Tivoli Storage Manager-

Overview
Tivoli Software Pillars
 Storage
◦ Tivoli Storage Manager
◦ No dependencies on any of the other Tivoli products
◦ Integration points with the other Tivoli products
 Security
 Automation
◦ Performance, Availability,Configuration and Operations
TSM-Features..
 Complete Storage Management
◦ backup / restore
◦ archive / retrieve
◦ disaster recovery
◦ space management (hsm)
◦ database and application protection
◦ bare machine recovery
◦ data retention
 Scaleable from PC servers through UNIX and mid-range servers
to OS/390 mainframe servers
 Heterogeneous platform coverage for 13 different operating
environments

Records Retention
TSM-Progressive backup
•ONLY new or changed files backed up
•NO redundant backups
•Restores don’t require the same file to be restored multiple times
•NO wasteful weekly full backups and their dependent
incremental/differential
•Data tracked at file level
•Accurate restores

TSM Server

Disk pools
 Parallel backup of multiple clients
Optical pools

 Mixed retention on same tape


Tape pools
DB
 Direct restore from tape to client

 Fast, direct restore from disk to client

 Scheduled migrations

 Automatic migration to new tape technology

 Automatic migration to tape outside of backup window

NDMP Back up of NAS Devices
•Minimizes network traffic and transfer TSM Client
data outboard of the TSM client and
Request
server
Backups/restores direct to library TCP/IP
No LAN data traffic

NDMP Control
•Uses Network Data Management
(TCP/IP)
Protocol (NDMP) to perform high-
performance, scalable backups and of
restores NAS Device
Data transfer
(Data Mover)
(SCSI/FC)
•TSM also supports NFS/CIFS backup of

Library Sharing
Sharing Tape Devices
between multiple servers for
backup purposes
LAN
Two types
Library sharing only Log DB
Dynamic drive sharing Log DB

TSM Server

Advantages: TSM Server

Lower tape system costs through sharing SAN


Lower media costs

Disadvantages:
Administration of multiple backup servers
Careful scheduling to avoid drive contention
Server- Free backup
Also called ‘3rd party copy’ or SCSI Extended Copy (XCOPY)
LAN
Client (application host) discovers low-level TSM Client and
TSM Server
mapping for data, and passes to third party Storage Agent
data mover LogDB

All data movement is ‘out-board’ of the client


XCOPY services can exist in various SAN
devices
SAN

Advantages: Contr
ol
Requires no CP cycles on client for backup I/O P
Can work well for non-file objects (eg. volumes) ath

Disadvantages:
XCOPY specification still evolving
Not transparent to application/database
Difficult file-to-block mapping
Limited platform, device and database support
Unproven performance/reliability
Volume level backup / restores
Lan free backup
Lan-free backup has client storage agent
send data directly to tape or disk
LAN
TSM Client and TSM Server
Advantages: Storage Agent Disk
•Client data can be local or SAN-attached Log DB
Tape
•Transparent to application/database
•Takes backup traffic off the LAN
•Reduces CP cycles on backup server (no I/O)
•Faster speed (usually) SAN
•Only one backup server needs administration
Contro
lData
Disadvantages: Flow
P
ath
•Still requires CP cycles on client for backup
I/O
•Careful scheduling to avoid tape drive
contention (or exploit disk pooling with some
solutions)
TSM –Multi Session Restore

Increase restore rates through multi-sessions


Restores from multiple locations simultaneously

Session 1

Session 2

TSM Server
TSM Client
Fire wall support
Advanced backup, recovery & web client
support through firewalls
•API-based solution enables TSM server to
communicate directly with the target clients that
are to be protected
firewall
Requires the assignment of only two
firewall ports
Irrespective of the # of target servers and
clients that are to be protected
First port allows TSM server & clients TCP/IP
communication
Second port enables scheduling between TSM TSM Server
server & clients
Optional third port enable the administrative

Tivoli Storage Manager –vs- Veritas
NetBackup
Fastest Backup Cycle 40% Faster than Veritas NetBackup
Fastest Restores 87% Faster than Veritas NetBackup
Best Tape and Disk Utilization 4x fewer tapes and 44% less disk than Veritas
NetBackup
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Veritas NetBackup
Utilizes powerful relational database to Uses flat file catalog that can’t span
track meta data filesystems
Only needs to back up new and changed Must do weekly full backups
files – progressive backup
Policy changes retroactively applied to Policies changes are not retroactive –
previously backed up/archived data must REBACKUP data
Mobile backup function built in Additional product
Archived files are retained for long term Archive is just a backed up file followed
storage based on management policy by deletion of original file
DR planning built in and automated Additional manual service
Flexibility to move data from one type of No migration capability
media to another
Able to reclaim dead space on local tapes No tape reclamation capabilities
Restores just version of files needed Wastefully restores full + incrementals
TSM support from A to Z
TSM supports from Apple and AIX to
zSeries Linux and Z/OS

TSM supports from all applications

TSM supports over 500
