IBM® Spectrum Protect™ (Tivoli Storage Manager) gives you centralized, automated data protection for physical, virtual, and cloud environments and is available for almost all platforms found in both office and datacenter operations. This incredibly powerful and proven storage solution is not just for large corporations anymore. Spectrum Protect’s scalability makes it a perfect solution for both large and small-to-medium enterprises.
STORServer software solutions, such as STORServer Console (SSC) and STORServer Virtual Machine Backup (VMB), are fully integrated with TSM to ensure the maximum data protection that TSM provides. Both products simplify interactions with TSM, enhance and extend TSM functions (scheduling, reporting, and troubleshooting, to name a few). These thoughtfully designed user interfaces accommodate both new and experienced users.
Key features of TSM:
- Backup and recovery management across the most complex IT environments.
- Policy-based management of backed up and archived data with granular control.
- Automatic data migration within the storage hierarchy.
- Advanced data reduction features that include progressive incremental backup, source and target data deduplication, compression, and tape management.
- Disaster recovery planning tools.
The following table outlines the features, advantages and benefits of the most widely used TSM capabilities.
|Backup and Recovery Management||Intelligent backups and restores utilizing a revolutionary progressive incremental backup and restore strategy, where only new and used files are backed up||Centralized protection based on smart-move and smart-store technology leading to faster backups and restores with less network and storage resources needed|
|Virtualized Storage Management||Policy-based management of file backup and archiving within virtual and associated pools, rather than tethered to specific media||Transparent data movement unhindered by long-term media restrictions, separating data and media management to their respective goals and objectives|
|Archive Management||Managed archives as a separate function from backup retention policies||Ability to easily protect and manage documents that need to be kept for a certain period of time|
|Advanced Data Reduction||Combines progressive-incremental backup, source and target data deduplication, compression and tape management to provide best-in-class data reduction||Reduces the costs of data storage, environmental requirements, and administration|
