Why IBM Information Infrastructure
IBM Information Infrastructure helps organizations manage the
incredible explosion in the amount and types of digital information, even during difficult economic times. IBM Information
Infrastructure can help clients lower storage acquisition costs
dramatically while improving data resiliency and security. Today,
IBM offers proven capabilities in core technologies such as
deduplication, virtualization, encryption, and solid-state storage. New solutions are available for larger organizations using
mainframes, as well as for midsize organizations. New Smart
Business Systems simplify deployment of private cloud solutions for archiving and network file services.
IBM Information Infrastructure can do much more than help
reduce costs. IBM Information Infrastructure is also an important enabler of information-led transformation, which is key to
growth for many organizations. Information-led transformation
is a process through which organizations turn information into
a strategic driver for innovation, business optimization, and
competitive differentiation. Information-led transformation can
help clients use information more pervasively across the organization, leverage analytics to take a predictive view of the business, make real-time decisions, and discover new kinds of
intelligence from the information at hand.
As organizations build new information-driven or informationbased products and services, throughput and availability
requirements will increase dramatically. IBM enables
information-led transformation with innovative technology
that breaks through traditional performance barriers, and with
best practice-based services to help clients manage the transition. An example is smart use of solid-state storage, where
IBM storage arrays and virtualization controllers with a small
amount of solid-state disk can deliver drastic improvements in
throughput.

any pool transparently and quickly without any administrator involvement, offering reduced administrative
tasks, costs, and faster response time to end users.
IBM Scale Out Network Attached Storage (SONAS) Highlights
●
●
●
●
●
Manage multiple petabytes of storage and up to a billion files in a single file system
Achieve operational efficiency with automated, policy-driven tiered storage
Lower TCO with automated life cycle management and migration to tape
Scale-out performance to satisfy bandwidth hungry applications
Asynchronous replication for disaster recovery and business continuity
IBM Scale Out Network Attached Storage (SONAS) is a scale-out NAS solution designed to manage vast repositories of information in enterprise environments requiring very large capacities, high levels of performance, and high availability. Leveraging mature technology from IBM’s
High Performance Computing experience and based upon IBM’s General Parallel File System (GPFS™), SONAS is an easy-to-install, turnkey,
modular, scale out NAS solution.
Another concern for organizations is the crowded floor space that can result when they are forced to allocate one controller per file system. However, by using IBM SONAS, organizations can consolidate and
manage information to avoid problems associated with administering an array of disparate storage systems.
SONAS is highly scalable, helps conserve floor space, and can help reduce CAPEX and enhance operational efficiency. Its advanced architecture virtualizes and consolidates multiple filers into a single, enterprisewide global file system, which can translate into reduced total cost of ownership.
IBM SONAS is designed to scan very large file systems at a high rate of speed utilizing the high performance Policy Engine. The Policy Engine
can scan ten million files per minute, per node and can expand up to 30 nodes. Some or all nodes (both storage and interface) can scan in
parallel to offer tremendous time and cost savings in administering petabytes of data.

Reduce storage complexity and lower costs through virtualization. IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller keeps it simple.
Product
IBM System
Storage SAN Volume
Controller (SVC)
Function and Value
SAN Volume Controller is a disk storage virtualization system that is designed to help businesses improve storage
utilization and reduce the costs associated with disk storage. SAN Volume Controller is designed to pool storage
volumes from IBM and non-IBM storage systems into a
reservoir of capacity for centralized management. SAN
Volume Controller is also designed to hide the boundaries
among disk systems, which helps simplify management
and enables customers to focus on managing storage as a
resource to meet business requirements and not as a set
of boxes.

ance with SSDs for critical applications, up to 800,000 read I/Os per second. SVC helps
move critical data to and from SSDs as needed without application disruption. The Easy Tier
function automatically migrates only active portions of volumes to SSD, helping to optimize
both performance and cost. And now announcing Easy Tier support for internal SVC SSDs.
Innovative Solid-State Device (SSD) support: The SVC scalable architecture is
designed to deliver outstanding performance with SSDs for critical applications, up to
800,000 read I/Os per second. SVC helps move critical data to and from SSDs as needed
without application disruption. The new Easy Tier function automatically migrates only active
portions of volumes to SSD, helping to optimize both performance and cost.
iSCSI server attachment support: iSCSI attachment avoids the cost of fibre channel
host bus adapters (HBAs) in servers and reduces the need for fibre channel switches. This
capability may be particularly attractive for IBM BladeCenter server configurations.
Improved storage utilization: By pooling capacity, storage administrators can make
better use of the storage capacity. Improvements of up to 30 percent in storage utilization
have been seen in SVC customers. SVC’s Space-Efficient Virtual Disks function helps to
improve storage utilization even more because it is designed to use physical storage capacity
only when data is written to virtual disks instead of dedicating physical capacity to the entire
defined virtual capacity. This capability is also referred to as “thin provisioning.”
Reduced storage growth: SVC helps reduce storage growth; customers have seen
reductions in growth of up to 20 percent.
Simplified management: SVC provides a single interface for managing all types of supported storage. As a result, storage administration is made simpler and storage administrators can become more productive. Productivity improvements of up to two times have been
seen in SVC customers. SVC presents a fresh new user interface based on the popular
XIV user interface making it even easier to use than ever.
Storage virtualization support: Storage virtualization with SVC enables customers to
obtain maximum benefit from virtualized infrastructures. SVC supports VMware vStorage API
for Array Integration (VAAI) and vCenter management, up to 95 percent reduction in server
and SAN usage for functions such as Storage vMotion and VMware View1
Tiered storage: SVC makes it much easier to implement tiered storage, which enables a
mix of different types of storage to be used, including lower cost storage helping to reduce
overall costs. Because SVC also has cache, it can improve the performance of data stored
on lower cost storage, enabling such storage to be used more widely in a data center, further
reducing costs.
Replication functions: SVC implements a common set of replication functions
(IBM FlashCopy, Metro Mirror and Global Mirror) that can be applied to all supported storage.
This ability can help enhance the value of lower cost storage that may have more basic
functionality and helps improve choice when selecting storage, which can be limited by proprietary replication functions. The Space-Efficient FlashCopy function helps to dramatically
reduce the amount of storage needed for FlashCopy replicas. Savings of 75 percent or more
can be expected.
Improved availability: SVC makes it possible to move data among supported disk systems without disrupting applications. As a result, common data center events such as
moving data at lease expiration or rebalancing loads across disk systems no longer require
costly outages. The Virtual Disk Mirroring function helps to protect against failure of disk
systems or disruptive maintenance activities to disk systems.

increasing your flexibility for both small and large IT projects.
Offerings, rates, terms and availability may vary by country. Contact your local IBM representative or visit the web at ibm.com/financing
The workshop begins with the client gathering data and continues with a one or two day
onsite workshop (depending on scope) with client participants who are integral to storage
use and management. The workshop team discusses storage- related issues and concerns
and develops recommendations to address them. The IBM team then creates a report that
captures the issues and concerns, offers recommendations, and provides a high-level business case that compares business as usual storage growth and management against an
optimized storage infrastructure using the recommendations developed in the workshop.
This engagement takes 2 to 4 weeks.
http://stgls01.rchland.ibm.com:81/toasted.nsf/services/AGSYS018
IBM Systems
Demand for lightning-fast communication and transactions has driven the need for a high-performance, responsive infrastructure that embraces open standards—exactly what you will find in
the IBM Systems product portfolio. Investments in servers often result in demands on disk and tape storage systems. IBM has a family of storage offerings that complements the IBM Systems
product portfolio. There is no better storage offering for IBM Systems than an IBM System Storage product. These offerings are tested and supported by IBM and are backed by outstanding

Information Infrastructure Storage Optimization Study
The Storage Optimization Study is more detailed than the Workshop. Like the Workshop,
the Optimization Study assesses the current state of a client’s IT storage infrastructure and
identifies alternative approaches for optimizing the storage environment using best practices and “green” principles for reducing the storage footprint.
The assessment begins with onsite client interviews to develop a deeper understanding of
the issues and concerns regarding storage. Initial findings are reviewed with the client executive sponsor and then the team goes offsite to analyze data, develop recommendations
and create a report that contains the following elements: a review of the current storage
infrastructure, current storage environment issues and concerns, recommendations to
address the issues, and a business case that compares business-as-usual with an optimized storage infrastructure. This engagement takes 6 to 8 weeks.
