Abstract: This white paper covers IBM Storwize family systems and IBM Spectrum Virtualize software support for Microsoft Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX). This feature was introduced with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 to enhance large file transfers on supported storage systems. Support for ODX on Storwize family products is now included in Spectrum Virtualize software 7.5, which is the new code base for the Storwize family and IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller (SVC) systems. ODX frees up server and network resources by handling copy tasks at the storage level directly.
