XIV Storage System enhancements provide increased performance/efficiency in VMware environments. New features ensure critical applications have the highest priority to help maintain quality of service. Enhancements also include the ability to setup remote mirroring without time, cost, or performance impact of sending data online.
Optimize the efficiency of active data with an innovative solution for Network Attached Storage (NAS) and reduce storage requirements up to 80% without performance degradation. Compressing primary data can optimize data protection and retention processes by reducing workload and improving throughput.
Featuring an 8 GB Fibre Channel PCI adapter (HBA), the N6000 offers more processing power, more memory, and higher capacity systems to address fast-growing file storage needs. These storage systems consolidate block and file-based storage into a single platform, while maintaining performance, availability, scalability and efficiency.
The new DS3500 DC powered models enable efficiency by generating savings in energy costs. Available in enclosures of 24 drives, the DS3500 meets the standard 48V DC requirements for telecommunications and related industries. Also, NEBS (Network Equipment Building System) certification is available for DS3500 AC and DC models. Together, these enhancements provide to your organization savings in energy expenses, meet telecommunications and federal standards, and assurance of resiliency in the most intense and harsh environments.
A simple and flexible archiving solution that enables customers to more efficiently search their archived information with the index and search capability.
Leverage advanced technologies to off-load the backup process from virtual machines for improved backup frequency (RPO) and faster, more flexible recovery (RTO). TSM for VE is integrated with Tivoli Storage Manager and can perform near-instant file-level, volume-level or image-level recovery from a single-pass VM image backup.
