By Gil Peleg, CEO at Model9
Mainframe cold storage based on disks and tapes is typically expensive and rigid. Model9, an AWS Partner Network (APN) Advanced Technology Partner, improves the economics and flexibility by leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) storage for archival, backup, and recovery of mainframe data.
Without any additional hardware component, Model9 securely transfers mainframe backup or archive data from the mainframe to AWS Cloud storage over TCP/IP.
In this post, I will describe the Model9 solution along with customer use cases and benefits. Model9 enables mainframe customers to leverage modern cloud technologies and economics to reduce data recovery risks and improve application availability by providing a software-defined solution for archive, backup, and recovery directly from AWS.
