COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Jan. 28, 2014) –– STORServer®, the leading provider of proven data backup solutions, is now offering customers the chance to upgrade their IBM Tivoli Storage Manager environments to version 7 for free with the purchase of any qualifying STORServer Backup Appliance. The newest version of TSM offers deduplication, node replication, high availability and more.
Using its proven method of upgrading data protection environments, STORServer will update customers’ existing licenses on to its faster, more robust hardware at no cost. The company will install, configure and build the environment to meet the customer’s exact needs. The offer will end on April 30, 2014. TSM 5.x and 6.1 will no longer be supported by IBM in April 2014.
“Because TSM v7 needs new, more powerful computing power, we can offer our customers an upgrade or migration to the latest version when we provide them with the appliance to host TSM,” said Jarrett Potts, director of marketing for STORServer. “We first install the new appliance with TSM v7, and then migrate the existing TSM server over to the new system, allowing customers to have zero down time. Best of all, their staff doesn’t have to spend weeks or months in planning and migrating.”
STORServer also offers a data recovery guarantee ensuring that customers will not only get their data back in the event of a loss, but the data will be useable once it is recovered. In addition, the company provides every customer the opportunity to try out a backup appliance risk-free with its 30-day money back guarantee.
Powered by TSM and CommVault, STORServer offers a complete suite of enterprise backup appliances, software and services that solve today’s backup, archive and disaster recovery challenges. STORServer EBA 3100, 2100, 1100 and 800 recently took four out of five top positions in the DCIG 2012 Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide. After evaluating 66 products, DCIG felt that no other backup appliance came close to the EBA3100, placing it in a category of its own.
