  • Rich set of standard functions are available at no extra cost, including virtualized internal storage, thin provisioning, one-way data migration, FlashCopy snapshots (up to 64 targets), and embedded GUI.
  • Optional licensed functions, including higher number of FlashCopy snapshots, Easy Tier, and Remote Mirroring.
  • VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVol) integration brings advanced storage management functions to the virtual machine level for finer VM storage service level control and policy-driven automation.

    Note: VVol integration feature requires Spectrum Control Base Edition for Lenovo that can be downloaded from http://datacentersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/storage/lenovo-storage/v3700v2/6535/downloads

  • Intuitive, web-based GUI for easy system set up and management.
  • Extensive interoperability with support for most major server platforms and operating systems.
  • Lenovo Storage V Series systems that are based on Spectrum Virtualize software provide five 9’s (99.999%) availability which means an average annual downtime of less than five minutes.

The Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 and V3700 V2 XP support the complete range of data storage requirements, from highly utilized applications to high-capacity, low usage applications, with the flexible choice of drives.

The following 2.5-inch drives are supported:

  • High-performance SSDs: 400 GB, 800 GB, 1.6 TB, and 3.2 TB SAS
  • Read-optimized SSDs: 1.92 TB, 3.84 TB, 7.68 TB, and 15.36 TB SAS
  • Performance-optimized, enterprise class disk drives:
    • 300 GB and 600 GB 15K rpm SAS
    • 900 GB, 1.2 TB, and 1.8 TB 10K rpm SAS
  • High-capacity, archival-class nearline disk drives: 2 TB 7.2K rpm NL SAS

The following 3.5-inch drives are supported:

  • Performance-optimized, enterprise class disk drives:
    • 300 GB and 600 GB 15K rpm SAS
    • 900 GB, 1.2 TB, and 1.8 TB 10K rpm SAS
  • High-capacity, archival-class nearline disk drives: 4 TB, 6 TB, 8 TB, and 10 TB 7.2K rpm NL SAS

All drives are dual-port and hot-swappable. Drives of the same form factor can be intermixed within the appropriate enclosure, which provides the flexibility to address performance and capacity needs within a single enclosure.

Up to nine Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 expansion enclosures are supported by a single Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 or V3700 V2 XP control enclosure. Customers can intermix 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch expansion enclosures behind a 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch control enclosure. This configuration delivers the added flexibility to mix 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives within a single system (but not within the enclosure). More drives and expansion enclosures are designed to be dynamically added with virtually no downtime, which helps to quickly and seamlessly respond to ever-growing capacity demands.

The Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 and V3700 V2 XP storage systems are designed to offer high levels of system and data availability with the following technologies:

Software

The Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 and V3700 V2 XP functional capabilities that are described in this product guide are based on the Spectrum Virtualize for Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 Software version 7.6.1.

The following software features are included with every Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 or V3700 V2 XP storage system:

  • RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10

    Provides the flexibility to choose the level of data protection that is required.

  • Distributed RAID 5 and 6

    Helps improve performance and availability with significantly faster rebuild time by allowing data to be distributed across more physical drives that are used simultaneously.

  • Virtualization of internal storage

    Enables rapid, flexible provisioning and simple configuration changes.

  • Thin Provisioning

    Optimizes efficiency by allocating disk storage space in a flexible manner among multiple users, based on the minimum space required by each user at any time. With thin provisioning, applications use only the space they are actually using, not the total space that is allocated to them.

  • One-way Data Migration

    Enables easy and nondisruptive moves of volumes from another storage system onto the Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 or V3700 V2 XP storage system by using FC or SAS connectivity.

  • FlashCopy

    Enables creation of copies of data for backup, parallel processing, testing, and development, and have the copies available almost immediately. Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 and V3700 V2 XP storage systems support up to 64 targets per system at no charge.

  • Embedded GUI

    Intuitive, web-based next-generation GUI for easy system set up and management.

The Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 and V3700 V2 XP storage capabilities can be expanded with optional licensed functions. Each optional software function is licensed on a per-system basis and covers controller enclosure and all attached expansion enclosures.

To help evaluate the benefits of these new capabilities, licensed functions (with the exception of FlashCopy upgrade) can be enabled at no charge for a 90-day trial period. Trials are started from the Lenovo Storage management GUI and do not require any Lenovo intervention. Upon expiration of the trial, the function is automatically disabled unless a license key for that function was installed onto the machine.

The following optional licensed functions are available:

  • FlashCopy Upgrade

    Enables creation of copies of data for backup, parallel processing, testing, and development, and have the copies available almost immediately. Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 and V3700 V2 XP storage systems support up to 64 targets per system at no charge. The FlashCopy upgrade option increases this support to 2,048 FlashCopy targets per system.

  • Easy Tier

    Storage tiering helps optimize storage use with data location to improve system performance, reduce costs, and simplify management. Easy Tier automatically and dynamically moves frequently accessed data to flash (solid-state) drives in the system, which results in flash drive performance without manually creating and managing storage tier policies. Easy Tier makes it easy and economical to deploy flash drives in the environment.

  • Remote Mirroring

    The remote mirroring feature provides storage system-based data replication by using synchronous or asynchronous data transfers over IP, FC, or FCoE communication links:

    • Metro Mirror maintains a fully synchronized copy at metropolitan distances (up to 300 km).
    • Global Mirror operates asynchronously and helps maintain a copy at much greater distances (up to 8000 km).

      Both functions support VMware Site Recovery Manager for disaster recovery.

    For ultimate flexibility, Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 and V3700 V2 XP remote mirroring interoperates with any Lenovo Storage V Series, Storwize for Lenovo, or IBM Storwize family system, including Storwize V3700, Storwize V7000, Storwize V5000, and SAN Volume Controller.

    The remote mirroring option must be acquired (or licensed) for the primary (local) and secondary (remote) systems. If the Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 or V3700 V2 XP is mirrored to another system, the other system must have the appropriate and applicable license for remote mirroring.

The Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 and V3700 V2 XP support the following management interfaces:

  • Web-based graphical user interface (GUI) via HTTPS that requires only a supported browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox), so there is no need for a separate console or plug-in
  • Command line interface (CLI) via SSH
  • Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S)
  • SNMP and email notifications

The following tables list ordering information for optional software features for the Lenovo Storage V3700 V2 and V3700 V2 XP.
