From the 27th November 2012, Cristie’s CBMR and TBMR software products will now be available to order through Passport Advantage®.  This will significantly simplify the quoting and ordering process for both IBM and all IBM channel partners. CBMR and TBMR deliver best-in-class BMR software that provides fast, automated disaster recover – whether to similar or dissimilar hardware.  TBMR fully integrates with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and can recover directly from TSM without having to perform separate protects.  This provides considerable savings in storage space and network bandwidth.  CBMR and TBMR will typically restore server operating systems in less than ten minutes and are able to perform multiple server recoveries simultaneously.

Ian Cameron, CEO at Cristie Software said “Cristie has worked closely with IBM for the last 5 years and this is an exciting step that should greatly strengthen our relationship.  The previous procurement system made it difficult for IBM and partner sales execs to quote and order our software and this move will take all that pain away.  We therefore expect to see a big increase in TSM users’ adoption of TBMR to provide their disaster recover solution.”
