Implementing the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller with IBM Spectrum Virtualize V8.1
Software Defined Storage

Redbooks, published 27 Feb 2018, last updated 28 Feb 2018

This IBM® Redbooks publication is a detailed technical guide to the IBM System Storage® SAN Volume Controller, which is powered by IBM Spectrum™ Virtualize V8.1. IBM SAN Volume Controller is a virtualization appliance solution that maps virtualized volumes that are visible to hosts and applications to physical volumes on storage devices. Each server within the storage area network (SAN) has its own set of virtual storage addresses that are mapped to physical addresses. If the physical addresses change, the server continues running by using the same virtual addresses that it had before. ... [more]

IBM Spectrum Virtualize: Hot-Spare Node and NPIV Target Ports
Software Defined Storage

Redpaper, published 19 Jan 2018

The use of N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) to provide host-only ports (NPIV target ports) and spare nodes improves the host failover characteristics by separating out host communications from communication tasks on the same port and providing standby hardware, which can be automatically introduced into the cluster to reintroduce redundancy. Because the host ports are not used for internode communications, they can freely move between nodes, and this includes spare nodes that are added to the cluster automatically. This IBM® Redpaper™ publication describes the use of the IBM Spectrum™ ... [more]
