Powerful Relief for your Mainframe Tape Operations

Mainframe data center operations can be relieved of the increasing performance, budget and disaster recovery pain that physical tape, tape libraries and limited virtual tape disk cache has not cured.

Today, batch processing, HSM, archive, backup and recovery require faster access to data, better performance and a better way to handle backup and remote disaster recovery. The Luminex Channel Gateway is the disk-based virtual tape solution that has eliminated the tape access delays caused by slower physical tape and mechanical tape robotics and it has expanded the capacity of virtual tape storage from TBs to PBs, well beyond the limits of a virtual tape cache. Equally important, Channel Gateways drive down disaster recovery time and the cost, by reducing or eliminating the delays and cost associated with using physical tape.
