Mainframe Native Drive Market Segmentation
Segment Description:
Small Shops
•
•
No virtual
Small number of native drives
•
•
•
•
•
•
Typically very small mainframe installations
Native tape viewed as lowest cost alternative
Typically limited growth environments
Stable mainframe environments
Typically migrating off mainframe to open systems
Mainframe often viewed as non-strategic
Current Customer Trends:
1. Migrate to Virtual to low cost Hydra
• Smaller cache size options available at lower pricing
• TS7720(T) means that tape can be added dynamically
2. ProtecTIER Mainframe Edition
• Low cost mainframe virtualization
‒ Enables deduplication for the mainframe
‒ Provides open systems and mainframe virtualization in a single appliance

Engine
1. Hydra Upgrade: Upgrade virtual to accommodate native drive workload
• New 8 Gbps FICON provides the capability to consolidate devices
• Use GRID to make second copy of former native tape workload to eliminate the need for Iron Mountain
• Use Hydra cartridge export facility if physical tape copies are required
2. Use Hydra as a C07 replacement
• Add physical tape to virtual environment for enhanced scaling and economics
• Use Hydra cartridge export facility to create off-site cartridges

Customer Benefits
•
•
•
Most clients utilize native tape simply due to the high
performance of today’s native drives or for export. Today with 8
GB FICON, these workloads can directed to a TS7700 and
replicated using GRID or sent to a TS7720T with copy export.
Infrastructure simplification
Reduced hardware costs
GRID replication eliminates the need for physical tape trucking

Current Customer Trends:
1. Re-evaluate all native tape workloads: Migrate as many as possible to virtual
• Some native workloads now suitable for a 8 Gb FICON Hydra
• Some of workload can be exported via Cartridge Export Facility
2. Strengthen native tape environment
• Evaluate throughput requirements of native drive workload using the sizer
• Anticipate potential future needs
‒ Upgrade C06 to C07 before December
‒ Add additional C07 as required
‒ Upgrade older Jaguar technology
