FlexVol is storage-virtualisation technology that you can use to lower your overhead, avoid capital expenses, and reduce disruption and risk.
FlexVol pools physical storage, so you can create and resize virtual volumes as your application needs change.
By using FlexVol, you can improve - even double - the utilisation of your existing storage and save the expense of acquiring more disk space. You can also improve I/O performance and reduce bottlenecks by distributing volumes across all available disk drives.
- Adapt quickly and easily to changing storage needs.
- Reduce your acquisition costs through “just-in-time” storage with built-in thin provisioning.
- Add storage when and where you need it without disruption.
- Size and resize volumes dynamically and automatically, according to policies.
- Double utilisation and improve performance.
