    Pattern Overview

    Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin) is the most advanced system backup and recovery solution available for Linux and the only solution for Linux on Power (big endian and little endian). SBAdmin is more than a command-line utility and provides complete backup management without the need for a separate NIM server.

    SBAdmin was designed not only to backup user data, but to also provide the ability to reinstall a entire system from while providing the flexibility to restore the backup onto a dissimilar hardware and/or storage.

    Adaptable System Recovery (ASR): Unlike several "disk image" backup tools, SBAdmin understands your operating system configuration. When reinstalling from a backup, the configuration may be tailored to work with your new hardware configuration. In addition, you can completely re-customize your system during the system installation process.

    SBAdmin can also be integrated with IBM Spectrum Protect (formerly TSM).
