IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller software is delivered preinstalled on SAN Volume Controller Storage Engines so it is quickly ready for implementation once the engines are attached to your storage area network (SAN). SAN Volume Controller Storage Engines are based on proven IBM System x server technology and are always deployed in redundant pairs, which are designed to deliver very high availability.

At a time when IT budgets are under tremendous pressure yet requirements to store data are growing inexorably, the need to focus on improving storage efficiency is greater than ever. SAN Volume Controller deploys technologies in concert to deliver extraordinary levels of storage efficiency, including thin provisioning and IBM Real-time Compression. IBM Real-time Compression is designed to improve efficiency enabling you to store up to five times as much data in the same physical disk space by compressing data as much as 80 percent. Unlike other approaches to compression, IBM Real-time Compression is designed to be used with active primary data such as production databases and e-mail systems, which dramatically expands the range of candidate data that can benefit from compression. By significantly reducing storage requirements, you can keep more information online, use the improved efficiency to reduce storage costs, or achieve a combination of greater capacity and reduced cost.

Server virtualization helps speed provisioning of server images because provisioning becomes a software operation rather than requiring hardware changes. Similarly, provisioning with SAN Volume Controller is achieved with software and thin provisioning, and is designed to become an almost entirely automated function. Without SAN Volume Controller, server provisioning could be slowed by the need to provision storage.

The SAN Volume Controller FlashCopy snapshot replication function is designed to dramatically reduce storage requirements when copying data by using additional physical storage only for the differences between source and target and not for the entire target volume capacity. This capability can be used to help reduce storage requirements for test environments that are copied from production data. For example, SAP users often maintain multiple copies of production data for testing. Using the FlashCopy snapshot replication function to maintain these test environments can help significantly reduce the amount of physical storage required.
