IBM XIV Cons

Sr. System Administrator at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
The change form synchronous mirroring to asynchronous (and vice versa) without reconfiguration from scratch would be helpful.
I encountered stability (performance) issues during enclosure or disk rebuild. Also some power supply issues due to malfunctions of ​circuits. Sometimes "internal" Snap sessions hang and consume pool capacity.
