Disk-based mainframe virtual tape products and technologies provider Luminex Software and enterprise-class cloud storage services provider, Nirvanix have introduced cloud-based tape vaulting application for mainframe environments.
The application named Luminex CloudSAFE will allow mainframe customers to securely store mainframe tape volumes in the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network and access them globally which were earlier limited to open or distributed systems.
Luminex CloudSAFE will complement company’s Channel Gateway mainframe virtual tape application, which will allow customers to vault mainframe tape volumes in Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network to eliminate the cost of physical tape media, shipping and off-site storage.
Nirvanix said that storage and access to the vaulted copies of tape data is not restricted to local or regional off-site physical tape vaults.
Nirvanix president and CEO Scott Genereux said that mainframe customers now have a new option for secure offsite storage of mission-critical data.
"With LUMINEX CloudSAFE, they can gain the same economic benefits, including consumption-based pricing, of storing, securing and accessing data via the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network as our open and distributed systems users and truly implement an enterprise-wide cloud storage strategy," Genereux said.
