The solution for smarter backup and recovery management
Tivoli Storage Manager White paper
Reduce your data storage footprint and tame the information explosion
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager gives you centralized, automated data protection to help reduce the risks associated with data loss. This highly scalable software helps you manage more data with less infrastructure and simplified administration. Now you can save money, improve service levels and comply with data retention regulations.
Tivoli Storage Manager automates data backup and restore functions and centralizes storage management operations.
- Backup and recovery management – A single administrator interface allows configuration, monitoring, reporting and backup/recovery execution across the entire complex IT environment.
- Hierarchical storage management – Enables policy-based management of file backup and archiving, with automatic migration of data between tiers of storage. This feature reduces storage media requirements and administrative costs associated with managing data.
- Scalability – Manage as many as two billion data objects in a single Tivoli Storage Manager server.
- Advanced data reduction – Combines progressive incremental backup, source and target data deduplication, compression and tape management. This advanced technology cuts data storage costs, decreases environmental requirements and simplifies administration.
