Introduction

IBM® FlashSystem™ 720 and IBM FlashSystem 820 storage systems deliver high performance, efficiency, and reliability for shared enterprise storage environments, helping clients around the world address performance issues with their most important applications and infrastructure. These storage systems can either complement or replace traditional hard drive arrays in many applications, including online transaction processing (OLTP), business intelligence (BI), online analytical processing (OLAP), virtual desktop infrastructures, high-performance computing, and content delivery solutions (such as cloud storage and video on demand).

As standard shared primary data storage devices, FlashSystem 720 and FlashSystem 820 storage systems deliver performance beyond that of most traditional arrays, even those that incorporate SSDs or other flash technology. These storage systems can also be used as the top tier of storage alongside traditional arrays in tiered storage architectures such as the IBM Easy Tier® functionality available in IBM System Storage® SAN Volume Controller or IBM Storwize® V7000 storage virtualization platforms.

Based on single level cell (SLC) flash, FlashSystem 720 is targeted to write-heavy enterprise workloads; enterprise multi level cell (eMLC) flash-based FlashSystem 820 is targeted to read-heavy workloads, where workload is distributed across multiple servers.

Figure 1 shows FlashSystem 720 and FlashSystem 820.

Table 2. Models

DescriptionMachine type-model
IBM FlashSystem 7209831-AS2
IBM FlashSystem 8209831-AE2

The FlashSystem 720 and FlashSystem 820 storage systems are shipped with the following items:
  • Statement of Limited Warranty
  • Quick start guide
  • Documentation CD containing Installation and User's Guide
  • Rail kit
  • Two IEC 320-C13 to C14 rack PDU power cords

The FlashSystem 720 and FlashSystem 820 storage systems require interface and flash modules to be ordered with the base model. See "Interface modules" and "Flash modules" sections for details.

Interface modules

FlashSystem 720 and FlashSystem 820 support either 8 Gb Fibre Channel (FC) or 40 Gbps InfiniBand connectivity with the interface modules shown in Table 3 (only one feature can be selected).

Table 3. Supported interface modules

DescriptionFeature codeMaximum quantity supported
8 Gb FC 4 Port Ext IntAF041
IB QDR 4 Port Ext IntAF051

Each interface module feature code contains two dual-port cards (either 8 Gb Fibre Channel or QDR InfiniBand) for a total of four ports in the system. FC interface modules come standard with four (one per each port) 8 Gb FC shortwave SFP+ transceivers with LC duplex connector. InfiniBand interface modules have QSFP receptacles.

FC interfaces support Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) only, with point-to-point (FC-P2P), arbitrated loop (FC-AL), and switched fabric (FC-SW) topologies. FC interfaces can be configured as N_port or NL_port types. InfiniBand interfaces support SCSI RDMA Protocol (SRP) only. Dual-port interface modules support full active-active load balancing and failover multi-pathing, though host software support for this function can vary.

Flash modules

FlashSystem 720 and FlashSystem 820 provide configurable capacity and optional RAID 5 Protection feature with the flash modules listed in Table 4.

Table 4. Supported flash modules

DescriptionFeature codeMaximum quantity supported
SLC flash module packs (for FlashSystem 720, only one pack can be ordered)
6TB SLC RAID 0 (12-pack)AF021
12TB SLC RAID 0 (12-pack)AF031
Base eMLC flash module packs (for FlashSystem 820, only one pack can be ordered)
12TB eMLC RAID 0 (12-pack)AF0E1
24TB eMLC RAID 0 (12-pack)AF0F1
RAID 5 protection (optional, pre-selected)
RAID 5 ProtectionAF0K1

FlashSystem 720 flash modules use 32 nm SLC flash chips, nominally rated for 100,000 program/erase (P/E) cycles, and FlashSystem 820 flash modules use 32 nm eMLC flash chips, nominally rated for 30,000 P/E cycles.

FlashSystem 720 single-density flash module has a raw capacity of approximately 680 GB, and a usable capacity of approximately 500 GB after overprovisioning and Variable Stripe RAID overhead. FlashSystem 720 double-density flash module has a raw capacity of approximately 1.36 TB, and a usable capacity of approximately 1 TB after overprovisioning and Variable Stripe RAID overhead.

FlashSystem 820 single-density flash module has a raw capacity of approximately 1.36 TB, and a usable capacity of approximately 1 TB after overprovisioning and Variable Stripe RAID overhead. FlashSystem 820 double-density flash module has a raw capacity of approximately 2.72 TB, and a usable capacity of approximately 2 TB after overprovisioning and Variable Stripe RAID overhead.

Important: Flash module types cannot be mixed within a system.

The following flash module protection technologies are supported:
  • Module-level Variable Stripe RAID
  • Error correcting codes (ECC) to provide reconstruction of data from flash chips
  • Checksums and data integrity fields protecting all internal data transfers within the system
  • Overprovisioning to enhance write endurance and decrease write amplification
  • Wear leveling algorithms that balance the number of writes among flash chips throughout the system
  • Sweeper algorithms that ensure all data within the system is read periodically to avoid data fade issues
  • Optional RAID 5 Protection feature with hot spare flash module to automatically rebuild data from the failing or failed module to restore a fully redundant state

In addition, FlashSystem 720 and FlashSystem 820 include three N+1 redundant batteries that are used to destage lookup tables and data from RAM buffers to the flash storage in case of power failure.

Three modes of operation are supported by the systems:
  • RAID 0
  • JBOF (just a bunch of flash)
  • RAID 5 with hot spare (optional)

Definition: A combination of module-level Variable Stripe RAID and RAID 5 with hot spare across flash modules is called two-dimensional (2D) Flash RAID.

In a RAID 0 mode, data is striped across all available flash modules in a traditional RAID 0 layout (stripe size 4 KB).

JBOF mode allows each flash module to be treated separately without striping data across the modules. In JBOF mode, each flash module corresponds to a single logical volume.

In a RAID 5 mode, data is striped across 11 flash modules, with rotating parity protection in a 10+1 RAID 5 layout (stripe size 4 KB). In this mode, one module is reserved as a hot spare. Capacity available for user data is equivalent to the sum of usable capacities for 10 flash modules.

In a RAID 0 or RAID mode, yp to 1024 logical volumes (sometimes referred to as LUNs) can be created in the system, with a minimum size of 1 GB and a maximum size of the full available system capacity.

Unlike RAID 0 and JBOF mode, RAID 5 protection feature provides complete redundancy for the flash modules to avoid data loss in case of flash module failure. With RAID 5 feature activated, FlashSystem 720 and FlashSystem 820 offer full high availability and protection for mission critical data, without single point of failure.

Under the direction of the management module, the systems can coordinate data transfer between modules; for example, to rebuild a system-level RAID-5 data layout in case of a flash module failure, if RAID 5 Protection feature is activated.

Important: In RAID 0 or JBOF mode, failures of a single flash module containing data will most likely compromise system data integrity for logical volumes stored on those flash modules. If RAID 0 or JBOF mode is used, data must be replicated independently of FlashSystem 720 and FlashSystem 820 storage systems for protection against complete flash module failures.

IBM Global Financing

IBM Global Financing can help you obtain the IT solution you need while preserving funding for other strategic investments and optimizing cash flow. Our Fair Market Value (FMV) lease helps ensure that you have the latest IBM technology, and with our mid-lease upgrade capability, you can increase the capacity of the system with little to no change in monthly payments. At the end of the lease, take advantage of our flexible end-of-lease options to fit your changing business needs. IBM Global Financing has the breadth and depth of offerings, longevity, proven success, and global reach to help you develop a robust financing and asset management strategy that provides you the opportunity to use new technologies and turn your ambitious vision into a tangible solution.

Here are some other reasons why working with IBM makes solid financial sense:

  • Expand your purchasing power: Affordable monthly payments allow you to change the technology acquisition discussion from “what can I afford now” to “what solution is really right for my business.” IBM Global Financing allows you to expand your purchasing power to get you the right solution.
  • Accelerate your project’s cash flow break-even point: Acquire your IBM technology today and begin to realize its benefits now. An FMV lease can help you get the solution you need now, with low monthly payments that better align up-front costs with the anticipated return on investment (ROI) from the technology.
  • Easy to acquire with affordable rates: We offer one-stop shopping for a total IT solution, so you can acquire IBM hardware, software, services and the financing you need from one IT provider.

Plus, we provide simple, easy-to-understand contracts and quick approvals. As the world’s largest IT financing provider, with an asset base of US$35.8 billion and over 125,000 customers, IBM Global Financing offers highly competitive rates that promote low total cost of ownership (TCO) and low monthly payments.

IBM Global Financing operates in more than 50 countries. Go to http://ibm.com/financing for financing options in your country and to contact a local financing specialist.

IBM Global Financing offerings are provided through IBM Credit LLC in the United States and other IBM subsidiaries and divisions worldwide to qualified commercial and government clients. Rates and availability subject to client’s credit rating, financing terms, offering type, equipment and product type and options, and might vary by country. Non-hardware items must be one-time, nonrecurring charges and are financed by means of loans. Other restrictions might apply.
