Understanding z/OS Disk Metadata: Catalogs, VTOCs, VVDSs, Indexes, and More

Join us October 26, 2021 | 11am EDT / 10am CDT

Your company's most frequently used, most valuable data resides on z/OS® disks, or DASD (Direct Access Storage Devices). The way that data is stored on these devices is very different from non-z/OS systems.

An understanding of just how z/OS datasets are created, located, accessed, and deleted is as important to end-users as it is to storage administrators and system programmers.

In this month's educational webinar, we'll discuss how the concepts and structures invented in the 1960s have evolved into today's high-availability, high-performance, high-reliability disk storage subsystems.
