Software

The following functions are included with every Lenovo Storage V7000:

  • 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.

  • Four-system clustering

    Lenovo Storage V7000 systems can be clustered to help deliver greater performance, bandwidth, and scalability. A Lenovo Storage V7000 clustered system can contain up to four Lenovo Storage V7000 systems and up to 1056 drives.

  • HyperSwap for Spectrum Virtualize
    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.

  • Data Reduction Pools

    Help deliver consistent performance from compressed volumes and increase existing capacity utilization by automatically de-allocating and reclaiming capacity of thin-provisioned volumes containing deleted data and enabling this reclaimed capacity to be reused by other volumes.

  • Deduplication

    Increases the efficiency of storage usage by utilizing pointers in duplicate blocks rather than keeping multiple copies of the blocks.

  • One-way data migration

    Enables easy and nondisruptive moves of volumes from another storage system onto the Lenovo Storage V7000 Storage System by using FC connectivity.

  • Embedded GUI

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

  • Integrated Comprestimator

    The Comprestimator is the key sizing tool for Real-time Compression to estimate how much capacity savings the customer can expect. The Comprestimator can analyze the patterns of the actual customer data and estimate the compressibility of data per volume. The integration of the Comprestimator into a Spectrum Virtualize software helps ease the process of estimating Real-time Compression capacity savings from a central console.

The Lenovo Storage V7000 capabilities can be expanded with optional licensed functions. Each optional Lenovo Storage V7000 software license is required for each control enclosure, expansion enclosure, and externally virtualized storage 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, and NL SAS). This migration can be to different tiers of internal drives or to external storage systems that are virtualized by Lenovo Storage V7000.

  • FlashCopy

    FlashCopy enables creating copies of data for backup, parallel processing, testing, and development and have the copies available almost immediately.

  • 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). Real-time Compression uses hardware acceleration. 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.

  • Remote mirroring

    This feature provides storage system-based data replication by using synchronous or asynchronous data transfers over IP, FC, or FCoE communication links. The following mirroring options are available:

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

    For ultimate flexibility, Lenovo Storage V7000 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 licenses must be acquired for the primary (local) and secondary (remote) systems. If Lenovo Storage V7000 is mirrored to a system other than Lenovo Storage V7000, the other system must have the appropriate and applicable licenses for remote mirroring.

  • 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 Lenovo Storage V7000.

  • Transparent Cloud Tiering

    Transparent cloud tiering enables volume data to be copied and transferred to cloud storage. The system supports creating connections to cloud service providers (OpenStack Swift, Amazon S3, and IBM SoftLayer) to store point-in-time copies (snapshots) of volume data in private or public cloud storage and restore data from the cloud.
