Description

Top rule

The next generation of DS8000 offerings is now available, the DS8900F all-flash family. DS8900F is designed to maximize the power of IBM Z and LinuxONE, and is the trusted storage foundation for mission-critical, multicloud environments. It integrates seamlessly into hybrid multicloud foundations to unlock an unmatched value for mission-critical workloads, takes advantage of the highest level of business uptime, and meets the needs of critical business services. With DS8900F systems, data is always protected wherever it resides across a multicloud environment.

The DS8900F family delivers the following features and benefits:

  • Next-level cybersecurity with Safeguarded Copy: Safeguarded Copy provides protection against data corruption or loss caused by malicious events such as malware and ransomware, delivering data stability and system resiliency for mission-critical workloads.
  • The fastest application response time for IBM Z: Latency is the most important performance metric in storage. With 19 microseconds for mainframe and 90 microseconds for distributed systems, the DS8900F family provides ultra-low latency to help clients process huge volumes of transactions faster and deliver real-time insights to differentiate their products and gain a competitive advantage.
  • Built from the DS8880 code base: The DS8900F family was developed under the same microcode core as DS8880F, inheriting all the advanced functions available in its predecessor.
  • Performance improvements: As compared to the previous DS8880F generation, DS8910F delivers a 60% increase in random IOPS and up to 150% increase in sequential throughput. DS8950F delivers 38% more random IOPS.
  • Recovery options: A variety of disaster recovery configurations with three- and four-site replication.
  • 32 GFC host adapters with line-rate encryption capability that provide up to two times the bandwidth performance, higher IOPS, and lower latency compared to 16 GFC host adapters.
  • Support for IBM Fibre Channel Endpoint Security: DS8900F host adapters include support for IBM Fibre Channel Endpoint Security as part of the cybersecurity solutions offered by IBM. In order to take advantage of this capability, the platforms attached to the DS8900F must also have support for IBM Fibre Channel Endpoint Security.
  • Simplified rack power distribution: Intelligent power distribution units (iPDUs) supporting single- or three-phase power in all models.
  • NVDIMM for write cache retention: Eliminates system battery requirements.

Transparent cloud tiering on the DS8000 in conjunction with DFSMShsm continues to provide business efficiencies, flexibility, and a reduction in capital expenses by reducing CPU utilization by more than 50% when archiving large data sets. This efficiency is realized by a direct data transfer from DS8000 to an object storage platform. A new capability is now available to enable the IBM TS7700 Virtualization Engine to be the object storage target for transparent cloud tiering.

TS7700 object storage can coexist object data from DS8000 transparent cloud tiering with traditional FICON® logical tape volumes within the same physical TS7700. No additional hardware is required as data movement is done through existing grid interfaces between the DS8000 and TS7700, and data is logically partitioned out of the existing resident cache.

The DS8880 and DS8880F families now support FlashCopy® onto a Global Mirror primary. This will enable the use of Global Mirror primaries as FlashCopy targets, as well as to use Remote Pair FlashCopy in a Metro/Global Mirror or Metro Mirror/Global Mirror multitarget configuration. This function will increase flexibility in Global Mirror environments and allow use of FlashCopy in Metro/Global Mirror and Metro Mirror/Global Mirror environments while maintaining HyperSwap® readiness.

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

IBM DS8900F storage family is capable as of November 15, 2019, when used in accordance with associated IBM documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it. A US Section 508 Accessibility Conformance Statement can be requested on the Product accessibility information website.

Planning information

Client 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 DS8900F Introduction and Planning Guide (SC27-9560) for the following models:

  • DS8910F flexibility class: Rack-mounted models 993 and 994
  • DS8950F agility class: Models 996 and E96

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 DS8900F Introduction and Planning Guide (SC27-9560) for Models 993, 994, 996, and E96.

Logical configuration planning and application

Logical configuration planning is a customer responsibility. Logical configuration refers to the creation of RAID arrays, 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 DS8000 Storage Manager (GUI) and DS command-line interface.

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

For capacity calculation guidelines, see the IBM DS8900F Introduction and Planning Guide (SC27-9560) for models 993, 994, 996, and E96.

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.

  • IBM Storage Appliance planning
  • IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (SKLM) planning
  • Encryption activation review planning

IBM Storage Appliance planning

IBM 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, DS8900F requires at least two storage appliances and associated software for each site that 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. This enables 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 SKLM, formerly known as IBM Tivoli® Key Lifecycle Manager, V2.5, or later, is required.

IBM SKLM planning

The DS8000 series now supports SKLM V3.0.

Program number VRM Program name
5724-T60 3.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (For PPA)
5641-SKL 3.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager - 1 year (For AAS)
5641-SKM 3.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager - 3 year (For AAS)

To support enterprise-wide encryption-key management, an updated set of pricing metrics is 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, see 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: See the IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager Knowledge Center 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 English publications may be viewed online on the electronic availability date in IBM Knowledge Center.

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