MMS Tape Management (MMS/tms) automatically tracks and manages tape inventory while managing tape resources. MMS/tms tracks all tapes when used and protects them from reuse until the user-defined retention has elapsed. An extensive tape information database provides unparalleled search capabilities for restore processes. MMS/tms installs seamlessly within minutes and uses native IBM® save/restore commands which eliminate costly and time-consuming implementation projects. MMS/tms minimizes training time by providing powerful and flexible functionality that is easy to implement, use and understand.

Features such as automatic device and tape library management ensure that jobs do not wait for resources while drives are sitting idle. Extensive data retention options make sure that the latest data retention regulations can be adhered to. Powerful network capabilities allow MMS/tms to manage and protect tapes on other System i™.

Simplicity, flexibility, ease of use and unparalleled tape protection make this the most powerful midrange tape management system available. This, coupled with the ability to communicate with other LXI MMS tape management systems, provides the most complete solution on the market today.
