IBM DS8870 Copy Services for Open Systems

Book Description

This IBM® Redbooks® publication helps you plan, install, tailor, configure, and manage Copy Services for Open Systems environments on the IBM DS8870.

This book helps you design and implement a new Copy Services installation or migrate from an existing installation. It includes hints and tips to maximize the effectiveness of your installation, and information about tools and products to automate Copy Services functions. It is intended for anyone who needs a detailed and practical understanding of the DS8870 Copy Services.

There is a companion book that supports the configuration of the Copy Services functions in an IBM z/OS® environment, IBM System Storage DS8000 Copy Services for IBM z Systems™, SG24-6787.
