    Product highlights

    IBM XIV Storage System is designed to be a scalable enterprise storage system based upon a grid array of hardware components.
    • IBM XIV Storage System series is an innovative, high-end, open disk system series designed to support business requirements for a highly available information infrastructure. XIV architecture is a grid of standard Intel and LinuxTM components connected in any-to-any topology. This architecture is designed to support enterprise-class reliability, performance, scalability, and energy efficiency.

    Core features

    Inherent to its design, XIV features:
    • Workload balancing - The workload is evenly distributed over all hardware components at all times. All disks and modules are used equally, regardless of access patterns. Pseudo-random distribution ensures consistent load-balancing even after adding, deleting, or resizing volumes, as well as adding or removing hardware. This balancing of all data on all system components eliminates the possibility of a hotspot being created.

    • True virtualization - Unlike other system architectures, storage virtualization is inherent to the basic principles of the XIV Storage System design. Physical drives and their locations are hidden from the user, which dramatically simplifies storage configuration. The automatic layout maximizes the system’s performance by using system resources for each volume, regardless of the user’s access patterns. With the XIV, you no longer decide or plan which type of data protection to use for storing data or plan how many drives you need to dedicate for a specific application. Just allocate the needed storage capacity and the system does the rest. Storage administrators can to respond to growing storage needs in minutes instead of hours or days with traditional storage systems.

    • Ease of management - Ease of management that goes below the surface, with a virtualized architecture, highly intuitive GUI, and clever implementation of role based management all add up to create a streamlined user experience with less administration.

    • Fast rebuild - The XIV rebuild times are extremely fast due to the fact that it keeps track of what blocks contain data and only rebuilds these blocks. This approach results in rebuild times of less than an hour for a 6 TB drive failure, when the XIV is 100% utilized.

    Storage efficiency

    The following XIV characteristics contribute to storage efficiency
    • Efficient capacity usage - Capacity utilization functionality, including space-reclamation for virtualized environments, space-efficient snapshots, and advanced thin provisioning, helps support savings in capacity and cost with less administration requirements.

    • High-density storage - Enterprise-class, high density SAS disk drives create increased physical space efficiencies. Using 6 TB drives, XIV Gen3 provides up to 485 TB usable capacity in a single rack. The ability to store so much data in one system using fewer, large capacity drives, as well as the use of multi-core processors, can help to reduce power and cooling expenses for a more energy efficient solution.

    Ready for the Cloud

    IBM XIV Cloud Storage for Service Providers, or client hosted cloud solutions require elastic, rapid response, and dynamic demand that is captured within XIV’s 485 TB linear scalability, and the immediate and automatic redistribution, without interruption, of added capacity. The grid design stripes data across all modules and disks, incorporating data redundancy for consistent and predictable I/O performance that is always load balanced.

    IBM XIV is prepared for the cloud with VMware and OpenStack.
    • IBM XIV and VMware vCloud Suite Integration. This functionality is available to all XIV releases through the IBM Storage Integration Server v1.5. It is free of charge and enables VMware APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA), VMware vSphere Web Client, vCenter Orchestrator (vCO), vCenter Operations Manager (vCOPs), and VMware vCloud Automation Center (vCAC). VMware Virtual Volumes (VVol) which is designed to enable upcoming VMware vSphere environments to easily automate XIV provisioning, offload snapshots and cloning, and instantly reclaim space. The IBM Storage Integration Server delivers a range of IBM storage integration services in cloud based architectures providing provisioning, automation, and monitoring, see the IBM Redpaper, IBM XIV Storage System in a VMware Environment, REDP-4965.

    • IBM XIV can automate storage discovery and provisioning in OpenStack environments using OpenStack Cinder integration, to manage the cloud in an easier way we recommend to deploy the IBM Cloud Manager, see the IBM Redpaper, Using the IBM XIV Storage System in OpenStack Cloud Environments, REDP-4971.

    • IBM XIV can automate custom storage operation using the XIV RESTful API, see the IBM Redpaper, RESTful API Support in XIV, REDP-5064.

    • IBM XIV multi-tenancy allows secure isolation into domains of XIV storage resources among numerous tenants, with the ability of setting different quality of service (QoS) levels per domain. It enables the division of storage system administration tasks into logical domains, using role-based permissions. It also enables rapid deployments while minimizing the need for extensive planning, tuning or field-upgrades.

    • IBM XIV scales cloud storage capacity and performance linearly and can manage up to 144 frames using IBM Hyper-Scale

    • The XIV Cloud Storage for Service Providers product further empowers users with the flexibility to combine a robust set of base functions with license-per-need features. The ability to pay for functionality when it is required enables cloud providers to tailor services to customer needs even more cost-effectively.

    Security and Encryption

    IBM XIV storage system addresses the data-at-rest encryption demands.
    • Self-encrypting drives - IBM XIV Gen3 Model 214 offers industry-standard data at rest encryption at no extra cost, while avoiding performance impact with self-encrypting drives (SED). IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (ISKLM) is used to manage the security keys. All SAS-SED drives can turn on encryption non-disruptively at any time. For details about encryption with XIV, see the IBM Redpaper, XIV Security with Data-at-Rest Encryption, REDP-5047.

    • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) - Security enhancements including auditing of user actions and user interface locking after a pre-defined period of idle time, allow XIV to meet requirements imposed by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS).


    The highly intuitive XIV GUI and built-in management tools make administrative tasks easy and efficient, with little training or expertise required, from provisioning volumes to monitoring multiple systems. Figure 2 on page 6 is an example of a System view with a module pullout in the XIV GUI.

    Figure 2 - XIV GUI System view
    • The IBM XIV Storage Management GUI acts as the management console for the storage system. A simple and intuitive GUI enables storage administrators to manage and monitor all system aspects easily, with almost no learning curve.

    • The XIV TOP application allows the user to view and monitor performance information for defined volumes and hosts in real time. It can be launched independently or from within the XIV GUI.

    • The XCLI is a comprehensive command-line interface that allows the user to configure and monitor the XIV Storage System. All the functions available in the XIV GUI are also available in the XCLI. It can be used in a shell environment for interactive commands or as part of a script to perform lengthy or complex tasks.

    • Performance statistics can be monitored through the XIV GUI and XCLI at any time. Monitoring through the XIV GUI is easily done by selecting specific filters. The XIV GUI will then display the requested data as shown in Figure 3.

    Figure 3 - Statistics monitor view in XIV GUI
    • The XIV Mobile Dashboard, supported on Apple iOS and Android smart phones and tablets and is available free of charge from the specific application store. The mobile dashboard gives the user another way to monitor performance and capacity as well as receiving alert notifications from the XIV Storage System. Figure 4 shows an example of the XIV Mobile Dashboard screen.

    Figure 4 - XIV Mobile Dashboard
    • SMI-S 1.6 latest protocol certification helps build dynamic, scalable, secure Microsoft-based cloud storage infrastructures with out-of-the box integration with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012.

    IBM Hyper-Scale

    IBM Hyper-Scale is a family of growing technologies around an innovative approach to storage scalability. IBM Hyper-Scale includes the following features:
    • Hyper-Scale Manager - reduces operational complexity and enhances capacity planning through integrated management for large and multi-site XIV deployments. It enables the XIV GUI to access and operate on multiple XIV systems concurrently. It also provides support for the RESTful application programming interface (API). The Hyper-Scale Manager runs on a single instance of a virtual machine server or on several servers. Figure 5 illustrates how the Hyper-Scale Manager allows a storage administrator to work with volumes from multiple systems, in this case to create cross systems snapshots.

    Figure 5 - Hyper-Scale Manager
    • Hyper-Scale Mobility - a powerful function that allows the user to move volumes between storage systems transparently, with no disruption to host applications. It is only available with Gen3 systems.

    • Hyper-Scale Consistency - Cross system consistency (or snapshot) groups enables a coordinated creation of snapshots for inter-dependent consistency groups on multiple systems. This feature is available only through the IBM Hyper-Scale Manager.

    Business Continuity

    The XIV Storage System provides a rich set of copy services functions suited for various data protection scenarios, and enables clients to enhance their business continuance and data migration capabilities.
    • Synchronous mirroring is a data replication solution to use between two storage systems and which achieves a recovery point objective (RPO) of zero with a distance of less than 100 km. In synchronous mirroring, a host write operation is completed on both the local and remote sites before an acknowledgement is returned to the host. Synchronous mirroring ensures local and remote always have the same copy of data for a zero RPO.

    • Asynchronous mirroring is designed for a non-zero RPO at greater distances. Consistent sets of data are copied to the remote location at predefined intervals while the host writes are acknowledged after they are written on the local site.

    • Three-site (or 3-way) mirroring is a star topology multi-target disaster recovery solution. It utilizes proven, efficient XIV technology with synchronous and asynchronous mirroring. This is only available with Gen3 systems.

    • XIV data migration is a seamless data transfer tool for migrating data from another source system by simulating host behavior. It synchronizes data between the two storage systems using transparent copying to the XIV Storage System as a background process. It requires only a short outage on the host side to switch LUN ownership to the XIV and begin the migration process.

    Scalability and Performance

    XIV Storage System is a scalable enterprise storage system based on a grid array of hardware components. The architecture offers the highest performance through maximized and balanced utilization of all disks, distributed cache implementation, and exceptional performance characteristics.
    • Massive parallelism - With the grid architecture, the system ensures full usage of all system components. All volumes are spread across all spindles in the system. The system harnesses all storage capacity and all internal bandwidth, and it takes advantage of all available processing power for host-initiated I/O activity and system-initiated activity, such as rebuild processes and snapshot generation.

    • Processing power - The XIV Storage System open architecture uses the latest processor technologies and is more scalable than solutions that are based on a closed architecture. The XIV Storage System avoids sacrificing the performance of one volume over another, and therefore requires little to no tuning.

    • Innovative cache memory- Up to 720 GB of total system cache with flexible and powerful cache implementation allows the XIV system to leverage large slots for reads and pre-fetched data while enabling it to manage a smaller slot size for improved cache management and better performance.

    • Flash Cache (optional)- For ultra-high performance needs, XIV Gen3 optionally offers up to 12 TB of management-free Flash Caching available to all system data. The flash caching option can be installed non-disruptively, and can provide up to a 90% reduction in I/O latency for random read workloads.Operating with advanced flash algorithms, the latest XIV Gen3 components help meet requirements for extremely high performance workloads.

    • Enhanced connectivity - IBM XIV Gen3 offers multiple active/active IO interfaces with improved host connectivity with up to twenty-four 8 Gb FC ports and up to twelve 10 Gb Ethernet ports or twenty-two 1 Gb Ethernet ports for connecting to iSCSI-attached hosts.

    Availability and serviceability

    The IBM XIV Storage System maximizes continuous operation and minimizes the performance degradation associated with none disruptive planned and unplanned events, while providing the capability to preserve the data in case of a disaster.
    • Self-healing and self-tuning - Disk failure is taken care of by an efficient rebuild process that brings the system back to full redundancy in minutes. In addition, the IBM XIV Storage System extends the self-healing concept, resuming redundancy even after failures in components other than disks, or upon changes in the hardware configuration, such as the addition of modules.

    • The rapid restoration of redundant data across all available drives and modules in the system during hardware failures, and the automatic redistribution of data across all newly installed hardware, are fundamental characteristics of the IBM XIV Storage System architecture.

    • IBM XIV Storage System dynamically maintains the pseudo-random distribution of data across all modules and disks while ensuring that two copies of data exist at all times when the system reports Full Redundancy. When a disk drive or a module fails, the XIV data distribution algorithms automatically identify the non-redundant partitions and then begins to makes copies of just those non-redundant partitions and places this data in reserved areas of the disk drives that exist for just this circumstance.

    • Non-Disruptive Code Load (NDCL) enables upgrades to the XIV Storage System software from a current version to a later version without disrupting the application service.

    • The provision within the XIV Storage System to efficiently and flexibly create snapshots, coupled with the ability to define consistency groups of volumes, constitutes integral elements of the data preservation strategy. In addition, the XIV Storage System data mirroring functionality facilitates excellent potential recovery point and recovery time objectives as a central element of the full disaster recovery plan.

    Architecture and key components

    The XIV Storage System is comprised of various physical components...
    • IBM XIV storage system is delivered in a standard IBM T42 rack, fully cabled for 15 modules, even if a partially populated rack is ordered.

    • The hardware of the Interface Modules [1] and Data Modules [2] in the IBM XIV Storage SystemGen3 is based on an Intel server platform optimized for data storage.

    • A patch panel [3] at the rear of the rack is used for connecting the XIV Storage System to the customer’s network. The Fibre Channel ports on the Interface Modules are connected to the patch panel using 50-micron cables. All external connections must be made through the patch panel. In addition to the host connections and to the network connections, more ports are available on the patch panel for service connections.[4]

    • An Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) [5] allows the XIV Storage System to attach to two independent power sources, to protect against loss of customer utility power. If there is an external power failure, the ATS automatically transfers the load to the redundant power supply.

    • The XIV Storage System has three internal Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) [6], these are used as cache batteries, so the data in cache always will be written down to disk, incase of a power outage. Two of these UPSs is enough to maintain cache battery power availability. This redundant design is n+1, because the XIV Storage System has one redundant UPS. The UPS complex has enough battery reserves to sustain two emergency power shutdowns.

    • The 1U Maintenance Module [7] and the modem, which are installed in the middle of the rack, are used for XIV Storage System support and for the IBM personnel to maintain and repair the system. This device is only used to gain remote access to the XIV System through the modem for support personnel.

    • The XIV Storage System utilizes redundant Infiniband switches [8] for communications between the interface and data modules. Each InfiniBand switch contains 36 ports that have 40-Gbps full bidirectional bandwidth per port. The switches are powered by redundant power supplies and fan modules to eliminate any single point of failure.

    Figure 6 illustrates the physical components described above.
