AS/400 Backup to DIsk/Cloud

We use BRMS to tape today.  Love BRMS for tape management, file recovery, and for DR documentation.  Not necessarily interested in changing our backup product.

My budget is small and I am interested to see what we can do to reduce our dependency on tape (not eliminate), backup to disk, and  possibly intergrate with external storage such as AWS.

I believe there are 3rd party tools that manage the tape2disk and disk2tape integration.  Is anyone aware of vendors and tools in this space and have experience with them?

Cloudberry Server Backup may be what you have in mind.. point the source to your disk directory and the destination to AWS glacier

There's this

And these are the results of my coding experimentations with S3 on AS400. 5 years ago, but still relevant:

But the best, most reliable way would be to use the AWS Storage Gateway virtual appliance.

With AWS Storage gateway appliance, you will mount the appliance onto the iseries via NFS, backup into save files, and move them over to the gateway.

Or, maybe the iScsi virtual tape library will work for you
"The Virtual Tape Library exposes an industry standard iSCSI interface which provides your backup application with on-line access to the virtual tapes."

Haven't tried this one, but It Should Work (tm).
