Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery is a bundled offering delivering comprehensive data protection with simplified licensing and management. Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery helps organizations of all sizes meet a wide range of data management challenges across complex, distributed infrastructures.
With Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery, a bundle of 10 products, organizations can deploy the advanced management tools they need for each or their individual data protection and recovery requirements, without having to worry about individual product licenses.
The IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery provides storage and backup administrators with a simplified, alternative method for procuring and deploying throughout the infrastructure the data protection and recovery solutions that meet the needs for their particular environment. With this inclusive offering, you can deploy any of 10 different solution components, in any location and quantity, with a simplified license that measures only the amount of data being managed. License costs can be reduced through the use of built-in source and target data deduplication and archiving, and there is no charge for duplicate copies of the data.
This advanced, highly scalable suite helps increase the efficiency of your IT operations and helps cut costs related to storage management by providing a wide range of data protection, recovery management and monitoring capabilities using policy-based automation.
Leverage an advanced architecture for robust functionality
Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery helps organizations improve business continuity and reduce the risks of data loss, minimize complexity, better manage costs and address strict compliance requirements. Through progressive incremental backups, data compression and built-in data deduplication, the amount of backup data being stored is significantly reduced, thereby reducing the cost of the per-terabyte license.
Unify recovery management
One of the major costs of storage management is the need to administer many different data protection solutions, especially when users must react to restore requests involving multiple tools. Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery brings the management of backup and restore together into a single user interface, from across: system and application types - virtual servers, file servers, databases, email; locations - data centers, headquarters and remote/branch offices, disaster-recovery sites; service-level requirements - recovery point and recovery time objectives; types of failures - lost files/messages, data corruption, hardware failures, natural disasters.
Reduce your data storage footprint
Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery helps you address the relentless growth of data being created and retained through a number of leading-edge data-reduction capabilities, including progressive incremental backups that eliminate the need for redundant periodic full backups - the biggest source of data duplication in the backup environment. Built-in data deduplication, which can eliminate redundant files and subfiles: source-side data deduplication reduces the amount of data sent from client systems to the Tivoli Storage Manager server, and target-side data deduplication eliminates redundant data stored by this server; combined, these advanced features reduce bandwidth and storage requirements.
Increase efficiency with a hierarchy of storage
In most storage management environments, managed data is trapped on the media to which it was originally backed up. Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery manages data stored in a hierarchy of lower-cost storage, which helps conserve resources as automated policies migrate data to the appropriate media type based on data value, access and retention requirements.
Help enhance data security
Storage administrators must ensure that data is backed up and secure, regardless of location, and that purposely erased data is irrecoverable. To help meet compliance requirements while maintaining productivity of personnel, Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery compresses and encrypts data that is being moved into the hierarchy of storage, and stores and manages encryption keys for Tivoli Storage Manager clients and application protection modules.
Increase visibility into the data protection environment
Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery provides advanced features for operational monitoring and historical trends reporting. A customizable dashboard provides graphical views, while reports can be created in multiple formats such as HTML, Adobe Portable Document Formatting (PDF) and comma-separated values (CSV). Based on open-source Eclipse Business Intelligence Reporting Tools (BIRT), this feature enables administrators to define customized reports.
