Description

IBM's Expandable Storage Plus (Exp Plus) disk enclosure line now provides greater capacity, more connectivity options (including Ultra3 LVD), and higher performance -- all at an affordable price. If you rely on IBM eServer pSeries and RS/6000 servers and require external SCSI disk capacity, this may be the disk enclosure you've been waiting for.

High Capacity and Performance

  • Accommodates up to 14 hot-swappable, IBM Ultra3 (LVD) drives
  • Provides up to 1,027 GB capacity with a combination of 9.1, 18.2, 36.4 and 73.4GB 10k disk drives
  • Performs at speeds of up to 160 MB/sec when attached to an Ultra3 host adapter or system port, or up to 80 MB/sec when attached to an Ultra2 host adapter or system port. Ultra and Fast/Wide speeds are also supported
  • Reports problems to your server(s) at customer-selectable intervals using SCSI Enclosure Services
  • For Telco customers, a -48 V DC power supply option is available

Multiple Configurations for Varied Requirements

  • Single Host: Up to 14 disk drives to meet large capacity requirements
  • Two Host, Single Bus: Up to 12 drives for non-concurrent usage -- providing HACMP server failover support (with PCI Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI Adapter # 6205)
  • Two Host, Dual Bus: Each bus supports up to seven drives
  • Combine with the IBM PCI, 4-channel, Ultra SCSI RAID adapter for high performance and data protection

The DU3 model is designed to be rack mounted and is ideal for use with multiple servers, while the TU3 is a stand-alone tower perfect for single server storage. Both come with your choice of a redundant power source or a cooling fan.

IBM's Expandable Storage Plus (Exp Plus) is designed to meet the needs of many different types of customers, including those customers who want:

  • Stand-alone storage for a single server
  • Rack-mounted storage for several servers
  • To use SCSI technology as the connectivity option

Exp Plus provides the following at an attractive price:

  • Excellent performance
  • High availability (when combined with a RAID-based host bus adapter)
  • Enclosure services to ensure that problems are reported to the server (at customer-selectable intervals)

The DU3 model supports up to 14 of IBM's latest 10K 9.1, 18.2, 36.4 and 73.4 GB Ultra3 SCSI disk drives. These drives can be mixed together in the same enclosure. When connected to a RAID host bus adapter, such as the Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter, data protection and high performance are possible.

Performance of the DU3 model can reach up to 160 MB/sec (Ultra3) synchronized data transfer speeds when attached to an Ultra3 host adapter or system port. These models will operate at up to 80 MB/sec when attached to Ultra2 hosts. Ultra and Fast Wide speeds are also supported.

A number of SCSI bus configurations are supported by Exp Plus DU3 model. When attached to a single host system, up to 14 disk drives can be configured in an Exp Plus to meet large capacity requirements.

In a dual host environment (using feature number 2635), the SCSI bus can also be configured as two separate buses, each supporting up to 7 disk drives attached to two independent host connections.

Exp Plus uses either a single AC power supply and a fan unit, or dual AC power supplies for redundancy. For Telco customers, -48V DC power supplies can be selected in place of AC supplies. The -48 V DC power supply is available on the drawer model (2104-DU3) only. The Exp Plus can be mounted into one of several racks, including the 7104-S00, 7014-T00, 7014-T42, 7015-R00, and the 2101-100. The DU3 model implements SCSI Enclosure Services (SES). Using 73.4 GB disk drives, Exp Plus can support up to 1,027 GB of unprotected disk storage. If you use RAID technology with the Exp Plus models, you can benefit from increased data protection. However, RAID technology requires increased space (depending on the RAID level you select).

Product positioning

IBM's Exp Plus offers high-performance storage for customers who desire industry-standard SCSI connections. Exp Plus uses the latest Ultra3 (LVD) technology, providing low-priced, scalable solutions for new and existing users. Customers have a choice of a variety of disk solutions, including SSA, Fibre Channel, and now Ultra3 (LVD). The choice should be based on attachment available within the server, the performance, distance, and capacity required. Exp Plus should be selected when the customer is considering storage that:

  • Is to be placed close to the server (within 20 meters)
  • Requires no more than 14 disk drives per adapter
  • Provides high performance
