What is a storage group?
A storage group can refer to many different things and is used by different vendors to mean various functions. For example, in the context of ILM and tiered storage, a storage group could refer to a tier, class, or level of storage such as online, near-line, offline. A virtual storage group could be a collection of LUNs, also known as a pool of storage, presented by a storage virtualization aggregation appliance or storage subsystem. A storage group could also be a reference to a host storage group that refers to which servers are associated with which groups of storage. As you can see, storage groups can be used and refer to many different things depending upon the context that it is used. Hope that helps, if you have more of a context of where or how it is used, I can perhaps give you a better description.
