We're pleased to announce the release of the new IBM DS8000 Storage Replication Adapter version - 2.3.1. As you know, IBM DS8000 Storage Replication Adapter is a software add-on that integrates with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) solution. It enables SRM to perform failovers together with IBM DS8000 storage systems.
This release brings the following new features:
- Adding support for the Extent Space Efficient (ESE) volumes, offering customers an option of producing an ESE volume when SRA creates flash copies.
- Removing the GM Flashcopy on the source site after successful re-protect. This prevents consumption of the pool capacity at the source site and improves overall system efficiency.
In addition, version 2.3.1 introduces support of the all-new member of the DS8000 family, DS8880 (v.8.0), enhancing its industry-leading disaster recovery capabilities.
