You decided that you want to use VSAM, something you know nothing about and now you want justification for your uninformed decision?
Never-the-less, VSAM will work just fine, KSDS, ESDS, RRDS etc. Something a little more recoverable like DB2 would be better, but for many years VSAM has been the backbone for many banks.
