This IBM® RedPaper discusses best practices for attaching the XIV® to IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC) or Storwize® V7000, as well as data migration considerations for XIV Storage System when used in combination with the SVC or Storwize V7000. It presumes that you have an existing SVC or Storwize V7000 and that you are replacing back-end disk controllers with a new XIV or simply adding an XIV as a new managed disk controller.
The combination of SVC or Storwize V7000 and XIV allows a client to benefit from the high-performance grid architecture of the XIV while retaining the business benefits delivered by the SVC or Storwize V7000
