The Evolution of Mainframe Data Storage:
Expecting More from Virtual Tape

Continuous tape availability, DR test simplicity and future-proof architectures are the foundation for today‚Äôs mainframe data protection. This foundation has enabled data centers to “expect more and do more” with mainframe virtual tape. Attend this session to learn how virtual tape can enable you to off-host HSM Recycle, improve multi-tenancy management, archive to the cloud and securely exchange data at high speeds between mainframes and distributed systems for analytics and off-host processing.

Adventures in Mainframe Data Integration:
How MDI is Changing the Value and Economics of the Mainframe

Mark Wilson (RSM Partners) joins Luminex visionary and CEO, Art Tolsma, and Mainframe Data Integration (MDI) Product Manager, Colleen Gordon, in discussing how MDI solutions are transforming the way the mainframe shares data throughout the enterprise. Mark details the secure aspects of using FICON in place of TCP/IP for moving data to and from the mainframe. Art and Colleen will discuss how MDI, with its extensible architecture, extraordinary efficiency and ease-of-use, has inspired clients and system integrators with new use cases seeking to harness the value of mainframe data. Colleen will detail these use cases, as well as new functionality including integration with the cloud, data lakes, data warehouses, Kafka and off-host processing solutions.
