Disaster Recovery Strategies with Tivoli Storage Management

An IBM Redbooks publication


Disasters, by their very nature, cannot be predicted, in either their intensity, timing, or effects. However, all enterprises can and should prepare for whatever might happen in order to protect themselves against loss of data or, worse, their entire business. It is too late to start preparing after a disaster occurs. This IBM Redbooks publication will help you protect against a disaster - taking you step by step through the planning stages, with templates for sample documents. It explores the role that IBM Tivoli Storage Manager plays in disaster protection and recovery, from both the client and server side. Plus, it describes basic sample procedures for bare metal recovery of some popular operating systems, such as Windows 2000, AIX, Solaris, and Linux.

This book is written for any computing professional who is concerned about protecting their data and enterprise from disaster. It assumes you have basic knowledge of storage technologies and products, in particular, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager.
