Key functions conducted within the DASD
for Homeland Security Integration are melded into the other two DASDs
responsible for homeland defense matters, and this "DASD
-ship" is disestablished.
This means that an agent could distinguish the difference between a high-end DASD
storage facility, a Fibre Channel switch, high-end virtual tape server, or other resource.
I/O Plus is a GUI-based tool that measures DASD
I/O requests, cache, channel paths, and back-end I/O.
The StorageGUARD products monitor, trend and control DASD
space consumption to increase DASD
utilization and lower data center management costs.
This is accomplished by combining the beneficial characteristics of RAID, CAID (cached array of independent disks) and virtual DASD
As a result, both DASD
and CPU utilization have improved
zDASD uses open-system storage for mainframe DASD
applications providing cost-conscious IT administrators with lower cost open-systems arrays for their secondary or tertiary storage needs," said Ralph Armstrong, Vice President of Product Management.
Direct-to-tape backup lets users take advantage of less expensive mainframe tape without DASD
The project resulted in a set of inventory reports listing all software components and the associations between them, exception reports listing missing components, usage reports showing active and non-active components, and the associated DASD
StopX37/II, which provides dynamic abend recovery, taking corrective actions to prevent DASD
LUMINEX also certifying INNOVATION's FDRPAS as a V/B 3390 solution for non-disruptive installation and real time replication of existing mainframe DASD
storage data to V/B 3990-based DASD
