  • Launch in-context with IBM Systems Director integrates server/storage management
  • Easy navigation between screens guides users to next step
  • Provision a volume in as few as six clicks; setup system in a few clicks
  • Initial set up in minutes


management simplicity two options for storage management
Management SimplicityTwo Options for Storage Management
  • Out of the box management: browser-based, included with storage
    • Applies to: Storwize V3700
    • Usage: Midmarket client for simple and basic configuration and management
    • Value: Simple, single device setup and management


2. Integrated IBM server and storage management: Systems Director + Storage Control

  • Applies to: Internal and external IBM storage and IBM servers (Power, System x, BladeCenter)
  • Usage: clients with system administrators who cover both server and storage management
  • Value: Manage all the IBM servers and storage devices from one pane of glass

Internal Virtualization

  • Enables rapid, flexible provisioning and simple configuration changes
  • Enables non-disruptive movement of data among tiers of storage, including Easy Tier
  • Enables data placement optimization to improve performance
  • Complements virtualized servers and cloud strategy

FlashCopy and FlashCopy Manager


  • Create instant application copies for backup or application testing
  • Make better use of space with incremental (only changed blocks) or space-efficient (thin provisioned) snapshots
  • Can help to reduce space required for copies

FlashCopy Manager

  • Integrated, instant copy for criticalapplications
  • Virtually eliminate backup windows
  • Rapidly create clones for application testing
  • View inventory of application copies and instantly restore
thin provisioning
Thin Provisioning
  • Without thin provisioning, pre-allocated space is reserved whether the application uses it or not.
  • With thin provisioning, applications can grow dynamically, but only consume space they are actually using.
    • More productive use of available storage
    • Across all supported host platforms
    • Improve storage utilization by enabling applications to consume only the space they are using






One-way Data migration

  • Transparent data movement
  • Efficiently manage technology upgrades and lease terminations by transparently moving application data from legacy disk arrays to the new system.
  • Reduce migration elapsed time from weeks or months to days
storwize v3700 licensed functions
Storwize V3700 Licensed Functions


* Trial not available for FlashCopy upgrade option

Easy Tier, remote mirror, FlashCopy upgrade and turbo performance are optional licensed functions

  • License applies to entire system (no per-enclosure licensing)

Clients can enable one-time trial for any function* from GUI

  • Function automatically disabled after 90 days if not licensed

IBM ships printed page with authorization code when function ordered

  • Not associated with any specific machine
  • May be stocked by business partners if desired

Authorization code can be used only once; license key is specific to one machine

Licenses cannot be transferred between systems: if system is sold, license ownership transfers with it

easy tier
Easy Tier

IBM Easy Tier option now available for Storwize V3700

Create volumes in hybrid pool containing HDD and SSD

Easy Tier constantly analyzes I/O and migrates data to optimize performance

Unlike competitive tiering offerings, set it and forget it

Easy Tier delivers significant improvements with modest investment in SSD

  • Improve application performance up to 3x with only 5% SSD

Use STAT tool to size SSD


remote mirror
Remote Mirror


Enables replication of selected volumes to remote system

  • Primarily intended for disaster recovery

Partner system may be any Storwize family offering

  • Offers great configuration flexibility
  • Must also be licensed for remote mirror

Three remote mirror techniques supported

  • Metro Mirror: synchronous, up to 300km distance
  • Global Mirror: asynchronous, up to 8000km distance
  • Global Mirror with change volumes: lower bandwidth option

Fibre channel HIC required for communication with remote system

  • FCIP routers may be used for IP connections


flashcopy upgrade
FlashCopy Upgrade

FlashCopy (“snapshot”) function included as standard with up to 64 targets

  • May be 64 copies of one volume, or 32 copies of two volumes, and so on

New option enables up to 2040 target copies

  • Up to 256 copies of any individual volume

Enables taking more or more frequent copies

  • Support more VMs from a single master copy
  • Enables more work to proceed in parallel

More copies can reduce impact of having to use a backup copy

  • For example, taking a copy every hour instead of every day
  • Reduces potential impact by up to 95%


turbo performance
Turbo Performance

New turbo performance option improves maximum system throughput

  • Up to 50% greater IOPS
  • Up to 100% greater MB/s throughput

Actual client experience will depend on workloads and number of drives installed

  • If necessary, verify with Disk Magic

Enabled through key

  • No hardware change
  • Nondisruptive upgrade

Supports growing customer businesses

Purchase additional performance only when needed


Turbo Performance

High performance in an entry disk system

Almost 300,000 IOPS / 530,000 with Turbo

Up to 36,000 IOPS for “database-like” 70/30 R/W workload

RAID-5 Performance Comparison

Note: Measurements are in systems unconstrained by number of disk drives
