IBM® Tivoli® Advanced Audit for DFSMShsm™ and IBM Tivoli Advanced Reporting for DFSMShsm work together to help organizations facilitate a healthy DFSMShsm environment and provide reliability, scalability, and availability with vital components of the IBM z/OS® storage management portfolio.
IBM® Advanced Archive for DFSMShsm creates a new archive tier for backing up inactive mainframe data currently managed by DFSMShsm. The additional, lower-impact management tier consumes less CPU resources to improve DFSMShsm efficiency and adds cloud storage to virtual and physical tape media options. IBM Advanced Archive for DFSMShsm preserves DFSMS policies to properly back up data and manage retention. When applications or users recall data stored in a cloud, it is returned to DFSMShsm control and made available. IBM Advanced Archive for DFSMShsm supports IBM Cloud Object Storage, IBM SoftLayer® and Amazon S3 cloud environments.
IBM® Tivoli® Automated Tape Allocation Manager for z/OS® is designed to maximize existing tape resources, reduce operational overhead and improve batch processing efficiency. It enables you to share, automate and control multiple tape drives across a multisystem environment.
