Using an IBM System Storage N series with VMware to Facilitate Storage and Server Consolidation

An IBM Redpaper publication



Abstract

The benefits of VMware are uniquely complemented by IBM System Storage N series storage solutions. Using IBM N series technology, storage can be consolidated onto one or a few storage systems accessed across Fibre Channel SANs or regular IP networks. This dramatically simplifies storage provisioning, increases asset utilization, and allows a company to take advantage of IBM N series data protection and disaster recovery functionality. This paper describes the real-world experiences of a customer that reduced its server count 50% and implemented a tapeless storage infrastructure using VMware and IBM N series solutions.
