The perfect building block for the creation of a simple, easy to use, data sharing environment to connect one or more Rational® Rational Development &Test (RD&T) Servers to an IBM® zSeries storage device. The zDATA Appliance provides the basic structure to move mainframe data, natively, between RD&T and the production data store. You can build a process to synchronize source libraries, test data, or complete volumes.
THREE MODES OF OPERATION
- Autonomous – Direct access to the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) within an IBM Enterprise Storage Server® (ESS) or Shark at the LCU and SSID level. There is no direct participation by the zHost. RD&T can update files or volumes directly. Contention Coordination is handled manually external to the process.
- On Demand – Function activation based on an SNMP message sent to the host or appliance and the RD&T Server.
- Scheduled – Timer based activities within RD&T and the host or appliance.
