DASD Devices Used with Snapshot General Services
You can use the Snapshot General Services component of the
to reduce the database down time that is associated with image copy activity. Snapshot General Services leverages capabilities of DASD storage subsystems with advanced copy features to create almost instantaneous point-in-time copies of the database data sets.
The copy services that are provided by Snapshot General Services can be used with IBM and IBM-compatible storage subsystems that support the IBM FlashCopy II mode of operation. Verify that your DASD storage subsystem supports FlashCopy II operations. For more information, refer to the FlashCopy II compatibility documentation for your storage subsystem vendor.
EMC Corporation storage subsystems are also supported using either the EMC native interface or their FlashCopy II support.
