The IBM 3995 optical library has been the backbone of archive and imaging solutions on the IBM i operating system platform for close to 20 years. However, the POWER7 system configurations do not support attachment of the 3995 device and associated host adapters. If you have these optical libraries and are planning a migration to POWER7, you will want to consider an option to migrate your 3995 data to an Image Catalog (virtual optical media library) and preserve your existing application investments. This session will describe the Image Catalog functions available through IBM Lab Services offerings for migration of existing 3995 data to a virtual optical library that is transparent to applications.
