      Cyber Data Protection for mainframe data

      Dell EMC SnapVX and zDP technology enables companies to restore DASD and virtual tape data in the event of a cyber attack while minimizing the amount of capacity and time required to do so.

      • Dell EMC SnapVX and zDP technologies provides users with immediate access to point-in-time copies of data in the event of a cyber attack
      • PowerMax DASD allows users to choose scheduling frequencies that match recovery requirements; as granular as every five minutes with an option to make some or all snapshots
      • DLm virtual tape with Power Protect DD storage enables recovery of tape data following a cyber attack, undetected data corruption or human error. Retention lock technology secures tape volume snapshots
      • Save time and expense by creating virtual cyber vaults as well as physical cyber vaults at the primary site, disaster recovery site, or a dedicated cyber recovery location
      • Time to recover from a cyber event is minimized. Data snapshots are pointer-based and do not require data be copied, moved, or rebuilt using journals
    • Mainframe Storage with DASD
