NOTES:
*Systems are based on dual clustered storage controllers. Divide all numbers by one-half if a single
storage controller system is ordered.
A single controller can be easily upgraded to a dual controller system as your computing needs increase.
The dual controller is a fully redundant system and is designed to provide failover and failback
capabilities.

Highlights
Manage storage volumes from a central point: SVC is designed to
enhance the flexibility of your storage environment. It can combine
the storage capacity from multiple disk systems from different suppliers into a single pool of storage that can be managed from a central
point. In this way, fewer skills are required and storage administrators
can become more productive.
● Virtually eliminate downtime related to storage: SVC enables data
migrations, maintenance and upgrades to the SVC system itself, and
changes to the physical storage without impacting host applications.
● Improve storage resource utilization: By combining the storage
capacity from multiple disk systems into a single pool, SVC uses
existing storage capacity more efficiently, which can allow you to
defer additional storage purchases to save costs.
● A single, cost-effective set of advanced copy services: SVC can
apply copy services across all the managed storage, regardless of the
disk system supplier. This capability helps simplify the environment,
can reduce the costs of implementing disaster recovery solutions,
increases flexibility in using storage and increases personnel
productivity.
● Create a tiered storage environment: Using virtualization technology, SVC enables customers to match the cost of the storage to the
value of their data. For example, mission-critical data can be stored
on high-performance, highly available Fibre Channel disks while nonmission-critical data can be stored on Serial ATA disks. Data can easily be moved from one tier to another without application disruption.
