It is currently being done using a CA-Epic tape.         


Release : 5.2

Component : CA EPIC for z/VSE


POFFLOAD support was added to EPIC in PTF RO40338 and pre-req PTF RO34713 so first make sure you have both applied.

Documentation updates are included in informational solutions RI40340 and RI40341, updates to the CA EPIC for z/VSE 5.2 User Guide and Installation and System Guide. 

POFFLOAD support requires you use IBM's power offload which can then control the tapes used by EPIC.

Archiving would be something RAPS could be also used for , the CAPRARCH utilitiy.
