IBM DS8880 and IBM z Systems Synergy

An IBM Redpaper publication

Abstract

From inception, what is known today as IBM® z Systems® always had a close and unique relation to its storage. Over the years, improvements to the z Systems processors and storage software, the disk storage systems and their communication architecture have constantly reinforced the synergy.

This IBM Redpaper™ publication summarizes and highlights the various aspects, advanced functions, and technologies that are often pioneered by IBM, and that make the IBM z Systems and the IBM DS8880 an ideal combination.

This paper is intended for those who have some familiarity with z Systems and the IBM DS8000® series and want a condensed but comprehensive overview of the synergy items up to the IBM z13® and z13s™, and the IBM DS8880 Release 8.2 firmware.
