Native Replication Another valuable storage solution that the ProtecTIER solution provides is native replication. By shrinking the data, it’s compact enough to electronically transfer it to an off-site location. This can replace the timeintensive, costly and risky practice of backing up to tape or disk and manually shipping the media. “Backup tapes usually have a company’s most critical data about their customers and their finances. It’s really valuable information,” Nemechek says. “Native replication provides not only cost savings, but also limits risk. The solution automatically replicates. It’s more reliable, gets it

done faster and really helps if you have a disaster scenario or a whole data center goes down.”

A Solid Investment The TS7680 ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z offers high-performance inline deduplication, highly available two-node clustering and scalability to store up to 25 petabytes of tape data on high-speed disk capacity per system. It offers the capability to customize configurations for each client to optimize performance, capacity and/or specific disk storage needs. The TS7680 supports z/OS* v1R9 and above.

Acquisition can be 50 to 80 percent lower than standard virtual tape library solutions, which may help lower total cost of ownership. The investment is secure; IBM continues to invest in deduplication technology. “Every other quarter, we’ve been making improvements to the ProtecTIER solution,” Nemechek says. “It’s getting better all the time.” Data deduplication is no fad. It has proven its place in data-intensive environments. “I think it will become a standard technology in every mainframe data center,” Nemechek says.

Tami Deedrick is the managing
editor of IBM Systems Magazine, Power Systems edition.
