    Abstract

    IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Replication Version 3, Release 1 brings support for the advanced copy services capabilities on the DS8000 and DS6000, in addition to the support for ESS model 800 and SVC. This support focuses on automating administration and configuration of these services, operational control (starting, suspending, resuming) copy services tasks and monitoring and managing the copy services sessions.

    In addition to the support for FlashCopy and Metro Mirror, TotalStorage Productivity Center for Replication V3R1 supports Global Mirror on the ESS800, DS8000, and DS6000 hardware platforms. Advanced disaster recovery functions are also supported with failover/failback (planned and unplanned) from a primary site to a disaster recovery site.

    TotalStorage Productivity Center for Replication also can monitor the performance of the copy services that provide a measurement of the amount of replication and the amount of time that is required to complete the replication operations.

    This IBM Redbooks publication provides the information you need to install TotalStorage Productivity Center for Replication, and create and manage replication sessions on a Windows 2003 platform. Scenarios are provided that document the work performed in our laboratory setting, using the GUI and CLI.
