As mainframe customers move to cloud computing and address big data challenges, highly interoperable solutions such as FATSCOPY and the EMC Disk Library
for mainframe help them contend with geometric data growth by reducing the amount of data they backup and the time they spend moving it.
EMC Disk Library
includes new software capabilities for improved management and monitoring, and additional features that increase performance and lower costs for data center backup and deduplication.
In a disk library, all the volumes are online and immediately accessible.
Customers with several smaller backup applications and tape solutions can write their backup data to a single disk library that appears identical to each of their tape libraries dedicated to individual backup applications.
The EMC Disk Library helps customers recover rapidly from any data loss or outage with minimal effort while decreasing operational costs.
More than 70 petabytes of EMC Disk Library capacity have been deployed in just over two years," said Barry Ader, senior director, Storage Platform Marketing, EMC Corporation.
Streaming video with real-time recovery will also be demonstrated on an IBM system backed up to a NetVault server running IBM OpenPower with Red Hat Enterprise Linux using NetVault Virtual Disk Library
(VDL) software to achieve disk-based data protection.
Time Navigator(TM) with the EMC(R) CLARiiON(R) Disk Library offers easy adoption of disk-to-disk-to-tape data protection strategies
a leader in data protection for information lifecycle management (ILM), today announced it has tested and qualified the EMC CLARiiON Disk Library disk-to-disk backup system for use with Atempo's Time Navigator(TM).
The CN 2000 and ONLINE Metro have undergone rigorous interoperability testing and have been qualified by EMC as E-Lab Tested(TM) with EMC(R) Symmetrix(R) and EMC CLARiiON(R) networked storage systems, using EMC Symmetrix Remote Data Facility (SRDF(R)) in Fibre Channel and ESCON(R) environments, and EMC MirrorView(TM), EMC SAN Copy(TM) software and EMC CLARiiON Disk Library
in Fibre Channel environments.
Marks concluded, "But because only one can wear the crown, we're awarding our Editor's Choice to the IPStor-based EMC Clariion DL300 Disk Library
for capacity, support, and overall fit and finish.
During the second quarter, EMC introduced two new, low-cost entry-level storage solutions -- EMC CLARiiON AX100 ("Piranha") and EMC NetWin 110 -- as well as EMC CLARiiON Disk Library
, which extends backup-to-disk benefits to traditional backup environments.
