Storage Design for Business Continuity

Storage Policies

  • Storage policies for this presentation denote policies related to the AIX environment.

  • All systems boot from SAN and may or may not have an internal disk mirror.

  • All storage required by application and data storage is external to the server.

  • All Servers have redundant paths to the storage.

  • Root Volume Group mirrors may be accomplished by AIX or by the Storage Array.

  • Application Volume groups will rely on Storage Array internal redundancy in place of mirroring.

  • All NFS mounts should be presented by NAS devices

For assistance with designing, implementing, and supporting your storage systems in a business continuity design structure, please contact Mt Xia.
