In the IBM Thought Leadership Whitepaper, 10 Ways to Save Money with IBM TSM, “IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery simplifies and streamlines storage management, helping organizations control both the risks and costs of data protection and recovery.” This blog post visits the savings NetEx’s HyperIP offers by running TSM Replication, a feature of Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition and Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery, over the WAN.
Previous blog posts talk about the performance improvement of TSM replication over HyperIP (http://www.netex.com/blog/?p=206). The following chart describes the true performance of replication over HyperIP (data provided by NetEx):
HyperIP enables TSM replication to see near wire speed, over any distance, even over lossy WANs. With HyperIP’s block level compression, throughputs can literally exceed wire speed by as much as 6x; with lossy WANs, over 12x. This means a replication window that moves GB’s of data can be reduced from hours to minutes, without having to increase the bandwidth of the WAN links between remote TSM server nodes. Bandwidth savings alone can return the HyperIP investment in less than 3 months.
