Backup and archives are limited to virtual and physical tape systems that are 10x more expensive than distributed storage.
Tape management processes, such as recycling and scratch reclamation, run on CPs and increase MSU consumption.
Backup and tape management software runs on CPs, lacks reporting and monitoring capabilities and requires a certain level of expertise to maintain.
Virtual tape backups are exposed to cyber attacks and are subject to slow recovery times and infrequent backups.
Your storage options are unlimited, including object storage, NAS and SAN, on-premise and in the cloud.
Most processing is offloaded to zIIPs without having to emulate old tape interfaces.
Automatic recovery testing, detailed reports, real-time notifications and built-in encryption translate into better RPO.
Data can be stored on immutable storage to protect against cyber attacks and data corruption.
An intuitive web user interface and seamless integration with operational workflows.
