Using an FC adapter, you can connect the control enclosure to up to three more systems for a maximum of eight nodes. The storage system consists of a set of drive enclosures. You can create the following types of volumes on the system. Table 1 shows the fabric types that can be used for communicating between hosts, nodes, and RAID storage systems. Each Storwize V control enclosure contains two node canisters. Each expansion enclosure has a chain weight of 1.

With the two active ports on this adapter, the control enclosure can support 2 SAS chains that can connect to the following expansion enclosures: The system also provides the following functions: The configuration node is a role that any node can take.
Up to 20 F or F knfocenter expansion enclosures. Two PCIe networking adapter slots that can support any combination of the following optional adapters: A system that does not contain any internal drives can be used as a storage virtualization solution.
Because a volume is served by two node canisters, the volume continues to be available if one node canister fails or is taken offline.
As Figure 2 shows, the top node canister is inverted above the bottom one. IBM Spectrum Virtualize software provides the following functions for the host systems that attach to the system: Expansion enclosures contain SAS drives and are attached to control enclosures.
Each node also provides a command-line interface and web interface to enable infocennter hardware service actions. Example of a basic volume. The drives are accessible from the front of the control enclosure, as shown in Figure 1.

If the current configuration node fails, a new configuration node is selected from the remaining nodes. Up to eight F 5U expansion enclosures.
The control enclosure also contains two power supply units PSUs that operate independently of each other. The configuration node runs a web server and provides a command-line interface CLI. These fabric types can be used at the same time. A node canister can also support up to two 2-port 25 Gbps Ethernet host interface adapters.
Example of a standard system topology. A Storwize V Gen3 system can connect to the following control enclosures: A collection of control enclosures that are managed as a single system is called a clustered system or a system. Like other Storwize V systems, Storwize V Gen3 control enclosures use trust-based licenses for virtualization, Remote Copy, and compression.

NVMe is designed specifically for flash technologies. Basic volumes can be established in any system v700 however, Figure 7 shows a standard system topology.
The nodes in a clustered system operate as a single system and present a single point nifocenter control for system management and service. You can create the following types of volumes infoocenter the system. Each expansion enclosure has a infocentee weight of 2. For example, 24 FlashCore Modules in the Supports the NVMe transport protocol for high performance of 2.
Standard topology, where all node canisters in the system are at the same site. Each expansion enclosure has a chain weight of 1. Table 1 shows the fabric types that can be used for communicating between hosts, nodes, and RAID storage systems.
NVMe-attached drives support multiple queues so that each CPU core in the control enclosure can communicate directly with a drive. Control enclosures contain NVMe flash drives and a pair of node canisters.
