Component Description

Component Description

This section provides the detailed illustration and description for each component.

System Subrack

The system subrack houses a midplane that provides reliable connections for interface modules and distributes power and signals to inner modules.

Appearance
Figure 4-58 shows the appearance of a system subrack.
Figure 4-58  System subrack

Controller

A controller is the core component of a storage system. It processes storage services, receives configuration management commands, saves configuration data, connects to disk enclosures, and saves critical data onto coffer disks.

NOTE:

Each controller houses one or more disks as the data coffer disk that stores three types of data: cache data requiring power failure protection, OceanStor OS system data, and system configuration information and logs.

Appearance

Figure 4-59 shows the appearance of a controller. Figure 4-60 shows the front view of a controller.

BBU

A BBU provides backup power for a storage system during an external power failure, protecting the integrity of service data. When the external power supply is normal, BBUs are standby. In the event of a power failure, BBUs provide power for the storage system. A faulty BBU can be isolated without affecting the normal running of the storage system. If a power failure occurs, BBUs ensure that the storage system writes cached data to the built-in disks of the controllers, preventing data loss. After the external power supply resumes, the driver reads data from the built-in disks of the controllers to the cache. In a system using the lithium batteries, the battery capacity is updated and detected by charging and discharging the batteries. In this way, the problems can be detected in advance that the battery capacity attenuates, the batteries fail to meet the power backup requirements of the system, and thus the data backup fails when the batteries are not used for a long time. Then, the reliability of data protection upon the system power failure can be improved.

12 Gbit/s SAS Expansion Module

An expansion module provides expansion ports that are used for communication between a controller enclosure and a disk enclosure. The module transfers data between a controller enclosure and a disk enclosure.

A SAS interface module provides four 4 x 12 Gbit/s mini SAS HD expansion ports that provide connectivity to disk enclosures. The SAS interface module connects to the back-end storage array of the storage system through a mini SAS HD cable. When the transfer rate of the connected device is less than that of the expansion port, the expansion port automatically adjusts the transfer rate to that of the connected device to ensure the connectivity of the data transfer channel.
