At every level, large enterprises recognize the advantage of automated processes. The mainframe was created to run applications in a shared workload environment, providing dramatically fewer boxes and better management of the database structures. In addition to the quantity of human resources needed for monitoring and fixing disaster recovery environments, energy and floor space issues are also important concerns. Mainframe shared workload environments require optimized systems to achieve the greatest efficiency, which results in the greatest cost savings. In addition, the performance of storage systems, networks, and databases is constantly improved to generate the greatest quantity of processing possible at the lowest possible cost. Mainframe GDPS automation increases security, disaster recovery, and availability.
