Software

The following functions are included with every Lenovo Storage V5030:

  • 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 for internal storage
    Helps improve performance and availability with significantly faster rebuild time by allowing data to be distributed across more physical drives that are used simultaneously.
  • Dual-system clustering

    Lenovo Storage V5030 systems can be clustered to help deliver greater performance, bandwidth, and scalability. A Lenovo Storage V5030 clustered system can contain two Lenovo Storage V5030 systems and up to 1,008 drives, or one Lenovo Storage V5030 system and one Storwize V5000 for Lenovo (Machine Type 6194) system and up to 984 drives.

  • HyperSwap
    Provides dual-site, active-active access to a volume for high availability and disaster recovery configurations. With active-active relationships between the volume copies at each site, HyperSwap configurations can be used to maintain access to data on the system when site-wide failures or outages occur, using a flexible choice of host multipathing drivers.

    Note: HyperSwap feature requires a Remote Mirroring license and a third site to host an FC- or IP-based quorum device for an automatic tie-break in the event of a potential link failure between the two main sites.

  • Virtualization of internal storage

    Enables rapid, flexible provisioning and simple configuration changes.

  • Thin provisioning

    Optimizes efficiency by allocating drive storage space in a flexible manner among multiple applications that is based on the minimum space that is required by each application at any time. With thin provisioning, applications use only the space they are actually using (not the total space that was allocated to them) which allows clients to purchase storage they need today and add storage as application requirements grow.

  • One-way data migration

    Enables easy and nondisruptive moves of volumes from another storage system onto the Lenovo Storage V5030 storage system by using FC or SAS connectivity.

  • Embedded GUI

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

The Lenovo Storage V5030 storage capabilities can be expanded with optional licensed functions. Each optional Lenovo Storage V5030 software license is required for each control enclosure, expansion enclosure, and externally virtualized enclosures.

The following optional licensed functions are available:

  • Easy Tier

    Easy Tier provides a mechanism to seamlessly migrate frequently accessed data between three tiers of storage (Flash drives, SAS, NL SAS). This migration can be to different tiers of internal drives or to external storage systems that are virtualized by Lenovo Storage V5030.

  • FlashCopy

    Enables creation of copies of data for backup, parallel processing, testing, and development and have the copies available almost immediately. Lenovo Storage V5030 supports up to 2,048 FlashCopy targets per single system and up to 4,096 FlashCopy targets per cluster.

  • Real-time Compression

    Real-time Compression enables storing up to five times as much data in the same physical disk space by compressing data as much as 80% (based on lab measurements). It is designed to be used with active primary data, such as production databases and email systems, which dramatically expands the range of candidate data that can benefit from compression. Real-time Compression operates immediately as data is written to disk, meaning that no space is wasted storing uncompressed data awaiting post-processing.

  • Encryption

    This feature provides encryption for data at rest for enhanced data security. Encryption is performed by the Lenovo Storage V5030 control enclosure for data that is stored within the Lenovo Storage V5030 system (the control enclosure and all attached expansion enclosures) and externally virtualized storage capacities. Encryption feature does not require self-encrypting drives (SEDs); it works with traditional drives. Encryption is enabled on the entire Lenovo Storage V5030 system (the control enclosure and all attached expansion enclosures) and externally virtualized storage under its control.

  • 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:

    The remote mirroring option must be acquired (or licensed) for the primary (local) and secondary (remote) systems. If the Lenovo Storage V5030 is mirrored to another system, the other system must have the appropriate and applicable license for remote mirroring.

    For ultimate flexibility, Lenovo Storage V5030 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.

    • 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.

  • External Virtualization

    This feature helps consolidate storage systems from various vendors that are connected into single FC networking. Storage administrator can manage and provision storage to applications from a single user interface and use a common set of advanced functions across all the storage systems under the control of the Lenovo Storage V5030.

The Lenovo Storage V5030 supports 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 table lists ordering information for optional software features for the Lenovo Storage V5030 enclosures. Each Lenovo Storage V5030 enclosure (either control or expansion) requires a separate entitlement license; the total quantity of optional software feature licenses being acquired should be the same as the total number of the Lenovo Storage V5030 enclosures in the system or cluster.

Warranty services and upgrades

The Lenovo Storage V5030 has a three-year Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) and onsite warranty with 9x5/next business day (NBD) terms.

Note: When purchasing the system that includes 5-year software maintenance, additional two years of hardware support are required.

Some countries might have different warranty terms and conditions than the standard warranty. This is due to local business practices or laws in the specific country. Local service teams can assist in explaining country-specific terms when needed. Examples of country-specific warranty terms are second or longer business day parts delivery or parts-only base warranty.

If warranty terms and conditions include onsite labor for repair or replacement of parts, Lenovo will dispatch a service technician to the customer site to perform the replacement. Onsite labor under base warranty is limited to labor for replacement of parts that have been determined to be field-replaceable units (FRUs). Parts that are determined to be customer-replaceable units (CRUs) do not include onsite labor under base warranty.

If warranty terms include parts-only base warranty, Lenovo is responsible for delivering only replacement parts that are under base warranty (including FRUs) that will be sent to a requested location for self-service. Parts-only service does not include a service technician being dispatched onsite. Parts must be changed at customer’s own cost and labor and defective parts must be returned following the instructions supplied with the spares parts.

Also available are Lenovo Services warranty upgrades and post-warranty maintenance agreements, with a well-defined scope of services, including service hours, response time, term of service, and service agreement terms and conditions.

Lenovo warranty service upgrade offerings are country-specific. Not all warranty service upgrades are available in every country. For information about Lenovo warranty service upgrade offerings that are available in your country or area, refer to the following resources:

In general, the following Lenovo warranty service upgrades are available:
