The XIV storage product uses a very unique architecture to balance data and I/O across all physical resources, like disk drives, CPUs, and memories, within the storage system. From the XIV architecture, some advantages for complex SAP and database environments are quite obvious e.g. the development of a volume layout that is required for other storage systems to allocate database space would not be required for XIV. Furthermore XIV delivers continuous stable IO performance and the ability to do instant snapshots without significant impact to performance for the Backup and Restore of the SAP applications. This paper describes the benefits, features and best practices using a XIV in a SAP environment.
