Why Store Third Copy and Archive Data in the Cloud?
Cloud storage is ideal for third copy and archive data that falls into the category of "write once, read seldom." Although it is infrequently accessed, government and compliance policies such as HIPPA, SEC, and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), require highly secure, long-term retention of data that can result in the need for ever-increasing storage capacity. CloudTAPE HCP gives you a cost-effective storage option with on-demand flexibility to accommodate your growing data storage requirements.
Integrating third copy/archive of mainframe data into the enterprise's Private Cloud.
CloudTAPE HCP Offers More Value While Helping to Reduce Workloads
With features such as Luminex RepMon and optional WORM support, the ability to monitor, manage and protect your long-term data has never been easier. Not only does HCP include private cloud storage to keep an organization’s data secure, multi-tenancy features allow you to dedicate separate storage pools to each department for further protection and control.
When the solution is provided as a fully managed service for the entire enterprise, the workload and costs of updates and technology refreshes are significantly reduced. Furthermore, the extensive physical process of moving data to an off-site data center is eliminated.
