FRS installs in less than an hour and can quickly be tested on a copy of a backup file. No modification to the CICS journaling process is needed. CICS journals are maintained through standard CICS procedures. You use your own backup/restore product to get your VSAM file(s) back to a recoverable state, and then use our JCL to run our Forward Recovery System program and specify the files to be recovered.

For your computer disaster recovery plan you can easily cost justify Forward Recovery System the first time you need it. It is an inexpensive solution to the problem of CICS data recovery.
