I'm excited about the VAAI support on the XIV, I've been waiting on that for several months. The offline initialization will come in handy as well. <div>&nbsp;</div> However, I was disappointed to see that the new XIV MSCS agent still doesn't support async mirroring - that was something I'd been led to believe was coming soon.

Has VAAI support been released for SVC as well? If not, do we have an ETA?

Dennis, <br /> No, we have not yet announced VAAI support for SVC. I am not allowed to give out futures, roadmaps, prices or specific dates. Will you settle for "soon"? If not, please contact your local IBM Sales Rep who can brief you under NDA. <br /> -- Tony

Thanks, Tony. I understand the NDA issue. I just kept hearing 1Q2011, so I was hoping I had just missed the announcement somewhere.
