IBM TS7760 R4.2 Cloud Storage Tier Guide

release date: Jun 07, 2019
IBM TS7760 R4.2 Cloud Storage Tier Guide
Building on over 20 years of virtual tape experience, the TS7760 now supports the ability to store virtual tape volumes in an object store. This IBM Redpaper publication helps you set up and configure the new cloud object storage support for IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS) or Amazon Web Services (AWS). The TS7700 supported off loading to physical tape for over two decades. Off loading to physical tape behind a TS7700 is used by hundreds of organizations around the world. By using the same hierarchical storage techniques, the TS7700 can also off load to object storage. Because object storage is cloud-based and accessible from different regions, the TS7760 Cloud Storage Tier support essentially allows the cloud to be an extension of the grid. In this IBM Redpaper publication, we provide a brief overview of cloud technology with an emphasis on Object Storage. Object Storage is used by a broad set of technologies, including those technologies that are exclusive to IBM Z®. The aim of this publication is to provide a basic understanding of cloud, Object Storage, and different ways it can be integrated into your environment. This Redpaper is intended for system architects and storage administrators with TS7700 experience who want to add the support of a Cloud Storage Tier to their TS7700 solution.

IBM TS7700 Release 4.2 Guide

release date: Apr 19, 2019
IBM TS7700 Release 4.2 Guide
This IBM® Redbooks® publication covers IBM TS7700 R4.2. The IBM TS7700 is part of a family of IBM Enterprise tape products. This book is intended for system architects and storage administrators who want to integrate their storage systems for optimal operation. Building on over 20 years of virtual tape experience, the TS7760 now supports the ability to store virtual tape volumes in an object store. The TS7700 has supported off loading to physical tape for over two decades. Off loading to physical tape behind a TS7700 is utilized by hundreds of organizations around the world. Using the same hierarchical storage techniques, the TS7700 can also off load to object storage. Given object storage is cloud based and accessible from different regions, the TS7760 Cloud Storage Tier support essentially allows the cloud to be an extension of the grid. As of the release of this document, the TS7760C supports the ability to off load to IBM Cloud Object Storage as well as Amazon S3. To learn about the TS7760 cloud storage tier function, planning, implementation, best practices, and support see IBM Redpaper IBM TS7760 R4.2 Cloud Storage Tier Guide, redp-5514 at: http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/redp5514.html The IBM TS7700 offers a modular, scalable, and high-performance architecture for mainframe tape virtualization for the IBM Z® environment. It is a fully integrated, tiered storage hierarchy of disk and tape. This storage hierarchy is managed by robust storage management microcode with extensive self-management capability. It includes the following advanced functions: Improved reliability and resiliency Reduction in the time that is needed for the backup and restore process Reduction of services downtime that is caused by physical tape drive and library outages Reduction in cost, time, and complexity by moving primary workloads to virtual tape More efficient procedures for managing daily backup and restore processing Infrastructure simplification through reduction of the number of physical tape libraries, drives, and media TS7700 delivers the following new capabilities: TS7760C supports the ability to off load to IBM Cloud Object Storage as well as Amazon S3 8-way Grid Cloud consisting of any generation of TS7700 Synchronous and asynchronous replication Tight integration with IBM Z and DFSMS policy management Optional Transparent Cloud Tiering Optional integration with physical tape Cumulative 16Gb FICON throughput up to 4.8GB/s 8 IBM Z hosts view up to 496 8 equivalent devices Grid access to all data independent of where it exists The TS7760T writes data by policy to physical tape through attachment to high-capacity, high-performance IBM TS1150 and IBM TS1140 tape drives installed in an IBM TS4500 or TS3500 tape library. The TS7760 models are based on high-performance and redundant IBM POWER8® technology. They provide improved performance for most IBM Z tape workloads when compared to the previous generations of IBM TS7700.

IBM TS7700 Release 3.3

release date: Apr 11, 2017
IBM TS7700 Release 3.3
Note: The IBM TS7700 Release 4.0 Guide, SG24-8366 is available at: http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg248366.html IBM® TS7700 is a family of mainframe virtual tape solutions that optimize data protection and business continuance for IBM z SystemsTM data. Through the use of virtualization and disk cache, the TS7700 family operates at disk speeds while maintaining compatibility with existing tape operations. Its fully integrated tiered storage hierarchy takes advantage of both disk and tape technologies to deliver performance for active data and best economics for inactive and archive data. This IBM Redbooks® publication describes the TS7700 R3.3 architecture, planning, migration, implementation, and operations. The latest TS7700 family of z Systems tape virtualization is offered as two models: IBM TS7720 features encryption-capable high-capacity cache that uses 3 TB SAS disk drives with RAID 6, which can scale to large capacities with the highest level of data protection. IBM TS7740 features encryption-capable 600 GB SAS drives with RAID 6 protection. Both models write data by policy to physical tape through attachment to high-capacity, high-performance IBM TS1150 and earlier IBM 3592 model tape drives that are installed in IBM TS3500 tape libraries. Physical tape support is optional on TS7720. TS7700 R3.3 also supports external key management for disk-based encryption by using IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager. This book intended for system architects who want to integrate their storage systems for smoother operation.

IBM TS7700 Release 4.0 Guide

release date: Apr 11, 2017
IBM TS7700 Release 4.0 Guide
This IBM® Redbooks® publication highlights IBM TS7700 Release 4.0. The IBM TS7700 is part of a family of IBM Enterprise tape products. This book is intended for system architects and storage administrators who want to integrate their storage systems for optimal operation. The IBM TS7700 offers a modular, scalable, and high-performance architecture for mainframe tape virtualization for the IBM zTM Systems environment. It is a fully integrated, tiered storage hierarchy of disk and tape. This storage hierarchy is managed by robust storage management microcode with extensive self-management capability. It includes the following advanced functions: Policy management to control physical volume pooling Cache management Redundant copies, including across a grid network Copy mode control The IBM TS7700 offers enhanced statistical reporting. It also includes a standards-based Management Interface (MI) for IBM TS7700 management. IBM TS7700 R4.0 continues the next generation of IBM TS7700 for z Systems® tape: The IBM TS7760 is an all new hardware refresh and features Encryption Capable, high-capacity cache that uses 4 TB serial-attached Small Computer System Interface (SAS) HDDs in arrays that use dynamic disk pool configuration. This setup can scale to large capacities with the highest level of data protection. Release 4.0 introduces the option to attach to a TS4500 tape library, and to the previous TS3500 tape library, which contains back-end physical tape drives and policies to manage up to eight of the disk repositories in a tape-attached TS7760T. This TS7760T (Tape Attached) configuration mimics the behavior of a TS7740, with additional features that go beyond what a TS7740 can provide. The TS7760T writes data by policy to physical tape through attachment to high-capacity, high-performance IBM TS1150 and IBM TS1140 tape drives installed in an IBM TS4500 or TS3500 tape library. The TS7760 models are based on high-performance and redundant IBM POWER8® technology. They provide improved performance for most z Systems tape workloads when compared to the previous generations of IBM TS7700.
