IBM System Storage DS5000 series
Workload optimized storage for today’s demanding applications


Balanced performance - up to 700,000 IOPs and 6400 Mbps - is well-suited for virtualization and consolidation Scalable up to 448 drives using the EXP5000 enclosure and up to 960 TB of high-density storage with the EXP5060 enclosure Support for intermixing drive types—FC, FC-SAS, SED, SATA and SSD—and host interfaces—Fibre Channel and iSCSI—for investment protection and cost-effective tiered storage Central management of all IBM System Storage DS series products while maximizing utilization and lowering costs Designed to support high availability with hot-swappable components and non-disruptive firmware upgrades Supports IBM AIX and Power Systems T10-PI Data Integrity Initiative

The IBM® System Storage® DS5000 series is designed to meet today’s and tomorrow’s demanding open-systems requirements while establishing a new standard for life cycle longevity. Building on many decades of design expertise, the DS5000 storage system’s architecture delivers industry-leading performance, real reliability, multidimensional scalability and unprecedented investment protection. The DS5000 storage systems are equally adept at supporting transactional applications such as databases and On Line Transaction Processing OLTP, throughput-intensive applications such as high-performance computing (HPC) and rich media, and concurrent workloads for consolidation and virtualization. With relentless performance and superior reliability and availability, DS5000 series storage systems can support the most demanding service level agreements (SLAs) for the most common operating systems, including Microsoft® Windows®, UNIX® and Linux®. And when requirements change, you can add or replace host interfaces, grow capacity, add cache and reconfigure the system on the fly—ensuring that it will keep pace with your growing company. This multidimensional scalability allows a DS5000 series storage system to extend beyond the normal three- to four-year life cycle, protecting your storage investment by delaying (or even eliminating) the expense of migrating data to a new system and allowing you to amortize acquisition costs over extended periods of time. This life-cycle longevity enables

With drive-level encryption DS5000 series systems support affordable data security with no performance penalty. increase performance. FC-SAS or SATA disk drives that are intermixable in the same enclosure – Optional Fibre Channel Self-Encrypting Drives (SED) An Environmental Service Module (ESM)-embedded “loop switch” Redundant 4 Gbps Fibre Channel drive loops to ensure complete accessibility to all drives in the event of a loop or cable failure Redundant power supplies. And the DS5000 storage system’s multiple replication options. all of which can be housed in a single 2101-200 rack system. grow capacity and add cache to deliver unprecedented life cycle longevity and investment protection as your business grows. removed or replaced.” the enclosure is designed to optimize performance.IBM Systems and Technology Data Sheet IBM System Storage DS5000 storage systems to continue delivering value long after other systems have been retired. A DS5100 or DS5300 controller attached to eight EXP5060 disk enclosures provides up to 960 TB of physical storage. The EXP5060 enclosure can be populated with 1 or 2 TB SATA DDMs using the 2 .

This reduces the number of drives needed to meet performance and capacity demands—supporting IBM’s commitment to green technologies. Address a wide range of storage needs IBM DS Storage Manager software provides unparalleled configuration flexibility to ensure that your DS5000 series storage system is configured to meet your application’s logical unit number (LUN) requirements. Efficient storage utilization lowers raw capacity requirements and supports intermixing high-performance and high-capacity drives to enable tiered storage. reconfiguration and maintenance capabilities. DS5000 series systems are designed to meet the most demanding application and growth requirements. improving customer satisfaction and meeting SLAs. DS Storage Manager software offers centralized administration of all DS Storage Manager-based systems. And with linear scalability. helping to ensure that your data is available virtually 24x7x365. Support for intermixing high-performance and high-capacity 3 . providing a common interface across all products and platforms. more responsive applications—increasing productivity.IBM Systems and Technology Data Sheet IBM System Storage Relentless performance DS5000 storage systems deliver unprecedented performance in a family of industry-leading technology. RAID 6 technology guards against concurrent drive failures and errors. Proactive Drive Health Monitoring (PDHM) technology identifies faulty drives before they create problems. and extensive online configuration. automated input/output I/O path failover. DS5000 series storage systems offer redundant components. while maximizing performance efficiency. drives creates tiered storage in a single system. And the balanced performance offered by the DS5000 storage system excels at both IOPS and MB/sec. Efficiencies to cut purchase and operational IT costs DS5000 storage systems offer a modular design. the DS5000 storage system’s exceptional per-drive performance creates value by getting the most performance out of the fewest drives. The unparalleled configuration flexibility of DS Storage Manager software creates superior utilization—getting the most usable capacity out of the purchased capacity. DS5000 storage systems are designed to help protect stored data as well: ● ● ● ● ● DACstore technology stores configuration metadata on each drive. DACstore technology allows drives to be relocated with data intact as requirements change. DS Storage Manager software also offers a unique blend of robust functionality with intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) and wizards to ensure that storage is easily and optimally configured. Full disk encryption ensures that data is protected throughout the drive’s life cycle. giving you an affordable entry point with seamless “pay-as-you-grow” scalability as your requirements change. Like all IBM storage systems. Persistent cache backup ensures that data in the cache is captured and safe in the event of a power outage. companies must be able to efficiently manage their storage while minimizing total cost of ownership (TCO). This extensive flexibility makes DS5000 storage systems a great choice for storage consolidation implementations where an individual storage system supports concurrent and diverse workloads and application requirements. Maximize utilization and minimize TCO Trusted storage to protect and deliver your data Built with a goal of the highest reliability and availability. With seventhgeneration architecture the systems are optimized to power faster. As data continues to grow.
