The IBM® Redbooks® publication, IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller and Storwize V7000 Best Practices and Performance Guidelines, SG21-7521-03, covers many aspects of implementing compression. This IBM Redbooks Solution Guide complements that publication, provides a detailed review of various workloads and use cases, and serves as a best practices guide for IT professionals who have the tasks of sizing, planning, and implementing compression in IBM SAN Volume Controller and IBM Storwize® V7000. Its target audience also includes customers, IBM, and IBM Business Partners.
Use the following process when you plan or implement a project with IBM Real-time Compression™. Step-by-step implementation instructions are beyond the scope of this solution guide; those details are covered in other IBM Redbooks publications and product documentation. The intention of this solution guide is to provide high-level guidelines and considerations of an implementation that can lead to successful implementation of the solution itself.
