3590 Tape Drive End of Support - Transitioning from 3590 Physical Tape to Virtual Tape

For several years, 3590 physical tape users have been transitioning to 3590 virtual tape to take advantage of a new generation of features, options and innovations. With the impending plans for the 3590's physical tape drive End of Support, many more will be looking to do the same, non-disruptively, and without making changes to applications.

Attend this session to learn how others have switched from physical to virtual tape and how the transition has improved tape security, disaster recovery preparedness and resilience. The discussion will include topics such as migration, remote replication and monitoring, the value of deduplication, and continuous availability.
