IBM System Storage DS8000: Architecture and Implementation

Bertrand has written many IBM Redbooks publications, and has also developed and taught technical workshops. He holds a Masters degree in Electrical Engineering. His main focus is on solving critical customer situations in open systems environments. He is also a VMware Certified Professional. Now, as a developer, he works on RAS features for the DS family and data analysis tools for global Product Engineering teams for all Storage products. He also holds multiple vendor certifications from HP, Cisco, and Sun.

Steven currently leads the development team for the ARK project, producing tools for remote support and real-time diagnostics for IBM Disk and Tape products. His areas of experience also include critical situation management for storage environments. His main role in IBM Uruguay is to provide technical support services for virtualization and storage products.

Functions and features covered apply to the DS and DS models. More detailed information about functions and architectute is provided in subsequent chapters. The System Storage DS family is designed as a high performance, high capacity, and resilient series of disk storage systems. It offers high availability, multiplatform support, and simplified management tools to help provide a cost-effective path to an on-demand world. Both are designed to support the most demanding business applications with their exceptional all-around performance and data throughput.

Combined with the world-class business resiliency and encryption features, both machines provide a unique combination of high availability, performance, and implementqtion. Both are tremendously scalable, have broad server support, and virtualization capabilities. These features can architrcture simplify the storage environment by consolidating multiple storage systems onto a single machine.

High density storage enclosures offer a considerable reduction in footprint and energy consumption, making them the most space and energy-efficient models in the DS series. Architecture and Implementation 1. The storage virtualization offered by the DS series allows organizations to allocate system resources more effectively and better control application quality of service. The DS series improves the cost structure of operations and lowers energy consumption through a tiered storage environment.

Storage Pool Striping rotate extents: This feature is the default when creating new volumes and not explicitly specifying an extent allocation method EAM. One thing to keep in mind is that Storage Pool Striping is static, whereas Easy Tier is dynamic, which can allow dynamic interaction for better performance when it comes to pool allocation. This feature enables automatic dynamic data relocation capabilities.
