Overview: Josh Krischer & Associates together with the IBM development lab in Tel-Aviv performed a test of their ProtecTIER Virtual Tape Library solution and the new Native Replication technology. This white paper outlines the tests performed as well as the specifics of ProtecTIER itself.
IBM announced a native IP-based replication capability for IBM System Storage™ TS7650 ProtecTIER Gateways and Appliances. This new enhancement functionality replicates virtual tape cartridges created at a primary site to a remote location. It offers the flexibility to replicate or move all or some virtual tape cartridges at a preset time and at the required priority. ProtecTIER is a leading enterprise-suitable deduplication technology which IBM required from Diligent in 2008 and continues to develop and enhance at a remarkable pace. Unlike many instances where a company’s acquisition was followed by an exodus of people, all Diligent staff were integrated into IBM, which explains the smooth and even accelerated road map execution.
