SAN Volume Controller (SVC) V7 Planning and Implementation Workshop (SNV1G)



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


  • Introduction to Storage Networking (SN700)
  • or have equivalent experience
  • and understand the basic concepts of open systems disk storage systems and I/O operations


  • 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
  • Use interfaces provided by the Subsystem Device Driver (SDD) to monitor and manage SDD multi-path I/O access and path management
  • Implement point-in-time copies across the SVC cluster using FlashCopy GUI presets
