four pack) feature or IBM Security™ Key Manager (SKLM) are required for encryption keys management.

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to the full warranty period specified by IBM. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

For complete information about the IBM Storage Expert Care Service and Support offerings, see Services Announcement ZS21-0002, dated February 9, 2021.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically through an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Client Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information.
