Advanced Recovery Capabilities for TSM Environments
IMPROVE RECOVERY POINT AND RECOVERY TIME OBJECTIVES
Every IT environment contains applications that are critical to the operations and resilience of the organization. Real pain is experienced when these applications go off-line, or when the data that they rely on is lost or corrupted. Traditional once-per-day backup may be leaving too much new data at risk of loss, and current volume-level recovery processes only extend downtime as all the data is restored following a system failure or other disaster.
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack performs non-disruptive block-level backups for critical Microsoft® Windows and Linux® applications, in the background with no backup window, as often as needed to assure data protection that meets business requirements. And FastBack provides near-instant recovery of entire volumes, enabling immediate and transparent access to protected data even while it is restored in the background.
TIGHT INTEGRATION WITH TIVOLI STORAGE MANAGER
With the release of Version 6.1.1, TSM FastBack can now be completely integrated into your Tivoli Storage Manager environment. From the TSM Administration Console, FastBack can be launched and managed; you can set FastBack backup policies and initiate restore operations; you view FastBack reports; and you can backup the FastBack repository into the TSM Server for long-term data management and retention.
TSM FastBack’s automation and ease-of-use make it an excellent choice for protecting and restoring Windows and Linux server data in remote and branch offices. With the new data deduplication capabilities included standard in FastBack v6.1.1, remote office data can now be efficiently and cost-effectively replicated over WAN to a central TSM Server. Fast and easy recovery can be accomplished in the remote office from the local FastBack Server, or in the central site from the TSM Server in disaster recovery situations. Your distributed data can now meet the same levels of protection and retention provided for your core applications through Tivoli Storage Manager.
Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack is an integral member of the TSM Family, providing advanced data protection and recovery capabilities across the entire organization from a single administrator interface.
