Full Disk Encryption is Now Standard


FDE options across all drive tiers


Same performance as standard drives


Standards
-
based key management software supports key
management interoperability protocol (KMIP)


Key manager supports both disk and tape


New European Union Privacy Directive makes breaches very
costly


Encryption is the least expensive data disposal technique


Supports Easy Tier environments


Over a thousand IBM encryption disk and tape solutions
deployed worldwide

“Within five years, all HDDs and SSDs will be shipped preloaded with some kind
of industry
-
standard FDE technology”


Gartner Hype Cycle for Storage, July
2012

“Do not wait for an event
-
driven
reaction to secure your data.
Proactively securing your data will help
ensure against a worst
-
case scenario
and a financial impact that is likely to
far surpass that of the data security
purchase itself.”

John Monroe

New VMware Support


VMware vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) includes 3
“primitives” for offloading virtual machine and storage management
operations to storage systems that support them


Atomic Test and Set (ATS
) enables hardware
-
assisted locking of files


Full Copy

-

enables the storage array to make full copies of data within the array


Block Zeroing

enables the array to zero out large numbers of blocks



ATS and Full Copy support are available with this DS8870 release;
Block Zeroing support is planned for 2013

Storwize V7000 remote replication delivers very high data currency at remote site but requires network
bandwidth to support this currency


Global
Mirror
makes
regular copies of data at primary location and transmits them to secondary location


User can select frequency of these copies, which determines network bandwidth required and data
currency


Provides much more flexibility to meet specific application currency and network cost
requirements

Real Time Compression
Architecture for SVC
/ Storwize V7000





RTC Technology is
embedded into
the SVC / V
7000
Code
to provide the same compression capabilities
for B
lock Storage

Why it Matters



Growing customer data demands more disk space and
drives up the cost of storage in the data center



The
RTC
engine, which can achieve upwards of 50 per
cent or better compression allows customers to reduce
the amount of disk required for their data

Actual host data
written to disk drives

(without compression)
