Storwize V7000 now fully supports 10 enclosures

When IBM first released the Storwize V7000, we announced it was capable of supporting ten enclosures, but would on initial release support only five.    We stated that this restriction would be lifted in Q1.
The good news is that this restriction is indeed now lifted by the release of Storwize V7000 software version, which is available for download from here: Code

This new level also contains an additional enhancement which I think users will really like, called Critical Fix Notification.  The new Critical Fix Notification function enables IBM to warn Storwize V7000 and SVC users if we discover a critical issue in the level of code that they are using.  The system will warn users when they log on to the GUI using an internet connected web browser.   It works only if the browser being used to connect to the Storwize V7000 or SVC, also has access to the Internet.  (The Storwize V7000 and SVC systems themselves do not need to be connected to the Internet.)  The function cannot be disabled (which is a good thing) and each time we display a warning, it must be acknowledged (with the option to not warn the user again for that issue).
