Want my XIV Visio stencils? You got em…

One of the more common themes I blog about is the demand for Visio Stencils.    In this regard I have some more good news.

Firstly the VisioCafe site has an updated IBM-Disk stencil set with the following additions:

IBM-SystemStorage-Disk.vss – Added EXP5060 Front, Front Open and Rear Views
– Added DS8x00 Cabinet Rear Views

Secondly, I have started using the collections function on the IBM developerWorks site to share my files with the public.  To this end I have posted a collection of all the standard Visio documents I use to build XIV Solution Designs.   You can find them here.

They tend to use two basic building blocks, which are the Fibre Channel patch panel and the iSCSI patch panel.   For instance this is what the iSCSI patch panel Visio diagram looks like:

And this is an example of what a Fibre Channel Visio diagram looks like.

Your free to use any of my diagrams for any purpose you like.   If you have suggestions, comments or donations, please feel free to share.   The link again is here.

    • I would like to say that its a protest against SOPA, but it looks like a bug.
      Thanks for letting me know, I will follow it up.

      • Curious. Problem only occurs in Chrome. I switched to Firefox and downloads work fine.
        I checked with dW support and they are telling me that right now they don’t support Chrome and won’t until they upgrade some of the backend software.
        Can you try downloading with Firefox?

    you’re right chrome failed on me

    thanks a lot

    • I have added warning when you hover over the link to developerWorks that Chrome may not work.
      This should be resolved when they upgrade the version of Lotus Connections being used by dW at the moment.
      Sorry for the grief and thanks for letting me know.
