IBM Feature Code: AF23
FlashSystem V9000 provides configurable hot-swappable flash module capacity.
The system can be populated with four, six, eight, ten, or twelve flash modules.
Flash modules capacities are 1.2 TB (feature number AF23), 2.9 TB (feature number AF24), or 5.7 TB (feature number AF25).
Mixing capacities within a single building block is not possible.
The following capacity points are possible by using (AF23) 1.2 TB flash modules:
- 2.2 TB: Four 1.2 TB flash modules with RAID 5 protection
- 4.5 TB: Six 1.2 TB flash modules with RAID 5 protection
- 6.8 TB: Eight 1.2 TB flash modules with RAID 5 protection
- 9.1 TB: Ten 1.2 TB flash modules with RAID 5 protection
- 11.4 TB: Twelve 1.2 TB flash modules with RAID 5 protection
It is important to configure the amount of storage needed correctly as it is not possible to dynamically add additional storage.
FlashSystem 900 can be populated with up to 12 x 1.2 TB IBM MicroLatency modules in increments of 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12; or up to 12 x 2.9 TB or 5.7 TB IBM MicroLatency modules in increments of 6, 8, 10, or 12.
These modules of either 1.2 TB, 2.9 TB, or 5.7 TB cannot be intermixed.
Capacity can be upgraded by purchasing the AF23 (1.2 TB), AF24 (2.9 TB)) or AF25 (5.7 TB) IBM MicroLatency module feature codes as MES upgrades.
