Storage Virtualization for Mainframe DASD, Virtual Tape & Open Systems Disk

Co-Presented by John McDevitt, Hitachi Data Systems (HDS)

Some of the industry's leading enterprises are leveraging the technical and business advantages of storage consolidation and virtualization of mainframe disk, virtual tape and open systems disk. During this session, Subject Matter Experts will share their experience with implementing solutions that unify enterprise, modular and virtual tape storage and share the same remote replication software for all three environments. This approach can offer the ultimate strategy for enterprise-wide data protection, business continuity and disaster recovery.
