z/VSE 6.2: DL/I partitioning
Ingolf24 120000DRN3 Visits (7097)
In the z/VSE 6.2 GA announcement letter (see my blog entry, GA December 1, 2017) we described a DL/I 1.12 enhancement, that we will deliver after GA (not this year).
DL/I introduces a partitioning function for hierarchical direct (HD) databases. Partitioning of a database allows users to increase the database storage capacity for one segment type up to 8 gigabytes (GB, may be more). This eliminates the current limitation of 4 GB. The partitioning function allows DL/I applications to transparently handle growing data.
The partitioning function will be made available as a PTF for DL/I VSE V1.12 after general availability of z/VSE V6.2.
Have a good weekend.
