I just have a doubt..
I need to take around 1000 DSNs(PS) backups. Which is better to store
Tape or DASD (mostly with respect to cost )?

Hello,

You need to ask those responsible for chargeback at your organization.

I would go for tape. But if you have HSM or another ILM software implemented then looking at that might save a load of time and effort.

I would go for TAPE. In my previous project, we had an OPTIMIZATION exercise and by using TAPE's instead of DASD we saved thousands of dollars.
