STORServer, a data backup solutions provider for the mid-market, has released STORServer Console version 2.0 (SSC) to help enterprises simplify management of the STORServer Backup Appliance and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager servers.

The upgraded enterprise backup software enables users to manage seamless, end-to-end backup appliance functionality in less than 30 minutes per day. The powerful combination of SSC and TSM ensures a highly disaster-tolerant environment for corporate data while simplifying administration of the data protection solution.

SSC can now be purchased as a standalone product for TSM users or can be used in conjunction with the STORServer Backup Appliance. The new version is also offered as an upgrade to existing users.

SSC’s user interface allows administrators to quickly and easily schedule administrative activities and reports, handle issues, and automate daily tasks.

SSC provides on-demand execution of all routine TSM administrative tasks for storage pool operations. It allows users to schedule and run TSM scripts and responds to custom commands with data-rich, actionable reports. The software enables administrators to easily identify administrative and client schedules via a new, color-coded system, and includes a complete array of volume management features. With SSC, users can easily manage data retention policies, maximize the value of their backup activities, and meet reporting requirements, all while cutting down management time.

SSC automates commonly used TSM administrative functions, including:

  • Implementing, monitoring, and repairing TSM with all daily and routine tasks in one interface
  • Operating all TSM servers from one screen
  • Controlling and securing interfaces for all backup administrators
  • Working with all types of TSM licenses (base or extended) and licensing options (cores or capacity)
