This IBM® Redpaper® publication provides a basic introduction to the IBM System Storage® N series, virtualization using the Virtual Storage Console (VSC) 2.0 in VMware vSphere 4.x environments. It explains how to use the Virtual Storage Console with VMware vSphere 4 environments and the benefits of doing so. Examples are given on how to install and set up VSC.The Virtual Storage Console, which is an significant N series software product that works with VMware.
VSC provides local backup and recovery capability. You have the option to replicate backups to a remote storage system by using SnapMirror relationships. Backups can be performed on individual virtual machines or on datastores with the option of updating the SnapMirror relationship as part of the backup on a per job basis. Similarly, restores can be performed at a data-store level or individual virtual machine level.
IBM System Storage N series in conjunction with VMware vSphere 4 helps complete the virtualization hierarchy by providing both a server and storage virtualization solution. Although this configuration can further assist with other areas of virtualization, networks, and applications, these areas of virtualization are not covered in detail in this paper.This is a companion IBM® Redpaper® to “IBM System Storage N series with VMware vSphere 4.1”, SG24-7636.
