Service detail

Migrating data can have potentially disastrous effects, including planned or unplanned downtime, loss of revenue, unavailability of crucial applications and erosion of end-user experience. To ensure a productive data migration, you need a migration solution that is less complex, yet compatible with multivendor storage environments. Successful data migration requires careful planning and the services of skilled storage specialists. You need an end-to-end, nondisruptive data mobility solution that can help you avoid the risk of data loss and also ensure high data integrity during data migration.

IBM Data Mobility Services – Softek Transparent Data Migration Facility (TDMF®) z/OS® is end-to-end, host-based software that can enable local or global data migration for IBM z/OS mainframes across multivendor storage arrays. Our solution uses a standard data mobility process to help reduce the impact on storage subsystems when large databases or applications are migrated, enabling continuous application availability, reduced risk of data loss and high data integrity. We have gained expertise from executing over 2,500 nondisruptive migrations in over 800 companies worldwide.

Feature Function Benefit
Global migration via TCP/IP Enables network migration Optimizes flexibility and allows for cost effective remote data migration.
Dynamic Swap Automatically directs I/O to a new location after data replication completes Allows data migration without disruption
Dynamic pacing/throttling Migration rates change automatically Helps minimize effect on application performance
Auto operations interface Completely automates migration sessions, with virtually no human intervention required Increases productivity by automating redundant activities
Fast copy Copies only allocated and modified tracks/cylinders on the source volume to the target volume Speeds migrations and decreases costs
Full-speed copy Allows use of two I/O buffers for volume migration, with overlapping read and write operations Faster performance for times when speed counts the most
Active-in-Copy Moves large amounts of data without setting up multiple small groups; limits the number of volumes in the copy phase without consideration to the size of the group Minimizes the effect on the storage subsystem when migrating large databases or applications
