Our company currently uses Hitachi HUS VM for storage for AIX LPARs. Now we are looking at a new P8 machine(s) to replace a boxes that houses a total of 10 IBM LPARs and the question came up, why don't we use storage in the Hitachi subsystem for this new box. The official Hitachi line is that HUS VM supports storage as presented to VIOS, but I can't find any confirmation that it supports NPIV to LUNs to IBM i LPARs. In addition, since the Hitachi subsystem here already has replication set up to our DR site, we could discontinue using iTERA for replication. Has anyone here used Hitachi storage to attach to IBM i and/or with replication? Any experience to share?
