Keep your data safe with the IBM DS8000, Transparent Cloud Tiering, and the IBM TS7700



Transparent Cloud Tiering (TCT) enables direct data movement from IBM DS8000 to cloud object storage, without the need for the data to go through the host reducing CPU utilization on the Z. Join this session to hear from experts Craig Gordon and Toy Phouybanhdyt to learn all about Transparent Cloud Tiering. This session will cover what TCT does, how to implement it with the DS8000 and the TS7700. We will also have a live demonstration of setting up this configuration.

Following the demo, we will have a presentation highlighting the security features of the TS7700.
