IBM® Copy Services Manager is a replication management solution based on Tivoli® Productivity Center (TPC) technology that delivers central control of your replication environment while helping to simplify and automate complex replication tasks. Using Copy Services Manager, you can coordinate copy services on a variety of IBM Storage Systems, including DS8000®, SVC, Storwize® V7000, and XIV®. You can help prevent errors and increase system continuity using source and target volume matching, site awareness, disaster recovery testing, and standby management. Copy Services Manager improves upon the replication functionality offered in TPC:

  • Stand-alone installation for replication management
  • Multi-target support for Metro Mirror and Global Mirror with practice capability
  • Support for over 200 Global Mirror sessions
  • Supports purchase for open systems
  • HyperSwap® enabled for the Multi-target Metro Mirror/Global Mirror sessions
  • Support for DS8000 for LDAP
  • Migration support for old storage systems using multi-target
  • PowerHA® support

Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Copy Services Manager offers all of the great the replication management features of TPC with improved functionality.

Copy Services Manager delivers support for the advanced copy services capabilities on the DS8000, 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.

Copy Services Manager 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. Copy Services Manager 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. Copy Services Manager also supports multi-target for both Metro Mirror and Global mirror, with practice capability.

By using Copy Services Manager on IBM DS storage devices, tasks that took up to five steps can be accomplished in just one. The practice session in Copy Services Manager 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. Copy Services Manager also improved functionality to support over 200 Global Mirror sessions to help your data mining efforts.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM Copy Services Manager is a replication management solution based on TPC replication technology that delivers central control of your replication environment using simplified and automated complex replication tasks. Using Copy Services Manager, you can coordinate copy services on IBM Storage including DS8000, SVC, Storwize V7000, and XIV. You can also help prevent errors and increase system continuity using source and target volume matching, site awareness, disaster recovery testing, and standby management. Copy Services Manager 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.

Copy Services Manager 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 ensure 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 Copy Services Manager. 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.

Copy Services Manager is well-integrated with z Systems™ even when running on a distributed systems server. The server function runs in a z/OS® 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 Copy Services Manager server. The z Systems storage administrator can monitor both mainframe (ECKD™) DASD volumes and non-mainframe (FBA) disk volumes.

Copy Services Manager 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 planned and unplanned automatic swapping 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 Copy Services Manager 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 two- and three-site solutions. Once Copy Services Manager 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 Copy Services Manager from a remote server.

By using Copy Services Manager for your copy services management, you can help reduce your workload by using less commands and improve safety through pre-command execution warnings and user roles. The integration of Copy Services Manager 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.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
