Application mainframe data to the cloud

Cloud data sets (CDS) allows to seamlessly replace tape related workload and redirect it to cloud object storage. Refer to Activating Model9 Cloud Data Sets for activation instructions.

As seen in the sample below using the default UNIT=CLOUD described in the activation section allows us to easily redirect the required workload.

//M9DMCDS   JOB 'ACCT#',REGION=4M,NOTIFY=&SYSUID  
//COPY     EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                      
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                            
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                               
//SYSUT1   DD DISP=SHR,DSN=M9.DEMO.PS             
//SYSUT2   DD DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),            
// UNIT=CLOUD,                                    
// DSN=M9.DEMO.CDS.PS                             

The job output will provide more information about the actions that were taken by the system and were intercepted and redirected to the cloud the Model9 CDS.

For example the ZM9CD11I and ZM9CD22I for the open & close the new CDS.
