IBMAr SpectrumTM Accelerate, a member of the IBM Spectrum StorageTM, is an agile software-defined storage solution for enterprise and cloud that builds on the customer-proven and mature IBM XIVAr storage software. The key characteristic of Spectrum Accelerate is that it can be easily deployed and run on purpose-built or existing hardware chosen by the customer. IBM Spectrum Accelerate enables rapid deployment of high-performance and scalable block data storage infrastructure over commodity hardware, either on-premises or off-premises. This IBM RedbooksAr publication provides a broad understanding of IBM Spectrum Accelerate. The book introduces Spectrum Accelerate and discusses planning and preparation that are essential for a successful deployment of the solution. The deployment itself is explained through a step-by-step approach, using either a graphical user interface (GUI) based method or a simple command-line interface (CLI) based procedure. Subsequent chapters explain the logical configuration of the system, host support and business continuity functions, and migration. Although it makes many references to the XIV storage software, the book also emphasizes where IBM Spectrum Accelerate differs from XIV. Finally, a substantial portion of the book is dedicated to maintenance and troubleshooting to provide detailed guidance for the customer support personnel.There are two options for deploying the software package utility with IBM Spectrum Accelerate: Windows host A Windows host ...
