Improve your ability to manage your IBM® z/OS® storage environment with BMC AMI Storage solutions. This set of solutions help you simplify your mainframe storage subsystems; improve the performance of your virtual storage access method (VSAM) applications; and can even help you migrate from one storage subsystem to another from the same or a different vendor.
High-performance storage management tools
- Automation: Resolve storage issues before they can cause problems with integrated event management features.
- Allocation: Ensure that jobs complete successfully the first time they are run and reduce the storage needed for data allocations.
- Reporting: Monitor and analyze storage statistics to optimize your infrastructure, avoid purchasing additional resources, safeguard subsystem health, and ensure critical applications complete successfully.
- Performance: Maximize capacity, reduce VSAM run time, improve IBM® CICS® and batch performance, and reduce overall CPU consumption.
- Storage Management: Get high performance z/OS direct-access storage device (DASD) management, backup, recovery, and archiving.
- Migration: Maximize performance and resource utilization while minimizing administrative effort and data disruptions with non-disruptive disk and tape migrations.
Your organization’s mainframe storage subsystems house your most critical data and represent a significant strategic investment.
Within z/OS environments, mainframe storage subsystems are highly fluid and critical to operations. BMC AMI Storage provides visibility into capacity, utilization, and performance to ensure high availability for production systems.
BMC AMI Storage Management Solutions
BMC AMI Storage FDR
Provides full volume and data set backup and recoveries. Data sets can be restored together or individually.
BMC AMI Storage FDRABR
Delivers a powerful suite of high performance storage management tools including full Volume and application backup, incremental backup, data set archiving, and comprehensive reporting.
BMC AMI Storage FDREPORT
A comprehensive storage management report generator that creates easy-to-read, management-level reports, including pre-packaged reports to identify potential problems in the storage management system.
BMC AMI Storage FDRINSTANT
Provides a managed point-in-time backup with minimal data disruption to online processing. Supports IBM, Dell, and Hitachi Fast Copy hardware.
BMC AMI Storage FDRREORG
Delivers an intelligent solution for reorganizing VSAM and IAM data sets, including VSAM KSDS, VSAM and IAM Alternate Indexes (AIX), IAM data sets, and PDS compression.
BMC AMI Storage COMPAKTOR
Ensures volumes are operating at maximum performance and efficiency. It consolidates free space on a volume, minimizes multi-volume data sets, and detects logical errors.
BMC AMI Storage Allocation
Ensures the proper allocation of critical application data sets and provides efficient data pooling. Provides data set allocations for mainframe disk and tape environments and reports on exceptions.
BMC AMI Storage Reporting
Monitors and analyzes mainframe storage statistics. Reports on the health of the storage subsystems to ensure critical applications complete successfully.
BMC AMI Storage Automation
Maximizes data set availability by diagnosing mainframe storage issues and automating recovery processes.
BMC AMI Storage StopX37/II
Ensures data sets are allocated efficiently, prevents catalog errors, creates optimal secondary allocations, reduces primary and secondary space allocations, and intercepts storage abends and standard storage violations. This is also available as part of BMC AMI Storage Allocation.
BMC AMI Storage Migration Solutions
BMC AMI Storage FDRPAS and FDRPASVM
Manages mainframe z/OS volume and IBM® z/VM® mini-disk storage migrations with maximum speed and efficiency while minimizing application downtime and service disruptions.
BMC AMI Storage FDRMOVE
Provides a high-performance, minimally disruptive movement of z/OS data sets to achieve ideal volume consolidation and data set placement for load balancing and I/O contention reduction.
BMC AMI Storage FDRERASE
Efficiently erases z/OS volume data with minimal CPU utilization.
BMC AMI Storage FATSCOPY
Automates labor-intensive tape management activities including tape stacking, tape conversion, tape migration, and copying and re-cataloging tape-based data sets.
BMC AMI Storage Performance Solutions
BMC AMI Storage IAM
Provides a transparent alternative to VSAM KSDS, VSAM AIX, ESDS, and RRDS data set types. Shortens application response time by reducing I/O consumption, eliminating index I/O, and lowering CPU utilization. Dynamically tunes buffer utilization with real-time monitoring.
BMC AMI Storage IAM/PLEX
Built on the proven IAM Record Level Sharing (IAM/RLS) technology, IAM/PLEX allows IAM data sets to be shared by multiple CICS regions and batch programs across multiple LPARs in a parallel sysplex environment.
