Backup and Recovery

Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM, Spectrum Protect)

While Tivoli Storage Manager is the premier tier-one storage management solution available, it does require expert implementation and administration.

TSM administrators change over time and the TSM configuration that was originally installed may now look completely different.

Unforeseen growth and new project implementations may have significantly altered the original design criteria. Subsequent releases of the software or patches may be available but not applied. As a consequence, the performance of the system may start to suffer.

We have in depth experience in the Tivoli Storage Manager backup product which will accelerate your implementation and provide cost effective support. We have highly skilled consultants with broad architectural knowledge and deep technical skills which will enable rapid deployment, integration, configuration and optimisation of your Tivoli backup solution. We support TSM environments for a number of blue chip clients across a variety of server and client platforms, including:

  • AIX
  • Windows 2008, 2008R2, 2012
  • Linux
  • Sun

Whatever your TSM requirements, we are sure we can help.

Symantech and Attix 5

Although Tivoli is the most popular enterprise backup solution with our clients, we also have experience  in installing, configuring and managing Attix 5 and Symantech BackupExec backup products, both across full enterprise implementations down to single server installations.

DR Planning and testing

The key to disaster recovery is to be genuinely capable of recovering your systems and data in a way that enables you to continue delivering services.

We can assist with analysing risk, creating a disaster recovery plan, staff training, procedure auditing and disaster recovery testing.

We have the broad range of technical skills to test the execution of your DR plan, or the creation of one from scratch. We have the necessary expertise in the leading backup and recovery software products and can implement an end to end configuration.

Backup Validation

As with disaster recovery, your backups are only as good as the data you can recover.

We can provide a full service, or assistance with planning, to ensure that your backups are regularly validated to give you the peace of mind in knowing that your data is recoverable if necessary.
