C9020-563 – IBM System Storage DS8000 Technical Solutions V5


QUESTION 1
A customer has two data centers and wants to plan for synchronous replication. Its telecommunications vendor has proposed different replication link bandwidths to choose from.
What must be considered when sizing the replication link?

A. Read I/Os per second on the primary system
B. Write MB/s on the primary system
C. The number of HBAs installed on the primary system
D. Capacity installed on the secondary system

Answer: A

QUESTION 2
A customer wants to use Global Mirror to replicate at 1000 kilometers but is concerned about the capacity at the remote site.
What is the minimum number of total copies of the data that must exist at the local and remote sites to support Global Mirror?

A. 4
B. 6
C. 2
D. 3

Answer: C

Explanation:
Global Mirror is a method of asynchronous, remote data replication between two sites that are over 300 kilometers (km) apart. It maintains identical data in both the source and target, where the source is located in one storage system and the target is located in another storage system. Using Global Mirror, your data exists on the second site that is more than 300 KM away, and can be restored to the first site.

QUESTION 3
What is a competitive advantage of IBM DS8880 Global Mirror versus EMC asynchronous remote replication?

A. No requirement for additional cache
B. No requirement for host software to manage consistency groups
C. No need for additional software to mix mainframe and open volumes in a single consistency group
D. No need to implement external time source

Answer: C


QUESTION 4
Which amperage option is available for the IBM DS8884 power cord?

A. 110 amp
B. 90 amp
C. 30 amp
D. 15 amp

Answer: C

Explanation:
The DS8884 configurations do not use more than 30 amps.
