The ThinkSystem DM3000H controller enclosures ship with four interconnect 10 GbE SFP+ ports (two ports per controller) to cable a directly-connected dual-controller HA pair or for switched cluster interconnect with multiple dual-controller HA pairs. Up to 6 HA pairs can be combined into a single SAN cluster or up to 12 HA pairs can be combined into a single NAS cluster.

The ThinkSystem DM3000H controller enclosures ship with one of the following interface types:

  • 8x Universal SFP+ ports (four ports per controller) for 1/10 GbE NAS / iSCSI or 16 Gb FC host connectivity.
  • 8x 1/10 GbE RJ-45 ports (four ports per controller) for 1/10 GbE NAS / iSCSI host connectivity.

Each DM3000H controller enclosure also provides four integrated 12 Gb SAS x4 expansion ports (Mini-SAS HD SFF-8644 connectors) (two ports per controller) for the attachment of the ThinkSystem DM Series expansion enclosures.

Configuration notes:

  • Two controllers are required for selection. Both controllers must be of the same type (either 16 Gb FC / 10 GbE or 10GBASE-T, but not both types), and they must have matching configurations of the base ports (type and physical connections).
  • A pair of the universal SFP+ base ports (e0c/0c and e0d/0d or e0e/0e and e0f/0f) in the system must have the same connectivity type (either Ethernet or Fibre Channel, but not both types) and the same type of physical connections; different pairs might have different types of connectivity.

Each ThinkSystem DM Series expansion enclosure ships with two SAS I/O expansion modules. Each I/O expansion module provides two external 12 Gb SAS x4 ports (Mini-SAS HD SFF-8644 connectors labelled Port 1-4) that are used for connections to the ThinkSystem DM3000H and for daisy chaining the expansion enclosures between each other.

The dual-path HA (high availability) connectivity topology for the enclosures is shown in the following figure.

DM3000H expansion enclosure connectivity topology
Figure 9. DM3000H expansion enclosure connectivity topology

Expansion cabling rules:

  • Port 0b on the Controller 1 is the primary path that is connected to the Port 3 on the I/O Module A in the last expansion enclosure in a stack.
  • Port 1 on the I/O Module A in the last expansion enclosure is connected to Port 3 on the I/O Module A in the adjacent expansion enclosure, and so on (until the first expansion enclosure in a stack is cabled).
  • Port 0a on the Controller 1 is the secondary path that is connected to the Port 1 on the I/O Module B in the first expansion enclosure in a stack.
  • Port 0b on the Controller 2 is the primary path that is connected to the Port 3 on the I/O Module B in the last expansion enclosure in a stack.
  • Port 1 on the I/O Module B in the last expansion enclosure is connected to Port 3 on the I/O Module B in the adjacent expansion enclosure, and so on (until the first expansion enclosure in a stack is cabled).
  • Port 0a on the Controller 2 is the secondary path that is connected to the Port 1 on the I/O Module A in the first expansion enclosure in a stack.

The features are summarized as follows: 

  • RAID-4, RAID-DP, and RAID-TEC data protection: Provides the flexibility to choose the level of data protection required and helps improve performance and availability with built-in spare capacity and by distributing data across all physical drives in the aggregate, sustaining to up to one (RAID-4), two (RAID-DP), or three (RAID-TEC) concurrent drive failures. 
  • Thin provisioning: Optimizes efficiency by allocating storage space based on the minimum space required by each application at any given time, so that applications consume only the space they are actually using, not the total space that has been allocated to them, which allows customers to purchase storage they need today and add more as application requirements grow. 
  • Compression: Provides transparent inline and post-process data compression to reduce the amount of storage that customers need to purchase and manage. 
  • Deduplication: Performs general-purpose deduplication for removal of redundant data to reduce the amount of storage that customers need to purchase and manage. 
  • Snapshots: Enables creation of read-only copies of data for backup, parallel processing, testing, and development, and have the copies available almost immediately. 
  • Encryption: Provides software-based encryption for data at rest for enhanced data security with the traditional drives and embedded key management (requires the encryption-capable version of the ONTAP software). 
  • Balanced placement: Provides automated workload distribution across the cluster to help increase utilization and performance. 
  • Dynamic capacity expansion: Allows the capacity of a volume or aggregate to be expanded by adding new physical drives. 
  • Adaptive Quality of Service: Simplifies operations and maintains consistent workload performance by defining QoS policies and automatically adjusting storage resources to respond to workload changes. 
  • SnapRestore: Enables quick recovery of data by reverting a local volume or file to its previous state from a particular snapshot copy stored on the file system. 
  • FlexClone: References snapshot metadata to create writable point-in-time copies of a volume. 
  • FlexVol: Provides abstraction layer between the logical volume and its physical location in the storage array. 
  • FlexCache: Speeds up access to data and offloads traffic from heavily accessed volumes for read-intensive workloads by placing frequently used data in cache locally or remotely (closer to the point of client access) and serving the data to the clients directly from cache without accessing the data source. 
  • SnapMirror asynchronous replication: Provides storage system-based data replication between the storage systems containing source (local) and destination (remote) volumes by using asynchronous (at specified regular intervals) data transfers over IP communication links. 
  • SyncMirror data protection: Adds extra level of data protection and availability by mirroring a pair of RAID aggregates. 
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM): For encryption enabled systems.  The encryption keys for the onboard key manager (OKM) are no longer stored in the boot device, but instead are stored in the physical TPM for systems so equipped, offering greater security and protection. Moving to the TPM is a nondisruptive process.
  • MetroCluster IP: Provides storage system-based clustering with online, real-time data mirroring between the local and remote sites by using synchronous data transfers over IP communication links to deliver continuous availability with zero RPO and near-zero RTO. All storage systems in a MetroCluster IP configuration must be of the same model. New to ONTAP 9.11: MetroCluster with Storage Virtual Machine Disaster Recovery (SVM-DR) can now use a third site for the SVM-DR
  • NVMe over TCP Protocol: Enables NVMe over TCP
  • Data Protection Optimized (DPO): Increases the amount of concurrent SnapMirror sessions per node, as well as improving SnapMirror performance to the cluster.
  • SnapMirror synchronous replication: Provides storage system-based data replication between the storage systems containing source (local) and destination (remote) volumes by using synchronous (as soon as the data is written to the source volume)
  • FlexGroup: Enables a single volume to span across multiple clustered storage arrays to maximize storage capacity and automate load distribution. New to ONTAP 9.11: FlexGroups can now be created as SnapLock volumes.
  • SnapVault disk-based storage backup: Enables data stored on multiple systems to be backed up to a central, secondary system quickly and efficiently as read-only snapshot copies. 
  • SnapCenter: Provides application- and virtual machine-aware backup and restoration of data by using the Snapshots technology and leverages the SnapMirror capabilities of storage systems to provide onsite or offsite backup set mirroring for disaster recovery. 
  • ONTAP S3: Expands the DM Series unified story and allows customers to manage, block, file, and object data from one interface. Customers can now natively store data in S3 buckets onboard the DM Series. 
  • ONTAP S3 SnapMirror : Enables you to protect buckets in ONTAP S3 object stores using familiar SnapMirror mirroring and backup functionality. Requires ONTAP 9.10.1 or later on both source and destination clusters. Requires the Unified Premium Bundle.
  • SnapMirror Cloud: A backup and recovery technology designed for ONTAP users who want to transition their data protection workflows to the cloud. SnapMirror Cloud is an extension to the family of SnapMirror replication technologies. While SnapMirror is frequently used for ONTAP-to-ONTAP backups, SnapMirror Cloud uses the same replication engine to transfer Snapshot copies for ONTAP to S3-compliant object storage backups.
  • Multitenant Key Management (MTKM): Provides the ability for individual tenants or storage virtual machines (SVMs) to maintain their own keys through KMIP for NVE. With multitenant external key management, you can centralize your organization’s key management functions by department or tenant while inherently confirming that keys are not stored near the assets. This approach decreases the possibility of compromise.
  • Anti-ransomware: Uses workload analysis in NAS (NFS and SMB) environments to proactively detect and warn about abnormal activity that might indicate a ransomware attack. When an attack is suspected, anti-ransomware also creates new Snapshot backups, in addition to existing protection from scheduled Snapshot copies. New to ONTAP 9.11: Optional multi-admin verification to approve administration functions that could result in data loss.

Add-on feature bundles:

  • Security and Compliance Bundle: Licensed per 2-node HA Pair, the Security and Compliance Bundle provides built-in protection from ransomware and while also providing the ability to meet regulatory compliance and organizational data retention requirements.
    • Includes: Anti-ransomware feature with Multitenant Key Management (MTKM) and SnapLock
  • Hybrid Cloud Bundle: Licensed per TB (3 Year & 5 Year Offerings) the Hybrid Cloud Bundle provides the ability to use S3 SnapMirror from ONTAP to the Public Cloud (AWS S3) and/or SnapMirror Cloud with participating ISV Backup providers.
    • Includes SnapMirror Cloud and FabricPool

Optional Extended features also available via Feature on Demand (FoD) (see the Extended ONTAP features section)

  • FabricPool: FabricPool is a hybrid storage solution that uses an all flash (all SSD) aggregate as the performance tier and an object store as the external capacity tier. Data in a FabricPool is stored in a tier based on whether it is frequently accessed or not. Using a FabricPool helps you reduce storage cost without compromising performance, efficiency, or protection.
  • SnapLock data protection: Creates Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) non-rewritable, non-erasable data on hard disk drives to prevent files from being altered or deleted until a predetermined or default retention date.

Ansible playbooks for DM Series

Ansible Playbooks give customers the ability to quickly deploy and use DM Series storage systems using a standard open source deployment tool. Each playbook executes a set of tasks to achieve a configuration/provisioning goal.

Lenovo has created playbooks that can be used with DM Series storage systems to help with:

  • Provisioning
  • Configuring

To access the Ansible Playbooks for Lenovo ThinkSystem DM Series storage systems, go to the following page:
https://github.com/lenovo/ansible-dm-series-ontap

Management

The ThinkSystem DM3000H supports the following management interfaces:

  • Lenovo ThinkSystem Storage Manager, a web-based interface via HTTPS for single-system management or centralized management of the cluster of systems, that runs on the storage system itself and requires only a supported browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox), so there is no need for a separate console or plug-in.
  • Command line interface (CLI) via SSH or through serial console.
  • Syslog, SNMP, and e-mail notifications.
  • Optional Lenovo XClarity for discovery, inventory, monitoring, and alerts.

Power supplies and cables

The ThinkSystem DM3000H, DM120S 2U12 LFF, and DM240S 2U24 LFF enclosures ship with two redundant hot-swap 913 W (100 - 240 V) Platinum AC power supplies, each with an IEC 320-C14 connector.

The ThinkSystem DM600S 4U60 LFF expansion enclosures ship with two redundant hot-swap 2325 W (200 - 240 V) Platinum AC power supplies, each with an IEC 320-C20 connector.

Each ThinkSystem DM Series enclosure requires the selection of two power cables.

Parts that are determined to be customer-replaceable units (CRUs) do not include onsite labor under base warranty.

If warranty terms include parts-only base warranty, Lenovo is responsible for delivering only replacement parts that are under base warranty (including FRUs) that will be sent to a requested location for self-service. Parts-only service does not include a service technician being dispatched onsite. Parts must be changed at customer’s own cost and labor and defective parts must be returned following the instructions supplied with the spare parts.

Lenovo Service offerings are region-specific. Not all preconfigured support and upgrade options are available in every region. For information about Lenovo service upgrade offerings that are available in your region, refer to the following resources:

Services

Lenovo Services is a dedicated partner to your success. Our goal is to reduce your capital outlays, mitigate your IT risks, and accelerate your time to productivity.

Here’s a more in-depth look at what we can do for you:

  • Asset Recovery Services

    Asset Recovery Services (ARS) helps customers recover the maximum value from their end-of-life equipment in a cost-effective and secure way. On top of simplifying the transition from old to new equipment, ARS mitigates environmental and data security risks associated with data center equipment disposal. Lenovo ARS is a cash-back solution for equipment based on its remaining market value, yielding maximum value from aging assets and lowering total cost of ownership for your customers. For more information, see the ARS page, https://lenovopress.com/lp1266-reduce-e-waste-and-grow-your-bottom-line-with-lenovo-ars.

  • Assessment Services

    An Assessment helps solve your IT challenges through an onsite, multi-day session with a Lenovo technology expert. We perform a tools-based assessment which provides a comprehensive and thorough review of a company's environment and technology systems. In addition to the technology based functional requirements, the consultant also discusses and records the non-functional business requirements, challenges, and constraints. Assessments help organizations like yours, no matter how large or small, get a better return on your IT investment and overcome challenges in the ever-changing technology landscape.

  • Design Services

    Professional Services consultants perform infrastructure design and implementation planning to support your strategy. The high-level architectures provided by the assessment service are turned into low level designs and wiring diagrams, which are reviewed and approved prior to implementation. The implementation plan will demonstrate an outcome-based proposal to provide business capabilities through infrastructure with a risk-mitigated project plan.

  • Basic Hardware Installation

    Lenovo experts can seamlessly manage the physical installation of your server, storage, or networking hardware. Working at a time convenient for you (business hours or off shift), the technician will unpack and inspect the systems on your site, install options, mount in a rack cabinet, connect to power and network, check and update firmware to the latest levels, verify operation, and dispose of the packaging, allowing your team to focus on other priorities.

  • Deployment Services

    When investing in new IT infrastructures, you need to ensure your business will see quick time to value with little to no disruption. Lenovo deployments are designed by development and engineering teams who know our Products & Solutions better than anyone else, and our technicians own the process from delivery to completion. Lenovo will conduct remote preparation and planning, configure & integrate systems, validate systems, verify and update appliance firmware, train on administrative tasks, and provide post-deployment documentation. Customer’s IT teams leverage our skills to enable IT staff to transform with higher level roles and tasks.

  • Integration, Migration, and Expansion Services

    Move existing physical & virtual workloads easily, or determine technical requirements to support increased workloads while maximizing performance. Includes tuning, validation, and documenting ongoing run processes. Leverage migration assessment planning documents to perform necessary migrations.
