Software

The following functions are included with every ThinkSystem DE4000F:

  • RAID levels 1, 5, 6, and 10: Provide the flexibility to choose the level of data protection required.
  • Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) technology: Helps improve performance and availability with significantly faster rebuild time and reduced exposure to multiple drive failures by allowing data and built-in spare capacity to be distributed across all physical drives in the storage pool.
  • 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.
  • Thin provisioning: Optimizes efficiency of Dynamic Disk Pools by allocating storage space based on the minimum space required by each application at any given time, so that applications consume only the space they are actually using, not the total space that has been allocated to them, which allows customers to purchase storage they need today and add more as application requirements grow.
  • Snapshots: Enables creation of copies of data for backup, parallel processing, testing, and development, and have the copies available almost immediately (up to 512 snapshot targets per system).
  • Automatic load balancing: Provides automated I/O workload balancing of I/O traffic from the hosts across both controllers.
  • Data assurance: Ensures end-to-end data integrity in the storage system (from the host ports to the drives).
  • Dynamic volume and capacity expansion: Allows the capacity of a volume to be expanded by adding new physical drives or making use of unused space on existing drives.
  • Asynchronous mirroring: Provides storage system-based data replication between the storage systems containing primary (local) and secondary (remote) volumes by using asynchronous data transfers over iSCSI or Fibre Channel communication links at set intervals (both storage systems must have licenses for asynchronous mirroring).

The ThinkSystem DE4000F capabilities can be expanded with the optional synchronous mirroring licensed function. Synchronous mirroring provides storage system-based online, real-time data replication between the storage systems containing primary (local) and secondary (remote) volumes by using synchronous data transfers over Fibre Channel communication links (both storage systems must have licenses for synchronous mirroring).

Note: The synchronous and asynchronous mirroring features of the ThinkSystem DE4000F interoperate with other ThinkSystem DE Series storage arrays.

The following table lists the Feature on Demand (FoD) upgrades for the ThinkSystem DE4000F to enable optional software features. Each optional DE4000F function is licensed on a per-system basis and covers both controller enclosure and all attached expansion enclosures.

Software maintenance is included in the ThinkSystem DE4000F 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 services and upgrades for details).

Management

The ThinkSystem DE4000F supports the following management interfaces:

  • Lenovo System Manager, a web-based interface via HTTPS for single-system management, that runs on the storage system itself and 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.
  • Lenovo SAN Manager, a host-installed GUI-based application, for centralized management of multiple storage systems.
  • Command line interface (CLI) via SSH or through serial console.
  • Syslog, SNMP, and e-mail notifications.
  • Optional Lenovo XClarity for discovery, inventory, and monitoring.

Power supplies and cables

The ThinkSystem DE Series 2U24 SFF enclosures ship with two redundant hot-swap 913 W (100 - 240 V) Platinum AC power supplies, each with an IEC 320-C14 connector. The Relationship models of the ThinkSystem DE4000F 2U24 SFF and DE240S 2U24 SFF enclosures listed in Controller enclosures and Expansion enclosures ship with two 1.5 m, 10A/100-250V, C13 to IEC 320-C14 rack power cables.

Warranty services and upgrades

The ThinkSystem DE Series enclosures have a three-year Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) and onsite warranty with 9x5/next business day (NBD) terms.

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:

  • Warranty and maintenance service upgrades:
