Backup - Restore

fastVSAM’s highly efficient Backup and Restore Facility manages all file components as a single unit across multiple volumes and clusters. High-speed logic and command flexibility save fastVSAM users time and money during VSAM management and maintenance tasks. The larger the data set, the higher the savings. fastVSAM is compatible with SMP, SMP/E, DFDSS, SMS, and RACF. fastVSAM installs in minutes, requires no JCL changes and supports all VSAM formats.

Speed, Efficiency and Ease of Use

fastVSAM uses its proprietary high-speed logic to deliver considerable savings. It increases throughput by 50% or more and reduces elapsed time by up to 70%. fastVSAM reduces CPU time by 65% or more and can cut EXCP counts by up to 95%. fastVSAM can quickly copy a cluster, which speeds up the job of system and data management.

Comprehensive Backup

fastVSAM backs up data and catalog information from one or more VSAM clusters to a sequential file. Automatically compresses dead space by backing up only the active data, not the control overhead. Backup and restore clusters may reside on multiple volumes. fastVSAM restores all clusters and components, including key ranges, CI size, and primary/ secondary space allocations. Redefines the catalog information and then copies the data to the cluster.
