Adds seamless support for ACSLS manager®

– Servergraph™ today released Servergraph/TSM® 3.4.3, the latest version of its agentless software that manages and automates Tivoli Storage Manager backup environments. This newest version of Servergraph/TSM® provides seamless support for StorageTek® robotic tape libraries using StorageTek®'s ACSLS manager® software.

Servergraph/TSM® is agentless management and analysis software for backup environments that pays for itself in three to six months, according to Mark Roberts, president of Servergraph. "Successful enterprise backup requires the correct operation of networks, storage servers, disk arrays, tape libraries, and human intervention. Servergraph/TSM® helps our customers manage the entire system proactively to achieve 100 percent backup success," said Roberts. "Servergraph/TSM® spots trends in backup storage behavior well before problems occur, allowing users to take action and realign system resources."

Users of Tivoli Storage Manager connected to a StorageTek® tape library via ACSLS manager® software often have difficulty keeping track of the status of tapes in the tape library, said Don Becker, vice president of sales for Servergraph. "Tivoli Storage Manager software sees ACSLS manager® as an external media manager and therefore gets less information than with other library types. Servergraph/TSM® provides the information necessary to manage these complex environments effectively."
