The ThinkSystem supports Intelligent Real-time Tiering capabilities that help optimize system performance, reduce costs, and simplify management. The base software includes the ability to move data dynamically between SAS HDDs that are optimized for cost per IOPS and NL SAS HDDs that are optimized for cost per GB. With the optional software license, the DS2200 supports hybrid tiering across HDDs and SSDs. The ThinkSystem offers the flexible choice of 12 Gb SAS, 1/10 Gb iSCSI, and 4/8/16 Gb Fibre Channel (FC) host connectivity protocols. The Converged Network Controller (CNC) design of the DS2200 makes the selection of iSCSI or FC host connectivity as simple as attaching corresponding transceivers or Direct-Attach Copper (DAC) cables to the SFP/SFP+ ports on the controller module. The ThinkSystem supports battery-free cache protection, which reduces maintenance costs and provides permanent backup of unwritten cache data if there is a power failure.
