Richard Whybrow from Hertz Australia discusses how IBM and Tivoli solutions have helped manage massive, enterprise-wide data growth.Hertz Australia was experiencing phenomenal growth in its data.We were on a seek-and-find mission to be able to find a suitable environment for our backup strategy. We were looking for an enterprise-capable solution. And we looked at _____ and NetBackup and found it too expensive whereas Tivoli, TSM came to the environment with, came to the solution that we required. It’s important to be able to archive to meet the policies and requirements of the business, and we have archive built into TSM so we’re using archiving as well as normal backup as well as image backup. And so we’re able to use any of those solutions at any time. And we archive regularly for our Lotus Notes. We archive regularly for servers and we also restore any time we like. So we’re able to meet key requirements and policies, regulatory requirements and also business requirements using TSM.Because we’re very conscious to meet regulatory requirements, we have to have something which is very secure. So we use the TSM encryption which allows us to maintain that security which can’t be broken. And compression and also encryption of tapes not only gives us time saving, but also peace of mind to know that it’s totally secure. Using DRM we’re able to run a single command which will restore tapes onto the on-site storage and also put tapes which are necessary to go to the off-site storage. So DRM is our total disaster recovery manager and allows us to manage the environment with a single command. And having DRM in the environment is giving us a feel-good solution. Migrating to 6.3 is going to give us great benefit of de-duplication and that’s not only going to save space, but it’s also going to save the environment because we’re saving on tapes, we’re saving on administration time, we’re saving on managing the files because we’re reducing the amount of space that’s required.TSM has many components that we’ve installed and we received the domino portion, also the server BA client and also the file system and the SQL client. And so we’re out to cover our whole environment all in one neat package.
