(4) Disk Drive
When deciding how many disk drives are required, remember that logical disk capacity varies
depending on disk drive type (I/F, capacity) and RAID type. The number of disk drives is dependent on
the amount of logical disk capacity that is required. The amount of required logical disk capacity varies
depending on the amount of data usage and whether or not features (Snapshot, Replication) are
required. Using required logical disk capacity and performance that is required, decide the number of
disk drives, taking into account the disk drive type (I/F, capacity, rotation speed) and RAID type.
At least three disk drives have to be populated with any disk drive types (SAS/Nearline SAS/SAS
SSD)
Refer to (5) Supported RAID for supported RAID types.

(4-1) Disk Capacity


(Considerations for System Volume)
A system volume, in which performance logs, etc. are automatically saved, is created in the first
binding Pool. System volume capacity is 8.0 GB. (or 8.6GB if 1KB = 1000Byte)
(Considerations for Snapshot)
When using the snapshot feature, it is necessary to create a snapshot reservation area for replication
of a master volume (snapshot).
(Considerations for Replication)
When implementing the replication feature, use the storage system information retention function* and
create a replication reserved volume with the NEC StorageManager application. The capacity of a
replication reserved volume is 8.0GB. (or 8.6GB if 1KB = 1000Byte)
When turning power off via a planned shutdown all storage system information (differential map, etc)
will be backed up onto the replication reserved volume only if it was configured. If the replication
reserved volume is not configured then storage system information will be lost on shutdown. When
restarting after a planned shutdown, I/O load will be generated as data on the MV is fully copied to the
RV. This startup load may be large enough to temporarily affect performance. It is recommended to
operate 24 hours nonstop, especially if running without a replication reserved volume.
* Storage system information retention function is used to backup storage system information such as
the differential map between business volume (MV) and replication volume (RV) onto disk drives.

(4-3) Disk Drive Usage
Both base unit and SAS disk enclosures can include a mix of SAS/Nearline SAS/SAS SSD disk drives
and disk drives with different capacities and rotation speeds.
A pool must contain disk drives with the same interface. The capacity or rotation speed does not matter.
However, it is strongly recommended to have the same capacity and the same rotation speed in the
same pool. When having different capacities of disk drive in a pool, the pool will be created based on
the disk drive with the smallest capacity. In this case, the differences between larger disk drives and
the smallest disk drives are not used. Note that SAS and Nearline SAS are different interfaces.
<Example>
A pool configured by SAS disk drives (15krpm/300GB) and SAS disk drives (15krpm/600GB)
 The SAS disk drive (15krpm/600GB) is treated as a SAS disk drive (15krpm/300GB).
When using different speeds of disk drives in a pool, the pool will be created based on the slowest disk
speed. In this case, performance will not be as good as expected because drives with faster speed are
treated the same as drives with the slowest speed.
<Example>
A pool configured by 3.5 SAS disk drives (15krpm/300GB) and 2.5 SAS disk
drive(10krpm/300GB)
 The SAS disk drive (15krpm/300GB) is treated as a SAS disk drive (10krpm/300GB).
(4-4) Supported RAID

(4-5) Dynamic Pool


NEC Storage -Series supports only dynamic pools. LUN capacity can be modified dynamically.
Capacity is constant regardless of the number of disk drives. It is slightly less than the table on the
previous page. Striping is automatic when an applicable number of disk drives are used with RAID
types that support striping.
Example: RAID-1 with 4 disk drives is automatically configured as RAID-10.
Refer to 5. Functions <Pool> for more details about Dynamic Pool.

(4-6) Hot Spare Disk
When assigning hot spare disks:
Assigning a hot spare disk enables automatic restoration of data without waiting for a maintenance
service agent in the event of disk failure. Data redundancy is recovered when restoring the data to
the hot spare.
M-Series has a Preventive maintenance function that moves data to hot spare disks before a disk
failure occurs by detecting symptoms of the failure in order to maintain redundancy.
It is strongly recommended to assign a hot spare disk in order to enhance the availability of disk array
units.
M-Series has a global hot spare function which enables hot spare disks to be used with any
HDD/SSD.
SSD hot spare is only good with SSDs. SSD cannot be used as a hot spare with HDDs. Likewise,
HDD cannot be used as a hot spare with SSDs.
When multiple types of disk drives are defined as hot spare disks, the priority is as follows.
1.The same interface, the same capacity and the same rotation speed as the base disk drive*.
2.The same interface, the same capacity as the base disk drive* but the slower disk used first
when multiple speeds of hot spare drives exist.
3.The same interface as the base disk drive*, but larger than the base disk drive*. When multiple
sizes of hot spare disks exist, the smaller disk is used first.
* Base disk drive = disk drive with the smallest capacity/slowest rotation speed in the pool.
The number of recommended hot spares varies depending on the disk drive type. Refer to the table
below.

Hot spare is optional. Because SAS SSD does not have mechanical parts
such as motors, heads and media, it is reliable. Assign hot spare disks as a
customer requests.

CAUTION: The Number of Disk Enclosures

M-Series can use a mix of 3.5 and 2.5 disk enclosures at the same time.
The sum of available disk drive slots in both base unit and disk enclosures must not exceed the
supported maximum number of disk drives. Note: Even if a disk drive slot is not populated, it is still
counted.
For example:
I would like to use 96 disk drives in base unit (3.5) and four disk enclosures (2.5).
1 x 3.5 base unit: 12 disk drives in base unit
4 x 2.5 disk enclosures: 24 disk drives in three disk enclosures. 12 disk drives in
one disk enclosure.
Is this supported? No, it is not supported.

1 x Base Unit
Max. number of disk drives of 3.5 base unit: 12
Max. number of disk drives of 2.5 disk enclosure: 24
12 (base unit) + 24 + 24 + 24 + 24 = 108 disk drive slots
12 (base unit) + 24 + 24 + 24 + 12 = 96 disk drives

M100 Disk Array supports disk drives up to 96. However,


the sum of available disk drive slots in base unit and disk

(4) Disk Drive
When deciding how many disk drives are required, remember that logical disk capacity varies
depending on both disk drive type (I/F, capacity) and RAID type. The amount of required logical disk
capacity varies depending on the amount of data usage and whether or not specific features (Snapshot,
Replication) are required. Using estimated logical disk capacity and desired performance, the number
of disk drives can be estimated. Include all relevant topology factors (I/F, capacity, rotation speed,
RAID type) when calculating capacity. A minimum of three disk drives is required.
Refer to (4-4) Supported RAID for supported RAID types.

(4-1) Disk Capacity


(Considerations for System Volume)
A system volume, in which performance logs, etc. are automatically saved, is created in the first
binding Pool. System volume capacity is 8.0 GB. (or 8.6GB if 1KB = 1000Byte)
(Considerations for Snapshot)
When using the snapshot feature, it is necessary to create a snapshot reservation area for replication
of a master volume (snapshot).
(Considerations for Replication)
When implementing the replication feature, use the storage system information retention function* and
create a replication reserved volume with the NEC StorageManager application. The capacity of a
replication reserved volume is 8.0GB. (or 8.6GB if 1KB = 1000Byte)
When turning power off via a planned shutdown all storage system information (differential map, etc)
will be backed up onto the replication reserved volume only if it was configured. If the replication
reserved volume is not configured then storage system information will be lost on shutdown. When
restarting after a planned shutdown, I/O load will be generated as data on the MV is fully copied to the
RV. This startup load may be large enough to temporarily affect performance. It is recommended to
operate 24 hours nonstop, especially if running without a replication reserved volume.
* Storage system information retention function is used to backup storage system information such as
the differential map between business volume (MV) and replication volume (RV) onto disk drives.

(4-3) Disk Drive Usage
Both the base unit and SAS disk enclosures can include a mix of SAS disk drives/Nearline SAS disk
drives/SAS SSD and disk drives with different capacities and rotation speeds.
A pool must contain disk drives with the same interface. The capacity or rotation speed does not matter.
However, it is strongly recommended to use devices of the same capacity and same rotation speed in
a pool. When using different capacities of disk drive in a pool, the pool will be created based on the
disk drive with the smallest capacity. In this case, the differences between larger disk drives and the
smallest disk drives are not used. Note that SAS and Nearline SAS are different interfaces.
<Example>
A pool configured by SAS disk drives (15krpm/300GB) and SAS disk drives (15krpm/600GB)
The SAS disk drive (15krpm/600GB) is treated as a SAS disk drive (15krpm/300GB).
When using different speeds of disk drives in a pool, the pool will be created based on the slowest disk
speed. In this case, performance will not be as good as expected because drives with faster speed are
treated the same as drives with the slowest speed.
<Example>
A pool configured by 3.5 SAS disk drives (15krpm/300GB) and 2.5 SAS disk drive(10krpm/300GB)
The SAS disk drive (15krpm/300GB) is treated as a SAS disk drive (10krpm/300GB).

Capacity is constant regardless of the number of disk drives. It is slightly less than the table above.
Striping is automatic when an applicable number of disk drives are used with RAID types that support it.
<Example> RAID-1 with 4 disk drives is automatically configured as RAID-10.

(4-6) Hot Spare Disk
When assigning hot spare disks:
Assigning a hot spare disk enables automatic restoration of data without waiting for a maintenance
service agent in the event of disk failure. Data redundancy is recovered when restoring the data to
the hot spare.
M-Series has a Preventive maintenance function that moves data to hot spare disks before a disk
failure occurs by detecting symptoms of the failure in order to maintain redundancy.
It is strongly recommended to assign a hot spare disk in order to enhance the availability of disk array
units.
M-Series has a global hot spare function which enables hot spare disks to be used with any
HDD/SSD.
SSD hot spare is only good with SSDs. SSD cannot be used as a hot spare with HDDs. Likewise,
HDD cannot be used as a hot spare with SSDs.
When multiple types of disk drives are defined as hot spare disks, the priority is as follows.
1. The same interface, the same capacity and the same rotation speed as the base disk drive*.
2. The same interface, the same capacity as the base disk drive* but the slower disk used first
when multiple speeds of hot spare drives exist.
3. The same interface as the base disk drive*, but larger than the base disk drive*. When multiple
sizes of hot spare disks exist, the smaller disk is used first.
* Base disk drive = disk drive with the smallest capacity/slowest rotation speed in the pool.
The number of recommended hot spares varies depending on the disk drive type. Refer to the table
below.

such as motors, heads and media, it is reliable. Assign hot spare disks as a

4. Disk Drive (1)


(1) Disk Drive Size and Type
M-Series products support the following types of drives: SSD, SAS, and Nearline SAS. Performance,
reliability, and price of disk drives vary depending on the type and size. Select the proper disk drive
according to the intended application.
(1-1) Disk Drive Size
There are two relevant form factors of disk drives: 3.5 and 2.5.
 3.5 HDD
The maximum rotation speed is 15krpm for a high performance HDD. The larger 7.2krpm Nearline
SAS drive topology offers an excellent cost per capacity ratio.
 2.5 HDD
2.5 HDD is a power saving HDD, which uses about half the electricity of the 3.5 HDD, it also saves
space. One 2U chassis can support up to 24 HDDs.
(1-2) Disk Drive Type
 SSD (Solid State Drive)
Unlike a conventional HDD, SSD does not have mechanical parts such as motors, heads and media.
Reliability and random access performance is superior to conventional HDD. SSD is a green product
because it reduces power consumption.
 SAS HDD (Serial Attached SCSI Hard Disk Drive)
SAS HDD is excellent in reliability and performance. It is good for mission-critical systems that require
high-performance and non-stop operation.
 Nearline SAS HDD (Nearline Serial Attached SCSI Hard Disk Drive)
Nearline SAS is a high capacity and low cost HDD. It is good for backup and archive and can be used
for workloads which do not require high volumes of random access I/O. Because Nearline SAS HDD
has large capacity and low performance, it takes longer time to recover compared to SAS HDD.
From the perspective of reliability, double redundancy RAID types such as RAID-6 or RAID-TM
are recommended.

4. Disk Drive (2)


(2) Disk Drive Usage
In M-Series products, disk enclosures can include a mix of SSD, SAS HDD and Nearline SAS HDDs.
M-Series products provide more flexibility of choices; SAS Disk Drive for mission-critical systems that
require high-performance and non-stop operation or Nearline SAS HDD for systems that require lowcost and the backup with large capacity.
(2-1) SSD
SSD is a higher price and higher performance HDD and ideal for the systems as follows:
1. Database index
2. Field applications
(2-2) SAS HDD
SAS HDD is excellent in performance, capacity and reliability. It is ideal for mission-critical systems
that require high-performance at low cost as follows:
1. Frequently accessed database
2. Mission-critical applications
(2-3) Nearline SAS HDD
Nearline SAS HDD is ideal for the systems that do not require high performance but large capacity at
low cost as follows:
1. Large data sets (Web, Images, Research and development data, E-mail)
2. Disk backup
3. Archive Data protection (VolumeProtect)
4. Replication between arrays (RemoteDataReplication) RV (Replication Volume)
5. Replication within the same array (DynamicDataReplication) RV (Replication Volume)

Logical disks

(1-2) Pool Type


Pools include Basic Pools and Dynamic Pools.
Basic Pool
- Basic pools consist of a fixed number of physical disks.
- It is not possible to expand pool size and logical disk capacity.
Dynamic Pools
Since multiple storage areas in the pool are being managed, the data will be retained when physical
disks are added and storage areas are expanded.
- Pool capacity can be expanded with the existing data retained.
- Logical disk capacity can be expanded with the existing data retained.
- A logical disk allocated from the pool can be immediately used by a production server.
The M-Series products support only dynamic pools, which increases functionality and performance
dynamically as well as delivers simplified operation in system management.

Note:
Since Nearline SAS disk drives have a larger capacity with lower rotation speed than traditional SAS,
it requires more rebuilding time when disk failure occurs, which may lead to another failure. RAID
types such as RAID-6 or RAID-TM, which have multiple layers of redundancy, are strongly
recommended because they provide more reliability.

Note: Striping and the number of HDDs (RAID-10/50/60/TM)


A dynamic pool can be built with any combination of RAID type and number of HDD by using
virtualization technology. Striping is automatic when configuring a pool with more than twice the
minimum number of HDDs in each RAID type. For example, RAID-1 with 4 HDDs is automatically
configured as RAID-10. It is also possible to configure a pool with 3 HDDs in RAID-1, in which case,
it will be equivalent to the striping effect of RAID-10.

Note: Pool Configuration


In M-Series products, a system volume which manages performance logs etc is automatically created
in the pool first created. The capacity of a system volume is 8.6GB (1GB=10003Byte) /
8.0GB(1G=10243Byte).
When using DynamicDataReplication, it is recommended to create the master volume (MV) and the
replication volumes (RV) in the different pool. When using DynamicDataReplication or
RemoteDataReplication, it is also recommended to use the storage system information retention
function and configure replication reserved volume by NEC StorageManager. The capacity of a
replication reserved volume is 8.6GB(1GB=10003Byte) / 8.0GB(1G=10243Byte).
* Storage system information retention function: backup storage system information such as the
differential map between business volume (MV) and replication volume (RV) onto disk drives.
Refer to 5. Functions <Storage System Information Retention Function> for more details.

(2-2) Expanding the Pool Capacity
You can expand the capacity of an existing pool by adding unused physical disks and incorporating
them into the pool. The added space becomes available to use for binding a new logical disk or
expanding the existing logical disk capacity. The expansion time depends on the pool type and the
number of disk drives added. Expansion can be executed on line during operation.

(2-3) Configuring Logical Disks
You can configure logical disks by allocating the required amount from the unused space in the
dynamic pool.

The maximum number of logical disk is 1024 per 1 dynamic pool.


The minimum capacity of logical disk for configuration is 1GB.
The unit of logical disk for configuration is 1GB.
The maximum size of a logical disk which can be used as a snapshot volume is 10TB.
DDR and MV can be created up to 10TB.
The logical disks can be used immediately after they are configured. (Quick LUN configuration
function) Formatting of logical disks is run in the background.

(2-4) Expanding Logical Disk Capacity Function


Expansion can be executed on line during operation.
Logical disk capacity can be expanded with retention of the existing data.
When expanding a logical disk, unused space in the same pool is available for the expansion.
Note: The unused space must exist in a pool in which logical disks belong.
After increasing capacity, the space, including any additional space, is available for use.
Note: The procedure for adding space vary depending on the server OS. Reboot may be required
depending on the OS.

The file system can not be expanded when expanding a logical disk. Do the
following procedures;
Linux

a) Back up the contents of a logical disk to media such as a tape, etc.


b) Expand the logical disk.
c) Rebuild the file system in the expanded logical disk.
Note: The data in the logical disk is deleted.
d) Restore the data from backup media such as a tape in the rebuilt file system.

5. Functions <Hot Spare Disk (1)>


(1) Hot Spare Disk
Binding the hot spare disk enables automatic restoration of data when a disk failure occurs, without
having to wait for a maintenance service agent. Data redundancy is restored when the data copy to the
hot spare disk is complete.

<Example>

RAID-5

Failure

Hot spare disk

Binding of hot spare disk(s) is strongly recommended in order to enhance the availability of disk array
unit.
The unit has a global hot spare function which enables hot spare disks to be used in any RAID group.
Note that SSD hot spare is only good with SSDs. SSD cannot be used as a hot spare with HDDs.
Likewise, HDD cannot be used as a hot spare with SSDs.
A pool cannot consist of a mix which includes encrypted and unencrypted HDDs. Encrypted HDDs
also cannot be used as hot spares for unencrypted HDDs.
A hot spare disk protects disk drives with the following characteristics.
- The same interface as hot spare disk
- The same amount of capacity or less as hot spare disk
- The same speed of rotations or less as hot spare disk
When there are disks with various capacities and rotation speeds within the disk array unit, it is
recommended to have hot spare disks for each disk with the same capacity and the same rotation
speed to make management easier. (Note that SAS and Nearline SAS are different interfaces.)

1. The same interface, the same capacity and the same rotation speed as the base disk drive*.
2. The same interface and the same capacity as the base disk drive* but the slower disk used first
when multiple speeds of hot spare drives exist.
3. The same interface as the base disk drive*, but larger than the base disk drive*. When multiple
sizes of hot spare disks exist, the smaller disk is used first.
* Base disk drive = disk drive with the smallest capacity/slowest rotation speed in the pool.

(2) Operation of Rebuilding Data to Hot Spare Disk
Copy Back Mode: Off (Default)
After the data is restored, the replaced disk is automatically designated as the hot spare disk. When
replacing the hot spare disk with the same capacity/rotation speed, data is not copied back. However,
when a hot spare disk with larger capacity/higher rotation speed is replaced with a disk drive of
smaller capacity/lower rotation speed, the data is copied back to its original location (on the replaced
disk).

Hot spare is optional. Because SAS SSD does not have mechanical parts
such as motors, heads and media, it is reliable. Therefore, hot spare is not
necessary.

5. Functions <Storage System Information Retention Function>


Storage System Information Retention Function
When using the data replication function, the storage system data such as the differential map between
the master volume (MV) and the replication volumes (RV) is created in the cache memory. The
storage system information retention function backs up the storage system data to a disk drive. The
volume to backup, which is called replication reserved volume, can be configured by the procedures
in the NEC StorageManager manual.
It is strongly recommended to use the storage system information retention function when using data
replication function. When not using the storage system information retention function, the updated
difference data is not saved when rebooting after the scheduled plan is completed, and requires a full
copy of data in MV to RV. Until copying of the entire data completes, an I/O load occurs which affects
the performance of operation. The replication reserved volume is 8.6GB (1GB=10003Byte) / 8.0GB
(1G=10243Byte).
Note:
Storage system information retention function is used for the planned stoppage to restore the storage
system information during the shutdown procedure but will not work for a power outage.

(3) How to setup encryption
When binding a pool with NEC StorageManager, see physical disk type. SED support/nonsupport of hard disks is displayed.
Encryption is enabled as encrypted hard drives default settings.
After binding a pool, protect an encryption key within hard drives by modifying authentication key
using authentication key setting tool (CLI).

(4) Notes for encryption


A disk array can consist of mix of encrypted hard drives (SED HDD) and unencrypted hard
drives (non-SED HDD).
A pool cannot consist of mix which includes encrypted hard drives and unencrypted hard drives.
Bind hot spare disks for both encrypted hard drives and unencrypted hard drives.
When data stored in SED HDD is replicated to non-SED HDD, the data replicated to non-SED
HDD will not be encrypted.
When creating snapshot of data in SED HDD, create SRA (Snapshot Reserved Area) in SED
HDD. If SRA is created in non-SED HDD, SV (Snapshot Volume) will not be encrypted.
A pool cannot be bound Immediately after unbinding a pool with SED HDDs. Wait a few minutes,
and then bind a pool. If it fails, wait another few minutes, then bind a pool. A logical disk can be
bound immediately after unbinding a logical disk.

5. Functions <Power Saving Function (1)>


(1) Power Saving Function: MAID (Massive Array of Inactive Disks) Technology
Power Saving Function (MAID technology) reduces power consumption by turning off the motor power
of unused physical disk in backup volumes. The operation of disks, spare disks, and unassigned disks
in a pool can be controlled according to the status of volume usage which is specified by the logical
disks. By controlling the start/stop operation of the unused disks, the power function provides the
fundamental ability to support power saving operations in business.

Note:
The control information area in cache memory is used for differential management information. When
the control information area overflows, it is no longer possible to store all pair information in it. In this
case the replication reserved volume is also used. Information which is less frequently accessed is
stored on this volume in order to store more pair differential management information. The system also
writes information in this volume and reads from it. Because of this physical disk access, overall
performance may be degraded.

UPS Considerations
1. Select a UPS to meet both the apparent power (VA) and the active power (W) requirements of the
storage disk array unit. Refer to the UPS manual for more details.
2. Storage units have redundant power supplies, there are two AC inputs in each unit. Both power
supplies are in use during normal operation. In the event of one power supply should fail, due to a
tripped breaker off or UPS failure, the remaining power supply is capable of providing power. Make
sure that the selected UPS is capable of providing sufficient and reliable power for all devices.

Battery Lifetime
The wear/lifetime of the battery is set for the hardware stable operation in M-Series. When purchasing

Battery Replacement
The NEC Disk Array Unit performance is enhanced when write-cache is on. The battery power is used
to retain the data on cache when an unplanned disconnection such as a power outage occurs. The
battery power is consumed while the disk array is running. It is necessary to replace the battery in
about five years*. This replacement can be done while the system is running.
* The lifetime of the battery is shortened when it is used at high temperature. Whereas it is about five
years at an ambient temperature of 25C (77F), it decreases to about half (two years and six
months) when the ambient temperature rises 10C (18F). As the frequency of battery backup
increases, the lifetime of battery decreases. This lifetime above is calculated considering only an
unplanned power disconnection such as power outage.
