Learn Best Practices for Optimal z/OS Virtual Tape Infrastructure Performance

 

email iconGet Notified of Upcoming Webinars

Ensuring performance and proper operation of the z/OS virtual tape infrastructure is mission-critical.

It is a tier of less expensive storage for mainframe jobs, but it also provides secure and reliable offline storage for “air-gap” data protection from malware, ransomware, internal and external threats, human errors, and natural disasters.

This webinar will show:

  • how to automatically identify z/OS virtual tape infrastructure operation risks and issues
  • how to more quickly understand and resolve issues
  • best practices for your tape and tape replication infrastructure
  • demonstrations using the logical tape workload data, hardware utilization data, and tape catalog data
