PRESS INFORMATION FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Code Relief Launches AutoVAULT™
A Tape Vaulting and Disaster Recovery add-on for Tivoli Storage Manager™ with support for Backup Sets
September 1, 2000 Code Relief LLC, a premier provider of storage
management software applications, today launched its tape vaulting and
disaster recovery solution for Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM, formerly
IBM’s ADSM). Fulfilling a critical need not addressed in the
marketplace, AutoVAULT provides an innovative, easy-to-implement solution
to equip companies to quickly recover from a data disaster and avoid
costly technician time for the daily management of media vaulting. AutoVAULT
also provides support for backup-set vaulting, an important feature that
is not included in any of the TSM product line.
be fully covered in the event of a disaster, companies need both to ensure
that their media is where it should be, and to have the ability to recover
their TSM server quickly. Automation
of these important functions is not included in the base TSM application.
Vice President of Product Development, Stephen C. Hnath states,
“Without AutoVAULT, a simple media or server failure can easily turn
into a permanent data loss. By
automating daily tape vaulting and disaster planning, AutoVAULT greatly
reduces the possibility of human error, protecting corporate data at a
much higher level.”
AutoVAULT, companies need to use time consuming, error-prone, manual
methods to identify media to vault off-site and to return on-site at the
proper time. In the event of
a disaster or something as simple as a TSM server crashing, companies not
using AutoVAULT would have to manually restore their TSM servers.
They would need to know which media to load, which commands to run,
and in precisely what order. This manual server recovery can cause extensive down time and
data loss. In contrast, AutoVAULT,
used with TSM or ADSM, automates recovery making companies ready to
recover quickly from any data loss.
data managers think of disaster planning as an insurance policy that they
hope to never need,” says Jay Raman, Chief Information Officer of The
Reading Hospital and Medical Center, Reading, PA USA.
“AutoVAULT does much more than just protect us in case of
disaster; it works for us every day.
We are saving hours of expensive technician time every week using
AutoVAULT’s automated media rotation system instead of time intensive
manual methods. AutoVAULT truly provides a
complete and safe solution for my tape vaulting and disaster recovery
Backup Set Media Vaulting - unique to AutoVAULT
is now able to create an independent copy of a client's active data from
existing server storage pools onto removable media.
This is called a backup set. One
use of a backup set is to create a point-in-time client backup for long
term retention without moving data over the network. This Instant Archive
can replace annual data archives that are often run over the network to
satisfy a data retention requirement.
The Tivoli product line does not include a mechanism to vault the
backup set media, a feature unique to AutoVAULT.
