Demonstrates backup virtualization solution for IBM mainframe

Tributary Systems, Inc., an IBM® Solution Reseller and a global leader in storage solutions, has entered the IBM mainframe market. Tributary Systems is demonstrating its Storage Director™/ViTAL™ Backup Virtualization solution for the zOS IBM mainframe in Booth 220 at the SHARE user group Expo at the Anaheim Hilton.

“The ViTAL backup virtualization solution is already running in many of our Fortune 20 customers’ data centers, and this native interface brings our solutions to the IBM mainframe platform as well,” said Shawn Sabanayagam, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tributary Systems, Inc. “Storage Director/ViTAL enables companies with heterogeneous data centers to implement a single solution with a single point of control. Storage Director/ViTAL helps them manage the unrelenting growth of data with ease; improve backup/restore performance, and scale their environments cost-effectively.”

The zOS IBM mainframe solution extends the Tributary Systems portfolio, which already includes virtual storage solutions for HP NonStop (Tandem), HP Open VMS, IBM iSeries (AS/400, Power i), Power Systems AIX, Linux, UNIX, and Windows.

Storage Director/ViTAL is a high-availability, backup virtualization and consolidation solution for heterogeneous IT environments. It enables customers with disparate data center environments and with legacy storage hardware backing up environments running different operating systems, to consolidate and reduce both storage infrastructure and maintenance costs.

Policy-based, Storage Director/ViTAL has an advanced architecture that enables fully automated data backup to disk, data deduplication technology, and tape resources. It also supports advanced replication capabilities for off-site data protection, and restore operations from remote, unmanned, lights-out data centers. By separating the backup infrastructure from the backup host, Storage Director/ViTAL allows customers to migrate their legacy environments to state-of-the-art technologies.

Tributary Systems, Inc., based in Bedford, Texas, delivers data protection with vision. Its solutions allow companies to optimize operating costs and performance by combining the visibility of comprehensive storage analytics with highly scalable and easily manageable backup and restore functions.
