Which connection protocol is required?
A customer’s fibre-channel attached storage is approaching end-of-lease and will be returned. The customer is also evaluating IBM Storwize solutions. It is important during the transition period that data are available, that interruption is minimized, and that costs are kept low.
Which IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Storwize topic should be discussed with the customer?
A technical specialist is conducting a disk technology briefing to position the IBM FlashSystem V9000 against flash drives in an IBM Storwize V7000. The customer asks, “Why is SSD latency greater than a flash module?”
How should the technical specialist respond to the customer?
A customer wants to know the advantage of DRAID over traditional RAID
What should the technical specialist explain?
A customer needs to replicate to a back-up site using IP replication on an IBM Storwize V7000. The customer also requires improved bandwidth utilization over long distance links with high latency.
What is included in the IBM Storwize V7000 native IP replication implementation that accomplishes this requirement?
A customer using IBM Spectrum Virtualize on a single I/O group wants to maintain continuous access to data in the event of an MDisk failure.
Which license is required?
A customer is considering both an IBM VersaStack converged and a competitor’s hyper-converged systems for a new system running mixed workloads including virtual machines and database servers.
What should the technical specialist highlight to the customer?
A customer with competitive storage at two locations uses asynchronous replication for DR. The storage at the primary location has reached end-of-life.
How could the IBM Storwize Family solve the problem?
Which tool is used to calculate usable storage space for IBM Storwize disk subsystems?
A customer has two IBM Storwize V5010 systems installed at two locations and is considering IP data replication between the two sites. The IP link between locations is a shared resource and is not scalable.
