Disk Virtualisation

Make better use of existing storage without adding more complexity to the infrastructure with IBM System Storage® SAN Volume Controller (SVC) and IBM Storwize V7000. Ready for implementation once attached to your storage area network, SVC Storage Engines are based on proven IBM System x® server technology and are always deployed in redundant pairs.

Provisioning with SVC is achieved with software and thin provisioning and becomes an almost entirely automated function.  Support for VMware vCenter and vStorage APIs enables SVC to take on some storage-related tasks that were previously performed by VMware and is designed to support non-disruptive data migration between storage systems. Because SVC appears to servers as a single type of storage, virtual server provisioning is also simplified because only a single driver type is needed in server images, simplifying administration.

SVC functionality is also integrated into the IBM Storewize V7000.
