  • Data Management vs. Storage Management

    1. 1. DATA vs. STORAGE MANAGEMENT With ICE-PAK ® In IBM z/OS & OS/390 STORAGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS Supercharging SMS for Optimum Data Management and Systems Efficiency
    2. 2. <ul><li>ICE-PAK ® Efficiently Manages Data </li></ul><ul><li>International Consulting and Education, Inc. (ICE), specializes in efficient z/OS data management. The ICE-PAK Data Management software suite analyzes data based on historical use in the mainframe environment whether it resides on DASD, tape or virtual tape. This analysis provides a clear picture of the current data storage environment unlike any other software tool on the market today. </li></ul><ul><li>The ICE-PAK® Storage Management Suite is the only suite of products in the industry that Supercharges SMS by: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Analyzing data set allocation & historical use using SMF data </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Monitoring data set allocation and movement </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reporting on Data Management </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fixing class managed storage issues automatically using SMS without any JCL changes </li></ul></ul></ul>
    3. 3. BENEFITS of ICE-PAK® <ul><li>If business growth is 10%, why do storage requirements grow at 20%, or more? If it can’t be measured, it can’t be managed </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits include - </li></ul><ul><li>Potential to more than double the utilization of existing media for storage – tape and disk </li></ul><ul><li>• Far fewer disks and tape need be purchased for future data storage </li></ul><ul><li>• Faster recovery in the event of a system failure </li></ul><ul><li>• Substantially reduces IT costs and personnel requirements </li></ul><ul><li>• Overall system performance greatly increased </li></ul>ICE-PAK® is the investment that pays dividends 24 hours a day
    4. 4. Storage Growth (Assume 30%/5yrs) TIME (YRS) Personnel Requirements Overall Storage Costs Storage efficiency Per byte ICE-PAK ® Impact on Storage Personnel Requirements With ICE-PAK Overall Storage Costs With ICE-PAK Storage efficiency/byte With ICE-PAK PERCENTAGE CHANGE 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 Without ICE-PAK With ICE-PAK
    5. 5. Historically, companies typically realize between 20-40% saving in storage use utilizing ICE-PAK. The cost savings with this model is very conservative, because we are assuming only hardware expenditures and not including additional maintenance, environmental, administration, etc. costs which are estimated to be 25-30% of the purchase price. This model also does not take into consideration the savings realized from the added ICE-PAK benefits of storage administration time saved, increased system performance and overall efficiency. 3,348,720 933,120 777,600 648,000 540,000 450,000 45% 2,976,640 829,440 691,200 576,000 480,000 400,000 40% 2,604,560 725,760 604,800 504,000 420,000 350,000 35% 2,232,480 622,080 518,400 432,000 360,000 300,000 30% 1,860,400 518,400 432,000 360,000 300,000 250,000 25% 1,488,320 414,720 345,600 288,000 240,000 200,000 20% 744,160 207,360 172,800 144,000 120,000 100,000 10% 5 YR.

    6. 6. The ICE-PAK ® Storage Management Suite is the total solution for effective data management. Storage consumption and efficiency has typically been difficult to manage because of the lack of adequate measurement tools. ICE-PAK allows appropriate placement of data based on business requirements and can not only measure but also efficiently and automatically manage and implement corrective action without any JCL changes, saving money . ICE-PAK is also an invaluable tool for migrating data to and from new media technology.
