How does it work?
IBM Spectrum Virtualize, previously IBM San Volume Controller (SVC), is a storage virtualization system for centralized infrastructure management. It makes it possible to work with all storage environments, irrespective of brand, as a single system, providing a clear overview and improving space utilization.
With IBM Spectrum Virtualize (SVC), you can remove an application's physical association with disk storage. This allows for better availability since changes in the physical infrastructure do not affect applications. Data becomes optimized:
- Data can be moved around as needed without disturbing operations
- Administration of overall disk capacity as a pool increases efficiency
- Replication and creation of flash copies from many different types of disk systems
- Data is stored according to importance and is accessible when needed
Monitoring IBM Spectrum Virtualize
Monitor virtual storage by defining a wide range of service level agreements and warnings concerning configuration errors, performance problems, SAN problems, and capacity. Gain an overview of workloads, if any, via visual graphics showing performance and capacity history for the main storage resources.
