IBM V3700 System Storage
Organisations of all sizes are faced with a tidal wave of data coming from myriad new sources, including sensors, social media, mobile platforms and more. While the sheer volume of this new data may seem overwhelming, the value of information is stronger than ever - some even consider it the new currency of business. To help maximise the benefits of growing amounts of data, businesses are turning to software-defined environments, which can provide flexibility and responsiveness to business demands - along with higher scalability and greater efficiency.
The IBM® Storwize family is the primary IBM storage solution for supporting software-defined environments and virtual infrastructures, delivering flexibility and innovative storage functions. Storwize V3700, the entry-level system in the Storwize family , is an efficient, easy-to- use, high performance solution that enables small and midsize organisations to meet their changing storage needs.
To help address block storage requirements, Storwize V3700 is designed to provide small and midsize organisations with the ability to consolidate and share data at an affordable price, while leveraging advanced software capabilities usually found in more expensive systems. Providing up to 120 drives of capacity, Storwize V3700 delivers proven ease of management, functionality and interoperability.
IBM V3700 System Storage is easily to manage and deploy storage using a breakthrough graphical user interface (GUI)
Gain efficiency with internal storage virtualisation and high performance thin provisioning of IBM V3700 storage
IBM V3700 System Storage has continuous access to data with integrated non-disr uptive migration
IBM V3700 System Storage improves network utilisation for remote mirroring with innovative replication technology
IBM V3700 System Storage optimises costs for mixed workloads, with up to three times performance improvement with only five percent flash storage capacity using IBM Easy Tier1
Comply with Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) Level 3 and European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) specifications.Simplify management
Storwize V3700 comes with an easy-to- use management interface based on the breakthrough Storwize family GUI. With dynamic and customisable views, the interface is designed to give administrators intuitive control of the system, while interactive menus, tabs and charts can also help improve productivity.Optimise efficiency
Using thin provisioning with IBM V3700 storage, the applications will only consume the space they are actually using, versus the total space that they have been allocated. Designed to keep business overhead low, thin provisioning optimises efficiency by allocating disk storage space in a flexible manner among multiple users, based on the minimum space required by each user at any given time. This can help organisations save power, lower heat generation and reduce hardware space requirements.Improve performance
Easy Tier technology, an optional function for Storwize V3700, automatically and dynamically moves only the appropriate data to flash storage, so users can achieve high performance without needing to manually create and manage storage-tier policies.
Easy Tier automatically of IBM V3700 storage identifies highly-active data and moves only that data to flash storage. The remaining data can be placed on higher capacity drives for the best value. Using Easy Tier, you can improve performance up to three times with only five percent flash storage capacity.Protect data
Storwize V3700 includes IBM FlashCopy technology, which is designed to create an almost-instant copy of active data that can be used for backup purposes or for parallel processing activities.
In addition, the optional remote mirroring function of IBM V3700 storage enables organisations to create copies of data at remote locations for disaster recovery (DR). Metro Mirror supports synchronous replication at distances up to 300 km, whereas Global Mirror supports asynchronous replication up to 8,000 km. Replication can occur between any Storwize family systems and can include any supported virtualised storage. Remote mirroring works with Fibre Channel (FC), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and IP (Ethernet) networking between sites. With IP networking, Storwize V3700 supports both 1 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 10 GbE connections and uses innovative Bridgeworks SANSlide technology to optimise use of network bandwidth. As a result, the networking infrastructure may require lower speeds (and thus, lower costs), or users may be able to improve the accuracy of remote data through shorter replication cycles.
