Features - Storage

  • Establishing an archival retention strategy is a key element to an effective document imaging solution. This may require the migration of data from an existing storage device (IBM 3995 / 3996 optical libraries for example). RVI customers can archive their image data to the IBM i DASD/IFS, a network attached device (Windows Server, NAS or SAN) or one of the tested / supported Write Once Read Many (WORM) storage options:
       
    Alliance Storage Technologies uses UDO(Ultra Density Optical technology that provides WORM protection. Options include the G-Series optical libraries and the Archive Appliance / Express models. The Alliance network appliance devices use a combination of RAID and UDO technologies.

    New Storage Management Solution Secure Archive Manager (SAM) is a compliant archiving appliance, which meets government, industry and regulatory requirements for maintaining records. SAM enables you to meet compliance requirements with WORM, retention, encryption, legal hold, audit tracking, and file disposition. SAM also helps the IT organization deliver a more secure, flexible and efficient approach to long term archiving needs using traditional storage, cloud storage and object storage. SAM is a great upgrade from optical archives, InfiniVault or Centera.

    Competitive approaches lock the customer into expensive and proprietary storage hardware. The software architecture of SAM works well on a VM or on a physical server. SAM makes it easy to protect data today and also move it forward to new storage technologies in the future.

  • IBM has provided a virtual optical library solution for IBM i 7.1 that essentially emulates the 3995/3996 infrastructure using the /QOPT file system to access virtual optical volumes on the IBM i managed disk (stored on IFS).

    This solution has the following benefits:

    -No changes required to your existing optical-based applications , the same file system and volume names are maintained allowing the application (s) to continue to access objects from the virtual volumes and IBM i disk speed access times.

    -Full support of RAID and/or mirrored disk on IBM i

    -Use of IBM i backup/restore process to either IBM i tape or DVD

    -Ability to maintain HA/DR copies easily on secondary IBM i systems

    -Full worm compatibility

Your RVI Certified Business Partner can provide additional product information, configurations and pricing for these various storage options. For additional information and a quote for conversion custom coding, please call RVI Technical Support at 318-449-4579 . Additionally, IBM has a high speed optical copy utility that performs a stream copy from physical optical to the replacement device being used by the customer. This solution provides the fastest and most efficient method of migration off of 3995/3996/Plasmon direct attached jukeboxes. Note that the copy utility will run on V5R4, 6.1, or 7.1. A custom code quote can be provided with or without the IBM high speed optical copy utility.
