  4. 4. IBM Systems and Technology Product DatasheetSystem Storage ● High bandwidth between and within modules: Communication between modules takes place over an inter- nal, redundant network equipped with massive bandwidth (InfiniBand for XIV Gen3 models; 1 Gbps Ethernet for XIV models) which supports rapid rebuilding when necessary. Each module has its own extremely large CPU-to-memory and disk-to-memory bandwidth. ● Huge processing resources: Each module is equipped with its own multicore processor, putting dozens of CPU cores at the disposal of the rack. The XIV Storage System uses this vast processing power to execute advanced caching algorithms that support small cache slots, ensuring high performance through higher cache hit rates and use of advanced features such as snapshots and mirroring. ● High performance even during disk rebuild and hardware failure: IBM XIV storage maintains consistent high performance at all times because it engages all the disks in the rebuild process simultaneously.All-in-one view of XIV system metrics for in-depth performance analysis Data Module FC 15 data modules, each containing: Host Data Module • 12 high-density SAS disk drives • 24 GB memory Host • Quad-core Intel CPU • 2 X 20 Gbps InfiniBand HCA ports Inter-module • 400 GB SSD (optional) iSCSI Data Module connectivity Host connectivity: • 24 X 8 Gbps FC ports Host • 22 x 1 Gbps iSCSI por ts 2 InfiniBand switches: • Redundant inter-module connectivity Data Module • 600 Gbps total internal bandwidth 3 UPS modules: • Stable power to all system components • Safe shutdown upon power outage Cache CPU UPS UPS UPS Interface Disks SSD (optional)IBM XIV Storage System Gen3—components and connectivity 4
