What is the Storwize V7000 - Start Small and Grow Easily

Start smallOne 12 or 24-bay control enclosure

12- and 24-bay expansion enclosures can be intermixed in a system

Drive sizes can be intermixed in an enclosure

20 U = 1 M



Scale UpEasily add up to 9 expansion enclosures, expand capacity up to 240TB and 39 expansion enclosures (4 x V7000)

Drive choices

2.5-inch (SFF)– 146GB 15K RPM SAS– 300GB 15K & 10K RPM SAS– 450GB 10K RPM SAS– 600GB 10K RPM SAS– 900GB 10K RPM SAS– 1TB 7.2k RPM NL-SAS

3.5-inch (LFF)– 2TB 7,2k RPM NL-SAS– 3TB 7,2k RPM NL-SAS

Solid-State Drive (SFF)– 200GB, 300GB, 400GB

RAID level

RAID 0, 1, 5, 6 and 10

Features: Internal & External Storage Block-level virtualization

Managed Disk (Mdisk) – Lun / Logical Device imported from external virtualized arrays (example 100GB ldev of HDS USP-V array)

The Storwize V7000 uses basic storage units called managed disks and collects them into one or more Storage Pools

These Storage Pools then provide the capacity (extents, base size 256MB) to create volumes for use by hosts.

Virtualization Features: How it “internally” works

Managed Disk (Mdisk) – Lun / Logical Device imported from external virtualized arrays (example 100GB ldev of HDS USP-V array)

Managed Disk (Mdisk) – Raid Array build on Internal StorWize V7000 disk drives (example RAID-5 built on 5 SAS internal disk drives or RAID-5 on SSD disk drives)

Features: Thin Provisioning

Without thin provisioning, pre-allocated space is

reserved whether the application uses it or not. With thin provisioning, applications can grow

dynamically, but only consume space they are

actually using (on demand)

Traditional volumes, reserve physical capacity of the entire capacity even if it is not used. Thin provisioning volumes allocates and uses physical disk capacity when data is written



Features: Flashcopy






FlashCopyPossible Integration with Tivoli Flashcopy Manager (for Application consistency flashcopies)

Real-Time Performance Monitoring

� Storwize V7000 will collect and display real-time performance information� CPU utilization; port utilization and I/O rates; volume and Mdisk I/O rate, bandwidth, latency

� Updated every 5-10 secs

� Provides “immediate” real-time performance information� TPC provides longer-term data collection, storage, and analysis

IBM Virtual Fabric - vNIC Topology at Pure Chassis levelThe vNIC (or Virtual Fabric approach) is the possibility to create 4 virtual independent pipes (via QinQ) on the 10Gig link between the Compute Node and the ScS. The operating system in the compute node will find 4 independent NICs (named vNICs).

At ScS level, to keep the independence of vNICs, vNICGroups are implemented and dedicated uplinks per vNICGroups are used to connect to different L2 domain in the Cisco

& BPDU Guard
