ASG-Zara tracks all dataset contents on a volume, determines tape status, and performs its own database maintenance. Other features include transient tape support, SAF security, optional SMP/E support, alphanumeric volser support, peer-to-peer communication with silo devices, electronic vaulting support, real-time off-site storage management, and external label printing. ASG-Zara tracks the physical location and contents of every volume, whether in the data center or off-site, and provides this information through online displays and hard copy reports.
