Do More with Virtual Tape

Until now, virtual tape subsystems simply provided a way to read and write tape. But what if they could do more? Attend this session to learn how Luminex has revolutionized virtual tape by utilizing the FICON channel to do more with mainframe data across the enterprise. The speaker discusses how this new technology allows mainframe clients to secure file transfers, share data with Distributed Systems applications, send data to the Cloud and Hadoop, feed your Kafka bus, and execute SAS programs all using the virtual tape interface on the mainframe.
