IBM FlashSystem® 9100 utility models provide a variable capacity storage offering. These models offer a fixed capacity, with a base subscription of 35% of the total capacity.

IBM® Storage Insights (free edition or pro) is used to monitor system usage, and capacity used beyond the base 35% is billed on a per month, per terabyte basis. This enables you to grow or shrink usage, and only pay for the configured capacity.

The system is leased through IBM Global Finance on a three-year lease. The variable capacity billing is handled through the Common Business Solutions billing system.

Support for an 800 GB, 2.5-inch NVMe flash drive for the FlashSystem 9110 and 9150 systems has been added to IBM Spectrum Virtualize™ version 8.2.0.

Overview

Top rule

IBM FlashSystem 9100 utility models are intended for use where variable billing is required to meet a solution's requirements.

IBM Spectrum Virtualize Software for FlashSystem 9110 V8 (5639-FA2) or FlashSystem 9150 V8 (5639-FA3) is used to manage the system and the optional features under the base software (Easy Tier®, FlashCopy®, Remote Mirror).

IBM Storage Insights (free edition or pro) is used to monitor the system and is required in the utility model space.

The local project office will work with the Storage Insights data to determine the actual physical data provisioned in the system. This data will be compared to the base system capacity subscription, and any provisioned capacity beyond that base subscription will be billed per terabyte, per month, on a quarterly basis.

Description

Top rule

IBM FlashSystem utility models are provided for customers who can benefit from a variable capacity system, where billing is based only on actually provisioned space. The hardware is leased through IBM Global Finance on a three-year lease, which entitles the customer to utilize up to 35% of the total system capacity at no additional cost. If storage needs increase beyond that 35% capacity, usage is billed based on the average daily provisioned capacity per terabyte, per month, on a quarterly basis.

Example: A customer has a FlashSystem 9100 utility model with 4.8 TB NVMe drives, for a total system capacity of 115 TB. The base subscription for such a system is 40.25 TB. During the months where the average daily usage is below 40.25 TB, there is no additional billing.

The system will monitor daily provisioned capacity and will average those daily usage rates over the month term. The result is the average daily usage for the month.

If a customer uses 45 TB, 42.5 TB, and 50 TB in three consecutive months, Storage Insights will calculate the overage as follows, rounding to the nearest terabyte:

Average daily Base Overage To be billed
45 40.25 4.75 5 TB
42.5 40.25 2.25 2 TB
50 40.25 9.75 10 TB

The total capacity billed at the end of the quarter will be 17 TB per month in this example.

Flash drive expansions may be ordered with the system, in all supported configurations.

The local project office will compile the usage information from Storage Insights on a quarterly basis. This data will be compared to the base system capacity subscription, and any provisioned capacity beyond that base subscription will be billed per terabyte, per month, on a quarterly basis. The calculated usage is based on the average use over a given month. In a highly variable environment, such as managed or cloud service providers, this subscription enables the system to be utilized only as much as is necessary during any given month. Usage may increase or decrease, and will be billed accordingly. Provisioned capacity is considered capacity that is reserved by the system. In thick-provisioned environments, this will be the capacity that is allocated to a host, whether it has data written or not. For thin-provisioned environments, the data that is actually written is used. This is because of the different ways in which thick and thin provisioning utilize flash drive space.

Support for an 800 GB, 2.5-inch NVMe flash drive for FlashSystem 9110 and 9150 systems has been added to IBM Spectrum Virtualize version 8.2.0. This drive adds a new capacity point to the existing systems, delivering improved flexibility in configuration options.

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. 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 effective on its date of installation. 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.

To obtain copies of the IBM Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or IBM. 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.

Extended Warranty Service

This product is provided with one year of standard warranty. For your convenience, IBM has provided two additional years of extended warranty services to make this offering. Consult with your advisors about the appropriate financial treatment for this offering.

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 Customer 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.

On-site Service

At IBM's discretion, you will receive specified CRU service, or IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service level is:

  • IBM On-site Repair 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, same day response.

Warranty service

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to their customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

International Warranty Service

International Warranty Service allows you to relocate any machine that is eligible for International Warranty Service and receive continued warranty service in any country where the IBM machine is serviced. If you move your machine to a different country, you are required to report the machine information to your Business Partner or IBM representative.

The warranty service type and the service level provided in the servicing country may be different from that provided in the country in which the machine was purchased. Warranty service will be provided with the prevailing warranty service type and service level available for the eligible machine type in the servicing country, and the warranty period observed will be that of the country in which the machine was purchased.

The following types of information can be found on the International Warranty Service website

  • Machine warranty entitlement and eligibility
  • Directory of contacts by country with technical support contact information
  • Announcement Letters
Warranty service upgrades

During the warranty period, warranty service upgrades provide an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. See the Warranty services section for additional details.
