Integrate Storwize V7000 into storage area
Leverage SAN storage connectivity by integrating a layer of intelligence - the IBM Storwize V7000 - to facilitate storage application data access independence from storage management functions and requirements. Focus on planning and implementation tasks associated with integrating the IBM Storwize V7000 into the storage area network. Exploit both internal storage of the IBM Storwize V7000 as well as SAN attached external heterogenous storage to centralize storage provisioning to both Fibre Channel and iSCSI host servers from common storage pools. Improve storage utilization effectiveness via thin provisioning. Implement storage tiering and optimize solid state drives (SSDs) usage with Easy Tier. Address backup recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives with FlashCopy technology. Facilitate the coexistence and migration of data from non-virtualized to the virtualized environment. Scale-out with a clustered Storwize V7000 system for capacity, throughput, and greater management efficiency.
This course covers the Storwize V7000 product but does not cover the features of the Storwize V7000 Unified product. These are covered in course IBM Storwize V7000 Unified Implementation Workshop (SSG00DE).
