IBM Storage Technical V1 試験
Question No : 1
What should the technical specialist explain when describing the addition of grid elements to an IBM FlashSystem A9000R?
Grid elements installed must all be the same type (interface options and MicroLatency module size). An intermix of interface options or MicroLatency module capacities is not supported.
Note: Two grid controllers and one flash enclosure are combined to make one grid element.
Capacity, caching, and processing power are added at the same time by adding in one or more grid elements to scale up.
IBM Flash System A9000R consists of 2 - 6 grid elements, where a partially populated rack (2 - 5 grid elements) is expanded by adding grid elements to the maximum number of six-grid elements.
Question No : 2
Which solution meets a customer’s requirements for 100,000 IOPS, lowest latency, and maximum of 30 TB of raw capacity for an Oracle database?
IBM FlashSystem 900 is designed to accelerate the applications that drive business C like those using an Oracle Database.
IBM FlashSystem 900 can scale usable capacity from as low as 2 TB to as much as 57 TB in a single system.
FlashSystem 900 delivers Tier 0 top application performance with up to 1.1 million 100% random read IOPS and 600,000 100% random write IOPS.
Question No : 3
A customer has locations in Singapore, London, and Denver and is considering IBM Spectrum Scale for its unstructured data.
How does IBM Spectrum Scale benefit this customer?
IBM Spectrum Scale provides a global namespace.
Question No : 4
A customer with a minimum IBM XIV configuration is upgrading to a full rack and plans to add SSDs for performance.
How many SSDs would be added during this upgrade?
A minimally populated rack for models 281x-114 and 281x-214 contains three data modules and three interface modules, for a total of six modules.
A fully populated rack contains nine data modules and six interface modules, for a total of 15 modules.
Question No : 5
How does an IBM XIV System provide a guarantee of consistent performance even under the most dynamically changing elastic cloud workload environments?
IBM XIV Cloud Storage for Service Providers, or client hosted cloud solutions require elastic, rapid response, and dynamic demand that is captured within XIV’s 485 TB linear scalability, and the immediate and automatic redistribution, without interruption, of added capacity. The grid design stripes data across all modules and disks, incorporating data redundancy for consistent and predictable I/O performance that is always load balanced.
Question No : 6
When implementing disk encryption on an existing IBM TS7700, which action does a client need to take for the existing virtual volumes to be encrypted after the encryption feature is enabled?
An encryption policy configuration is the set of rules, or policies, that specify which volumes are to be encrypted.

Question No : 7
A customer wants to replace its legacy block storage environment with a new IBM FlashSystem A9000R solution and is concerned about properly estimating consolidated storage capacity after deduplication and compression savings.
Which tool should be used?
Data Reduction Estimator tool is a command-line host-based utility for estimating the data reduction saving on block devices.
In order to help with the profiling and analysis of existing user workloads that need to be migrated to a new system, IBM provides a highly accurate data reduction estimation tool which supports both deduplicationand compression. The tool operates by scanning target workloads on any legacy storage array (IBM or 3rd party) and then merging all scan results to provide an integrated system level data reduction estimate.
Question No : 8
A customer’s compliance department requires that data is kept for ten years. The data must be available as needed, and the customer must ensure that the data cannot be modified.
Which technology should the specialist recommend?
Write-once, read-many (WORM) tape cartridge characteristic. WORM format pervades the entirety of every WORM cartridge. The WORM tape media is formatted to give every block on a WORM cartridge write-once, read-many protection. Additionally, the cartridge memory (CM) has a WORM indicator byte in the cartridge type field.
Question No : 9
A cloud service provider is looking to provide a scalable solution that provides quality of service capabilities, ease of management, deduplication, and integration with OpenStack and VMware while providing sub-millisecond response time.
Which solution should the technical specialist recommend?
IBM FlashSystem A9000 can use the well-established IBM code base for OpenStack and REST API support.
IBM Spectrum Control Base V3.0 allows a simplified deployment and efficient integration of IBM FlashSystem A9000 with the VMware vCloud suite.
The FlashSystem A9000R data reduction node implements data deduplication and compression functions.
A9000 provides consistent and predictable microsecond response times and simplicity that you need.

Question No : 10
A mainframe customer us considering moving from a native tape environment to a virtualized environment across two sites. A study has shown that it needs more than one IBM TS7700 at each site for performance and capacity reasons.
What is the benefit of using IBM TS7700 hybrid grid?
All TS7700 models can coexist in a grid. If only a disk and a tape-attached model are combined, that configuration is called a hybrid grid.
Question No : 11
A customer is interested in purchasing an IBM TS7650G ProtecTIER Gateway for its production site and one for replication at its DR site. The DR site is a target only site.
How is the cost of the solution affected by the replication?
You must have a license for the replication feature for each ProtecTIER server in the replication grid.
Question No : 12
Which statement correctly applies to PRO and Copy Data Services?
Consistency groups creates a consistent point-in-time copy of multiple volumes, with negligible host impact. You can enable FlashCopy consistency groups from the DS CLI.
Note: Recovery Point Objective (RPO) describes the interval of time that might pass during a disruption before the quantity of data lost during that period exceeds the Business Continuity Plan’s maximum allowable threshold or “tolerance.”
Question No : 13
Which feature of a base IBM XIV system is a technical advantage over competitive storage arrays?
Uniquely among IBM products, the XIV Storage System offers hot encryption. When encryption is enabled on the XIV system, all data that resides on it is encrypted within minutes, with no performance impact.

Question No : 14
A customer has experienced a high rate of drive failure and loss of data in its environment and is considering IBM XIV to replace the existing storage.
Which IBM XIV benefit should the technical specialist hightlight to the customer?
When an IBM XIV disk fails, all disks in the system participate in the rebuild. The outcome? It takes less time for theXIV system to restore full redundancy. For example, if a disk on a fully used 1 TB drive system fails, XIV restores full redundancy in an average of 30 minutes or less, and without a significant performance penalty. Traditional RAID systems might take up to a day to restore data reliability, with performance compromised during rebuild. The fast XIV rebuild time means that your data spends less time that is exposed to risk. In this way, the XIV system actually protects your data more than traditional enterprise storage systems can.
Question No : 15
A customer wants to storage system solution with proactive system health management. The customer has asked about advantages that the IBM FlashSystem A9000R offers.
Which feature should the technical specialist discuss?
IBM FlashSystem A9000R also incorporates autonomic and proactive monitoring and self-healing features. These features enable preventive measures to preserve data redundancy before a component malfunction occurs.
