AWS Storage Gateway now supports IBM Spectrum Protect 8.1.10 on Tape Gateway, enabling you to backup and archive data from IBM Spectrum Protect to AWS without changing your backup workflows. With this announcement, Tape Gateway supports IBM Spectrum Protect 8.1.10 running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) version 7.6 or later, or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) version 12, Service Pack 2 or later, and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 or Microsoft Windows Server 2016.

Tape Gateway supports all leading backup applications and enables you to replace using physical tapes on premises with virtual tapes in AWS without changing backup workflows. Tape Gateway caches data on premises for low latency access, compresses and encrypts data in transit to AWS, and transitions virtual tapes to Amazon S3 Glacier or Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive to minimize storage costs.
