Focus on Storage
retired or repurposed. The DS8870 model supports the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) T10 Data Integrity Field standard, which ensures the integrity of business-critical data remains intact as it moves from the server to the storage system. The federal ENERGY STAR program is working to define what it means to be ENERGY STAR compliant from a disk-system perspective. Although the final definition is still being established, the DS8870 model is well-positioned to meet this standard. The new controllers and a new power supply allow it to maximize storage utilization while minimizing the power and cooling required to support the IT infrastructure. “Deploying this new model will help clients address their rising energy costs by lowering the energy requirements by as much as 20 percent compared to the prior DS8800 model,” says IBM’s Allen Marin, marketing manager, Enterprise Disk Storage. “We’re getting more energy-efficient and promoting environmentally conscious manufacturing. We restricted the use of certain hazardous

substances in manufacturing the DS8870. The main focus for this release is on the tremendous increase in performance of the DS8870, but clients will appreciate the energy savings and environmental aspects of the new system, too.” The DS8870 model offers self-tuning performance thanks to Easy Tier* technology, which provides automated performance tuning for single-tier and multitier systems. Data is dynamically moved around the system to help keep performance tuned, all while taking advantage of the capacity across various drive tiers within the system.

Introducing IBM System Storage TS7700
protection down while maintaining the highest level of data recovery and disaster protection. Designed to offer intelligent, energy-efficient and lower-cost protection, the TS7700 features include: Availability and resiliency, thanks to the IBM Power Systems* architecture’s long history of providing fast recovery and data protection The benefits of both disk and tape to deliver energy and performance efficiency with optimized storage tiering The use of IBM’s GRID configuration to combine multiple TS7700 types, which may optimize capacity and function The capability to scale up to hundreds of terabytes of data protection across up to 4 million virtual tape cartridges with the TS7720 Enhanced security with self-encrypting drives in the TS7720 and the TS7740 —C.V.

nnounced along with the DS8870, IBM System Storage TS7700 is aimed at clients—with single or multiple data centers—seeking to keep the cost of data

Juggling Workloads The DS8000 series can support a mix of random and sequential workloads that exist in complex data centers. This self-tuning system can manage these workloads simultaneously, which reduces the challenge of maintaining complex data centers. “The new model substantially increases the performance for a variety of workloads, whether they’re transactional workloads or sequential workloads, such as large database table scans we see in analytics workloads,” Marin says. “There are substantial performance increases across the board for both System z volumes and distributed volumes of up to three times over the existing DS8800 model.” In fact, the Storage Performance Council (SPC) sets an industry standard performance benchmark that most storage vendors use to validate their performance results. The key to this benchmark is that a third party oversees the testing, Marin notes, and clients can compare the same workloads across different vendors. The results are independently validated through a third-party storage council. Smarter Storage This latest release comes on the heels of the Smarter Storage for Smarter Computing announcement in June, addressing the fact that the amount of
