IBM System Storage Solutions Handbook

Book Description

The IBM® System Storage® Solutions Handbook helps you solve your current and future data storage business requirements to achieve enhanced storage efficiency by design to allow managed cost, capacity of growth, greater mobility, and stronger control over storage performance and management. It describes the current IBM storage products, including IBM FlashSystem™, disk, and tape, and virtualized solutions, such as IBM Storage Cloud, IBM SmartCloud® Virtual Storage Center, and IBM Spectrum™ Storage.

This IBM Redbooks® publication provides overviews and pointers for information about the current IBM System Storage products, showing how IBM delivers the right mix of products for nearly every aspect of business continuance and business efficiency. IBM storage products can help you store, safeguard, retrieve, and share your data.

The following topics are covered:

  • Part 1 introduces IBM storage solutions. It provides overviews of the IBM storage solutions, including IBM Spectrum Storage™, IBM Storage Cloud, IBM SmartCloud Virtual Storage Center (VSC), and the IBM PureSystems® products.

  • Part 2 describes the IBM disk and flash products that include IBM DS Series (entry-level, midrange, and enterprise offerings), IBM XIV® storage, IBM Storwize® products, and the IBM FlashSystem offerings.

  • Part 3 is an overview of the IBM tape drives, IBM tape automation products, and IBM tape virtualization solutions and products.

  • Part 4 describes storage networking infrastructure, switches and directors to form storage area network (SAN) solutions, and converged networks and data center networking.

  • Part 5 describes the IBM storage software portfolio, including IBM SAN Volume Controller, IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager, Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, and IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager.

  • Part 6 describes the IBM z/OS® storage management software and tools.

  • The appendixes provide information about the High Performance Storage System (HPSS) and recently withdrawn IBM storage products.


  • This book is intended as a reference for basic and comprehensive information about the IBM Storage products portfolio. It provides a starting point for establishing your own enterprise storage environment.
