IBM i storage technology has gone through a complete and thorough technology evolution just as the system has. This means very big technology changes under the covers. Running storage systems with modem Power Systemsis no longer simply a matter of attaching internal SCSI disks and depending on the built-in functionality of IBM i coupled with proprietary HA tools. Today, it's a matter of integration with SAN and NAS storage that everyone else uses as well, coupled with standard system software for copy services, HA and DR. So, it's time for a thorough review of the storage technologies available today. What does this mean to the average system i user? Should they be interested or worried? John Mascarenhas, IBM Canada's storage leader will walk us through a tutorial of what is happening in the storage world and what it means to you.
