Abstract: The IBM Virtualization Engine TS7700 Series is the latest in the line of tape virtualization products that has revolutionized the way mainframe customers utilize their tape resources. Security of the information stored on the internal disk subsystem used to virtualize tape has become important to many customers. The TS7700 internally uses a disk subsystem to store or cache virtual tape volumes. The IBM TS7700 disk subsystem models 3956-CC9 and 3956-CS9 have been enhanced to support encryption. These white papers describe the use of data encryption on these disk subsystems when used in the TS7700 Virtualization Engine (VE).
