The S3200 offers the flexible choice of storage connectivity protocols: 6/12 Gb SAS, 1 Gb or 10 Gb iSCSI, and 4/8/16 Gb Fibre Channel (FC). Converged Network Controller (CNC) design of the S3200 makes the selection of iSCSI or FC host connectivity (or both FC and iSCSI) as simple as attaching corresponding transceivers or 10 GbE SFP+ Direct-Attach Copper (DAC) cables to the SFP/SFP+ ports on the RAID controller.

The S3200 supports up to 192 drives with up to seven external expansion enclosures, and it offers flexible drive configurations with the choice of 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drive form factors, 10K or 15K rpm SAS and 7.2K rpm NL SAS hard disk drives (HDDs) and self-encrypting drives (SEDs), and SAS solid-state drives (SSDs). The S3200 can be scaled up to 960 TB of raw storage capacity.

Did you know?

The S3200 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 S3200 supports hybrid tiering across HDDs and SSDs.

With flexibility of the Converged Network Controllers, the S3200 supports hybrid iSCSI and Fibre Channel connectivity at the same time.

The S3200 supports battery-free cache protection which reduces maintenance costs and provides permanent backup of unwritten cache data in case of power failure.

  • Optional licensed functions, including higher number of snapshots for more scalability, real-time SSD tiering for boosting IOPS performance, and asynchronous replication for 24x7 data protection and disaster recovery.
  • Intuitive, web-based GUI for easy system setup and management.
  • Designed to comply with NEBS and MIL-STD requirements.
  • Designed for 99.999% availability.

The S3200 is designed to support the complete range of data storage requirements, from highly utilized applications to high-capacity, low usage applications.

The following 3.5-inch drives are supported:

  • High performance solid-state drives (10 drive writes per day [DWD]): 400 GB
  • Performance-optimized, enterprise class disk drives: 600 GB and 900 GB 10K rpm
  • High-capacity, archival-class nearline disk drives: 2 TB, 4 TB, 6 TB, 8 TB, and 10 TB 7.2K rpm

The following 2.5-inch drives are supported:

  • High performance solid-state drives (3 DWD and 10 DWD): 400 GB, 800 GB, and 1.6 TB
  • High performance self-encrypting solid-state drives (10 DWD): 400 GB and 800 GB
  • Capacity-optimized solid-state drives (1 DWD): 3.84 TB
  • Performance-optimized, enterprise class disk drives
    • 300 GB and 600 GB 15K rpm
    • 600 GB, 900 GB, 1.2 TB, and 1.8 TB 10K rpm
  • High-capacity, archival-class nearline disk drives: 1 TB and 2 TB 7.2K rpm

Additional drives and expansion units are designed to be dynamically added with virtually no downtime, helping to quickly and seamlessly respond to ever-growing capacity demands.

The S3200 storage system is designed to offer high levels of system and data availability with the following technologies:

  • Dual-active RAID controllers with low latency cache mirroring
  • Dual-port drives (both HDDs and SSDs) with automatic drive failure detection and rapid RAID rebuild with global hot spares
  • Redundant hardware, including host ports, controller modules, and power supplies and fans
  • Hot-swappable and customer replaceable components, including controllers, power supplies with fans, and drives
  • Automated path failover support for the data path between the host and the drives with multipathing software
  • Non-disruptive controller firmware upgrades for dual controller configurations with multipathing

The following functions are included with every S3200:

  • 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 S3200 automatically and dynamically moves frequently accessed data to higher performing HDDs in the system without manually creating and managing storage tier policies.
  • 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 S3200 storage capabilities can be expanded with optional licensed functions. Each optional S3200 function is licensed on a per-system basis and covers both controller enclosure and all attached expansion units.

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 1,024 per system.
  • Asynchronous Replication: The asynchronous replication feature provides storage system-based data replication between two peers by using asynchronous data transfers over IP 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, S3200 asynchronous replication interoperates with Lenovo Storage S2200 and ThinkSystem DS Series.

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

The S3200 supports the following management interfaces:

  • Web-based graphical user interface (GUI) 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
  • HTTP scripting interface with XML encoding
  • SNMP and e-mail notifications

RAID controller modules

The S3200 supports single and dual controller configurations. Standard models of the S3200 ship with two RAID controller modules (see Table 2). Custom models of the S3200 can be configured with one or two RAID controllers. Single-controller models can be upgraded to dual-controller models non-disruptively.

There are two types of RAID controller modules available:

  • S3200 SAS RAID Controllers
  • S3200 FC and iSCSI RAID Controllers

S3200 SAS RAID Controllers provide direct SAS attachment for up to four hosts with a supported SAS HBA installed in the host. Each S3200 SAS Controller has four 6/12 Gb SAS ports with Mini-SAS HD (SFF-8644) connectors.

S3200 FC and iSCSI RAID Controllers provide SAN based iSCSI or Fibre Channel connectivity to the hosts with a supported software initiator or HBA installed. Each S3200 FC and iSCSI Controller has two built-in CNCs that have two SFP/SFP+ ports each for a total of four SFP/SFP+ ports per RAID controller. Ports on the CNC must have the same connectivity type, and different CNCs might have different connectivity types.

The Converged Network Controller supports the following storage connectivity protocols depending on the SFP/SFP+ transceivers installed:

  • 1 Gb iSCSI with 1 GbE RJ-45 SFP optical modules
  • 1/10 Gb iSCSI with 10 GbE SW SFP+ optical modules with LC connectors
  • 10 Gb iSCSI with 10 GbE SFP+ DAC cables
  • 4/8 Gb Fibre Channel with 8 Gb FC SW SFP+ optical modules with LC connectors
  • 4/8/16 Gb Gb Fibre Channel with 16 Gb FC SW SFP+ optical modules with LC connectors

Notes:

  • Both ports on the same CNC on the S3200 FC and iSCSI RAID Controller must have the same connectivity type (the same type of SFP/SFP+ modules or DAC cables).
  • Hybrid iSCSI and FC connectivity or 1 Gb and 10 Gb iSCSI connectivity is supported on a per CNC basis; that is, each of two CNCs on the RAID controller is configured with the different types of transceivers.
  • For dual-controller configurations, both RAID controllers in the system must be of the same type, and they must have matching port configurations (i.e. the matching ports on both RAID controllers must have SFP/SFP+ modules of the same type).

Both SAS controllers and FC and iSCSI controllers have one 6 Gb SAS x4 expansion port (Mini-SAS SFF-8088 connector) for the attachment of the E1012 and E1024 expansion enclosures.

The following table lists ordering information for the RAID controllers and related connectivity options.
