IT managers are broadly exploiting virtual server infrastructures -- hypervisors -- to improve efficiency, provide for transparent mobility, and give common manageability and capabilities regardless of type of server hardware being used. These same robust benefits are now available for virtual storage infrastructures with the IBM storage hypervisor (System Storage SAN Volume Controller and its management console the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center).
Listen to the webcast to understand how the IBM storage hypervisor can be a complimentary next step in the overall IT environment virtualization process.
Click and learn more about IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller and IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. Please reach out to IBM sales or IBM business partners to understand how IBM storage hypervisor solution can benefit your organization's effort to virtualize and efficiently manage storage.

On May 31 2011, IBM announced the availability of Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery, a bundle of ten Tivoli Storage Manager and Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack products, with an easy to order, deploy and manage capacity-based pricing model.
With this offering, you can deploy any of ten different solution components, in any location and quantity to meet the unique data protection and recovery needs across a wide range of systems, applications and service level requirements. The pricing is based on a tiered Terabyte metric that measures the amount of data managed in Tivoli Storage Manager primary storage pools and FastBack repositories. License costs can be dramatically reduced through the use of built-in source and target data deduplication, and there is no charge for duplicate copies of the data that may be used for disaster recovery, testing, data mining and other purposes.
The individual products included in this comprehensive package are:
Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition : Provides core backup/restore for a wide range of operating systems; broad support for tiers of storage; NDMP, IBM DB2® and Informix® support; source and target deduplication; advanced disaster recovery planning; and much more.
Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases : Performs online, consistent and centralized backups for Oracle and SQL to avoid downtime; protect vital enterprise data infrastructure and minimize operation costs.
Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise Resource Planning : Performs online, consistent and centralized backups for SAP environments.
Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail : Protects data on email servers running Lotus® Domino® or Microsoft® Exchange, with granular restore of Exchange email objects.
Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments : Automatically discovers and protects VMware virtual machines; offloads backup workloads to a centralized server and enables flexible, near-instant recovery.
Tivoli Storage Manager for Space Management : Moves inactive data to reclaim online disk space for important active data; frees administrators from manual file system pruning tasks; and defers the need to purchase additional disk storage.
Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks : Provides high-performance backup/restore by removing data transfer from the LAN.
Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack : Provides efficient block-level incremental backup and near-instant restore for critical Microsoft Windows® and Linux® servers and applications, in the data center and in remote offices.
Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Microsoft Exchange : Provides the ability to recover individual Microsoft Exchange objects such as email, attachments, calendar entries, contacts and tasks.
Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Bare Machine Recovery : Provides operating system volume recovery following a disaster or catastrophic server failure, fully restoring Windows and Linux systems within an hour.
Existing customers of Tivoli Storage Manager are also able to take advantage of this new pricing model, which will eliminate the need to count Processor Value Units and help to gain better visibility and control of future licensing costs. For more information on converting to this model, please contact your IBM Sales Rep or Business Partner.
Later this week, I will post a list of the advanced capabilities that Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery can bring to your IT environment with the overall benefits of reducing data growth, improving operational efficiency and dramatically reducing costs.

Join us on May 17th at 1: p.m. Eastern / 10:00 a.m. Pacific........to hear all about Smarter Storage & Data Management for Virtual Server Environments
Featured Speakers: Richard Vining, IBM Tivoli Storage Product Marketing Manager & John Connor, IBM Tivoli Storage Product Manager
There is a huge transformation happening in IT organizations! These organizations are migrating from single-purpose physical servers to consolidated virtual machine technologies. The benefits of virtualization are many: cutting acquisition, management and facilities costs by reducing the number of physical machines; increasing service levels through faster server provisioning; and enabling new delivery models such as cloud services. However, virtualizing servers does not reduce the amount of data that is created and stored; actually it can have the opposite effect as virtual machines are moved or de-provisioned. This presentation will describe smarter ways of managing all this data and the infrastructure that stores it, and feature IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center family of products.
