StorageTek LibraryStation software uses a client/server approach to automate MVS operations, providing enterprisewide storage management, remote vaulting and shared library resources. It allows non-MVS users to access reliable mainframe automated tape libraries.

  • Store data across the enterprise. Clients on different platforms can use the MVS as the server for a safe, secure, common repository for mission-critical data. Utilize common automated library resources.

  • Selectively secure data. Security interfaces (RACF and CA-ACF2) limit client access to LibraryStation-controlled volumes and MVS access to client-controlled volumes.

  • Keep data in place. Uses a combination of client/server software and channel extension for remote vaulting to eliminate the need to physically move media.

  • Straightforward connection. Supports TCP/IP, APPC/LU 6.2 and XCF without additional hardware or software requirements.

  • Add more clients. Parallel Sysplex increases the number of MVS images to an architectural limit of 256, from a maximum of 16 LibraryStation software systems.

  • Save time. Data is stored in automated libraries so recovery is fast.
