DataStream Intelligence™

Optimize Compression and Deduplication, Leverage Metadata

DataStream Intelligence is part of the advanced architecture of Luminex's industry-leading MVT and CGX mainframe virtual tape solutions. DataStream Intelligence enables customers to maximize compression and deduplication rates, making remote replication of all tape data practical and more affordable. Storage capacity requirements are also reduced, enabling customers to minimize storage costs at both the primary data center and disaster recovery sites.

For CloudTAPE users, DataStream Intelligence also collects VOLSER metadata, such as creation/replication dates, tape size and tape label (DSN), and adds it to the stored object’s metadata, enabling it to be leveraged by cloud-based applications.

Luminex Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) provide tape studies, analyzing TMC and SMF data, to determine the optimium storage capacity and replication bandwidth for each customer's environment. Our experience with hundreds of reference sites worldwide enables our SMEs to determine the amount of compression or deduplication that can be achieved before implementing a solution, ensuring that Luminex customers have the room to successfully grow and thrive for years to come.
