Key Point Summary
- FDRPASVM is Unique…
•
•
–
•
–
–
–
FDRPASVM is a new high availability solution to non-disruptively move the
DASD volumes of running z/VM & Linux on z systems, concurrently migrating
many volumes, owned by many users to new DASD hardware…
No other tool does this
FDRPASVM (GA 2014) is built on proven FDRPAS technology
Over 1700+ customer migrations since 2001
FDRPASVM has helpful tools to:
Estimate the migration effort
Validate the environment
Manage the migration
You don’t have to bring z/VM or Linux systems down to move DASD

SIMPLIFY MIGRATION of z/VM and
LINUX on z DASD…
•
•
FDRPASVM supports non-disruptive migration of:
– User and CP-Owned volumes
– z/VM Minidisk volumes (PERM)
– Full-pack and DEDICATEd volumes
– CP-Owned (must have two PAGE and two SPOOL volumes)
– Smaller to larger volumes (ex: 3390-9 to 3390-27)
FDRPAS functions:
– SIMSWAP – Simulate and validate main swap task
– SIMSWAPMON – Simulate and validate monitoring updates
– SWAPDUMP – Create point-in-time copy of volume(s)
– SWAP – Copy and swap volume(s)

What’s does FDRPASVM do for Business Resiliency… ?
•
•
Customers tell us they are configuring SSI & LGR to:
– Eliminate planned outages
– Allow for non-disruptive hardware processor maintenance
– Protect themselves against local disruption
FDRPASVM extends the scope of these SSI & LGR objectives
– While SSI & LGR are relocating memory and CPU…
– FDRPASVM concurrently relocates z/VM & Linux disk storage

Recent FDRPASVM customer experience…
In a z/VM 6.3 SSI environment
Successfully migrated 10 TB of data in one day
One sample job migrated:
– 54 DASD volumes
– Containing 3 TB of data
– in 31 minutes (5.7 TB/hr)
Avoiding… costly z/VM and Linux outages, the need for a
project manager and many weekends of extra work

15
What problems did customer face?
• Storage technology refresh to accommodate Linux on z growth.
• Need to keep outage windows to an absolute minimum
• Desire to perform DASD technology refresh and to move data
around for performance improvements without having to engage
with Business Units…and negotiate for long-duration outages.
© Copyright 2015 All rights reserved.
16
Why did these problems exist?
•
•
“The z/VM and Linux on z data migration process involved a costly
($$$) services agreement with our DASD vendor to “precopy” the
data to new footprints and then perform cutovers during planned
standalone windows (which were subject to 11th-hour
cancellations by the BU).”
“To perform a cutover, we had to go through extensive planning
for these events with the Business Units, multiple IT groups to
coordinate activities for standalone windows, including extensive
timeline planning in the event a backout is needed.”

17
Why did customer consider FDRPASVM?
•
•
•
“Data migrations using INNOVATION FDR products (FDRPAS,
FDRMOVE) have been so successful and “foolproof” over the years
that I’ve earned an exemption from the change team to have very
low-level “standard” changes to perform these migrations.”
“z/VM and Linux on z migrations using FDRPASVM allows us
flexibility in how and when we schedule our data migrations.”
“Non-prod migrations can actually be performed during the week
which minimizes the amount of work my team needs to do on
weekends.”

Testimonial of Satisfaction…
from a Large Financial Institution
Non-Disruptive Migration
business units requirements that rely
“The
on Linux volumes have made it very difficult
for us to schedule outages to move their
systems. FDRPASVM now allows us to
move them non-disruptively like FDRPAS
does for our z/OS volumes.

What benefits did customer realize?
Perform technology refreshes and move data around for
performance improvements without having to engage Business
Units and application teams to negotiate for long-duration outages.
• Save time and eliminates planned outages for DASD migration.
• Keep the systems up making money for the firm.
“The biggest benefit is the ability to now move ALL our mainframe
(including z/VM and Linux on z ECKD) data around non-disruptively.”
