Unified Recovery Management
Reduce administrative costs, make faster and smarter decisions, and improve quality of service for your IT users and customers with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center.
As the diversity of your organisation’s operating system platforms, application types and storage grows, protecting your data from accidental or malicious loss becomes more complex.
Does your data recovery management plan take this complexity into account?
Your recovery management plan needs to support your unique infrastructure and the different applications your users and customers rely on. You may have different operating system platforms, application types and storage technologies. Your organisation’s important data may be distributed across the data centre, user desktops, remote or branch offices, home offices and mobile computers.
You also know that things can go wrong. Lost files, corrupt databases, viruses and hacker attacks, crashed disks, system failures, local or regional disasters – the list seems endless. Mirroring and replication are great technologies for recovering from a system-level failure or disaster. However, they are inappropriate for file-level problems such as accidental deletions and the corruption of databases, since the contents of the replica system will mimic the production system where the problem started.
Your organisation’s data recovery management policy must also balance costs against business needs. Some applications and data are more important than others and demand greater levels of protection – in terms of recovery point objectives (how much data you’re willing to lose) and recovery time objectives (how long you can be down).
Given this enormous complexity, it helps if you can manage the entire data protection and recovery infrastructure from a single point. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center provides this control – letting you manage your entire data protection and recovery management infrastructure from one administrative portal.
