EMC Enhances Mainframe Capabilities

EMC announced a new version of EMC Disk Library for mainframe (Dlm) which offers improved performance, enhanced usability and more storage choices. DLm release 4.1 provides for simplification of D/R testing for EMC VNX based Dlms, single drive performance improvements, deeper operational insights, and IPv6 compliance. 

DLm was specifically designed for uses cases such as backup/restore, hierarchical storage management (HSM), long-term data retention, and general work tapes. With Release 4.1, EMC said it has automated complex D/R test configurations for VNX storage within DLm, intended to simplify D/R set-up with menus executed on the mainframe.

The new release is designed to provide storage personnel more operational insight with new GUI options to view storage usage, performance and system health.
