IBM Cloud Tape Connector for z/OS processes and moves your data without the need for more hardware gateway devices. It leverages zIIP processors to minimize CPU cost of data movement.
The latest version features new security options with Life Cycle Encryption and provides “deviceless” Virtual Tape Emulation for a completely software-defined storage lifecycle.
IBM Advanced Archive
IBM® Advanced Archive for DFSMShsm creates a new archive tier for backing up inactive mainframe data currently managed by DFSMShsm. The additional, lower-impact management tier consumes less CPU resources to improve DFSMShsm efficiency and adds cloud storage to virtual and physical tape media options.
IBM Advanced Archive for DFSMShsm preserves DFSMS policies to properly back up data and manage retention. When applications or users recall data stored in a cloud, it is returned to DFSMShsm control and made available. IBM Advanced Archive for DFSMShsm supports IBM Cloud Object Storage, IBM SoftLayer® and Amazon S3 cloud environments.
