    Storage Area Networks (SANs) have changed the way that data is moved, stored, and managed, allowing you to access your data faster and more efficiently. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager allows you to exploit your SAN infrastructure to potentially provide increased performance, greater flexibility in configurations, and more efficient use of your hardware resources.

    This IBM Redbooks publication describes the features of Tivoli Storage Manager, which can be deployed in a SAN. These features include LAN-free backup to tape and disk, tape library sharing, and server-free backup. It also discusses how to use Tivoli Storage Manager with other applications and hardware, such as STK libraries, mySAP, and IBM TotalStorage SAN File System.

    The emphasis of this information is on showing what can be done, why to do it, and how to do it.

    This book is written for people who are working for IBM, our clients, vendors, and consulting organizations and who want to understand how Tivoli Storage Manager fits into and enhances a SAN environment, as well as for those wanting detailed assistance in implementing Tivoli Storage Manager using SAN-attached storage.
