s


Do you need a better backup solution, or a better recovery solution? If your business is like many that are
struggling with an ever
-
increasing amount of data and a decreasing tolerance to system downtime, the answer is
probably “both.” You need a better

backup solution that reduces the amount of data at risk of loss and eliminates
error
-
prone manual operations from the data protection process. And you need a better recovery solution that
gets your operations back up within minutes following almost any ty
pe or amount of data loss.


In today’s highly competitive and always
-
on business environment, companies of any size cannot easily tolerate
the loss of data or the loss of access to critical applications for an extended period of time. There are a number of

forces that can cause data loss, from an accidental or malicious deletion to virus attacks, disk and system failures,
and local and regional disasters. Each of these situations requires a specific approach to protecting and
recovering data and getting cri
tical applications back online.


IBM

Tivoli® Storage Manager FastBack is a smarter data protection and near
-
instant recovery software solution
for business
-
critical Windows and Linux servers, in data centers, remote offices and small
-

to midsized
enterpris
es. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack helps clients eliminate backup windows, reduce the amount of data
at risk between backups to almost zero, and reduce the time to recover from almost any data loss. The base
Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack product include
s nondisruptive block
-
level local backup and near instant
recovery plus data deduplication and highly efficient replication for off
-
site disaster recovery and business
resilience.


Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack’s automated disk
-
to
-
disk backup can replace

the use of manual tape
operations, especially in small or remote offices that may have a shortage of IT personnel. In larger offices and
data centers, it can be integrated with your existing tape backup applications, such as IBM

Tivoli Storage
Manager, to

provide an intermediary disk
-
based layer for significantly faster backup and recovery capabilities,
while eliminating the need to shut down applications in order to run backup jobs.


Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack provides a flexible, cost
-
effective solu
tion for a wide range of data protection
and recovery needs, including:




Mission
-
critical application protection and recovery.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack provides
nondisruptive data backup as often as you need it, with the ability to quickly restore

any data asset from any
Windows or Linux application

perfect for Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM

DB2®, mySAP
and File Servers.



Remote office backup consolidation.

Using Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack in remote offices and Tivoli
S
torage Manager in the data center provides an automated, easy
-
to
-
use backup and recovery solution that far
exceeds the capabilities of traditional remote office backup. Use the software’s integrated data deduplication and
selective replication capabilities

to send a copy of your data to a central data center or disaster recovery site.



Restore any type of data, anywhere.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack provides the capability to restore
individual files, folders and databases, disk volumes, and entire syst
ems.



Minimized data footprint.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack’s block
-
level, incremental
-
only data capture is
extremely storage and bandwidth efficient, and integrated target
-
side and WAN data deduplication further reduces
storage capacity and bandwidth

requirements.




Continuous data protection


Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack eliminates the need for traditional backup windows by continuously capturing
data changes at the block level, with extremely low overhead on the systems it protects; it’s an exc
ellent choice
for protecting Virtual Machines without the need for a separate proxy server. Its flexible policy engine empowers
administrators to make the best use of IT resources, while providing improved recovery service levels to meet
stringent data pro
tection and retention requirements on a per
-
application basis. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack
also provides a unique near
-
instant restore capability that gets your applications and users back up and running
within minutes following any data loss, while fu
ll data recovery is performed in the background.


Disaster recovery: Preparing for the unexpected


A critical requirement in every data protection program is the ability to recover from the loss of an office due to an
unplanned event such as a fire, flood
or other disaster. Fulfilling this requirement entails storing a usable copy of
the data from each office in an off
-
site location that is far enough from the original production facility so as not to
be impacted by the same event.


Adaptive disaster recove
ry is an integrated feature of Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack, offering backup
consolidation, central management, security, network efficiency and superior recovery options. More than simple
replication of data between sites, these capabilities provide a
flexible, policy
-
based approach to disaster recovery,
helping companies balance the complex needs of the business on a per
-
office basis.


Bandwidth
-
friendly protection


Using the sophisticated Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack policy engine, administrators c
an select the frequency
of backups on a per
-
application basis. You can set backups to run as often as needed to help ensure a tight
recovery point objective (RPO) for your most critical applications, without wasting network bandwidth doing the
same for you
r less
-
critical data. By matching the policy to the requirements, IT organizations can also save
storage capacity and administration costs. You can also select how long to keep each data set based on the
needs of each application.


With Tivoli Storage Mana
ger FastBack, data transfers over the WAN or Internet can be scheduled to make the
most effective use of your available bandwidth and to limit the impact on other applications. Data can be
deduplicated at the local FastBack Server, and also across other Fa
stBack Servers when transferring data to a
central Tivoli Storage Manager Server. The software securely transfers only those data blocks that have changed
since the last operation, supporting multiple encryption mechanisms, using a block
-
level incremental
model that
slashes the amount of data sent over the WAN or Internet compared to standard replication and file
-
based
backup consolidation solutions. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack also automatically bundles large numbers of
small files to dramatically redu
ce the latency overhead associated with TCP/IP file transfers.

With Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack, da
ta from multiple remote servers can be consolidated into a single
central data center, using either a central FastBack or Tivoli Storage Manager Server.


Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack includes built
-
in reporting to summarize how repositories, policies, a
nd
snapshots consume resources in your backup environment. There are a dozen types of reports that can be run ad
hoc or on a scheduled basis. For example, you can prepare an executive summary to identify the successful and
failed backups and the size of ba
ckups, along with a summary of the repository usage.


Integrating remote and central operations


The ability to recover data from remote offices is becoming increasingly crucial as the number of remote offices
grows and the amount of data in them increases
. Because Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack is an integrated
component of IBM

Tivoli Storage Manager, it makes it easier for organizations with remote offices to add remote
data to their core storage
-
related processes such as archive, retention and complianc
e. The software’s adaptive
disaster recovery capabilities and built
-
in data deduplication also make it easier to securely send copies of remote
data to a central site or to a disaster recovery site while helping to minimize the risk of data loss during tra
nsport.


Security and reliability


Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack offers industry
-
standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when a virtual
private network (VPN) or other secure channel is not available to your remote offices. The software uses indust
ry
-
standard Secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP/S) out
-
bound connections to perform transfers, eliminating the need
for custom firewall configurations at the remote office.


To help ensure data integrity for your disaster recovery operations, data sent to t
he central disaster recovery
repository is committed only after all of the data has been received and verified. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack
leverages self
-
healing capabilities to maintain a reliable and available recovery resource.

Executive summary


Our understanding of your goals


In today’s hi
ghly competitive, highly regulated, and always
-
on business environment, companies cannot tolerate
the loss of data or the loss of access to critical applications for an extended period of time. There are a number of
forces that can cause data loss, from an

accidental or malicious deletion to virus attacks, disk and system failures,
and local and regional disasters. Each of these situations requires a specific approach to protecting and
recovering data and getting critical applications back online. But meeti
ng these data protection and recovery
needs can be a difficult challenge, especially in branch or remote offices that may have a shortage of IT
personnel.


The most common data protection strategies companies rely on often require disruptive backup windows

that can
hinder productivity. These backups are often bandwidth intensive and may not provide the flexibility to establish
policy
-
based protection on a per
-
application or per
-
office basis. More importantly, they may not be adequately
supporting your recov
ery point objectives. Increasingly, companies need to reduce the amount of data at risk of
loss, and reduce the amount of downtime caused by both backup and recovery operations.


Our approach to meeting your goals


Our smarter data protection and recovery
management platform combines a number of leading
-
edge
technologies to provide an extensive data protection and recovery solution for mission
-
critical applications running
on Microsoft® Windows® and Linux® servers, in the data center and in remote or branch

offices of companies of
all sizes. This platform can help:




Increase employee productivity by eliminating traditional backup windows that require applications to be
brought down while data is transferred.



Increase data protection by capturing data changes

continuously, enabling companies to meet tighter
recovery point objectives.



Increase flexibility by offering policy
-
based data protection options that reflect your business requirements
for backup and recovery of each application and for each office.



Incr
ease reliability of backups by automating processes.



Reduce data storage footprint and its associated costs through highly
-
efficient block
-
level, incremental
backup and built
-
in multi
-
point data deduplication.


In the event of a data loss, this solution ca
n help companies get users up and running quickly, providing near
-
instant access to applications and data while full data recovery is performed in the background. Bandwidth
-
friendly data transfer technologies help minimize the impact of both backup and rec
overy on the network.

increasing amount of data and a decreasing tolerance to system downtime, the answer is
probably
“both.” You need a better backup solution that reduces the amount of data at risk of loss and eliminates
error
-
prone manual operations from the data protection process. And you need a better recovery solution that
gets your operations back up within minute
s following almost any type or amount of data loss.


In today’s highly competitive and always

based layer for significantly faster backup and recovery capabilities,
while eliminating the need to shut down applications in order to run backup jobs.


Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack provides a flex
ible, cost
-
effective solution for a wide range of data protection
and recovery needs, including:




Mission
-
critical application protection and recovery.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack provides
nondisruptive data backup as often as you need it, with the a
bility to quickly restore any data asset from any
Windows or Linux application

perfect for Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM

DB2®, mySAP
and File Servers.



Remote office backup consolidation.

Using Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack in re
mote offices and Tivoli
Storage Manager in the data center provides an automated, easy
-
to
-
use backup and recovery solution that far
exceeds the capabilities of traditional remote office backup. Use the software’s integrated data deduplication and
selective

replication capabilities to send a copy of your data to a central data center or disaster recovery site.



Restore any type of data, anywhere.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack provides the capability to restore
individual files, folders and databases, disk

volumes, and entire systems.



Minimized data footprint.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack’s block
-
level, incremental
-
only data capture is
extremely storage and bandwidth efficient, and integrated target
-
side and WAN data deduplication further reduces
stora
ge capacity and bandwidth requirements.




Continuous data protection


Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack eliminates the need for traditional backup windows by continuously capturing
data changes at the block level, with extremely low overhead on the systems

it protects; it’s an excellent choice
for protecting Virtual Machines without the need for a separate proxy server. Its flexible policy engine empowers
administrators to make the best use of IT resources, while providing improved recovery service levels t
o meet
stringent data protection and retention requirements on a per
-
application basis. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack
also provides a unique near
-
instant restore capability that gets your applications and users back up and running
within minutes followin
g any data loss, while full data recovery is performed in the background.


Disaster recovery: Preparing for the unexpected


A critical requirement in every data protection program is the ability to recover from the loss of an office due to an
unplanned eve
nt such as a fire, flood or other disaster. Fulfilling this requirement entails storing a usable copy of
the data from each office in an off
-
site location that is far enough from the original production facility so as not to
be impacted by the same event.


Adaptive disaster recovery is an integrated feature of Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack, offering backup
consolidation, central management, security, network efficiency and superior recovery options. More than simple
replication of data between sites, thes
e capabilities provide a flexible, policy
-
based approach to disaster recovery,
helping companies balance the complex needs of the business on a per
-
office basis.


Bandwidth
-
friendly protection


Using the sophisticated Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack policy

engine, administrators can select the frequency
of backups on a per
-
application basis. You can set backups to run as often as needed to help ensure a tight
recovery point objective (RPO) for your most critical applications, without wasting network bandwid
th doing the
same for your less
-
critical data. By matching the policy to the requirements, IT organizations can also save
storage capacity and administration costs. You can also select how long to keep each data set based on the
needs of each application.


With Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack, data transfers over the WAN or Internet can be scheduled to make the
most effective use of your available bandwidth and to limit the impact on other applications. Data can be
deduplicated at the local FastBack Server,

and also across other FastBack Servers when transferring data to a
central Tivoli Storage Manager Server. The software securely transfers only those data blocks that have changed
since the last operation, supporting multiple encryption mechanisms, using a

block
-
level incremental model that
slashes the amount of data sent over the WAN or Internet compared to standard replication and file
-
based
backup consolidation solutions. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack also automatically bundles large numbers of
small f
iles to dramatically reduce the latency overhead associated with TCP/IP file transfers.


Centralized control and reporting


With Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack, data from multiple remote servers can be consolidated into a single
central data center, using

either a central FastBack or Tivoli Storage Manager Server.


Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack includes built
-
in reporting to summarize how repositories, policies, and
snapshots consume resources in your backup environment. There are a dozen types of report
s that can be run ad
hoc or on a scheduled basis. For example, you can prepare an executive summary to identify the successful and
failed backups and the size of backups, along with a summary of the repository usage.


Integrating remote and central operati
ons


The ability to recover data from remote offices is becoming increasingly crucial as the number of remote offices
grows and the amount of data in them increases. Because Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack is an integrated
component of IBM

Tivoli Storage M
anager, it makes it easier for organizations with remote offices to add remote
data to their core storage
-
related processes such as archive, retention and compliance. The software’s adaptive
disaster recovery capabilities and built
-
in data deduplication al
so make it easier to securely send copies of remote
data to a central site or to a disaster recovery site while helping to minimize the risk of data loss during transport.


Security and reliability


Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack offers industry
-
standard
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when a virtual
private network (VPN) or other secure channel is not available to your remote offices. The software uses industry
-
standard Secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP/S) out
-
bound connections to perform transfers
, eliminating the need
for custom firewall configurations at the remote office.


To help ensure data integrity for your disaster recovery operations, data sent to the central disaster recovery
repository is committed only after all of the data has been rec
eived and verified. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack
leverages self
-
healing capabilities to maintain a reliable and available recovery resource.



IBM

Tivoli Storage Manager can be used stand
-
alone or as part of a unified recovery management platform based

on Tivoli Storage Manager
and the Tivoli Integrated Portal


Extended backup and recovery solutions


IBM

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack is tightly integrated with Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM), IBM’s enterprise
-
class data management platform. It can be lau
nched and managed from the TSM Admin Console, and TSM can
be configured to periodically backup FastBack servers to provide long
-
term data retention on any supported
media, including tape and virtual tape.

Do you need a better backup solution, or a better recovery solution? If your business is like many that are
struggling with an ever
-
increasing amount of data a
nd a decreasing tolerance to system downtime, the answer is
probably “both.” You need a better backup solution that reduces the amount of data at risk of loss and eliminates
error
-
prone manual operations from the data protection process. And you need a bet
ter recovery solution that
gets your operations back up within minutes following almost any type or amount of data loss.


In today’s highly competitive and always
-
on business environment, companies of any size cannot easily tolerate
the loss of data or the

loss of access to critical applications for an extended period of time. There are a number of
forces that can cause data loss, from an accidental or malicious deletion to virus attacks, disk and system failures,
and local and regional disasters. Each of t
hese situations requires a specific approach to protecting and
recovering data and getting critical applications back online.
