Without AutoVAULT, Tivoli Storage
Manager (TSM) tape vaulting functions are typically
completed in one of two ways:
MANUAL VAULTING can take 1.5 hours
of work per day per TSM server and lead to human
error. It is easy to get interrupted and forget to run a
step or not check every tape you want to send off-site.
SIMPLE SCRIPTS can waste 30
minutes of work a day and miss tapes. These
scripts are written by employees or VARs to automate the
TSM/DRM vaulting commands. They are relatively quick to
write, but they don't verify that your tapes
are successfully checked out of the library or provide
any flexibility or error-checking in vaulting. When a
disaster occurs, what might it cost your organization if
tapes are missing and you have to restore back several
days or weeks?
Benefits to using AutoVAULT
For a cost of under $4 a day, eliminate
human error and remove up to 1.5 hours a day of manual
work per TSM backup server per day with AutoVAULT. That
can be up to $35,000 in labor costs per TSM backup server
The cost of losing days or weeks of data when a disaster
occurs, because the right tapes have not been correctly taken
offsite, is unthinkable. The government has made a huge
investment in backing-up their data with IBM's Tivoli
Storage Manager backup product and the last piece of the
puzzle is ensuring the data is safely in a vault. This
should not be left to error-prone manual methods or
scripts without full error-checking. Automate these
functions with AutoVAULT!
1. AutoVAULT verifies each tape checkout individually and
captures all checkout failures. You will glance at a
report and know if you
have the correct data going offsite without having to
manually check each tape. This saves time and increases
2. AutoVAULT provides an
audit log of all tape movements onsite and offsite. The
log is in CSV format for use in Excel ... and makes auditors
3. AutoVAULT can
communicate directly with Iron Mountain
vaulting companies. AutoVAULT will automatically send your
information in a method that Iron Mountain and others can
easily process ... without daily intervention on your part!
excludes media brought onsite for an emergency so you
can continue normal vaulting operations while the media you
need is left in your library.
You can also
prioritize data for first restoration in the event of a
disaster, vault to
multiple vault locations, vault
primary pools and archive data, and more. These features
are not included in TSM or DRM. TSM Admins set up AutoVAULT
in under an hour and then it runs by itself giving you the
feedback you need in simple reports.
Let AutoVAULT automate your vaulting functions with tried-and-true
technology that will make your job easier and your data safer!
