Cobalt Iron yesterday unveiled a new analytics-infused virtual tape library (VTL) solution that it says will optimize and bring IBM i backup and recovery operations into sync with the rest of the enterprise. The offering lets IBM i users back up their data to anywhere – including on-premise and the cloud backups, with automated replication in between — but without giving up IBM i-specific features delivered through existing tools like BRMS and native commands.
The Compass VTL feature is not a legacy stand-alone VTL appliance but serves as a software-agnostic tape ingest path for the Accelerator. This first-of-its-kind solution is uniquely innovative because it transforms the VTL into an integrated component of an end-to-end enterprise data protection solution.
Cobalt Iron Inc. announces that its Accelerators now support an even wider array of industry-leading storage platforms.
Reporting directly to Richard Spurlock, Cobalt Iron CEO and founder, Hurt will manage all marketing and product management activities for the fast-growing company.
