This IBM® Redbooks® publication explains how to configure and manage independent disk pool (IASP) functionality of IBM i 6.1. It is designed to help IBM technical professionals, business partners, and customers understand and implement independent disk pools in the IBM i 6.1.
In addition, this publication provides the background information that is necessary to plan, implement, and customize this functionality to your particular environment. It provides guidance on running user applications with either application data or most application objects residing in an independent disk pool. Considering that you can also use independent disk pools in a cluster environment, this publication shows you the basic steps to make your independent disk pool switchable between two Power Systems servers or a single server with multiple LPARs.
Independent auxiliary storage pools have many business and technical advantages for Power Systems using IBM i. Not only are independent auxiliary storage pools (IASPs) easy to create and maintain, most applications can use them by simple work management changes. IASPs can provide immediate benefits to your enterprise.
