Used IBM Storwize V7000 Storage Array

IBM Storwize V7000 is a virtualized, software-defined storage system designed to consolidate workloads into a single storage system for simplicity of management, reduced cost, highly scalable capacity, and high performance and availability. New Storwize V7000 models deliver improved performance, scalability, and efficiency.

The Storwize V7000 SFF Control Enclosure Model 524 features:

  • Two node canisters, each with an eight-core processor and 32 GB cache for a system total of 64 GB cache
  • 1 Gb Ethernet ports standard for 1 Gb iSCSI connectivity IBM United States Hardware Announcement 114-046 IBM is a registered trademark of International Business Machines Corporation 2
  • Up to two I/O adapter features for 8 Gb FC and 10 Gb iSCSI/FCoE connectivity
  • Supports up to twenty-four 2.5-inch drives
  • 2U, 19-inch rack mount enclosure

Model 524 comes standard with integrated, hardware-assisted compression acceleration. Real-time Compression workloads can further benefit from the optional cache upgrade to increase the total system cache to 128 GB and the optional compression accelerator card feature for additional hardware-assisted compression acceleration.

Storwize V7000 offers both LFF and SFF 12 Gb SAS expansion enclosure models. The Storwize V7000 LFF Expansion Enclosure Model 12F supports up to twelve 3.5- inch drives, while the Storwize V7000 SFF Expansion Enclosure Model 24F supports up to twenty-four 2.5-inch drives. High-performance disk drives, high-capacity nearline disk drives, and flash (solid state) drives are supported. Drives of the same form factor can be intermixed within an enclosure and LFF and SFF expansion enclosures can be intermixed within a Storwize V7000 system.

A Storwize V7000 Model 524 system scales up to 504 drives with the attachment of 20 Storwize V7000 expansion enclosures. Storwize V7000 systems can be clustered to help deliver greater performance, bandwidth, and scalability. A Storwize V7000 clustered system can contain up to four Storwize V7000 systems and up to 1,056 drives. Storwize V7000 Model 524 systems can be added into existing clustered systems that include previous generation Storwize V7000 systems.

For unified storage capability, Storwize V7000 can be combined with Storwize V7000 File Modules to create a Storwize V7000 Unified solution that consolidates block and file workloads into a single storage system for greater simplicity and efficiency. All Storwize V7000 functional capabilities are provided through IBM Storwize Family Software for Storwize V7000. For additional information on Storwize V7000 functional capabilities and software, refer to the materials listed in the Reference information sectio
