Data centers across enterprises are witnessing unprecedented data growth, which translates to increased costs and management complexity. One of the leading analyst groups, the Evaluator Group, has analyzed the storage resource management (SRM) software space and created a detailed insight report to outline how the SRM segment is evolving, and why it is important that storage managers need to have a storage strategy aided with a comprehensive tool such as IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center to better manage future challenges.

What's more? In addition to simplified management of capacity, performance and provisioning of storage infrastructure, Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 also enables comprehensive storage replication management.
In many enterprises today, storage replication is riddled with manual errors and/or poorly written in-house scripts that often provide no view of overall copy environment status. Additionally, setup and ongoing management of large-scale copy services is increasingly becoming cumbersome.
To learn more about TPC's advanced replication management capabilities, tune into the upcoming webinar "Simplified storage replication for high data availability" through Tivoli User Community on Nov 13, 2012 at 11AM ET. Click here to register for this event.

I've written about STORServer before. They are an IBM Ready-for-Tivoli Software Certified Business Partner, that offers a range of backup and recovery appliances that leverage IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) software. The sweet value add from STORServer, besides putting all the hardware and software together for you, is the nice, simple user interface that they've built in front of TSM.
Earlier this year, STORServer announced that they would offer the STORServer Console (SSC) as standalone software, enabling customers or other integrators to build their own TSM based backup appliances. SSC allows Tivoli Storage Manager users to operate their environment entirely from an easy-to-use interface, while maintaining the latest robust, feature-rich capabilities of TSM. The software gives nearly any administrator or operator the ability to manage and monitor their TSM environment with simplicity.
STORServer is now announcing the availability of STORServer Console v3.0 (SSC), which supports client node replication, providing the ability to incrementally replicate a backup client node’s data from one TSM server (source) to a remote TSM server (target) for disaster recovery. In addition, numerous enhancements have been made to SSC v3.0 reports, including:
STORServer is offering a free 45-day demo license at http://storserver.com/STORServerConsole.aspx. You can read the full press release here.
