Just got our new IBM Storwize V3700 unit in today. Isn’t she sexy?!
This is a video I took using my Samsung S5 of the startup of the V3700. Loud. Kickass. What more could I ask for? Maybe the SSD drives that will be arriving Monday… If you listen closely, you can hear the IBM wind when it kicks into warp speed mode.
I’ve never experienced system initialization like with this V3700. A USB drive is provided which contains a pre-configuration application. I ran through the installer and configured the IPv4 address for the server and then inserted the USB drive into a USB port on the left canistor.
Here are some screenshots of the system initialization software in case you’re curious.
Post Initialization – Web Access Setup
The web interface is interesting to say the least. It seems fast and responsive using Google Chrome latest release. These are screenshots of the setup wizard after initialization.
Web Management Interface
The interface is pretty awesome. Lots to explore within it. Here are some screenshots of some of the top-level items on the interface.
