Embedded with external storage from IBM (SVC, Storwize Vxxxx, FS9xxx, DS8xxx) or from other manufacturers there is a very powerful function: FLASHCOPY (or SNAPSHOT or INSTANT COPY). This function allows you to CLONE all the disks of a full partition in some seconds!!!

But how to use it from IBM i? Is it possible to launch a New Partition on the Cloned disks? For which usages?
- simply to execute hot backups (with or without BRMS) and even daily system backups (Save 21) ?...
- but also to create fresh environments for validation, test, acceptance, formation even for development ?...
- or to make copies that will be used as 'recovery' or as reference for analysis or for extractions toward a data warehouse or for simple SQL queries ? ...

The M81 product - "Flash for i" - allows you, from your Production partition, to automate, manage, integrate and log all the necessary tasks for those kinds of usages … Example: execute a Daily SAVE21 backup in less than 2 minutes downtime!
