A Complete Azure Cloud Mainframe Data Management Solution

Model9 allows you to automatically discover all mainframe data assets, deliver them to Azure Cloud, and access them via Azure Cloud Applications. It is the only solution that lets you manage your data on Azure Storage quickly, easily, and without the need for mainframe specific experience.

Replace Legacy VTL and Tape Library Storage with Azure Cloud

Model9 can eliminate legacy VTL and migrate all the data on your mainframe tapes to Azure Cloud. It is the only solution that lets you replace your legacy mainframe backup system with affordable Azure Cloud for cloud backups and disaster recovery.

One Repository for Your Mainframe and Open Formats Data

Model9 first sends encrypted, compressed disk and tape mainframe data to Azure cloud via a lightweight software agent. It then transforms this mainframe formatted data into open formats on the cloud. You can then use this unified repository in any downstream application including Azure Data Lake Storage, SQL Data Warehouse, HDInsight, Azure Machine Learning and others.

Data-First Cloud Migration

Model9 Cloud Data Manager for Mainframe on Azure Cloud includes automated discovery to map and list all SGs, volumes, and datasets available for migration. It automatically connects to the mainframe, delivers the defined data to the target, and can then transform it to open formats. The solution can also easily migrate existing archive data directly to Azure Cloud — making it an accelerated path to Azure Cloud adoption.
