TSMworks, Inc., today released version 1.5 of its flagship product, ART: Automated Restore Testing for Tivoli Storage Manager. ART 1.5 targets probable waste storage, so administrators can defer hardware upgrades.
“All backup servers tend to accumulate junk”, says Lindsay Morris, CEO of TSMworks. Often, storage administrators are either unaware of this waste, or have no time to clean out defunct and duplicate backups. But the savings can be massive, even 50% of the total backup storage. TSMworks has documented six causes specific to Tivoli Storage Manager in a video: http://tsmworks.com/videos/junk_happens.
ART 1.5 shows the largest chunks of probable waste, along with the contact information needed to get deletion approval from the responsible parties.
“Restore testing is still job #1”, says Mr. Morris. “But it’s a great side benefit that ART finds wasted dollars in your storage system, too.”
ART 1.5 starts at $3,500 for 100 clients. More info is available at http://www.tsmworks.com.
