In today's highly competitive and real time environment, the ability to manage all IT operations on a continuous basis makes the creation of copies and backups of data a core requirement for any IT deployment. Furthermore, it is necessary to provide proactive efficient Disaster Recovery strategies that can ensure continuous data availability for business operations. The Copy Services functions available with the IBM® System Storage™ DS8000® are designed to be part of these strategies.

This IBM Redbooks® publication will help you plan, install, configure, and manage the Copy Services functions of the IBM System Storage DS8000 when used in IBM System ® environments.
