  19. 19. IBM Storage SVC DH8 Adapter Options 19  Notes: – At least one adapter card is required – Up to three 8Gbps Fibre Channel adapters (12 ports) – Up to four 16Gbps Fibre Channel adapters (8 ports) – Up to one 10Gbps Ethernet/FCoE adapter (4 ports) – Using any of slots 4-6 requires second CPU and 32GB cache upgrade Slot Possible Cards Slot Possible Cards 1 FC (8Gbps or 16Gbps) 4 Compression accelerator 2 FC (8Gbps or 16Gbps) or 10Gbps Ethernet/FCoE 5 FC (8Gbps or 16Gbps) or 10Gbps Ethernet/FCoE 3 12Gbps SAS Expansion or 16Gbps FC 6 Compression accelerator
  20. 20. IBM Storage 10Gb Ethernet Card (FCoE and iSCSI)  The new 4x port 10GbE card will only be supported in the new SVC DH8 and in the Storwize V7000 2076 -524  The card is delivered with the SFPs fitted, unless it is a FRU.  In SVC 7.3.0 we will only support 1 x 10GbE adapter in each of the platforms (see above)  Only IBM supported 10Gb SFPs should be used  Each adapter port has amber and green coloured LED to indicate port status (fault LED is not used in 7.3.0.)  iSCSI access to volumes is possible via the customers 10 Gbps Ethernet network.  FCoE frame routing should be done by FCoE Switch  SVC doesn't support multihop FCoE Green LED Meaning On Link established Off No link 20
  21. 21.

  22. 22. IBM Storage Compression accelerator adapter  Up to a total of 2 compression accelerator adapters can be installed, each additional adapter installed will improve I/O performance when using compressed volumes – Intel QuickAssist technology is used. IBM is the first in the industry to integrate this technology into our products – 2nd CPU and extra 32 GB of memory are compulsory with the compression accelerator adapter  The use of compression accelerator adapters is compulsory (at least one) if users wish to use compression on SVC DH8. – For an I/O group containing a SVC DH8 with no compression accelerator, an attempt to create first compressed volume will fail. – The addnode command will also fail, if trying to add a SVC DH8 without a compression accelerator, to an I/O group which has compressed volumes 22
  23. 23. IBM Storage SVC DH8: Compression Support • Base hardware: • No RTC support • Add hardware option 1: 2nd CPU, 1x Compression Accelerator adapter + 32GB memory: • 8 cores dedicated to RTC • 1 Compression Accelerator adapter • 38GB memory for compression stack (32 additional + 6 from the SVC stack) • Additional hardware option 2: 2nd Compression Accelerator • 8 cores dedicated to RTC (same as for option 1) • 2 Compression Accelerator adapters (doubles bandwidth) • 38GB memory for compression stack (32 additional + 6 from the SVC stack) • Note: The 2nd CPU is required to open the PCIe lanes as well as schedule traffic into and out of the compression accelerator cards 23

  48. 48. IBM Storage Easy Tier v3: Automated Storage Pool Balancing  Any storage medium has a performance threshold: – Performance threshold means once IOPS on a MDisk exceed this threshold, IO response time will increase significantly  Knowing the performance threshold we could: – Avoid overloading MDisks by migrating extents – Protect upper tier's performance by demoting extents when upper tier's MDisks are overloaded – Balance workload within tiers based on utilization – Use xml file to record the MDisk’s threshold and make intelligent migration decisions automatically 48
  49. 49. IBM Storage Manage data growth to control costs  Traditional (“fully allocated”) virtual disks use physical disk capacity for the entire capacity of a virtual disk even if it is not used – Just like traditional disk systems  With thin provisioning, physical disk capacity is allocated and used when data is written – Can significantly reduce amount of physical disk capacity needed  Can significantly improve existing disk systems 49  Real-time compression can help freeze storage growth or delay need for additional purchases  Delivers 50% or better compression for data that is not already compressed  Compression helps reduce – Storage purchase costs – Rack space – Power and cooling – Software costs for additional functions  Works with all virtualized storage assets
  50. 50. IBM Storage Real-Time Compression is designed to: – Work on Active Primary Data – Dedicated platform for compression Platform handles ALL heavy lifting associated with compression – No performance impact We modify a compressed file in-place efficiently – No change in customer applications Users nor admins need to change anything – No change in processes All compression happens in Real-Time NOT post processing – Industry standard compression algorithm Based on algorithm that has been used for over a decade Storwize V7000/U IBM SVC What is the RTC Design Criteria?

  56. 56. IBM Storage Hybrid Use Cases: The Future of Storage Economics The storage administrator supporting traditional applications can configure SVC to use cloud storage as a target for snapshots. How? Once configured, the client can use cloud storage like any other FlashCopy target. For these use cases, cloud storage is either an OpenStack Swift object store (like Spectrum Scale with its Swift interface) deployed on or off premises, or an Amazon Web Services S3 object store. The storage administrator supporting new generation applications can configure on-prem Elastic Storage to utilize cloud storage as an additional storage tier How? Once configured, the client can use cloud storage like any other storage tier. Policies direct movement of cold data to the cloud storage tier or application owners can manually move data to that tier, for example to run a temporary analytics job using cloud resources. 56
