Nowadays, DBAs are presented with multiple different storage options upon which to deploy DB2 systems. The options offer varying performance, availability and economics. The optimal selection for a given DB2 for z/OS system may not be obvious. Moreover, as application usage changes over time, moving to different choice of storage can be challenging. This presentation discusses practical ways to implement a tiered storage architecture with DB2 for z/OS and presents a view of how this may be handled in the future.
