    IBM® Spectrum Virtualize and VMware's Virtual Volumes (VVols) are paving the way toward a true IBM Software Defined Environment (SDE). IBM Spectrum™ Virtualize is at the core of software-defined storage. The addition of VVols enables a fundamentally more efficient operational model for storage in virtualized environments, centering it around the virtual machine (VM) rather than the physical infrastructure.

    This IBM Redbooks® publication provides an overview of the VVols management framework and its implementation on storage systems managed by IBM Spectrum Virtualize™..
