XIV Release 3.1 materials – including a really cool video

If you are interested in the current state of play with XIV, there are a huge number of new resources that have been created or updated as part of the XIV 3.1 update, so I thought I would give you a list.   If you are a customer then please scan down to see if there is anything here that interests you.  If you an IBMer or IBM Business Partner (or IBM competitor!), this is all mandatory reading.   Either way,  check out the new YouTube video, it is very cool.

New!   XIV – VMware solution brief

New!   XIV – Asynchronous mirroring white paper   (link should be live very soon)

Updated!   XIV – Performance white paper (updated with SSD information)   (link should be added very soon)

XIV Cloud white paper

XIV Hyper-V white paper

IDC analyst report:  XIV as Tier 1

ITG analyst report: TCO comparison: XIV and EMC VMAX/VMAXe

XIV-related case studies

A hot off-the-press walk-thru demo, of the XIV GUI

As promised here is the new video on YouTube that shows the new XIV iPhone App!

I just checked the Apple App Store and cannot see the application yet (only the iPad version).  I will update you the moment the iPhone version becomes available for download (and yes it will have a demo mode).

For more XIV related materials (white papers, demos, videos, case studies…), I invite you to pop over to the XIV area of the ibm web site: ibm.com/storage/disk/xiv. You’ll find  links to materials throughout, such as the SPC report and ISV white papers; click on the Resources tab for a consolidated list of the most recent materials.

Finally, the official announcement letters for version 11.1 and 10.2.4e of the XIV software (which enables all the new functions) are here and here.

    The iPhone app is in an upload process to the app store and will be there during February.

    Since the mirroring white paper is still not up, any chance async mirroring is supported for MSCS clustering now?
