Switch to 3590Tape with Ease!
With the manufacturer's announcement (see below) of the Services Withdrawal (End of Support) for 3590 physical tape drives, we'd like to highlight our success with transitioning many mainframe data centers to 3590 virtual tape. Luminex's 3590 Mainframe Virtual Tape is application transparent, so no changes are required in tape applications for batch processing, HSM, archiving, backup or recovery.

Also, the transition from physical to virtual tape is easily facilitated by Luminex's proven tape migration tools and services, so that the original tape VOLSER numbers and historical information are preserved in the new virtual tape environment.
Competively priced solutions are available with either FICON or ESCON mainframe connectivity.
