How it works
Model9’s patented technology uses DFDSS as the data mover to create data-set backups and full-volume dumps directly on any storage attached to the network, either on-premise or in the cloud. Using pervasive immutable (WORM) storage solutions as the target for backups ensures that all copies are protected and cannot be tampered with.
While all data are compressed before leaving the mainframe, end-to-end encryption can be applied for even more enhanced data protection. In addition, Model9 supports stand-alone restore directly from any storage attached to the network, both on-premise or in the cloud, providing fast data recovery at any location – without relying on an existing mainframe operating system.
When combined with storage snapshot technologies (such as Flashcopy), Model9 also
improves RPO by enabling multiple, consistent recovery points without having to expand existing mainframe DASD storage capacity.
