Abstract: There are many options available for migrating data from one storage system to another. This white paper describes two methods of data migration from legacy storage to IBM XIV Storage System in an SAP environment. The first method describes a procedure for data migration in conjunction with a volume layout change such as logical unit number (LUN) consolidation. A reason for LUN consolidation can be that it might help to gain more advantage of the XIV Storage System architecture. The second method describes the embedded XIV migration feature that enables the easy movement of data from an existing storage system to the XIV Storage System.
