This redbook provides a broad understanding of disk architectures and their
impact in DB2 data set management for large installations. In addition, the
redbook will help you tailor and configure DFSMS constructs to be used in a DB2
for OS/390 environment.

This book addresses both the storage administrator and the DB2 administrator.
The DB2 administrator will find information on how to use DFSMS for managing
DB2's data sets. The storage administrator will find information on the
characteristics of DB2 data sets and how DB2 uses the disks.

After introducing the overall topics of this book, we provide a summary of our
