EMC Extends VTL to Mainframes

ORLANDO, Fla. -- EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC - News), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today extended its industry-leading virtual tape library (VTL) capabilities to customers in mainframe environments with the introduction of the EMC Disk Library for Mainframe (EMC DLm). Delivering the industry's first 'tapeless' virtual tape system for use in IBM zSeries environments, the EMC DLm enables high-performance disk-based backup and recovery, batch processing and storage and eliminates the challenges associated with traditional tape-based operations to lower customers' data center operating costs.

"We introduced our EMC Disk Library portfolio four years ago, and today we have the largest open systems VTL installation base in the industry on the strength of our advanced capabilities and systems design," said Barbara Robidoux, Vice President of Product Marketing, EMC Storage Division. "With the EMC DLm, we are leveraging our rich mainframe technology heritage and proven expertise with VTLs to introduce a system that is easier to use, more scaleable and higher performing than the traditional tape-based VTL and tape library solutions commonly utilized by customers in mainframe environments."
