Storix Integrates With TSM

SAN DIEGO -- Storix Inc. announced today, at the LinuxWorld Expo, that TivoliR Storage Manager (TSM) users will soon have centralized full-system backup and disaster recovery available to them through SBAdmin v6.2. SBAdmin complements TSM by rounding out its capabilities with advanced features for full-system backup of Linux and AIX systems. The program writes directly to the TSM server, cutting out extraneous steps, saving valuable time and increasing reliability for system administrators.

Additionally, SBAdmin provides TSM users with disaster recovery capabilities, including Adaptable System Recovery (ASR), enabling system restore to the same or dissimilar hardware.

Storix Inc. has maintained a long-standing relationship with IBM and is an IBM PartnerWorldR Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partner. Its familiarity with IBM and their storage products, led Storix to recognize an opportunity within the TSM user environment.

"TSM is a remarkable product but users still had a need for centralized full-system backup and disaster recovery that was not being met by TSM or other 3rd party programs," said Anthony Johnson Storix Inc. president.
"Integrating SBAdmin with TSM will provide unprecedented system backup coverage and disaster recovery abilities. Even on a daily basis, TSM administrators will benefit from centralized system backup administration, consolidated backup locations and simplified management directly from the
TSM server."
