"Modernizing IBM i Operations" by Chris Bremer, 
Chief Technology Officer, Dynamic Solutions International 

Modernization and automation are key components to effectively manage your business continuity and disaster recovery solutions for data storage. Our expertise is in the design and architecture of Virtual Tape Library (VTL) systems, deduplication VTL systems, or even hybrid systems, which combine VTL with a tape solution for archival purposes. We will illustrate how to set up a seamless backup and disaster recovery solution between multiple sites which is an approach to data security that is currently in operation with hundreds of our clients today. 

Specific Topics will include: 
 - Modernization of ancillary backup without affecting core processes including, replication, archive, deduplication and tape stacking 
 - Policy management 
 - BCDR - Business continuity disaster recovery and what it means for you 

 We’ll also discuss the benefits of modernization and how to make the business case with the help of many real-world examples.
