Organizations are struggling with an unprecedented surge in data, both user-created and machine-created. With an increasing reliance on this rapidly growing data, effective scaling of data storage represents a key challenge for all enterprises.
IBM® Hyper-Scale helps you easily overcome provisioning scenarios that normally challenge traditional systems. IBM Hyper-Scale can accommodate several critical client scenarios for centralized administration, data mobility, load balancing, over-provisioning, and storage system repurposing.
IBM Hyper-Scale introduces the following major concepts and technologies, with the IBM XIV® Storage System (Gen3 models):
This IBM Redpaper™ publication provides a broad understanding of the IBM Hyper-Scale feature. This publication is intended for XIV clients and users who want a practical understanding of IBM Hyper-Scale concepts and usage. For information about the IBM Hyper-Scale concepts, refer to the IBM white paper, IBM Hyper-Scale and Its Implementation in XIV Storage: A powerful new approach to scaling storage management.
