    IBM® System Storage™ FlashCopy® Manager and System Storage PPRC Manager are IBM program products for IBM z/OS® and System z™ CKD IBM storage users. These program products assist in the implementation and use of System Storage DS8000™ , DS6000™ , or Enterprise Storage Server® (ESS) FlashCopy, as well as IBM Metro Mirror, Global Copy, and Global Mirror. They are composed of Interactive System Productivity Facility (ISPF) menu-driven application dialogs that generate z/OS batch jobs. In turn, these jobs invoke specialized z/OS programs.

    This IBM Redpaper publication provides an overview of System Storage FlashCopy Manager and System Storage PPRC Manager, as well as usage scenarios. A sample FlashCopy Manager session follows the descriptions of the offerings. Because of the similarities between the FlashCopy Manager and PPRC Manager interface, by viewing the FlashCopy Manager sample session, you will also become familiar with what a PPRC Manager session looks like.
