Description

IT organizations continue to face unprecedented data growth as more platforms, applications, and users connect to the data center network. In turn, the storage network infrastructure must continue evolving to enable fast, continuous, and cost-effective access to mission-critical data from anywhere in the world.

To address this challenge, the IBM System Storage SAN06B-R is designed to provide reliable and cost-effective network infrastructure for remote data replication, backup, and migration. Leveraging next-generation Fibre Channel and advanced Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) technology, the IBM System Storage SAN06B-R is designed to provide a flexible and extensible platform to move data. Whether configured for simple point- to-point or comprehensive multisite SAN extension, SAN06B-R addresses business continuity, compliance, and global data access requirements. Up to 16 8 Gbps Fibre Channel ports and 6 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports provide Fibre Channel and FCIP bandwidth, port density, and throughput for application performance over WAN links.

The IBM System Storage SAN06B-R Extension Switch combines Fibre Channel switching and routing capabilities with hardware-assisted Fibre Channel over Internet Protocol (FCIP) traffic forwarding over IP wide area networks (WAN). The SAN06B-R is designed to provide remote storage and SAN connectivity. It integrates a variety of capabilities, such as Fibre Channel routing, Storage-Optimized TCP (SO-TCP), hardware-based compression, write and read acceleration for disk and tape, IP Security (IPSec) encryption, FCIP trunking and adaptive rate limiting to help deliver a high performance, reliable, and secure distance-connectivity solution. This makes the SAN06B-R suitable for a variety of IT initiatives, including business continuance, site mirroring, replication, and data migration across virtually unlimited distances.

Based on the fifth-generation Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) technology combined with high performing network processors, the SAN06B-R is designed to provide FCIP solution designed to improve application performance over IP WANs while supporting reliability and availability and Fibre Channel port speed at 8 Gbps. In addition, this platform offers a number of features designed to enhance performance and manageability of the switch.

The SAN06B-R is designed to utilize IP WAN transport to extend open systems and mainframe disk and tape storage applications over distances to meet a wide range of business continuity, data retention, and global data access requirements using advanced Fibre Channel frame compression, disk and tape protocol acceleration, and FCIP networking technology. Unique performance and optimization technologies include the following:

  • FCIP trunking
  • Adaptive rate limiting
  • FCIP quality of service
  • Open systems tape pipelining
  • Storage-optimized TCP

The IBM System Storage SAN06B-R is designed to support the following performance and optimization technologies.

FCIP trunking is designed to virtualize two or more TCP connections as part of a single FCIP tunnel. FCIP Trunking combines multiple IP source and destination address pairs into a logical high- bandwidth FCIP trunk spanning multiple physical ports to provide load balancing and network failure resiliency. These connections, called circuits, will be explicitly configured to be part of an FCIP tunnel to increase the tunnel bandwidth and provide failover paths in the event of a network failure. The functionality of the FCIP trunking and the additional TCP connections is transparent to the applications using the FCIP tunnel.

Adaptive Rate Limiting feature is designed to meet minimum bandwidth requirements for each tunnel while making the full utilization of the available network bandwidth without adverse throughput performance impact at high traffic load.

Hardware-based compression is designed to deliver the ability to maximize throughput over lower bandwidth links in the wide area network, supporting improved cost efficiencies of FCIP. The SAN06B-R compresses FC frames before they are encapsulated into FCIP packets.

FCIP Quality of Service (QoS) provides high-priority, medium-priority, and low-priority handling of initiator-target flows within the same FCIP tunnel for transmission over the WAN.

FC Routing delivers fabric isolation in conjunction with FCIP, enabling separate fabrics to share devices without merging across the IP network.

FCIP Fast Write accelerates SCSI write processing, supporting increased performance of synchronous and asynchronous replication applications across high-latency WAN connections.

Fabric Vision (#7729): Fabric Vision technology includes several critical diagnostic, monitoring, and management capabilities that designed to help increase fabric resiliency, reduce downtime, optimize application performance, and dramatically simplifies SAN deployment and management. The following features are introduced with the base Fabric OS (FOS) 7.2.0 release:

  • Bottleneck Detection: Identifies and alerts administrators about device or ISL congestion, as well as abnormal levels of latency in the fabric.
  • Critical diagnostic and monitoring capabilities: Help ensure early problem detection and recovery.
  • Credit loss detection

Flow Vision, Monitoring and Alerting Policy Suite (MAPS), and customizable dashboard advanced technologies and capabilities are made available with the optional Fabric Vision licensed feature.

  • Flow Vision enables administrators to identify, monitor, and analyze specific application and data flows in order to maximize performance, avoid congestion, and optimize resources. Flow Vision includes limited flow monitoring and receiving of Flow Generator traffic.
  • Monitoring and Alerting Policy Suite (MAPS) is a new, easy to use, policy-based threshold monitoring and alerting suite that pro-actively monitors the health and performance of the SAN infrastructure to ensure application up-time and availability. By leveraging pre-built rule/policy-based templates, MAPS simplifies threshold configuration, monitoring and alerting. Organizations can configure the entire fabric (or multiple fabrics) at one time using common rules and policies, or customize policies for specific ports or switch elements ll through a single dialog. The integrated dashboard displays an overall switch health report, along with details on out-of-policy conditions, to help administrators quickly pinpoint potential issues and easily identify trends and other behaviors occurring on a switch or fabric. MAPS capabilities provide policy-based monitoring, CLI dashboard of health and error statistics, bottleneck detection information, pro-active flow monitoring. Automated Migration of Fabric Watch configurations to 'MAPS' automatically imports existing thresholds into a MAPS policy, enabling seamless migration from Fabric Watch to MAPS to take advantage of the new MAPS capabilities and usability enhancements.

Switches installed with both Advanced Performance Monitoring and Fabric Watch licenses will automatically receive the Fabric Vision capabilities with FOS 7.2.0, and later, without having the Fabric Vision license installed. Customers who already have either Fabric Watch or Advanced Performance Monitoring installed (but not both) and want Fabric Vision technology capabilities (including MAPS and Flow Vision) can upgrade to Fabric Vision by purchasing and installing the other license.

Once the switch is upgraded to FOS 7.2.0 or higher and the Fabric Vision license is enabled, Fabric Watch configuration and any Fabric Watch related features are no longer supported.

Open Systems Tape Pipelining helps accelerate read and write tape processing over distance, reducing backup and restore windows.

Storage-Optimized TCP increases TCP window size and flow control, helping to accelerate TCP transport for storage applications.

Multiple logical FCIP tunnels (up to 8 in FOS V6.3; VE or VEx) allow for scalable connectivity between sites between two SAN06B-R models or when it is connected to a 8 Gbps Routing Blade.

The SAN06B-R Extension Switch is designed to include the following attributes:

  • Fibre Channel Ports: 16 ports, universal (E, F, Mirror port (M), Ex, and FL).
  • FCIP Ports: 6 ports, 1 GbE Virtual E-port (VE and VEX).
  • Scalability: Full fabric architecture with 239 switches maximum.

  • ISL Trunking: Up to eight 8 Gbps ports per ISL trunk; up to 64 Gbps per ISL trunk.
  • FCIP Trunking: Up to four GbE ports per FCIP Trunk; up to 4 Gbps.
  • Fibre Channel Aggregate bandwidth: 128 Gbps, 16 ports at 8 Gbps data rate.
  • FCIP Aggregate bandwidth: 6 Gbps, 6 ports at 1 Gbps data rate.
  • Fabric latency: 700 nanosec with no contention, cut- through routing at 8 Gbps.
  • Maximum frame size: 2112-byte payload.
  • Maximum MTU size: 1500 byte Ethernet packets with FCIP.
  • Classes of service: Class 2, Class 3, Class F (inter-switch frames).
  • Port types: FL_Port, F_Port, E_Port, Ex_Port, M_Port, and self-discovery based on switch type (U_Port). For FCIP, VE port (virtual E port) and VEx port (virtual Ex port).
  • Data traffic types: Fabric switches supporting unicast, multicast (255 groups) and broadcast.
  • USB: One USB port for system log file downloads or firmware upgrades.
  • Media types: Fibre Channel - Hot-pluggable, industry- standard Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP), LC connector; Short-Wave Laser (SWL), Long-Wave Laser (LWL); Extended Long-Wave Laser (ELWL); distance depends on fiber optic cable and port speed.

  • Fabric services: Simple Name Server (SNS); Registered State Change Notification (RSCN), NTP, RADIUS, Reliable Commit Service (RCS), Dynamic Path Selection (DPS), Brocade Advanced Zoning, Web Tools, and Extended Fabric. Optional fabric services include: Fabric Watch, ISL Trunking, Advanced Performance Monitoring (APM), Integrated Routing, Adaptive Networking with QoS, FICON CUP, and Enhanced Group Management (EGM).
  • Extensive diagnostics, system-monitoring capabilities, performance monitoring (including extensive and granular TCP statistics graphing in Webtool), and dual redundant and hot-swappable power supplies and cooling units designed to provide high Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS).

The SAN06B-R utilizes the same Fabric Operating System that supports the entire b-type SAN product family-from the 8-port SAN Switch to the 768-port Fabric Backbone. This helps ensure seamless interoperability with optional advanced features such as ISL Trunking, Advanced Performance Monitoring, Fabric Watch, and Advanced Zoning.

In addition, organizations can perform management and administrative tasks through familiar management tools, including the IBM System Storage Data Center Fabric Manager (DCFM), Web Tools, and the command line interface. Moreover, optional FICON Control Unit Port (CUP) capabilities enable legacy management applications to support FICON environments.

Optional Features

Fabric Vision license (#7729) support for the new MAPS and limited Flow Vision features including limited flow monitoring and receiving of Flow Generator traffic.

R06 Enterprise Bundle2 (#7730): The R06 Enterprise Bundle2 offers a convenient method to order a set of optional features bundled into one orderable feature number. Feature #7730 consists of one of each Fabric Vision (#7729), Advanced Performance Monitor (# 7734), Trunking Activation (#7735), Adaptive Networking (#7736), and Fabric Watch (#7740).

R06 Enterprise Package (#7731): The R06 Enterprise Package offers a convenient method to order a set of optional features bundled into one orderable feature number. Feature #7731 consists of one of each Advanced Performance Monitor (# 7734), Trunking Activation (#7735), Adaptive Networking (#7736), and Fabric Watch (#7740).

R06 Port Activation (#7732): This activation feature enables full hardware capabilities on the SAN06B-R base model, increasing the number of Fibre Channel ports from 4 to 16 and the number of GbE ports from 2 to 6. A SAN06B-R with the Upgrade License also supports up to eight FCIP tunnels instead of two and supports advanced capabilities like Open Systems tape read/write pipelining.

R06 8 Gbps Advanced Extension (#7733): This license enables two advanced extension features, FCIP Trunking and Adaptive Rate Limiting (ARL). The FCIP Trunking feature allows multiple (up to 4 in FOS V6.3) IP source and destination address pairs (defined as FCIP Circuits) via multiple (up to 4 in FOS V6.3) 1 GE interfaces to provide a high bandwidth FCIP tunnel and failover resiliency. The ARL feature provides a minimum bandwidth guarantee for each tunnel with full utilization of the available network bandwidth without impacting throughput performance under high traffic load. ARL is performed on the FCIP tunnel connection to dynamically change the rate at which the FCIP tunnel transmits data through the TCP connections. ARL will use the information from the TCP connections to determine and adjust the rate limit for the FCIP tunnel dynamically. This allows FCIP connections to utilize the maximum available bandwidth.

R06 Advanced performance monitor (#7734): Enables performance monitoring of networked storage resources.

R06 Trunking activation (#7735): Provides the ability to aggregate multiple physical links into one logical link. With ISL Trunking Activation, FC packets can be efficiently distributed across multiple links between two SAN b-type fabric devices, while preserving in-order delivery. You can use ISL Trunking between any of the supported 2 Gbps, 4 Gbps, or 8 Gbps b-type models. Both SAN b-type fabric switches must have ISL Trunking activated.

R06 Adaptive networking (#7736): Adaptive Networking provides a set of capabilities allowing high-priority connections to obtain the bandwidth necessary for optimum performance, even in congested environments. The quality of service (QoS) SID/DID Prioritization and Ingress Rate Limiting features are the components of this license option and are available on all 8 Gbps platforms. The capabilities associated with the Adaptive Networking license is included by default in FOS 7.2.0 on all SAN06B-R systems. Hence this license is not required when using FOS 7.2.0, and later.

R06 FICON w/CUP activation (#7737): FICON with CUP Activation is designed to provide in-band management of the supported SAN b-type switch, router, and director products by System Automation for z/OS from IBM System z10 EC, z10 BC, z9 EC, z9 BC, and zSeries 990, 900, 890, and 800 servers. To enable in-band management on multiple switches and directors, each switch, router, or director must be configured with the appropriate FICON CUP feature. This support is designed to provide a single point of control for managing connectivity in active FICON I/O configurations. System Automation for OS/390 or z/OS can now concurrently manage IBM 9032 ESCON Directors, as well as supported SAN b-type switch and director products with FICON.

R06 FICON Accelerator activation (#7738): The R06 FICON Accelerator Activation is an optional software license that is designed to use advanced networking technologies, data management techniques, and protocol intelligence to accelerate FICON disk and tape read and write operations over distance, while maintaining the integrity of command and acknowledgment sequences. It supports Emulation for IBM z/OS Global Mirror (formerly eXtended Remote Copy or XRC), as well as Tape Pipelining for FICON tape and virtual tape. In combination with the R06 8 Gbps Advanced Extension Activation (#7733) license for FCIP tunneling, FICON Accelerator can provide improved application performance across long- distance IP WANs.

R06 FICON Accelerator, in conjunction with the IBM SAN06B-R Extension Switch, is designed to enable high-performance and robust mainframe extension solutions over virtually any distance. The combined solution supports strategic business initiatives, such as business continuance, disaster recovery, consolidation, data migration, and global data access.

While FICON CUP activation is not required, it is recommended for ease of use, improved fault isolation and problem determination.

R06 Integrated routing (#7739): Integrated routing allows any port in a SAN768B, SAN384B, SAN80B-4, SAN40B-4, and SANR06B to be configured as an (EX_port) supporting Fibre Channel Routing (FCR). Also allows for VEX_ports for FCR over FCIP tunnels. Integrated routing enables FCR support on the 8 Gbps ports as a native capability; hence they are referred to as native EX_ports. This eliminates the need to add a routing blade or use the SAN06B-R for FCR purposes, and also provides double the bandwidth for each FC Router connection when attached to another 8 Gbps-capable port.

R06 Fabric watch (#7740): Enables real-time proactive awareness of the health, performance, and security of each switch. Fabric Watch also includes Port Fencing capabilities. It automatically alerts network managers to problems and helps avoid costly failures by providing:

  • Real-time tracking of numerous fabric and switch elements
  • Automatic event notifications when switch and fabric elements exceed thresholds
  • Security, availability, and congestion monitoring thresholds and alerts

R06 Server Application Optimization (SAO) (#7741): This SAO feature is designed to enhance overall application performance and virtual machine scalability by extending b-type data center fabric technologies to the server infrastructure. SAO enables individual traffic flows to be specifically configured, prioritized, and optimized from end-to-end throughout the data center.

The solution offered with the IBM b-type 8 Gbps capable switches and directors supports three QoS levels (low, medium, and high) to deliver end-to-end service levels. The bandwidth allocation from application and HBA port through the b-type fabric uses virtual channel (VC) technology, creating logical links from the physical or virtual HBA port (NPIV) to the corresponding switch port.

SAO is enabled via software licensing on the b-type 8 Gbps switches and directors, and is deployed along with Brocade adapters to help IT organizations more easily manage true end-to-end SAN services across next-generation data centers. SAO and adaptive networking features must be both activated on the SAN switches.

The capabilities associated with the SAO license is included by default in FOS 7.2.0 on all SAN06B-R systems. Hence this license is not required when using FOS 7.2.0, and later.

R06 Extended fabric (#7742)

Extended Fabric Activation extends SAN fabrics beyond the FC standard 10 km by increasing the internal switch buffers to help maintain performance on ISLs at distances - depending on platform - of up to 3,000 km.

2498-R06 Firmware upgrade renewal, one year (#7716): The initial purchase of an IBM System Storage SAN06B-R includes one year of firmware upgrade entitlement. This feature provides you with one additional year of renewal for upgrades included in future releases of the Fabric Operating System firmware. You are not eligible to access new features and functions without the purchase of this feature.

2498-R06 Firmware upgrade renewal, two years (#7717): The initial purchase of an IBM System Storage SAN06B-R includes one year of firmware upgrade entitlement. This feature provides you with two additional years of renewal for upgrades included in future releases of the Fabric Operating System firmware. You are not eligible to access new features and functions without the purchase of this feature.

The IBM System Storage SAN06B-R combines three major subsystem's design into a fixed configuration 1 U package - a single-chip ASIC FC switch, a FCIP subsystem for the data path, and a CPU complex that processes control path data. Sixteen ports of auto-sensing 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, 4 Gbps, and 8 Gbps Fibre Channel interfaces for seamless integration with existing fabrics. Fibre Channel auto-sensing ports self-negotiate to the highest speed supported by attached devices. Six ports of 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) to extend connectivity between multiple SAN fabrics over distance. Two of the 6 GE ports can be configured for copper (via built-in RJ45) or optical (via SFP module) cable connectivity. The other 4 GE ports offer cable connectivity (copper or optical) via SFP module only. For both FC and GE interfaces, SFP/SFP+ media interfaces to external devices and supports any combination of Short Wavelength (SWL), Long Wavelength (LWL), and Extended Long Wavelength (ELWL) optical media when available.

The system chassis is a 1 U height enclosure with two power supply/fan units and the system board. The system board is mounted in the switch enclosure. Two 150 Watt removable, redundant power supply/fan units provide hot-swappable capability. Each power supply FRU has two built-in fans (for a total of 4 fans with a dual power configuration) to provide necessary airflow to cool both the power supply and the system board.

On the front of the unit, there are three management connections (one RS-232 RJ45, one Ethernet RJ45, and one USB port). The Ethernet RJ45 port connection provides a 10/100BaseT port for a full system management console interface. The RS-232 RJ45 port connection provides a serial port interface for setting the switch's IP address and to restore the switch to factory defaults. The USB port provides increased serviceability and error logging functionality, and facilitates easy firmware upgrades and downloads of system log files (such as 'SupportSave' output) for further problem/source determination and resolution.

The CPU subsystem of the SAN06B-R runs the Brocade Fabric OS (FOS) and is responsible for switch initialization, configuration, and management.

The SAN06B-R base model is enabled with the following features and functions:

  • Four 8 Gbps FC ports
  • Two 1 GE ports
  • Two integrated power supply and fan units
  • Fibre Channel capability with Advanced Web Tools
  • Advanced Zoning
  • Full Fabric
  • Enhanced Group Management (EGM)

Each switch comes with the minimum ports activated in the base; however, IBM does not include SFPs within the base product although all activated ports must be populated with SFPs. Any combination of supported short wave and/or long wave SFPs may be ordered at the time of initial purchase, or when additional port activation are purchased so that all activated ports are populated with SFPs.

The Ship Group contains Install Guide Hardcopy, EZSwitchSetup, CD ROM (with manuals), Service Tools, and Wrap Tools, Serial Cable, RJ-45, Wrist Strap, and Rack kit.

The cabinet-mountable 1U chassis is designed to be mounted in a 19-in cabinet space, with forced-air cooling that flows from the non-port side of the switch to the port side.

The ARL feature provides a minimum bandwidth guarantee for each tunnel with full utilization of the available network bandwidth without impacting throughput performance under high traffic load. ARL is performed on the FCIP tunnel connection to dynamically change the rate at which the FCIP tunnel transmits data through the TCP connection(s). ARL will use the information from the TCP connection(s) to determine and adjust the rate limit for the FCIP tunnel dynamically. This allows FCIP connections to utilize the maximum available bandwidth.
