IBM Spectrum Virtualize 8.4.2 just introduced support for volume mobility. Currently only a hand full of operating systems are supported - not including IBMi. We would like to have volume mobility supported for IBM i operating system as well.
A lot of customers already have IBM Power systems for DR purposes which would allow migrations from older Power servers to newer ones using live partition mobility - which means no downtime for applications. Depending on the implementation of IBM Spectrum Virtualize "volume mobility" it could help in online migrating volumes between storage systems - which means no downtime for applications when migrating to new storage systems.
