SNV1 IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC) Planning and Implementation Workshop

Displaying courses for United States [Change]


Leverage networked storage connectivity by integrating a layer of intelligence - the SAN Volume Controller (SVC) - to facilitate storage application data access independence from storage management functions and requirements ...and more.


  • Create an implementation task list to integrate the SVC solution into the storage network fabric
  • Establish or update zoning policies to enable the SVC to control storage device access and facilitate storage provisioning to host servers
  • Utilize SVC user interfaces to manage the networked storage environment, assign storage to servers, migrate data, replicate data across storage systems, and monitor storage access activities
  • Assess issues related to coexistence between the SVC and native disk storage access across host servers
  • Migrate existing data to the virtualized SVC environment
  • Implement SVC storage efficiency solutions including Easy Tier, Thin Provisioning, Volume Mirroring, and Real-time Compression
  • Implement data replication services including FlashCopy and Remote Copy


This intermediate course is for: Individuals who are assessing and/or planning to deploy storage network virtualization solutions
