Migrate data sets immediately without disrupting applications in IBM z/OS mainframe environments

Highlights

Many IT organizations want to take advantage of the large-capacity volumes on today’s more cost-effective, high-performance storage subsystems, but are faced with complex and disruptive data migrations that negatively impact their business applications. Because data conversion onto large volumes is time-consuming and can involve long application outages, IT specialists across organizations recognize the need for tools that can help them move data with greater flexibility, efficiency and reliability at a lower cost while also enabling greater responsiveness to a dynamic marketplace.

IBM z/OS® Data Set Mobility Facility (zDMF) delivers a data migration solution that is nondisruptive during migration and can help reduce your overall storage costs—regardless of vendor or disk capacity. The IBM host-based software is designed to move critical, allocated mainframe data sets almost immediately, helping ensure applications remain online and available.
