VSAM (Virtual Storage Access Method) provides a variety of ways of accessing data held on datasets.
The main types of VSAM files are:
Key Sequenced Data Sets (KSDS)
Entry Sequenced Data Sets (ESDS)
Relative Record Data Sets (RRDS)
and Linear Data Sets (LDS).
VSAM data sets are normally created using the IDCAMS utility program.
