LUMINEX And Nirvanix Introduce World's First Cloud-Based Tape Vaulting Solution For Mainframe Environments

Using CloudSAFE, data centers can leverage the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network as a secure remote repository for critical data

ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SHARE CONFERENCE -- LUMINEX SOFTWARE, INC., the worldwide leader in Modern Mainframe Virtual Tape(TM) solutions, and Nirvanix, the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud storage services, today announced the world's first cloud-based tape vaulting solution designed specifically for mainframe environments. No longer limited to open or distributed systems, now mainframe customers can securely store mainframe tape volumes in the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network(TM) and access them globally.

LUMINEX CloudSAFE(TM), a complement to the company's industry-leading Channel Gateway mainframe virtual tape solution, enables customers to vault mainframe tape volumes in the enterprise-proven, globally dispersed Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network to eliminate the cost of physical tape media, shipping and off-site storage. Equally important, storage and access to the vaulted copies of tape data is not restricted to local or regional off-site physical tape vaults. Tape data can be stored then accessed from anywhere via the Nirvanix Cloud, which cost-effectively addresses business requirements to secure mission-critical data out-of-region from primary datacenter operations.

"Mainframe customers now have a new option for secure offsite storage of mission-critical data," said Scott Genereux, President and CEO, Nirvanix. "With LUMINEX CloudSAFE, they can gain the same economic benefits, including consumption-based pricing, of storing, securing and accessing data via the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network as our open and distributed systems users and truly implement an enterprise-wide cloud storage strategy."

"LUMINEX continues to drive the industry forward with customer-focused innovation," said Arthur Tolsma, CEO at LUMINEX. "By partnering with Nirvanix we are extending the best-of-breed capabilities available to mainframe datacenters with simple and cost-effective solutions to solve real data management challenges."

Using CloudSAFE, data centers can leverage the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network as a secure remote repository for critical data. Data stored with Nirvanix is quickly and easily saved at one or more secure, geographically dispersed locations, while remaining instantly accessible for compliance and business needs. Data is also encrypted in-flight and at rest for extreme levels of data protection and security. LUMINEX CloudSAFE can be utilized with any Nirvanix cloud storage services deployment options--Public, Hybrid and Private.

The new solution will be available for all mainframe customers during the fourth quarter of 2012 and supports z/OS, z/VM, z/VSE, and S/390 operating systems.
