Enable TS7700 for Open Systems bei Adding the S3 Protocol

The TS700 has everything enterprise customers need. It has backend tape, it is a grid, it has all replication capabilities and so on. It could be the perfect system for multipetabyte data from open systems, e.g. tiering from data to tape out of cos, or other s3 systems who are already capable of doing so by having a working lifecycle management. Backend for different backup systems like comvault, veeam, Cohesity or even SPP. It would be the perfect match. All other systems on the market like Point Archival Gateway, Spectra Logic Black Pearl and even the newest ibm solutions in development have to many issues for enterprise customers.
