BCV6 provides for fast, efficient and comfortable copying of DB2 data. Compared with other methods based on UNLOAD/RELOAD or DSN1COPY, BCV6 works ten times faster. Thereby it requires only 10% of the resources consumed by conventional procedures, measured in CPU-Time or SRU. To put it in a nutshell: BCV6 saves 90% of the copy time and 90% of the computer resources.

This product is intended to be a tool for DB2 data movement under z/OS. The main design goals were to offer

  • an integrated process for "copying", in the way that the user only specifies what is to be copied and whereto, and the tool then cares about all aspects of that task;
  • a product which is fast enough to copy bulk data in a shortest amount of time, and efficient enough in the sense of saving computer resources during copying;
  • a tool which is easy to handle and easy  to adapt to varying environments;
  • a copy service for 24x7 environment.

The product is equipped with two user interfaces. One is based on ISPF, the other is a workstation program written in JAVA. Both allow to define copy tasks, edit the specifications of tasks, and allow to submit tasks.
