Cloud Tiering and SVC 7, 8

    In my lab environment I have two CG 8s as a test for two DH 8s in production. I'm wanting to test out Cloud Tiering but I really don't want to do that in production and DH 8s just won't be possible for some time in the lab. Can I somehow tell the CG 8s to turn on Cloud Tiering anyway?

    Hi Lou - There is not way for a customer to bypass the requirement for DH8 or SV1 for TCT.  However, I did check and we have a demo facility where we can do a remote Storage Hands On Workshop (SHOW) that you could see how to set up and use TCT.  I know this is not as good as having a test environment in your shop but it is better than nothing if you don't have the correct nodes in your test environment.  You should be able to reach out to your storage CTS to set up the SHOW.  Feel free to email me if you want to discuss.
