With the ever-growing landscape of national, state, and local regulations, industry requirements, and increased security threats, ensuring the protection of an organization’s information is a key part of operating a successful business.
Encrypting data-at-rest is a key element when addressing these concerns. Most storage products offer encryption at an additional cost. IBM® XIV® Storage System, IBM FlashSystem® A9000, and IBM FlashSystem A9000R systems provide data-at-rest encryption at no charge. Clients can take advantage of encryption and still benefit from the lower total cost of ownership (TCO) that the IBM Spectrum™ Accelerate family offers.
This IBM Redpaper™ publication explains the architecture and design of the XIV and IBM FlashSystem A9000 and IBM FlashSystem A9000R encryption solution. Details are provided for configuring and implementing encryption.
