Backup AS/400 to disk and then to the cloud.

AS/400 backup
Cloud Backup
We want to be able to backup our AS/400 to disk and then be able to  put in either on our private cloud or a public cloud like Amazon storage or so. In case of a disaster we have the data available somewhere else in case something happens to the backup tapes . Does anyone know of a good solution for this, or has attempted this. The big thing for me is getting the AS/400 to backup to a disk. Once the data is on a disk, we should be able to move it anywhere we want.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have looked at Vault400, would work for shops under 1TB total storage. Then there is Nomax and a few others. I don’t think we are really supposed engage in active commerce here but I will send a link to this to a sellperson for these products and you and he can decide how to handle it.

    What is your i5/OS version/release level? Multiple options exist and are more varied with the current releases. Most of your objects can be saved into savefiles on disk and stored in a 'cloud'. You might be able to create virtual tape images also, if your system is recent enough. Be extremely careful in how you test any such solution though. Backing stuff up isn't nearly as tricky as getting it properly restored. That's an area where a commercial product may pay for itself. Tom

    Check out Kisco Info System's new product - i2S3. It may do what you want. It is designed to work with Amazon's Simple Storage Service.
