Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Copy Services Manager (CSM) for z Systems offers all the great the replication management technology in Tivoli Productivity Center Replication for z (TPC-R) and more.

CSM delivers support for the advanced copy services capabilities on the DS8000 and DS6000, in addition to the support for SAN Volume Controller, Storwize V7000, and XIV. This includes automating administration and configuration of these services, operational control (starting, suspending, resuming) of copy services tasks, and monitoring and managing the copy services sessions.

CSM supports Metro Mirror, FlashCopy®, and Global Mirror on the DS8000 and SAN Volume hardware platforms. Advanced disaster recovery functions are also supported with failover/failback (planned and unplanned) from a primary site to a disaster recovery site. CSM also can monitor the performance of the copy services that provide a measurement of the amount of replication and the amount of time that is required to complete the replication operations. Additionally, CSM supports multi-target for both Metro Mirror and Global mirror, with practice capability. CSM Basic Edition for z Systems enables HyperSwap® on z/OS®, which allows the management of disk replication services using an intuitive GUI on z/OS systems.

By using CSM for copy services management on the IBM DS storage devices, for example, tasks that took up to five steps can be accomplished in just one. The practice session in CSM enables you to test your disaster recovery environment without interfering with daily operations. This means you can run a practice session before you perform the actual action. CSM also improved functionality to support over 200 Global Mirror sessions to help your data mining efforts.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM CSM for z Systems is a replication management solution based on TPC-R technology that delivers central control of your replication environment using simplified and automated complex replication tasks. Using CSM, you can coordinate copy services on IBM Storage including DS8000, DS6000, SVC, Storwize V7000, and XIV. Additionally, you can help prevent errors and increase system continuity using source and target volume matching, site awareness, disaster recovery testing, and standby management. CSM improves upon the functionality offered in TPC-R with multi-target support for Metro Mirror and Global Mirror with practice capability and support for over 200 Global Mirror sessions.

CSM is simple to use, reduces the number of steps required for many copy services management activities, and has many added benefits over other replication methods. Commands are efficient and easy to understand. An active and a standby server can be set up to enable server redundancy. You can define default port pairings for logical paths on DS8000 Storage Systems. Progress reports of the copies within the sessions are available within reports. You can help insure visibility by setting up recovery point objective (RPO) warnings and severe threshold alerts. The RPO data can be exported in csv format for easy analysis.

Safety features are built-in with CSM. This includes prompts or warnings before an action is executed, defined user roles to help prevent unapproved actions, volume protection capability, and site awareness to help prevent incorrect hardware relationships.

CSM is well-integrated with z Systems. The server function runs in a z address space. You can use FICON® for FICON-attached volumes without a TCP/IP connection when the system mover is present (TCP/IP can be used for non-FICON attached volumes). Hardened freeze support ensures consistency can be maintained for a Metro Mirror session even when there is loss of access to the CSM server. So the z Systems storage administrator can monitor both mainframe (ECKD™) DASD volumes and non-mainframe (FBA) disk volumes.

CSM provides the ability to manage HyperSwap, Metro Mirror with HyperSwap, and Metro Global Mirror with HyperSwap when all primary and secondary devices are defined to z Systems with available paths. HyperSwap provides continuous availability by handling both a planned or an unplanned automatic swap of I/O requests from the primary to secondary site for Metro Mirror pairs. Operator interaction is not required making this nondisruptive to the application. Basic is an entitled version of CSM on z Systems for HyperSwap continuous availability support without disaster recovery capabilities. Metro Mirror with HyperSwap and Metro Global Mirror with HyperSwap support adds in disaster recovery capabilities along with the high availability of HyperSwap in both a two- and three-site solution. Once CSM loads the configuration, swap by command or event can be managed directly from z Systems. The same IOS component handles the actual swap as with IBM Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex™ (GDPS®). This HyperSwap is coordinated across the sysplex and can also be managed through CSM from a remote server.

By using CSM for your copy services management, you can help reduce your workload through less commands and improve safety through pre-command execution warnings and user roles. The integration of CSM with z systems and support for metro Mirror, Global Mirror, and HyperSwap help ensure your replication is managed in a single place and in an efficient manner.
