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) and DFSMShsm (HSM). This function can be used to move datasets directly from DS8000 to TS7700. This IBM Redpaper™ publication describes the client value, and how DFSMShsm, DS8000, and TS7700 are set up to enable and use the function.
