Bare Machine Recovery for TSM


TBMR is a Bare Machine Recovery solution that has been exclusively designed for users of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) to maximise speed, flexibility and simplicity of use.


TBMR protects mission critical servers from the consequences of both physical damage and corruption of the operating system and users can utilise the power of TSM to recover their operating system to any point in time provided by TSM.

TBMR is the ONLY software product that recovers directly from TSM without having to do an additional backup!

Additional advantages:

  • Backups and restores performed by TSM, retaining the features and advantages of that software.
  • A server operating system can be rebuilt in less than ten minutes.
  • TBMR allows you to easily achieve your recovery SLA’s because multiple servers can be recovered simultaneously meaning your whole data centre can be recovered in just a few hours.
  • Automatic TSM server recoveries
  • Dissimilar hardware support
  • Recoveries to virtual or physical machines

TBMR is currently available for Windows, Linux, Solaris and AIX operating systems and is recommended by its channel partner IBM who re-sell the software product globally.

Recovery Simulator

Recovery Simulator add-on for TBMR

Testing should be the most vital stage of your disaster recovery plan as it ensures your business is prepared for any type of disaster occurring. With Recovery Simulator, you can now test your TBMR solution will work in a time of crisis.

RS provides reliable, automated recovery simulation for TSM users and uses a centralised management console to simulate a full recovery to a new virtual machine from a selected TSM backup. These simulations are fully scalable over multiple servers and can be scheduled in advance on site or from a remote management machine.

RS is also available as a standalone solution for users of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments (TSM for VE). The TSM for VE option provides a low cost mechanism for testing recovery to a VM that it creates within a protected TSM for VE managed environment.
