Introducing the IBM Storwize V7000
Tuesday 16th November 2010 at 12:00 ET
ABSTRACT: The IBM Storwize V7000 is a new midrange storage system providing modular scalability allowing you to start small and add disk capacity as your business needs dictate. The base integrated software functions include Thin Provisioning; which allows allocation of physical disk capacity only when data is written; Volume Mirroring; which allows for redundant synchronized copies of the data to exist for local high availability; FlashCopy; which allows for up to 256 point-in-time copies of your data to be created for various tasks; Easy Tier which automatically exploits solid state drives (SSDs) for optimal performance of your business applications; and storage tiering via the nondisruptive data migration capability of this new system. In addition; the Storwize V7000 can virtualize external storage from various vendors and replicate data between up to four Storwize V7000 systems to meet your Disaster Recovery and Business Continuance requirements. Based on the proven SAN Volume Controller virtualization system we have taken the best features from our storage portfolio and built a midrange storage system that can help simplify management of the explosive growth of data your business is experiencing.

What's New in the DS3000 Disk Family?
Broadcast Date: Tuesday August 3rd 2010
This presentation will introduce the industry leading storage device based on SAS II (6Gbps) host and drive connectivity. The DS3500 will support SAS II, SAS II with iSCSI, or SAS II with Fibre Channel host connectivity. The Drive back end loops are all SAS II (6 Gbps) which with SAS II technology can produce up to 24 Gbps per loop. We have merged the host connectivity of the DS3200 (SAS I), DS3300 (iSCSI), and DS3400 (Fibre Channel) into one new product (DS3500). We will discuss the different controller models (DS3512 & DS3524), expansion enclosures (EXP3512 & EXP3524), 2.5 inch, 3.5 inch drives, new Storage Manager, and new premium features available on the DS3500.
