  • © 2013 IBM Corporation10 IBM Power Systems Single Level Storage = Built-in Storage Management In IBM i, all storage is viewed as one large, contiguous, addressable space Storage management is integrated – Object/data placement is balanced based on the performance, capacity and type of storage devices – Storage may be dynamically and automatically rebalanced based on usage patterns – Support for storage innovations, such as Solid State Drives, can be integrated into storage management algorithms quickly IBM i clients typically do not require storage administrators Automated storage management simplifies operations and reduces costs Objects are stored/retrieved by name without regard to physical location, minimizing the need for administrators to manage storage infrastructure. Objects are stored/retrieved by name without regard to physical location, minimizing the need for administrators to manage storage infrastructure.

Or, Power-down system, perform a FlashCopy and IPL The performance impact on the production application during the save to tape operation is minimal since it is only influenced by the FlashCopy activity which is mostly confined within the Storage system. On IBM i V6R1 and later we can quiesce data to disk without power-down production system i This solution can be implemented together with Backup, Recovery and Media Services for (BRMS)
