The IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks extension allows SAN-connected Storage Manager servers and Storage Manager client computers to make maximum use of their direct network connection to storage. This software extension allows both servers and client computers to make the bulk of their backup/restore and archive/retrieve data transfers over the SAN instead of the LAN, either directly to tape or to the Storage Manager disk storage pool. This ability greatly reduces the impact of data protection on the LAN while also reducing CPU utilization on both client and server. For computers running Windows®, some SAN configurations will allow specific SAN-devices to perform data movements directly to and from some tape devices, further reducing client and server CPU utilizations. Should a tape library be connected directly to a SAN, this software extension also allows multiple IBM Tivoli Storage Manager servers to share the library over this high-bandwidth data connection.

Core Functions

  • LAN-Free backup/restore
  • SAN-connected tape library
  • Server-Free backup/restores in Windows-only environment

Some percentage of your data is inactive--it hasn't been accessed in weeks, if not months. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Space Management (formerly known as HSM) can automatically move inactive data to less-expensive offline storage or near-line storage, freeing online disk space for more important active data.
