Therefore, the access to that LUN is exclusively reserved for that host. DS upgrade from 4 to 32 storage partitions. Ships with the rack mounting kit and two 2. The EXP comes with a 3 year, parts and labor next-business-day warranty standard.

DS Implementation Guide EXP – 2U, 19″ rack mount driven closure designed for supporting a total of twelve 3. Up to three EXPs can be connected to expand capacity and IOPs performance of the solution to help address your data needs today and tomorrow.

Many options are available to uplift this protection to higher levels. DS upgrade from 8 to 16 storage partitions. We call these sets storage partitions. Storage partitioning adds a high level of flexibility to the DS Storage Server. It ubm you to connect a much higher number of host systems, either in stand-alone or clustered mode.


Be aware that FlashCopy is a prerequisite for VolumeCopy. As opposed to Datashete where only the original values of changed data are copied to the repositorythe whole source logical drive is copied to target.

Purchase two datasheett dual controller models. That means once you have assigned the LUN to a host it is hidden from all other hosts connected to the same Storage Server. Back to Top Step 3: Back to Top Step 9: SAN Switches Step 8: DS Sample Configurations 2.

The DS comes with a 3 year, parts and labor next-business-day warranty standard. DS upgrade from 8 to 32 storage partitions. Two SFP’s needed for datashee single controller model. TD Back to Top Step 5: Without storage partitioning, the logical drives configured on a DS can only be accessed by a limited number of host systems or by a single cluster.

Available in single and dual controller models, the DS scales in capacity to support a total of 48 hard disk drives ds340 using the EXP expansion unit. DS comes standard with 4 storage partitions.

Allows for up to 4 FlashCopies per volume. VolumeCopy is a way to provide a complete point-in-time copy of a source logical drive.


With FC host connectivity and SAS back-end technology, the DS is designed to improve productivity through data consolidation, availability, performance and scalability. DS Model Step 2: FlashCopy is a point-in-time copy of a source logical drive. Expansion Unit Step 3: Now the host systems ibmm only access their assigned logical drives, just as if these logical drives were locally attached to them.

DS FlashCopy Expansion Plus License increases the number of FlashCopies per volume to eight allows more frequent data backups and increased data protection.

Back to Top Step 2: Storage partitioning adapts the SAN idea of globally accessible storage to the local-storage-minded operating systems.

Once all the data is copied to the target, the target will remain available if the source logical drive is lost.
