Disaster Recovery requirements are getting stricter, and mirroring virtual tape is not easy.
This webinar discusses the best practices for managing your replicated tape environment, with particular focus on IBM TS7700 and Oracle VSM environments, so you can properly monitor the performance of your z/OS Tape infrastructure and prevent performance problems before they occur.
This webinar will help you:
- Understand peak replicated works
- Ensure you have enough bandwidth between (end of batch and online)
- Understand differences in how you manage this between Oracle and IBM
- Understand the measurement between Oracle and IBM (Deferred Queue Age) Oracle (Exposure Time)
- Understand inbound and outbound data rate
IBM TS7700 Performance Areas:
- IBM Health Checks Top Things to Look at
- Replication (Time delayed deferred copy, deferred copy, synchronous)
- Stuck Tapes
- Dormant Cluster (queues grow and no workload is getting done)
- Throughput (Important to know what the desired workload is matching required ports/channels) – make sure hardware matches workload requirements
- Host Write and Copy Throttle
- RPO – How old is the tape?
Oracle VSM Performance Areas:
- Oracle Health Check Top Things to Look at
- Replication types (Synch and Asynch)
- Interfaces for Hardware
- Network problems and mis-configurations

IBM z15 Announcement Highlights and How to Take Advantage
The z15 (with a General Availability date of 9/23/2019) offers up to 190 CPU cores (vs. 170 on z14) and 40 TB of usable memory (vs. 32 on z14), in addition to processor cache and overall performance improvements.
CPU – Just the Tip of the z/OS Iceberg
z/OS is now responsible for everything from online transactions, network traffic, replicated data, and so much more. The infrastructure to handle this complexity is no longer limited to ensuring CPU is going to be okay.
Experience firsthand the deepest visibility into your z/OS systems, processors, network, disk and tape environments. Whether you’re in the early stages of product research, evaluating competitive solutions, or trying to solve a problem, we’re happy to help you get the information you need to move forward with your IT initiatives.
