IBM System Storage Product Guide
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 solidstate 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.

IBM Information Archive is the next-generation information retention solution designed as a universal archiving repository for all types of content to help midsize and enterprise clients reduce cost, manage risk and
address clients complete information retention needs—business, legal, or regulatory.
Universal storage repository for all types of content, structured and unstructured, compliant and noncompliant
Provides up to three customizable information collections per IBM Information Archive
Provides up to three information protection levels offering maximum flexibility
Stores information via multiple access methods
Scales up to 304 TB (raw capacity)
Maintains data integrity until deletion is permitted by retention policy and information protection level
Enhanced security and protection with data encryption option
Helps optimize storage consumption with data deduplication and compression features
Offers low TCO by allowing use of mixed media (disk and tape)
Increases data security through patent-pending enhanced tamper protection feature
This highly versatile, Smart Business System can help minimize your business risk and support regulatory
compliance by providing a secure and protected storage repository.
The IBM Information Archive can help reduce the need and expense for primary storage by enabling
archiving applications to move less-active but business vital information off the primary storage tier to costeffective and scalable “archive” storage tier, to help reduce information infrastructure costs immediately.
In addition, the IBM Information Archive enforces policies across a single repository that may combine both
disk and multiple tape systems that scale to petabytes in size. This combination can provide exceptionally
low overall cost of ownership.

functional richness of the full SVC product but is packaged and priced to meet the requirements of small and midsize business (SMB) customers. SVC Entry Edition supports storage
configurations containing up to 250 disk drives and is designed to grow smoothly with your
business.
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.
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.
Storage virtualization support: Storage virtualization with SVC enables customers to
obtain maximum benefit from virtualized infrastructures.
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.

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 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.

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.
