Did you know?

The ThinkSystem DS2200 supports Intelligent Real-time Tiering capabilities that help optimize system performance, reduce costs, and simplify management. The base software includes the ability to move data dynamically between SAS HDDs that are optimized for cost per IOPS and NL SAS HDDs that are optimized for cost per GB. With the optional software license, the DS2200 supports hybrid tiering across HDDs and SSDs.

The ThinkSystem DS2200 offers the flexible choice of 12 Gb SAS, 1/10 Gb iSCSI, and 4/8/16 Gb Fibre Channel (FC) host connectivity protocols. The Converged Network Controller (CNC) design of the DS2200 makes the selection of iSCSI or FC host connectivity as simple as attaching corresponding transceivers or Direct-Attach Copper (DAC) cables to the SFP/SFP+ ports on the controller module.

The ThinkSystem DS2200 supports battery-free cache protection, which reduces maintenance costs and provides permanent backup of unwritten cache data if there is a power failure.

Software

The following functions are included with every ThinkSystem DS2200:

  • Intelligent Real-time Tiering for HDDs: Storage tiering helps optimize storage use with intelligent data placement to improve system performance, reduce costs, and simplify management. The DS2200 automatically and dynamically moves frequently accessed data to higher performing HDDs in the system without manually creating and managing storage tier policies.
  • All Flash Array (AFA) capability: Meets the demand for higher speed storage and provide higher IOPs and bandwidth with lower power usage and total cost of ownership than hybrid or HDD-based solutions.
  • RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10: Provide the flexibility to choose the level of data protection required.
  • Virtualized storage pools: Enables rapid, flexible storage provisioning and simple configuration changes. Stored data is distributed across all drive groups in the pool (wide striping) which helps improve performance, lower latency, and achieve higher volume capacities. When a new drive group is added to the pool, the system performs automatic rebalancing to utilize all drives in the pool for better performance.
  • Thin provisioning: Optimizes efficiency by allocating drive storage space in a flexible manner among multiple applications, based on the minimum space required by each application at any given time. With thin provisioning, applications consume only the space they are actually using, not the total space that has been allocated to them, which allows clients to purchase storage they need today and add more as application requirements grow.
  • SSD Read Cache: An extension of the controller's cache to improve performance of read-centric workloads
  • Rapid RAID Rebuild: Helps significantly decrease the time to recover lost data by only rebuilding the stripe where the corruption occurred, not the empty space or other stripes
  • Snapshots: Enables creation of copies of data for backup, parallel processing, testing, and development, and have the copies available almost immediately. Base software supports up to 128 snapshot targets per system.

The ThinkSystem DS2200 capabilities can be expanded with optional licensed functions.

Optional licensed functions include:

  • Intelligent Real-time Tiering for SSDs: The SSD tiering upgrade option allows the use of SSDs as read and write storage in the hybrid HDD and SSD storage configurations. Also, this option makes it easy and economical to deploy hybrid storage by dynamically moving frequently accessed data to SSDs in the system, resulting in flash drive performance without manually creating and managing storage tier policies.
  • Snapshots upgrade: The snapshot upgrade options increase the supported number of snapshot targets to 512 or 1024 per system.
  • Asynchronous Replication: The asynchronous replication feature provides storage system-based data replication between two peers by using asynchronous data transfers over IP (iSCSI) communication links.

    The replication is done at predetermined intervals (Now, 1 hour, 12 hour, 24 hour) and does not require high-bandwidth network connection. For ultimate flexibility, DS2200 asynchronous replication interoperates with the ThinkSystem DS4200 and DS6200, as well as Lenovo Storage S2200 and S3200.

    The asynchronous replication option must be acquired (or licensed) for both primary (local) and secondary (remote) systems.

The following table lists the Feature on Demand (FoD) upgrades for the ThinkSystem DS2200 to enable optional software features. Each optional DS2200 function is licensed on a per-system basis and covers both controller enclosure and all attached expansion units.

* The SSD Data Tiering Upgrade option is not required for all flash array configurations (a storage system with SSDs only; no HDDs installed); however, it is required for hybrid configurations (a storage system with SSDs and HDDs).
** Asynchronous Replication requires an FC and iSCSI Controller-based DS2200 storage unit.

Software maintenance for standard software features is included in the ThinkSystem DS2200 base warranty and optional warranty extensions, which provides 3-year software support with the option to extend it up to 5 years in 1-year or 2-year increments (see Warranty for details).

Optional software features include 3-year software maintenance with the ability to extend it up to 5 years in 1-year or 2-year increments with the purchase of the software maintenance extension options that are listed in the following table.

Note: The ThinkSystem DS2200 must have active warranty coverage for the duration of an intended software maintenance extension period.

Management

The ThinkSystem DS2200 supports the following management interfaces:

  • Lenovo Storage Management Console (SMC), a web-based interface (WBI) via HTTP, 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 Telnet or SSH or through Direct Connect USB.
    Note: Direct Connect USB may require device drivers on the connected computer that uses older Windows operating systems. Drivers are provided on the Lenovo support site, if needed.
  • SNMP and e-mail notifications.
  • Optional Lenovo XClarity for discovery, inventory, monitoring, alerts, and firmware updates.
