Many z/OS® customers today require their applications to be available 24x7. Whether the business requirements are high availability, disaster recovery, or business continuity, HyperSwap® technology can provide an adequate solution. HyperSwap is the industry standard and is provided in several different implementation options to meet the various business needs of the System z® and z/OS customer base.

IBM Copy Services Manager (CSM) enables you to manage z/OS HyperSwap and helps you manage planned and unplanned actions in an z/OS environment from an Open Systems environment.

This IBM RedBooks publication provides best practices for the planning, implementation, integration and management of z/OS HyperSwap with CSM.
