At a glance

Enjoy the benefits of virtual tape technology by consolidating datasets before stacking logical volumes on physical devices.

Take complete control over the stacking process

Load and unload datasets, based on a logical and simulated approach

Automatically move and stack disaster recovery tapes, and electronically vault the data to your off-site devices

Extensive wild-card capabilities help automate the selection of input and output files and volumes

Reduce mount requirements when stacking datasets

Access data from tape without costly recalls

Consolidation tape datasets

Optimize your robotic tape devices

Dramatically reduce number of offsite tapes

Define rules based administration interactively


TapSaver capabilities designed to improve your tape storage management.

Tape dataset consolidation

Reduce the number of volumes in your tape library and then combine multiple datasets onto one tape, reel, or cartridge, saving you more than the cost of TapeSaver in most data centers.

Reduce number of offsite tapes

Reduce the number of required offsite storage slots to make further monetary savings and group related files in their tape libraries to help improve organization.

Improved efficiency from ATLs

Focus where it counts and manage the contents of any available automated tape library (ATL), increasing the capacity of the ATL from two to ten-fold.

Interactive definition of rules

Specify which datasets are candidates for stacking or moving, how related files are grouped on tapes, along with other operational parameters.

Standardized rules

Define rules that apply to every execution to enforce company-wide standards. You can have two separate sets of standards; one for tape datasets and another for DASD datasets.

Unattended implementation of rules

Set up rules that meet your objectives and integrate with any scheduling package to run jobs without any user intervention, for instance during off-peak hours.

Analysis of the effectiveness of rules

Review the potential effectiveness of a set of rules through using the Analysis function and decide which set most efficiently achieves your processing goals.

Generate pull lists

Generate two pull lists which, together, make stacking easy to implement. You retrieve the correct tapes quickly and sequence them in accordance with when they must be mounted.

Flexible, selective stacking

Gain adaptable control over the data in your tape library through flexibility in the kind of rules you create. You choose the tape medium, hardware type, and other datasets with which a dataset is stacked.

Cycle Control Dataset handling

Use the advanced TSCYCLE facility to defer tape scratching of multi-file volumes containing Cycle Control Datasets until all of the files on the volume have expired.

Dual copy

Create an additional copy of critical datasets after they are stacked or moved, and use them to act as a back-up copy.

Stacking from DASD

Use the optional DiskSaver component to select candidate disk datasets, stack them on tape, and delete the original disk copy.

Evaluate new media and devices

Make informed decisions on dataset migrations by proactively understanding the impact of moving deep archive data to enhanced capacity devices, such as StorageTek's Eagle, Redwood, and IBM's Magstar.

Scratch protection

Prevent premature expiration of secondary files by resetting the tape’s expiration date to the expiration date of the oldest file on the tape, ensuring the tape is not scratched until all datasets are expired.

Supported robotics

TapeSaver supports tape robots and their accompanying software from these vendors.
