Replicating Mainframe Virtual Tape for DR - Best Practices

In this session, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and customers will discuss best practices for the replication process and DR testing for a variety of data center use cases and environments. They will use real-life examples from businesses that are successfully replicating their mainframe tape data for DR today. The discussion will also cover how a unified approach can be used to simplify tape and primary disk replication and achieve a consistent Recovery Point Objective (RPO) for "ultimate disaster recovery."
