ExaGrid has created a new resource for IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager (TSM) users, “Best Practices Guide: IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager with ExaGrid® Disk Backup with Deduplication.” This quick guide provides high-level information about best practices and recommended settings for integrating an ExaGrid appliance into a TSM environment.
Upcoming Guides in this series, including Oracle RMAN, Symantec Backup Exec and CommVault Simpana, are planned or under way.
Using an ExaGrid appliance and TSM together allows you to take advantage of several additional benefits of the combined ExaGrid-TSM solution, such as reclamation enhancements, which will be described in more detail in upcoming posts.
This Guide would be useful to any TSM administrator or manager responsiible for backing up in a TSM environment. You can download a copy of the Best Practices Guide from the ExaGrid TSM Resource page on our web site.
