The combination enables the continuous operations, self-managing policy-driven management, and agile IT demanded by new breed of cloud applications. Note RAID 6 contains two configurations: The host attachment guide provides information and instructions to configure the storage system and data storage devices for attachment to the open-systems hosts. Integrated active mirroring enables volume extensibility between systems and across sites through the provisioning and management of active-active volumes up to km apart. Refer to the following documents for information and instructions about configuring your storage system for open-systems operations: Note The storage system queue depth and other parameters are adjustable.

This section provides high-level descriptions of mainframe compatibility, support, and configurations. Hitachk supported LDEV striping configurations are: Each chunk contains either eight logical tracks mainframe or logical blocks open.

Hardware architecture

All drives and device emulation types are supported for LDEV striping. The data is written across the eight drives in a stripe that has six data chunks and two parity chunks. The host groups, host modes, and host mode options are configured by using Device Manager – Storage Navigator. The data is distributed and arranged in 16 drives or 32 drives. The advantages of LDEV striping are:.

Data and parity are striped across each drive in the array group. The mainframe data management features of the storage system can restrict CU image compatibility.


The Provisioning Guide for Mainframe Systems provide instructions for converting single volumes LVIs into multiple smaller volumes to improve data access performance. The combination enables the continuous operations, self-managing policy-driven management, and agile IT demanded by new breed of cloud applications.

For hitacgi information about supported operating systems, see the mainframe support matrix on https: If possible, the primary f1000 and alternate paths should be attached to different channel cards.

Each of these array groups can be configured as either x or OPEN-x logical devices. Open-systems compatibility and functionality.

Hardware architecture – Hitachi Vantara Knowledge

Advantage This configuration hitacchi highly usable and reliable because of the duplicated data. Two disk drives, plus primary and secondary disk drives, compose a RAID pair mirroring pair and the identical data is written to the primary and secondary disk drives.

Services Service ProvidersVirtual Appliances. Item Description Description Mirror disks duplicated writes. Users should plan for path failover alternate pathing to ensure the highest data availability.

Write penalty of RAID 5 is larger than that of RAID 1 because pre-update data and pre-update parity data must be read internally as the parity data is updated when data is updated. The Mainframe Host Attachment and Operations Guidedescribes and provides instructions related to configuring the storage system for Mainframe operations, including FICON attachment, hardware definition, cache operations, and device operations.

The system provides a highly granular upgrade path, allowing the addition of drives to the drive chassis, and components such as virtual storage directors to the controller chassis as storage needs increase. The host modes and host mode options enhance compatibility with supported platforms and environments.


The advantages of LDEV striping are: This configuration is highly usable and reliable because of the duplicated data. An array group also called parity group is the basic unit of storage capacity for the storage system.

VSP G1000 VSP GF1500

Requires disk capacity twice as large as the user data. Enterprise-wide scalability provides a complete separation between host and storage independent of connectivity, location, storage system or vendor. LDEV striping across array groups.

To gain these benefits, 1g000 storage system supports RAID levels 1, 5 and 6. Global storage virtualization enables an always-on infrastructure. When your system is configured, the hosts connected to each port are grouped by host group or by target. The System Administrator Guide provides instructions for installing, configuring, and using Device Manager – Storage Navigator to perform resource and data management operations on the storage systems. RAID 1 is highly usable and reliable because of the duplicated data.
