Disaster Recovery methodologies

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Mar 28, 2008
Dear Friends,

I am currently running a soon-to-be R160 CV under zVSE and zVM. Our
storage subsystem is an IBM 2105-800. I am curious to know anyone can
share any experience with using Peer to Peer Remote Copy (PPRC) in an
IDMS environment for backups and/or disaster recovery.

"We are also using PPRC in Z/OS. . . .no issues . . . no impact on the
production system, and no noticeable gap . . .

Quite a learning curve amongst all the copies of your database that will
exist and the concepts of ""consistency groups""
