Exploding storage growth is the biggest problem faced by storage administrators and giving many a sleepless night forcing them to figure out ways to reduce storage and thus control costs. While thin hardware provides the capability to reduce storage, for the most part its storage reduction remains limited because of lack of information at the array level. Veritas Storage Foundation helps admins get the most of their thin hardware by utilizing the intelligence of the file system to make thin provisioning better.

Veritas Storage Foundation helps admins to get thin and stay thin across disparate hardware. It's Smartmove feature helps admins to move data  to thin capable hardware, while its thin reclamation feature helps them keep data growth ini control on an ongoing basis.

 In this white paper "Thin reclamation for the IBM XIV Storage System and IBM Storwize V7000 using Veritas Storage Foundation Enterprise HA" IBM", IBM Systems and Technology Group ISV Enablement discusses how to install, configure and provide thin solutions with Veritas Storage Foundation from Symantec on the IBM XIV and IBM Storewise storage to help rein in storage costs.
