Pinned topic xiv remote mirror

‏2012-02-16T13:57:14Z |
Hi,all

I want to know that I can do remote mirror(sync or async) between Gen2 and Gen3, or not.

If the answer is "possible", is there any restriction??

regards,

    Kei,

    Look at this announcement letter Febr 7.

    For mirroring on previous XIV models, IBM XIV Storage System Software must be at 10.2.4.e and IBM XIV Storage System Gen3 Software must be at 11.1.

    TMasteen,

    I'd read the letter you show.

    I recognize there're a few differences between Gen3 and Gen2.
    (ex.the number of slices and so on.)

    How can Gen3 and Gen2 do remote mirror regardless of having number of slices??

    I want to know the architecture simply.

    regards,
