The IBM® TS7700 features a functional enhancement that allows for the TS7700 to act as an object store for transparent cloud tiering with IBM DS8000® (DS8K), DFSMShsm (HSM), and native DFSMSdss (DSS). This function can be used to move data sets directly from DS8000 to TS7700. This IBM Redpaper publication describes the client value, and how DFSMS, DS8000, and TS7700 are set up to enable and use the function.
