    IBM® SmartCloud® Storage Access (SCSA) is an IBM storage cloud management software product that enables cloud service with virtualization and automation. IBM Linear Tape File System™ Enterprise Edition (LTFS EE) can use LTFS for the policy management of tape as a storage tier in an IBM General Parallel File System based (IBM GPFS™) environment, and helps encourage the usage of tape as a critical tier in storage solutions. Now, an LTFS EE tape tier can be integrated in to the SCSA managed storage cloud with IBM STG Lab Services. This IBM Web Doc describes how to add the value of tape to your storage cloud.
