Secure Data Solution®
Secure Data Solution®
(SDS) is a patented and patent-pending high performance virtual tape
and disaster recovery system that allows an organization to
efficiently store and retrieve compressed and encrypted virtual tape
images (VTIs). The SDS appears as tape units to attached computer
systems; however in actuality, the virtual
tape images are compressed and encrypted files that permanently reside
on the Secure Data Solution’s disk arrays.
They can also be transmitted to any other remote Secure Data Solutions
site for disaster recovery purposes, or can be shared by
applications that can process these VTIs residing on computers
systems that are connected to the SDS at these remote sites. The
Secure Data Solution emulates commonly installed tape drive. It can
be connected to large-scale IBM® mainframes that utilize the MVS or VSE operating
systems, IBM AS/400s, and Open Systems such as Solaris, Linux and
UNIX platforms and supports TSM. A single Secure Data Solution can
store tape images that have been created by any combination of these
supported systems and drives. This gives any organization the best
available security tailored to its needs. Alternatively, SDS Data
Mover will transmit the encrypted data via IP-based network to DASD
arrays at remote sites. At these remote sites, the virtual tapes can
be converted and written to real tapes. SDS normally resides in a
standard communication rack and requires very few resources. Remote
SDS can be installed anywhere according to customer's needs.
A single operator can manage the entire system. SDS grows with the
organizations needs and always protects prior investments. Just add
the necessary storage or the necessary SDS Client Interfaces to
support additional sites, different systems and storage. The whole
solution is easily field upgradable with no planned obsolescence.
The Secure Data Solution is not only very cost effective and extremely
scalable it also fits to any need and size.
By eliminating manual handling and transportation of tapes staff can
It also avoids the risk of theft and loss of data and guarantees
reliable and rapid access to data. Data will always be stored or
transmitted only in encrypted form. All this together with foolproof
mounting and handling of tapes makes SDS to an unmatched solution
for secure storing, recovering and archiving enterprise data.
