With the many enhancements and improvements in mainframe I/O technology in the past 5 years, the question "Do I need FICON switching technology, or should I go with direct attached storage?" is frequently asked. This webcast explores both technical and business reasons for implementing a switched FICON architecture instead of a direct attached storage FICON architecture for mainframe attached storage. The discussion will also include an overview of the Hitachi Data Systems and Brocade solutions for mainframe environments. By viewing this webcast, you’ll learn: The business and technical value of networking FICON attached storage instead of direct attached. The business and technical value of Hitachi mainframe storage capabilities. The offerings from Hitachi Data Systems and Brocade that can help you achieve the benefits of networked FICON storage.
