GFS/AFM is the most advanced tape library manager for z/OS systems and a leading solution in the market. GFS/AFM automates and integrates all management operations for protecting and releasing volumes in z/OS tape libraries while also controlling the transit of volumes, security vaults, and external tape libraries.

Notable for its versatility, GFS/AFM works integrated with other external data managers (TSM, DFSMShsm, etc), supports most robots and virtualization systems available in the market and is easy to use.

GFS/AFM provides high availability and reduces costs dramatically, eliminating the practice of frequent shutdowns for configuration or maintenance.
