What IBM z/OS Data Set Mobility Facility can do for you

IBM z/OS® Data Set Mobility Facility (zDMF) is a non-disruptive data migration solution that moves critical, allocated mainframe data sets almost immediately. It reduces the complexity of managing large migrations and helps ensure that applications remain online and available.

By migrating groups of data sets across hardware from different vendors and with different disk capacities, zDMF helps you avoid manual data-set migrations – minimizing errors and downtime. With accelerated data set migration:

  • Reduce the cost of deploying new mainframe storage and IT labor
  • Minimize lease and maintenance overlaps
  • Virtually eliminate outages
