 • Simplified and centralized management for your storage infrastructure
An integrated hardware/software storage solution that uses virtualization technology to simplify the storage infrastructure, reduce the costs of managing storage and enable businesses to grow their storage environments without disrupting their applications.
  • Combine storage capacity from multiple disk systems into a reservoir of capacity that can be managed more efficiently
  • Help increase storage utilization by providing host applications with more flexible access to capacity
  • Help improve storage administrator productivity by automating provisioning and enabling management of heterogeneous storage systems using a simple common interface
  • Support improved application availability by practically eliminating storage related causes of application downtime
  • Enable a tiered storage environment in which the cost of storage can be better matched to the value of data
  • Support advanced copy services from higher tolower cost devices and across storage systems from multiple vendors
  • Reduce costs and improve flexibility with iSCSI host attachment
  • Enable greater flexibility in storage acquisitions
  • Deliver ultra-high performance for critical workloads with innovative and tightly integrated support for solid-state devices (SSDs)
  • Help improve storage efficiency with real-time compression
  • Cache Memory
  • 24 GB cache per node (mirrored per I/O group)
  • Interface to Hosts
  • iSCSI @ 1Gb, iSCSI @ 10Gb (option); FCoE with 10 GbE ports (option); FC @ 8Gb/s: 2 per node, 4 per I/O group, 16 per cluster
  • Interface to Disks
  • FC @ 8Gb/s: 2 per node, 4 per I/O group, 16 per cluster; Up to four 200GB or 400 GB SSD (Solid State Disks) per node
  • Copy Services
  • Copy data across multiple storage subsystems with FlashCopy: up to 256 targets from a single source; Multi-Target Reverse FlashCopy; VDisk mirroring; Easy Tier; Nondisruptive volume moves across clustered systems; Copy data across metropolitan (Metro Mirror) and global distances; (Global Mirror) as needed to create high-availability storage solutions; Multiple Cluster Mirror; Management using SSPC (System Storage Productivity Center) console
