Customer would like to have tapeless backup solution that includes zOS and zVM solution.
Can Vtape work with Upstream for zLinux ? Any experience with this combination ?
Thansk in advance
CA Vtape is defined to the operating system like any other mainframe tape device and can be utilized by any job or task running on z/OS.
FDR/Upstream for Linux on System z submits batch jobs under z/OS to perform backups. Those backups can utilize any mainframe tape device which would include CA Vtape.
CA Vtape does not require any special configuration for use by FDR/Upstream for Linux on System z.
