A Single Complete Solution
Backup, restore, archive and recall all z/OS data sets and volume types, including UNIX files, space management, encryption, reporting and bare-metal recovery in one solution.
All functions are offloaded to zIIPs, utilize the latest zEDC and CryptoExpress speciality cards, and transfer data over OSA cards, while using trusted standard DFDSS data mover capabilities.
Flexible Storage Choices
Eliminate tape and virtual tape architecture dependencies on proprietary hardware and networking by storing backups and archives directly on modern storage systems, including object storage on-premise and in the cloud, NAS and SAN.
Data is stored using standard DFDSS dump format and can be recovered with standard mainframe tools on any mainframe system, anywhere.
Leverage the scale, reliability and cost-effectiveness of object storage for your mainframe data. Backup and archive directly to private or public cloud storage solutions or use cloud storage as a low-cost storage tier for long term data retention.
