Luminex High Performance Virtual Tape with HP Storage
Luminex Channel Gateway virtual tape control units have
been used with HP enterprise storage systems in mainframe
data centers for years. The solution combines application
transparent, industry leading control units from Luminex
with TBs or PBs of storage capacity on high performance,
highly available HP disk storage .
Tape workloads for batch processing, HSM and archiving
are dramatically improved by accessing tape data at virtual
tape (disk) speed instead of waiting for slower tape
drives or mechanical tape library robotics.
Backup and recovery is improved by compressing data
to reduce the storage used and replicating this tape
data electronically over WANs to remote disaster recovery
sites. So the delays and cost associated with physical
tape media, storage, shipping, tape drive and tape library
maintenance are eliminated.

units are available with HP EVA storage or HP D2D deduplication
