1 IBM® Spectrum Storage Virtualize™ V7000 + V7000 Unified in a nutshell Brigitte Stolz, IBM Systems BDM Storage VirtualizationIBM® Spectrum Storage Virtualize™ V V7000 Unified in a nutshellJuni 2015
2 Inheriting Key Features from IBM’s Enterprise-Class Systems Inherited NAS, ILM and Active File Management from Spectrum ScaleInnovative ease-of-use GUI influenced from the field-proven interface of IBM XIVInherited architecture and software features from SAN Volume Controller (SVC)Storwize V7000(block only)V7000 UnifiedInherited RAID functionality already developed for the DS8000 series for 3.5” and 2.5” disk drivesRAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10RAS services and diagnosticsStorwize V7000 Unified(block and file access)Midrange Systems
3 IBM Active Cloud Engine™ File SupportIBM Active Cloud Engine™V7000 UnifiedBlock-and-FileAdd 2 file modules to add support for NFS, CIFS, FTP, HTTPS and SCPStorwize V7000 UnifiedEach can have up to 20 Expansion EnclosuresBlock-onlyFCP, FCoE and iSCSI, up to 1,056 drivesCluster up to 4 Control Enclosures together into a single systemAdd up to 20 Expansion EnclosuresStart with 1 Control Enclosure
4 IBM Storwize V7000 and V7000 Unified – Key Features Easy TierAutomatically moves extents between Flash, Enterprise and Nearline diskReal-time CompressionInline compression for active primary workloadsUp to 80% Savings - More effective than Data DeduplicationIdeal for Databases, VMs, CAD/CAM, etc.Data-at-Rest EncryptionAES 256 bit encryption implemented in SAS chip of V700 Gen2 HardwareStorwize v7.4 software for block, and v for file modulesSupports internal SSD and HDDWorks with all other features including Real-time Compression and Easy TierData is compressed first, then encryptedEncryption keys stored on USB memory sticksNo performance impact to applications!
