As a #storage administrator you are asked to provide a capacity report across your entire storage environment to your CTO, in order to help the company make financial decisions on what storage needs to be purchased in the coming year.
A critical part of capacity reporting is understanding how much capacity is consumed by replication:
IBM Spectrum Control and its cloud counterpart, Storage Insights, has added new VDisk Mirrors and HyperSwap tabs on the Copy Data page. You are now able to analyze storage device relationships across your block storage environment to identify how redundancy is affecting available capacity.
You can easily identify all the VDisk mirror relationships on a Virtualize device.
The new enhanced display of VDisk mirror copies within the Volume tables makes it easier to understand the properties of the mirrors and identifies the volumes that have mirrors.
You can easily view master and auxiliary relationships for volumes, pools, and tiers for all HyperSwap relationships.
