Transparent to the Host
The Mainframe host has no awareness of the Tape Migration Engine and continues with its normal operations. At the completion of the migration import, the Tape Migration Engine is FICON attached to the Mainframe host and becomes the new Virtual Tape Library, and the original tape infrastructure can then be decommissioned.
All Mainframe tape data read by the Tape Migration Engine is simultaneously compressed and encrypted before being stored on disk.
If protecting redundant copies of data at various geographic locations is a requirement, the Migration Engine will also immediately begin securely replicating the newly migrated data to a remote SecureAgent VTL.
The Tape Migration Engine provides the fastest, most efficient and most secure method of moving your data out of an existing Tape Library and into a new State-of-the-Art SecureAgent VTL.
Want to extend the life of your existing Tape Libraries? Or eliminate the need for costly upgrades by instead using an inexpensive method to modernize your tape storage and archiving capabilities?
SecureAgent has an additional module within the Tape Migration Engine which will extend the life of your existing Tape Libraries by providing an interface to the Cloud. The Tape Migration Engine can read any tape volumes from the Tape Library based on a variety of specified criteria, and automatically convert them to Encrypted Cloud Objects and store them at any remote Cloud archive provider.
