Simplifying Backup with a Powerful, Flexible Appliance

The Challenge:

Once IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager (TSM) was installed, DPAM soon realized it would need a way to simplify the backup application. While TSM is one of the most stable and scalable products for backup today, it also has a reputation for being too complex and hard to use.



Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART)

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) was ready to refresh its existing data backup appliance and software to take advantage of the newest IBM Spectrum Protect™ features and STORServer’s turnkey solution.

Since the initial implementation STORServer completed for the regional transit agency in 2010, the features of the IBM Spectrum Protect, formerly IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager (TSM), software have been greatly enhanced, including the change of the underlying software database to DB2®. The availability of this robust DB2 database, as well as IBM Spectrum Protect’s new deduplication feature designed to reduce backup storage requirements, prompted DART to upgrade its existing data storage configuration.

It was imperative to select the right partner for its data backup needs, as DART relies heavily on the data collected and reported by its radio and CAD/AVL bus dispatch system. The data tracks important metrics like on-time performance, which is analyzed and used in planning for scheduling, route assignments, vehicle assignments and to make other critical decisions.
