Virtual volume tuning

HPE SSMC allows you to tune the user space and copy space of a virtual volume. It also allows you to change certain properties of a virtual volume by assigning it to a different common provisioning group. For example, you can change the device type and RAID type of a virtual volume by changing the common provisioning group in which the virtual volume is a member. Tuning a virtual volume does not interrupt host I/O to the virtual volume.

If the tuning of a virtual volume is interrupted due to a component failure or user-initiated cancellation, the tuning can be restarted, or the virtual volume can be rolled back to reestablish the properties it had before the tuning was started.

Tuning of virtual volumes on a storage system requires an HPE 3PAR Dynamic Optimization software license.
