We are pleased to let you know about our recently launched IBM Storage Host Software Solutions Information Center!
In this information center, or IC, you can find the relevant documentation of all the solutions that we offer, including information of both past versions and the latest versions.
Whether our host software solution is for XIV, DS8000, Storwize, or any other IBM storage system – the release notes, user guide, or installation guide are available on the IC in either PDF or HTML format (whatever suits you best).
The solutions are categorized on the navigation tree under four main categories: business continuity, management, host connectivity, and virtualization. Keep in mind, however, that some solutions could belong in more than one category. For example, a solution such as IBM Storage Management Console for VMware vCenter is placed under the virtualization category, but it may also be regarded as a powerful management solution. For another example, our XIV and SVC adapters for VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager, also placed under virtualization, may also be regarded as business continuity solutions.
In any case, we hope that the organization of our solutions on the IC makes sense to you, and that the information is helpful. If not, please let us know! You can use the online feedback form that is available on the IC.
Each solution has its own welcome page from which you can have quick access to the information of the available versions. The PDF publications are available on the Publications page of each solution.
If you'd like to see our list of solutions per independent software vendor (ISV), check out the Solutions by ISV page. Alternatively, to see which solutions are available for a specific IBM storage system, check out the Solutions by storage system page.
And, of course, the IC is regularly being updated and improved. You can always check what's new on the IC by visiting the What's new page.
Lastly, we would like to thank our Information Development team for making it happen.
