  • How do you prepare for the eventual elimination of ESCON channel connectivity on your mainframe systems while maintaining a mixed peripheral environment that includes ESCON, as well as parallel devices? IBM, Optica and Cisco will introduce you to a strategy called Managed Evolution for System z that helps optimize your I/O environment while minimizing costs and improving efficiencies and performance. Managed Evolution provides System z users with maximum flexibility as you create an infrastructure that satisfies current and future workload requirements while establishing a FICON migration path for existing ESCON and parallel devices that can be pursued over any timeframe.
