Implement cloud backup and DR directly from the mainframe to any cloud or on-premises storage system. Perform backup, archive, space management and DR using object storage and fully replace legacy storage management software. This allows affordable long-term archiving using cold storage services such as Amazon S3 Glacier and Microsoft Azure archive storage, and if disaster strikes, data can be restored directly from the cloud.
Model9 consolidates multiple backup and tape management software products into a single solution that dramatically reduces costs and provides a complete replacement of existing backup and tape management software. It can even run side-by-side with legacy backup and tape management software for simplified migration. And, with parallel restore from the cloud, business continuity is less of a worry.
In contrast to any possible configuration of on-premises storage, cloud is limitless in terms of scalability and flexibility – and it is highly automated. In practice, this means storage can be optimized for the most cost-effective tier to deliver the performance you need – and it can be reconfigured easily on the fly as needs change and accessed at a moment’s notice. It’s the right approach for storage in a world that demands agility and speed.
Data needs to move at the speed of business, not at a pace imposed by sequential tape reads or processes that depend solely on an overworked CPU. With Model9 Cloud Data Manager for Mainframe, zIIP engines can help move data faster within the mainframe environment or entirely off the mainframe. Model9 also offers faster, high performance data transfer over TCP/IP, leveraging both compression and parallelism. This makes restoring data from the cloud much faster.
