IBM Redbooks, Jul 22, 2013 - Computers - 52 pages
IBM® has announced certification of the Bridgeworks SANSlide Series 150 V7KSVC with its IBM System Storage® SAN Volume Controller, IBM Storwize® V7000, and Storwize V3700 virtualized storage systems. This combination of SANSlide and the Storwize V7000 system provides a powerful solution for clients who require efficient, IP-based replication over long distances.
This certification gives IBM Storwize V7000 clients a fully supported, transparent technology that includes unmatched levels of performance and reliability. With the SANSlide protocol acceleration technology, it is now possible to replicate data across continents in a cost-efficient way, with little or no loss in performance. At the same time, bandwidth utilization can improve to over 95%, instead of the 1% - 5% normally achieved in long-distance IP networks.
This IBM RedpaperTM publication shows the steps required to implement this solution efficiently and speedily.
