FDR/UPSTREAM, The ONLY File Level z/OS Data Protection Solution for Linux on z Systems
Project and Program: SHARE-wide Events
, SHARE Atlanta 2016
Data Protection continues to be the #1 Pain point, whether the platform is Linux for z Systems or open systems. The continued dominance of BIG DATA has created a tremendous challenge for corporate datacenters to manage and protect their most important corporate asset; their data. The z/OS mainframe with its unmatched reliability and well restricted and protected environment provides an excellent platform for data protection.
Come learn about Innovation Data Processing’s solution, FDR/UPSTREAM data protection for Linux on z Systems. Using the z/OS mainframe as the data protection storage server, UPSTREAM leverages HiperSockets, z/OS Virtual Tape and tape management, with superior mainframe reliability for data protection for Linux on z Systems and other open systems platforms.
This session will provide a demo of the new administrative tool, the FDR/UPSTREAM WebPortal.
Besides providing Web Access, the Web Portal also has a set of data gathering tasks running that contact backup clients and also contacts the storage servers to obtain statistics, scan backup versions, collect data set information and history, and so on. All of this is gathered into a database and becomes the foundation for the new Web Services provided. Some of the features are:
. Automated client upgrades
. Edit Client Configurations
. Data Protected Storage Reporting
- TB protected, # of Files, # of Tapes
. Administrative Roles Assigned
. Restores by Non-Admin personnel
. Simple and Improved Restores
. ORACLE RMAN configuration
Other points of discussion will be the Synthetic Differential, a significant Enhancement to Innovation’s Synthetic Full Merge algorithm. This introduces the Merge to Master concept that substantially reduces backend tape processing, CPU usage, and wall clock time while not impacting the level of protection.-Patrick Fitzsimmons-Innovation Data Processing
