This IBM® Redbooks® Solution Guide provides an overview of how to use the IBM TS7620 ProtecTIER® Deduplication Appliance Express and the Network Attached Storage (NAS) support for Linux- and UNIX-based client backup environments. The File System Interface (FSI) with NFS support helps facilitate rapid data restoration, and the IBM HyperFactor® algorithm helps maximize disk usage by eliminating data duplicates in-line from the incoming backup data streams. The TS7620 Appliance Express comes pre bundled with internal disk storage included in a customer-installable, ready-to-run configuration. The ProtecTIER system can be integrated into an existing backup solution, and provides deduplication when saving files with backup solutions such as IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager, Symantec Netbackup, EMC Networker, and IBM i Backup and Recovery and Media Services (BRMS).
