Oracle announces the all new StorageTek Virtual Storage Manager (VSM) 7 System, the most secure and scalable data protection solution for mainframe and heterogeneous systems with the additional capability to provide fully automated tiering directly to the public cloud. Furthermore, Oracle’s StorageTek VSM 7 System has been architected to seamlessly integrate with Oracle Storage Cloud Service—Object Storage and Oracle Storage Cloud Service – Archive Service and provides storage administrators with a built-in cloud strategy. With Oracle, cloud storage is now as accessible as on-premise storage.
“In the past, data protection solutions were designed to deal with exponential data growth on-premises, but an entirely different dynamic drove the design of the VSM 7,” said James Cates, senior vice president, Archive Product Development, Oracle. “The core is still there—elevated performance, twice the capacity, a higher degree of scalability, but we saw a gap in the market, so we developed Engineered Cloud Tiering to enable mainframe users to take advantage of cloud economics.”
“With its VSM 7, Oracle is bringing mainframe-caliber data protection to heterogeneous systems users, and its native tiering to the Oracle Cloud’s storage and archive services will no doubt extend the market potential,” said Mark Peters, practice director and senior analyst, ESG. "Furthermore, the enterprise-caliber Oracle Cloud adds a compelling and affordable storage alternative for mainframe customers.”
Organizations can experience these benefits:
Oracle is also addressing the needs of mission critical heterogeneous environments underserved by other solutions. Extending its enterprise-proven architecture to a broader customer base, Oracle is providing robust mainframe data protection capabilities with flexible disaster recovery options.
