Abstract: Database systems such as Microsoft SQL Server are often a company's most critical application, storing both internal data and vital customer information. The impact of a database going offline can be severe in terms of lost data, productivity and customer relations. The ability to back up and restore SQL server data quickly and reliably is vital to minimizing downtime. Equally important is the data assurance that comes from reliable and easily managed storage, backed by advanced and proven technology and features.

The IBM Storwize V7000 solution provides an advanced modular storage system with the ability to virtualize external SAN-attached storage as well as its own internal storage. The IBM Storwize V7000 solution is built on the proven IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC) platform and utilizes cutting edge technology from the IBM DS8000® enterprise class storage family.
