IBM Hyper-Scale in XIV Storage

IBM® Hyper-Scale helps you easily overcome provisioning scenarios that normally challenge traditional systems. IBM Hyper-Scale can accommodate several critical customer scenarios for data mobility, load balancing, over-provisioning, and storage system repurposing.

IBM Hyper-Scale introduces three major concepts and technologies, with the IBM XIV® Storage System (Gen3 models):
– The first is IBM Hyper-Scale Manager, a flexible, consolidated multi-system management application that was originally released in October 2012 as “Multi-System Manager”. IBM Hyper-Scale Manager is based on and seamlessly integrated with the XIV GUI and spans multiple XIV systems. It enables customers to centrally manage up to 144 XIV systems.

– The second technology, IBM Hyper-Scale Mobility, was released in June 2013. It is a powerful function for moving volumes between storage containers transparently, with no disruption to host applications.

– The third technology, IBM Hyper-Scale Consistency was released with the IBM XIV Storage Software Version 11.4. It offers cross-system Consistency enabling coordinated snapshots across independent XIV systems. It helps to ensure data protection across multiple XIV systems.

This IBM Redpaper™ publication provides a broad understanding of the IBM Hyper-Scale feature.
