Little Falls, N.J. August 5, 2008–INNOVATION Data Processing, Inc.
announced today that current releases of its non-disruptive business
data protection, business continuance and storage resource management solutions
are shipping with support for the new IBM System z10 mainframe and just announced
z/OS 1.10 operating system; ready to help enterprise customers of all sizes improve
availability, survivability, security and employ Green technologies.
“Our customers tell us they need 24 x 7 x 365 availability, the capability to
sustain application growth, meet privileged information protection responsibilities
and contain cost”, said Thomas J Meehan, INNOVATION Data Processing, Vice President,
Advance Technology. “And that is exactly the features we see IBM providing in the new
IBM z10 processors and z/OS 1.10 operating system. This is an announcement of a significant
delivery. There is a lot under the covers in this release of the z/OS that is laying a foundation
for the future. Consequently depending which INNOVATION products they are running, z/OS 1.10
customers may have to come up on new release. Our solutions make it happen but its IBM System
z hardware and z/OS software providing the facilities our solutions employ to consolidate and
conserve resources, improve scalability, boost performance, improve usability, prevent unauthorized
access and preserve uninterrupted access to data.” Meehan adds.
“PCIDSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act), GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act) and other privileged information and personal
identity protection regulations require banks, card payment service providers, computer services
providers, educational institutions, financial intuitions, government agencies, hospitals, insurance
companies, telecommunication and a host of others to have data disposal plans. Consequently, according
to Meehan, FDRERASE is already quite popular with organizations that must comply with these data
protection regulations as they have a responsibility to securely erase disks when disposing of
them, repurposing systems and, of increasing concern, on leaving a DR site. FDRERASE is always
going to be the fastest way to securely erase specific disk volumes.”
Meehan adding, “now that FDRERASE/OPEN, which comes complete with History Reports that document
erase and verification to satisfy the most stringent requirements, has government certification
it is a user’s top choice when it comes to meeting the compliance requirements on open systems
just as FDRERASE for z/OS is for mainframe storage.”
