In times of economic challenge, companies look for ways to optimize their often declining IT budgets. However you must not forget your dual responsibilities of supporting the business process while safe guarding the data that insures the resiliency of the business. Customers are being told multi-platform consolidation and virtualization (of servers, tape etc) will allow them to manage and store more data, at lower hardware, software and staffing costs. New physical tape offerings allow the consolidation of as much as 15TB on a single volume. Virtual tape solutions with and without de-duplication are another way to store the data files that insure the resiliency of your critical business applications.
This will be an interactive discussion of what features to look for in the tools that will allow you to migrate tape data sets from older physical tape and older VTLs to newer higher capacity physical tape and VTL solutions with de-duplication to reduce backstore.
The objective of this session is to help you…
Consider the benefits to your business of migration to new “tape” technology.
Determine what migration services you must deliver.
Select the right tools to move tape data files that will satisfy your business needs.
Measure the success of a tape migration.
Understand what a successful tape migration would look like.
