Used IBM XIV Storage System
- The used IBM XIV Storage Array is a revolutionary, proven, high-end disk storage system designed for extreme ease of use and operational agility
- Consistent high performance without hotspots, along with massive parallelism, enabled by grid architecture
- Virtualized storage for optimized cloud and virtual environments
- High reliability and availability via full redundancy, self healing and unprecedented rebuild speed
- Low TCO due to aggregate benefits including high-density drives, simplified planning, low-touch management and cost-free features
The used IBM® XIV® Storage System is high-end disk storage that supports the need for high performance, reliability and flexibility while helping keep costs and complexity to a minimum. Efficient by design and born optimized to simplify storage, the XIV Storage System exemplifies IBM Smarter Storage for Smarter Computing, empowering thousands of organizations worldwide to take control of their storage and gain business insights from their data. Designed for consistent Tier 1 performance and five-nines availability, XIV storage offers low total cost of ownership (TCO) and addresses even the most demanding and diverse workloads. Never compromising performance for reliability, the XIV grid architecture delivers massive parallelism—resulting in uniform allocation of system resources at all times. A recognized leader in storage manageability, XIV storage sets a new standard for ease of use by automating most tasks and providing an extraordinarily intuitive user interface. This interface is accompanied by an equally rich and comprehensive command line interface (CLI) for tailoring the system to user requirements.
IBM unleashes the power of enterprise cloud computing with XIV storage and its leading combination of high performance, low TCO and easy scaling:
- Online volume mobility between XIV systems, using IBM Hyper-Scale technologies, brings dramatic operational flexibility to the data center and cloud computing with no disruption to applications.
- Facilitates aggressive thin provisioning, array rollover and retirement, and easier workload balancing across multiple XIV arrays
- Support for OpenStack, Grizzly version, including latest features, extends orchestrated management of cloud environments.
- Support for 4 TB disk drives increases maximum usable capacity by 33 percent over 3 TB drives, to 325 TB per system, contributing to space and energy efficiencies.
- SPC-1 benchmarking shows XIV storage has outstanding price-performance for online transaction processing (OLTP) and other random workload applications.
- On-the-go monitoring on Android devices extends handy XIV remote monitoring to even more users, complementing existing iOS support (Apple iPhone and iPad).
- Host connectivity benchmarking via the XIV host attachment kit and support for VMware vCenter Operations Manager (vCOPS) empowers clients with proactive host health management.
