TBMR

Recover machines directly from IBM Spectrum Protect backups

TBMR allows you to perform a bare machine recovery of your operating system, applications and data direct from an IBM Spectrum Protect (TSM) backup. The recovery is fast and can be fully automated to protect your critical systems from the consequences of physical damage, human error or system failure. You can recover your protected systems to any point in time provided by TSM.

Simulated recoveries can be scheduled which fully automates the creation of the recovered machine and then runs test scripts to verify integrity and functionality.

Recovery schedules can be set up months in advance and planned so that the entire server infrastructure is tested within the desired time frame. The recovery machines are held in an isolated network and can be released after every simulation so storage is not permanently required.

Detailed reporting of each step of the recovery process highlights any problems encountered and provides an audit trail of successful results to provide assurance that DR procedures are effective.

TBMR is re-sold globally by IBM and its channel partners and is currently available for Windows, Linux, Solaris and AIX operating systems. TBMR is the recommended Spectrum Protect bare metal recovery solution.
