Because mainframe storage technology is unique to mainframes it’s really very expensive. ?To reduce the cost of storage, mainframe owners have to archive their data to offline media, making it unavailable for, well, anything. ?Alternatively they resort to ETL to move it to conventional technologies, but you don’t need us to tell you how nasty?that is.
eD3P has a controller that enables the seamless movement of mainframe data to the exact same storage technology used for Windows and Linux systems. ?That represents a cost saving of over 90% and makes the data immediately available for analysis and other uses. ?There’s no ETL, no migration, conversion or translation. ?It’s just native mainframe data moving from there to here to Cloud and back again. ?Clever eh?
