IBM XIV Storage System with the Virtual I/O Server and IBM i

An IBM Redpaper publication

Abstract

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication explains how you can connect the IBM XIV® Storage System server to the IBM i operating system through the Virtual I/O Server (VIOS). A connection through the VIOS is especially of interest to IT centers that have many small IBM i partitions. When using the VIOS, the Fibre Channel host adapters can be installed in the VIOS and shared by many IBM i clients by using virtual connectivity to the VIOS.

This paper also includes guidance for sizing XIV logical unit numbers (LUNs) when attached to the IBM i client.
