For environments that generate a large number of tapes, the
Secure Data Solution® can write the compressed and
encrypted data directly to a fibre channel-attached 3590-model tape
drive, without additional handling by the host.
The resulting tapes can then be transported to an off-site storage
location. This configuration requires channel-attached devices that
handle the compression and encryption, as well as control the
writing of the tape images to the tape drives.
High-Volume, Off-Site Application
Another possible configuration allows you to transmit the compressed
and encrypted data over
a network to an off-site storage location, where it is written to tape
High-Volume Off-Site Application
Both the cost and time associated with transporting tapes are avoided
data is available almost immediately and at no additional cost.
