How it works ?

The IBM i Tape Management Systems (TMS) such as BRMS use our LMS Appliance to communicate with the Virtual (VTL) or Physical Tape Libraries. The software client send the commands through TCP/IP to our LMS Appliance that is directly connected to the Tape systems.

Take note that only the operational commands is managed by our client and appliance. The Data flow goes through Fiber Channel that is directly attached to the IBM System i and to the Backup Tape system to keep the best performance possible.
