IBM DS8800 - Data Sheet

The IBM DS8800 Enterprise Storage Array is designed to deliver exceptional performance while adding virtualization capabilities that can help customers more efficiently allocate system resources and
better control the application's quality of service. The IBM DS8800 Enterprise Storage Array also offers powerful data backup, remote mirroring and recovery functions that can help protect data from unforeseen events. Additionally, it is designed to support non-disruptive microcode changes. These functions are designed to help maintain data availability, which can benefit companies in markets where information must be accessible.

Visualization can offer great opportunities for customers to help lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) of their storage systems. Introducing a new level of virtualization with innovative storage system logical partitioning (LPAR), the IBM DS8800 Enterprise Storage Array offers the first use of the logical partitioning capability of the IBM Virtualization Engine of the POWER5 processor. The LPAR technology of this storage system is designed to allow the creation of two completely separate storage subsystems that can run the same or different versions of the microcode. Subsystems can be used for production, test, or other unique storage environments and operate within a single physical enclosure. Each storage partition can be tailored to support the specific performance requirements of a different, heterogeneous workload, and the IBM DS8800 Enterprise Storage Array system's implementation of hardware-based partitioning helps isolate and secure LPARS. These storage system LPAR features are designed to help simplify systems, maximizing management efficiency, cost savings, and flexibility.

The IBM DS8800 Enterprise Storage Array offers high-performance, high-capacity storage systems designed to deliver a generational leap in performance, scalability, resiliency and total value. Purpose-built for mission-critical workloads in midsize and large enterprises, the IBM DS8800 Enterprise Storage Array can help consolidate system storage, simplify storage management, and support system availability to meet enterprise needs. operating in an on-demand world
