No Longer a Novelty This is the first mainframe deduplication solution from IBM. Already proven in the Power Systems* arena, the ProtecTIER technology released last year is quickly becoming popular for System z clients. “When we first starting talking to clients about deduplication technology—about three years ago—we’d have to explain what it is,” Nemechek says. “Now we don’t. It’s gone beyond a novelty or a hyped-up trend. It’s now an established technology that pretty much everyone in the open systems market is using because they understand the power of deduplication and they see how it can really help them in their backup and recovery operations.” Introducing deduplication to mainframe clients was an obvious choice for IBM and the timing is right, Nemechek says. “Traditionally, mainframe clients are generally more cautious of adopting new technology, but they are seeing that the benefits of deduplication and the replication that goes along with it are established, powerful tools.” Simply Productive IBM’s ProtecTIER solution lets clients store more data on a small amount of disk—up to a 25-to-1 reduction, according to Nemechek. “Deduplication can squeeze 25 terabytes of data down to only 1 terabyte of physical disk, so customers can have the speed and reliability of disk, but without that one-to-one cost,” he says. “It enables them to do more of their backup to disk as opposed to only getting to do that for their most critical data.” Other productivity and cost-saving measures should also be considered. Nemechek says in mainframe environments tape is often the choice as a repository for daily production data. ProtecTIER with a virtual tape infrastructure is disk pretending it’s tape and doesn’t change the mainframe’s

application or processing, but it can speed up operations. “Your data is instantly there on disk,” Nemechek says. “Not only does it help in the backup and recovery area in mainframe, it will also help in primary application-processing speed.”

Sometimes implementing backup strategies can be complicated and time consuming, but with the ProtecTIER solution, mainframe clients can see the benefit without much effort. “It’s a very simple change in the backup application,
