This IBM® Redpaper™ describes preferred practices for attaching the IBM XIV® Storage
System, Gen3, to either an IBM System Storage® SAN Volume Controller (SVC) or IBM
Storwize® Version 7000 virtual storage. It also explains what to consider in XIV Storage
System data migration when you use it in combination with SVC or Storwize V7000 storage.

This information is based on the assumption that you have SVC or Storwize V7000 and that
you are replacing back-end disk controllers with a new XIV system or adding an XIV as a new
managed disk controller.
