Description
Bottom rule

New Easy Tier capabilities improve application performance for integration between DS8870 and the application server. Several existing functions are enhanced to improve resiliency for open and System z® environments.

Easy Tier Server

IBM System Storage Easy Tier Server is designed to improve the time for the application to access data that is stored on the attached servers or a DS8870 system. Easy Tier is designed to copy the frequently accessed data from the DS8870 storage tier to any supported direct attached flash connected to either a POWER7® or POWER7+™ server, while maintaining the enterprise reliability, replication, and synchronization the DS8870 already supports. This capability can provide increased transaction throughput by up to five times and supports all advanced functions e bled on the DS8870 transparently to the application. This function is supported only on POWER® servers running AIX operating systems.

Easy Tier Server solution is an optional capability of the DS8000 series, and is available with the Easy Tier Server indicator feature numbers 0715 and 7084, and corresponding DS8000 series Function Authorization (2396-LFA Easy Tier Server indicator feature number 7084).

Easy Tier Application

Easy Tier now allows administrators and applications to direct data placement in the underlying storage system through the Easy Tier Application. With this feature, Easy Tier now expands its automatic data placement framework to help improve storage performance based on application and business knowledge.

Easy Tier Application is the next evolution in the Easy Tier technology roadmap. Explicit data placement requests through the Easy Tier Application interface will be prioritized by Easy Tier in conjunction with its knowledge of measured data heat, storage device health, and the available capacity of a target tier. Easy Tier then generates migration plans based on these data placement requests and automatic tier management algorithms. In this way, Easy Tier Application adds to Easy Tier by supporting a user-controlled way to optimize the placement of individual volumes that are in a DS8000 extent pool containing multiple tiers of disk drives.

Below is a description of what can be done with Easy Tier Application.

  1. Easy Tier Application - data placement control
    1. Assign a volume to a storage device tier (SSD, ENT, nearline) by the heat order. On request, Easy Tier Application generates migration plans for extents within the requested volume and prioritizes hotter extents to be migrated first to the specified tier. After the execution, Easy Tier Application will keep the migrated data in the target tier as appropriate until the volume is unassigned.
    2. Assign a volume to a storage device tier (SSD, ENT, nearline) by the access order. On request, Easy Tier Application does not immediately generate a migration plan for the specified volume until actual I/O access to the volume takes place. When it does, Easy Tier Application generates a migration plan for the extents that are accessed. After the execution, Easy Tier Application will keep the migrated data in the target tier until the volume is unassigned.
    3. Unassign a volume. On request, Easy Tier Application clears the assign status of the volume and lets Easy Tier manage it based on the existing automatic tier management algorithms.
    4. Unassign all volumes in an extent pool. On request, Easy Tier clears the assign status for all the volumes in the specified extent pool, and lets Easy Tier manage them based on the existing automatic tier management algorithms.
  2. Easy Tier Application - data placement query
    1. Query volume assign state. Returns the assign status (assigned/in-progress/none) and the completion percentage if a request is still in progress.
    2. Query extent pool tier distribution. Returns the total capacity of each storage tier (SSD, ENT, nearline), as well as the used capacity and assigned capacity of each tier.
    3. Query volume tier distribution. Returns the capacity used by a volume on each storage tier (SSD, ENT, nearline). Easy Tier Application can be disabled, and this new function will not have any effect on the existing design and implementation of the current Easy Tier functionality.

Easy Tier Heat Map Transfer

Easy Tier now has the ability to transfer the heat map, also known as learning data, from the MM/GC/GM primary site and reapply it to the secondary site periodically through the Easy Tier Heat Map Transfer utility. Upon receiving a heat map, Easy Tier running on the DS8000 located at the secondary site uses the heat map to relocate the data to the appropriate storage tiers on a scheduled basis. With this capability, DS8000 can maintain the application-level performance at the MM/GC/GM secondary site assuming it has a similar configuration as the primary site. The goal is for a replication secondary to keep up with its primary in terms of data placement. This way, when the secondary has to take over supporting a production workload after a failover from the primary to the secondary site, there would be little to no impact to storage performance.

Easy Tier Heat Map Transfer utility provides a command line interface. It requires a Windows™ or Linux™ server with an IP network connected to the managed DS8000 systems on both primary sites and secondary sites. It can be installed and deployed in existing servers in a customer environment. After identifying the managed DS8000 systems to the Easy Tier Heat Map Transfer utility, it will detect the replication relationships and automatically schedule heat map transfers.

Easy Tier Heat Map Transfer utility provides the flexibility of managing up to 30 DS8000 systems with copy service relationships among them with a single software instance. It allows the combination of automatic heat map transfer done every 12 hours and manual data transfers initiated by the user as needed. It also provides a monitor interface to query the transfer results.

Easy Tier Heat Map Transfer utility communicates with the managed DS8000s using the same protocol as the DSCLI and users can apply the same authentication and secure methods as DSCLI for the Easy Tier Heat map transfer utility.

The Easy Tier Heat Map Transfer utility is also integrated with TPC-R and all the functions are available through TPC-R 5.1.1.1 release.

Improved FlashCopy handling of volume reservations

Previously, for a FlashCopy establish operation to a SCSI LUN, the target volume could not be reserved by a host. If the target volume was reserved, the Establish FlashCopy command would fail. There was no mechanism for a user to identify the server that has the volume reserved. The DS8870 now supports the capability to report the reserve information via a DSCLI command. In addition, the Establish FlashCopy command is being modified to add a parameter which allows the target device to be reserved.

For CKD volumes, a new function (VERIFYOFFLINE) was added to check if the volume is online to another z/OS host before performing the INIT or REFORMAT function. If the INIT or REFORMAT fails due to the volume online, the ICKDSF ANALYZE HOSTACCESS command or DEVSERV QDASD QHA command can be used to determine which z/OS hosts the volume is online to. This will prevent an accidental erase or rewrite of a volume by ICKDSF INIT and REFORMAT.

z/OS HyperSwap soft fence

This DS8000 capability prevents a host from reading or writing data on the previous primary storage system after a HyperSwap occurs. IBM System z servers require z/OS V2.1, or later, and GDPS® V3.9, or later to support z/OS HyperSwap Soft Fence. Refer to the Statement of general direction section for more information.

Timestamp synchronization for Sysplex and DS8000

The DS8000 Global Mirror feature will keep a record in the Global Mirror secondary system of the time the most recent consistency group was formed. The recorded time is based on the value of the associated System z Sysplex Timer® that is communicated by z/OS to the primary site DS8000 Global Mirror master session. This time can be retrieved from the secondary Global Mirror system following an unplanned failover to allow the time the last consistency group was formed to be correlated to other Sysplex events.

Support for VMware VAAI, vCenter, and SRM

VMware vSphere Storage APIs - Array Integration (VAAI) was first introduced with vSphere 4.1 enabling offloading specific tasks to storage arrays. The purpose is to consume less CPU, memory, and bandwidth on the host. VAAI defines a set of operations (or primitives) in terms of standard SCSI commands. DS8870 supports the following primitives:

  1. Hardware Assisted Locking of files
  2. Full Copy enables the storage array to make full copies of data within the array (allows VMware to invoke DS8000 FlashCopy )
  3. Block zeroing enables the array to zero out large numbers of blocks

In October 2012, DS8000 introduced support for Full Copy and Hardware Assisted Locking. In this release, support for Block Zero is being added which greatly reduces the number of SCSI (WRITE SAME) commands to be sent from the ESX host to the array when it needs to allocate previously used blocks to a new virtual machine image, freeing host resources to perform more important tasks.

IBM Storage Management Console for VMware vCenter for ESX 4 support

This plugin enables VMware administrators to manage their DS8000s from within the VMware management environment, including the VAAI primitives.

VMware SRM v5.0/5.1 certification

This provides simplified disaster recovery management for DS8000 VMware environments. Specifically, SRM provides methods to simplify and automate disaster recovery processes. Vendors provide a "Site Replication Adapter" (SRA) to communicate between SRM and the adapter. DS8000 support for SRM 4.1 has been provided with the current release of the IBM adapter, and support for SRM 5.0/5.1 includes the following, additional new features:

Support for IBM i variable LUN sizes

Support for IBM i variable LUN adds flexibility for volume sizes and can increase capacity utilization for IBM i environments. Now clients are allowed to add LUN sizes by increments of 1 GB, in the range of 1 GB up to 2,000 GB, providing more flexibility with larger volumes.

Maximum volume size supported is 2,000 GB and volume types supported are standard, Track Space Efficient (TSE), and Extent Space Efficient (ESE).

This function is supported on existing Power Systems™ machine type models that support the IBM i operating system.

Support for Symantec space reclamation (RPQ only)

The thin reclamation facility uses Symantec Storage Foundation to release unused space on a thin provisioned volume. Thin reclamation analyzes a thin provisioned volume to:

  1. Identify the allocated extents on a thin provisioned volume.
  2. Determine which of these extents are not in use.
  3. Release the allocated extents that are not being used.

To efficiently reclaim the unused extents, periodically defragment thin provisioned volumes to localize data, and then run the thin reclamation facility on the volumes to release the unused space.

Low cost entry class configuration options

The DS8870 is designed to provide a low cost entry class configuration option in addition to the business and enterprise class. This option alters the standard device adapter pair to drive fill pattern and provides a lower cost system solution with a balanced trade off in performance. The low cost entry class configuration is capable of achieving similar system performance to the standard offering when in large configurations. This option can only be applied in the factory and cannot be converted back to the standard configuration in the field.

Refer to the following table for more detail on supported drives and device adapters required with the low cost entry class configuration option.

Note: This is a reminder that model conversions are disruptive. Customers are responsible for backing up all data on the DS8800 and restoring it when the DS8870 is ready for production. The approximate duration for the conversion is three days.
Note: Prerequisites for model conversions can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8870 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-4209) .

No

Hardware requirements

Licensed Machine Code

All features and functions in this announcement are supported on the IBM System Storage DS8870 and require DS8000 Licensed Machine Code as follows:

Some DS8000 series features and functions may not be available or supported in all environments. Current information on supported environments, prerequisites, and minimum operating system levels is available at

http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/support/storage/config/ssic

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

Physical configuration planning

Physical configuration planning is a customer responsibility. A marketing specialist can help plan and select the DS8000 series physical configuration and features. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8870 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-4209).

Capacity and performance planning assistance is also available. Through the use of Disk Magic, a disk marketing specialist can help plan and anticipate performance characteristics for specific workloads by modeling proposed configurations.

Installation planning

Installation planning is a customer responsibility. Information about planning the installation of a DS8000 series, including equipment, site, and power requirements, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8870 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-4209).

Logical configuration planning and application

Logical configuration planning is a customer responsibility. Logical configuration refers to the creation of RAID ranks, volumes, and LUNs, and the assignment of the configured capacity to servers.

Application of the initial logical configuration and all subsequent modifications to the logical configuration is a customer responsibility. The logical configuration can be created, applied, and modified using the DS Storage Manager, DS CLI, or DS Open API.

IBM Global Services (IGS) will also apply or modify the logical configuration (fee-based services).

Licensed Machine Code planning and application

IBM may release changes to the DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code. IBM plans to make most DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code changes available for download by the DS8000 series system from the IBM System Storage technical support website. Not all Licensed Machine Code changes may be available via the support website. If the machine does not function as warranted and a problem can be resolved through the application of downloadable Licensed Machine Code, the customer is responsible for downloading and installing these designated Licensed Machine Code changes as IBM specifies. IBM has responsibility for installing changes that IBM does not make available for you to download. The DS8000 series includes many enhancements to make the Licensed Machine Code change process simpler, quicker, and more automated. A request can be made for IBM to install downloadable Licensed Machine Code changes, however there may be a charge for that service.

Calculating physical and effective capacity

Refer to the IBM System Storage DS8870 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-4209) for capacity calculation guidelines.

Encryption planning

Encryption planning is a customer responsibility. There are three major planning components to the implementation of an encryption environment. Review all planning requirements and include them in the installation considerations.

Key server planning

Key server planning is a customer responsibility. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM System Storage DS8870 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-4209).

DS8870 requires at least two key servers and associated software for each site which has one or more encryption-e bled DS8000 systems, according to the encryption best practices. One server must be isolated and the others can be of any supported key server configuration. Any site that operates independently of other sites must have key servers for the encryption e bled DS8000 systems at that site.

Dual platform key server planning

DS8000 supports the ability to configure two independent key labels for each encryption-e bled DS8000 . This capability allows the use of two independent key server platforms when one or both key server platforms are using secure-key mode key stores, allowing the isolated key server platform to be used in conjunction with a second key server platform that is operating with a secure-key mode key store.

For customers needing dual platform key server support on DS8000 , the installation of TKLM IFIX 2 (TKLM Version 1.0.0.2, or later) is recommended to support displaying both key labels in the GUI. Additionally, for customers who intend to replicate keys between separate z Series Sysplexes using ICSF with the JCECCARACFKS key store in secure key mode and with the secure key configuration flag set in TKLM, TKLM Fix Pack 3 (TKLM Version 1.0.0.3, or later) is required.

Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager planning

The DS8000 series supports IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager V2.0 and IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager V1.1.

Program
number       VRM    Program name
 
5724-T60    2.0.0   IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager
 
5608-A99    2.0.0   IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager (distributed
                     for non-Passport Advantage)
                    IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager for z/OS V1.0
 
Program
number       VRM    Program name
 
5698-B35    1.0.0   IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for z/OS
5698-B42    1.1.0   IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for Storage
 

To support enterprise-wide encryption key management, a new set of pricing metrics is now available. These pricing metrics are simpler and more comprehensive for devices, users, and server capacity.

For self-encrypting disk drives, the metric is per client device with the disk drive feature number.

For more information on the licensing requirements and pricing of the metric, refer to Software Announcement 211-305, dated August 30, 2011 .

Isolated key server ordering options:


Note: Regardless of the ordering method, customers will need to acquire a TKLM license for use of the TKLM software ordered separately from the stand-alone server hardware.
Note: The licensing for TKLM includes both an install license for the TKLM management software as well as licensing for the encrypting drives.

Refer to the following publications:

Full Disk Encryption Activation review planning

Full Disk Encryption Activation is a customer responsibility. IBM Full Disk Encryption offerings must be activated prior to use. This activation is part of the installation and configuration steps required for use of the technology. This installation and activation review is performed by the IBM Systems and Technology Lab Services group.

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, and AIX 7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM , which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type "smitty esa_main", and select "Configure Electronic Service Agent ." In addition, ESA now includes a powerful web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent , refer to

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-e bled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM . The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM . The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM .

More accurate reporting: Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM , problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Support website at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent . Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledge base. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.
