IBM uses the term data set in official documentation as a synonym of file, and Direct access storage device (DASD) because it supported other devices similar to . ACADEMIC TERM:__ Fall, COURSE DESCRIPTION: A study of data handling as related to both. computer hardware and software. Data structures, direct access. storage devices, file accessing mechanisms, sorting and searching, file recovery, data base security, and maintenance of integrity.

When the IBM Direct Access Storage Device (DASD) was rolled out in June , it gave customers the ability to store up to billion characters of information, almost four times the amount of previous IBM storage devices. For users that needed rapid access to large amounts of stored information, the transferred data at three millionFile Size: KB. temporary storage areas residing in main memory, channels and control units Channel Status Word (CSW) a data structure that contains information indicating the condition of the channel, including three bits for the three components of the I/O subsystem one each for the channel, control unit and device.

A direct-access storage device (DASD) (pronounced / ˈ d æ z d iː /) is a secondary storage device in which "each physical record has a discrete location and a unique address".

IBM coined the term DASD as a shorthand describing hard disk drives, magnetic drums, and data cells. Later, optical disc drives and flash memory units are also. Basic Direct Access Method, or BDAM is an access method for IBM's OS/ and successors computer operating systems on System/ and later "consists of routines used in retrieving data from, and storing data onto, direct access devices.": p.5 BDAM is available on OS/, OS/VS2, MVS, z/OS, and related high-end operating systems.

Random access (more precisely and more generally called direct access) is the ability to access an arbitrary element of a sequence in equal time or any datum from a population of addressable elements roughly as easily and efficiently as any other, no matter how many elements may be in the set.

In computer science it is typically contrasted to sequential access which requires data to be. How data files are stored in secondary storage varies with the types of media and devices you are using.

Data files may be stored on or in sequential-access storage, direct-access storage, or random-access storage. SEQUENTIAL-ACCESS STORAGE Punched cards, paper tape, and magnetic tape are examples of sequential-access storage media.

When operating in a sequential environment, a. The IBM VTS had a feature known as peer-to-peer (PTP) VTS capabilities. PTP VTS was a multisite capable BC/DR solution. In a nutshell, PTP VTS was to tape what Peer to Peer Remote Copy (PPRC) was to Direct Access Storage Device (DASD).

PTP VTS data transmission was originally via ESCON, then FICON, and finally TCP/IP. storage management, relieving users from manual storage management tasks.

Space management DFSMShsm improves DASD space usage by keeping only active data on fast-access storage devices. It automatically frees space on user volumes by deleting eligible data sets, releasing overallocated space, and moving low-activity data to lower cost-per-byte.

Multiprogramming and multiprocessing z/OS is capable of multiprogramming, or executing many programs concurrently, and of multiprocessing, which is the simultaneous operation of two or more processors that share the various hardware resources.

The earliest operating systems were used to control single-user computer systems. Dasd: IBM's Direct Access Storage Devices (J RANADE IBM SERIES) [Robert H. Johnson, R.

An access method is a function of a mainframe operating system that enables access to data on disk, tape or other external devices. They were introduced in in IBM OS/ operating system.

Access methods provide an application programming interface (API) for programmers to transfer data to or from device, and could be compared to device drivers in non-mainframe operating systems, but. Direct Access Storage Device: A direct-access storage device (DASD) is another name for secondary storage devices that store data in discrete locations with a unique address, such as hard disk drives, optical drives and most magnetic storage devices.
