IBM® TotalStorage® Product Guide
Strategic storage imperatives
Information technology is the lifeblood of any business, especially today when organizational performance depends on
information on demand. Business accountability hinges on it,
laws and regulations mandate it, customers demand it and
effective business processes rely on it. With information on
demand, businesses can respond quickly with the flexibility to
meet customer requirements, market opportunities or external
threats. But as utterly valuable as information on demand has
become, it also has become more costly to store, maintain
and protect.
A comprehensive approach to the challenges of providing
information on demand
To meet these challenges, IBM® has taken a holistic approach
to the problem, looking well beyond storage products alone to
help you share, manage and protect your data. To provide
complete solutions for businesses using the On Demand
model, IBM has addressed three areas of IT.
Infrastructure simplification
Few would question the statement that IT infrastructures have
grown more complex in recent years. The dramatic growth in
the use of IT, combined with distributed computing architectures, is part of the reason. But business processes have also
become more complex and integrated too, driving a greater
need for complex interconnections among systems.
The added complexity that accompanies growth can stand in
the way of fully realizing the benefits of IT. Infrastructure simplification is a way to look at the entire IT operation and help
eliminate the complexity that can raise costs, reduce reliability
and create dependencies on specialized skills—factors making
it harder to operate as an on demand business.
Three proven methods for simplifying an IT infrastructure are
consolidation, virtualization and automated management. Each
technique can be applied to all areas that compose an IT
operation—servers, storage and networks.
Within the storage arena, consolidation can include reducing
the number of data centers and sharing fewer large-capacity
storage systems among a greater number of application
servers. Consolidated resources can cost less and can be
easier to share and protect.
Storage virtualization involves a shift in thinking from physical
to logical—treating storage as a logical pool of resources, not
individual devices. Not only can this help simplify the storage
environment, but it also can help increase utilization and
availability.
The storage arena is ripe with opportunities to lower administrative costs through automation. Once tasks are automated,
administrators can deal with more strategic issues. In addition,
automation can help reduce errors and contribute to higher
system performance.
Business continuity
On demand businesses rely on their IT systems to conduct
business. Everything must be working all the time. Nothing
less is acceptable. A sound and comprehensive business continuity strategy encompasses high availability, near continuous
operations and disaster recovery. For each of these areas, the
IBM TotalStorage® Resiliency Family includes a comprehensive
set of products that are compatible with multiple platforms.
Information life cycle management
The primary goal of information life cycle management (ILM)
techniques is to optimize the storage and management of
information based on its value to your business. An ILM
process can help a business maximize the value of information, from the moment of its creation to the moment of its disposal. Corporate governance policies, business processes and
compliance guidelines all influence ILM policies.
The primary capabilities from IBM that support ILM include
optimized storage environments with tiered storage platforms;
policy-based retention management software; content and
records management applications; and non-erasable media.
The potential benefits to your business include improved risk
management, optimum storage utilization, better handling of
compliance issues and lower costs.

Manage storage volumes from a central point: The SVC is designed to enhance the flexibility of your storage environment. It can combine the storage capacity from multiple disk arrays from different suppliers into a single pool of storage
which can be managed from a central point.
Create a tiered storage environment: Utilizing virtualization technology, the SVC enables customers to match the cost
of the storage to the value of their data. Mission-critical data can be stored on high-performance highly-available fibrechannel disks while non-mission-critical data can be stored on serial-ATA disks.
Virtually eliminate downtime related to storage: The SVC enables data migrations, storage software upgrades and
changes to the physical storage without impacting host applications.
Improve storage resource utilization: By combining the storage capacity from multiple disk arrays into a single pool,
SVC uses existing storage capacity more efficiently, which can defer additional storage purchases to save costs.
A single, cost-effective set of advanced copy services: The SVC can apply copy services across all the managed storage, regardless of the disk array supplier. This capability helps simplify the environment, reduce the costs of implementing
disaster recovery solutions and increases the productivity of the personnel.
Manage storage volumes from a central point: The SVC storage software can combine the storage capacity from multiple disk arrays from different suppliers into a single pool of storage which can be managed from a central point in the
Cisco switched-fabric environment.
Create a tiered storage environment: Utilizing virtualization technology, the SVC for Cisco MDS 9000 solution enables
customers to match the cost of the storage to the value of their data. Mission-critical data can be stored on highperformance highly-available fibre-channel disks while non mission-critical data can be stored on serial-ATA disks.
