TapeStream® Virtual Tape Library Solution

TapeStream

Innovative Virtual Tape Library Solution. Now more powerful than ever.

TapeStream® — SPEED, RELIABILITY, SIMPLICITY and SAVINGS

TapeStream® uses enhanced data compaction with up to 80% reduction in data storage and a file location index to reduce the time to locate individual files. TapeStream® is FAST and dramatically reduces batch job time! No massive power consumption. No special air conditioning. The TapeStream® server connects directly to your mainframe using either a FICON or ESCON channel. With TapeStream® you can easily scale the solution to your needs.

TapeStream® uses your enterprise data storage solution for tape images. It improves reliability by using 64-bit CRC technology on each block of data. Tape volume changes are almost instantaneous. Volumes are “mounted” immediately using local disk storage. TapeStream® is very simple to install, configure and use. It uses a TN3270 console management service that can be accessed directly from the mainframe or your enterprise chosen client. The TapeStream® operations management interface works like your other mainframe support products, with intuitive user interfaces.

TapeStream® uses your enterprise SAN/NAS appliance for tape volume image storage.

TapeStream® automated tape management reduces tape mount time and eliminates operator intervention. All tape volume management functions can be automated through batch jobs.

TapeStream® works with existing mainframe tape management systems and all leading dump/restore utility software. TapeStream® does not require any JCL or additional mainframe software.

TapeStream® provides IBM 3480, and 3490E tape emulation using FICON or ESCON channel support.
