Deploying a storage management solution for a small or medium-size business begins with a thorough analysis of the existing business and IT environment. The next step after fully understanding the organization is planning and sizing. This is the key stage, because deployment success depends on how well you plan and size.
This IBM Redbooks publication takes a step-by-step approach to deploying a storage management solution based on IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. The first two chapters introduce overall planning and sizing issues. Then we focus on the detailed installation and configuration of Tivoli Storage Manager, and offer some deployment scenarios and troubleshooting of storage management implementation.
Readers should be familiar with the following topics:
- Storage management concepts
- Network topologies
- Distributed systems architectures and configuration
This book does not cover whole IBM Tivoli Storage Manager components or other discussions for the planning and sizing experience.
