Abstract: Epic recommends using V7000 incremental FlashCopy for production backup. FlashCopy resynchronization consumes the unit’s write cache so it’s essential to ensure that there is adequate cache for both the base workload as well as the FlashCopy. Factors such as the number of V7000 control enclosures and the number of storage pools/mdiskgroups in use affect the amount of available cache.
