Replicating Mainframe Tape Data for DR Best Practices

Subject Matter Experts will discuss best practices for the replication process and DR testing for a variety of data center use cases and environments, using real-life examples from businesses that are successfully replicating their mainframe tape data for DR today. Examples will include DR testing without interrupting replication.

Data Center Relocation - No Physical Tape Means No Problem!

Businesses today are faced with the challenges of physically moving or consolidating their data infrastructure for reasons ranging from mergers, cost cutting or growth. The cost and complexity are magnified when physical tape is part of the legacy environment. This session will use customer examples to demonstrate how a transition to a tapeless environment can yield cost and time savings in both the relocation effort and future data center operations.

Panel Discussion - The Benefits of Going Tapeless

Learn how Modern Mainframe Virtual Tape takes the risks and uncertainties out of mainframe data protection, management and storage.  Mainframe users will discuss how they have leveraged Luminex’s Channel Gateways to improve their backup window with replication, realized significant cost savings while improving performance, and reduced or eliminated physical tape.  This panel discussion will present their real-world experiences and results achieved from adopting Luminex’s customer-proven, disk-based mainframe virtual tape technologies.

Lunch & Learn: Implementing Mainframe Virtual Tape (MVT) - Customers & Subject Matter Experts Share Their Experience

Learn from the experience of current users and the industry's Subject Matter Experts how to evaluate, size and implement the critical components required to successfully transition to modern Mainframe Virtual Tape (MVT) and migrate from the old tape infrastructure to a new tapeless solution. Related best practices for each component will be discussed, including tape studies, tape emulation, compression, replication, deduplication, storage types (NFS, FC or internal) and tape migration tools & services.

The Modern Mainframe Data Center – Sharing a Tape Infrastructure

Learn directly from mainframe data center users why disk-based mainframe virtual tape makes sense for all mainframe data applications, including production data, archiving, backup and disaster recovery.  Disk-based mainframe virtual tape allows mainframe enterprises to share a common data management system and infrastructure for both mainframe data as well as open systems data, vastly simplifying enterprise operations.  Equally applicable for both large and small data centers, disk-based mainframe virtual tape with replication allows mainframe enterprises to realize the substantial cost savings from eliminating or reducing physical tape.  Current case studies of organizations that have successfully implemented disk-based mainframe virtual tape will be presented by representatives of the mainframe users.
