1 IBM® Spectrum Storage Virtualize™ V7000 + V7000 Unified in a nutshell
Brigitte Stolz, IBM Systems BDM Storage Virtualization IBM® Spectrum Storage Virtualize™ V V7000 Unified in a nutshell Juni 2015

2 Inheriting Key Features from IBM’s Enterprise-Class Systems
Inherited NAS, ILM and Active File Management from Spectrum Scale Innovative ease-of-use GUI influenced from the field-proven interface of IBM XIV Inherited architecture and software features from SAN Volume Controller (SVC) Storwize V7000 (block only) V7000 Unified Inherited RAID functionality already developed for the DS8000 series for 3.5” and 2.5” disk drives RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 RAS services and diagnostics Storwize V7000 Unified (block and file access) Midrange Systems

3 IBM Active Cloud Engine™
File Support IBM Active Cloud Engine™ V7000 Unified Block-and-File Add 2 file modules to add support for NFS, CIFS, FTP, HTTPS and SCP Storwize V7000 Unified Each can have up to 20 Expansion Enclosures Block-only FCP, FCoE and iSCSI, up to 1,056 drives Cluster up to 4 Control Enclosures together into a single system Add up to 20 Expansion Enclosures Start with 1 Control Enclosure

4 IBM Storwize V7000 and V7000 Unified – Key Features
Easy Tier Automatically moves extents between Flash, Enterprise and Nearline disk Real-time Compression Inline compression for active primary workloads Up to 80% Savings - More effective than Data Deduplication Ideal for Databases, VMs, CAD/CAM, etc. Data-at-Rest Encryption AES 256 bit encryption implemented in SAS chip of V700 Gen2 Hardware Storwize v7.4 software for block, and v for file modules Supports internal SSD and HDD Works with all other features including Real-time Compression and Easy Tier Data is compressed first, then encrypted Encryption keys stored on USB memory sticks No performance impact to applications!

5 V5000/V7000 strong advantage over competitors
External Virtualization Incredible Ease-of-Use Easy Tier RAID Innovative GUI SAN Virtualization Snapshots Clustered Systems IBM Real-time Compression* Storwize V5000 IBM DS8000 IBM XIV IBM SVC Advanced clustering technology External Virtualization Extend Thin Provisioning, data tiering and even RtC to existing IBM & non-IBM storage assets! Real-time Compression (RtC) (*V7000) Can be used on primary data (Oracle, Exchange, etc.) IP Replication acceleration (Bridgeworks Artificial Intelligence technology included) Self-adjusting data tiering Active Cloud EngineTM (V7000U) Local – Autonomic life cycle management of files Global – automatic exchange of files among V7000s & SONAS with a single global name space Storwize V7000
