solutions address the key factors that impact business continuity and regulatory compliance: availability, time to restart systems after a disaster, data protection and distance between primary and backup systems," said Casimer DeCusatis, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Systems and Technology Group.
Interoperability testing has been completed for the following IBM application solution environments: GDPS
/Peer-to-Peer Remote Copy (PPRC)/ESCON(R) up to the maximum Sysplex Timer(R) application distance of 40 km, GDPS
/Extended Remote Copy (XRC)/FICON(TM) up to the maximum supported distance of 100 km, and all IBM protocol requirements of the GDPS
S/390 and zSeries eServer environments.
The IBM e-business logo, zSeries, z900, GDPS
, PPRC, XRC, FiCON, ESCON and Parallel Sysplex.
extends the Parallel Sysplex technology over dark fiber, adding distance separation to further enhance customer demand for continuous operations.
The interoperability test is being conducted to demonstrate that the Cisco ONS 15540, Cisco's highest-end dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) system, can support the required GDPS
storage and mainframe protocols over metropolitan-area fiber optics networks.
