As the amount of data and information continues to increase in your IT environment, so do space and performance requirements. Using a flexible, robust data migration solution that supports multiple vendors and varying disk capacities, IBM Data Mobility Services - Softek asset based services - data migration with EAV enablement helps you quickly and efficiently migrate data to large-capacity, high-performing volumes in mainframe environments with minimal business interruption.
Helping to improve business operations through highly available data and applications
To address the need for more data storage space and better performance, many organisations are considering migration to large-capacity disks on today's high-performance storage subsystems. But implementing a data migration is a complicated, time-consuming activity that can be disruptive to service level agreements and requires expertise that many IT organisations may lack. Faced with the increased risk of business disruption and extended planned outages, organisations need help from IT experts to perform the data migration-without interrupting the ongoing business environment while maintaining data and application availability.
IBM Data Mobility Services - Softek asset based services - data migration with EAV enablement leverages IBM's proven methodologies and best practices to provide flexible, nondisruptive data migration in mainframe environments between different disk capacities and across storage vendors. This migration solution provides the flexibility to move data online without the need for scheduling downtime while maintaining application availability. By enabling the consolidation of smaller to larger capacity, better performing storage volumes using the Extended Address Volume (EAV) functionality, you are able to make better use of your storage capacity-reducing the number of volumes and reclaiming space. You also can see a substantial reduction in downtime and greater flexibility to more easily align your business continuity needs and service level agreements.
