z/Archive adds to a comprehensive portfolio of services offered by Recovery Point, recently named a “Leader” in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for DRaaS.
Recovery Point Systems, a leading national provider of cloud-based business resilience solutions, announces z/Archive, a new low-cost object storage solution using Transparent Cloud Tiering from IBM.
z/Archive provides mainframe users with a simple and inexpensive way to move older data to cloud storage, freeing up valuable, high-performance storage capacity. This storage solution allows clients to create point-in-time snapshots of data on their systems and then copy and store that data in the RPS cloud.
Key features include: automated, policy-based HSM migration to cloud, MIPS reduction via direct data transfer from DS88XX/TS77XX to object storage, support for multi-site DS8880 HA/DR environments, an additional, low-cost storage tier with massive storage capacities and no capital investment, data encryption before transmission to object storage and immutable storage options to enforce retention at an object level.
z/Archive adds to a comprehensive portfolio of services offered by Recovery Point, recently named a “Leader” in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for DRaaS. By offering a scalable, secure and economical storage option, Recovery Point remains at the forefront of providing critical solutions for mainframe users.
“We are pleased to offer a solution that will help clients more cost effectively manage the relentless growth of data that comes as businesses expand,” said Marc Langer, Recovery Point’s president. “z/Archive allows customers to reduce their capital and operating expenses with direct mainframe data transfer to Recovery Point’s S3 compatible object storage platform. The goal is to provide our clients with a single vendor interface for all of their storage types and tiers, so they can focus their resources on business innovation rather than managing fragmented storage portfolios.”
