"Through our alliance with Luminex, our customers no longer need to look beyond StorageTek to meet their growing needs for tier two mainframe DASD
storage as part of their information lifecycle management solution," said Cameron van Orman, StorageTek director of Corporate Alliances at StorageTek.
Variables identified in previous econometric models for larger computers (e.g., MIPS, DASD
, RAM) were closely examined for their effect on PRICE.
The first was constructed by combining composite indexes for processors, DASD
, printers, and displays and a regression index for tape drives, using the annual value of shipments by domestic manufacturers as weights.
The Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Supply Chain Integration (DASD
[SCI]) serves as the principal advisor for advancing the integration of the DOD supply chain through policy development and by facilitating DOD component implementation of supply chain management practices; coordinating the service, agency and combatant commanders' logistics strategies to provide a unified approach to supporting the Department's logistics missions, goals, and objectives; examining promising concepts for logistics management and assessing their applicability to DOD; and strengthening the professional development of logisticians.
For the Adaptive Planning processes to work, the Secretary and those who manage his calendar must support the OSD staff in fulfilling its role, and enforce the review process that goes first through the DASD
for Plans, then the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, before reaching the Secretary.
An interesting result is that certain technological characteristics (e.g., direct access storage devices (DASD
) and random access memory (RAM)), which have been found to be important explanatory variables for cost in the larger machines, were not significant for the micros.
Disk drives--technically, direct access storage devices (DASD
)--are devices that write, store, and retrieve data.

In essence, this calls for exchanging the configuration of one ASD office with a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (DASD
) office within the same "directorate."
With the continuous reduction in the cost of DASD
, IT administrators are storing more and more data on-line in order to speed access time and take advantage of new low-cost technologies such as ATA disk-based RAID.
See how easily your disaster-recovery vendor can get you more equipment, including things like DASD
(direct-access storage devices), tape drives, and printers.
