Storix launches System Backup Administrator version 7.2

Enables customers to alter the configuration as needed to fit onto any hardware or virtual configuration

By CBR Staff Writer

Storix, a provider of Unix-based backup and disaster recovery offerings for AIX, Solaris and Linux systems, has introduced System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin) version 7.2, with support for AIX 7 and Tivoli Storage Manager 6.2.

The company said the new SBAdmin version 7.2 TSM edition compliments an existing TSM environment with the added benefit of Adaptable System Recovery (ASR), now available for AIX 7.

The new SBAdmin version 7.2 includes new system recovery features; alternate backup networks; AIX 7 & TSM v6.2 support; new backup device management; enhanced management interface; and support for New ZFS features.

Storix said the SBAdmin provides Adaptable System Recovery (ASR), the ability to rebuild AIX, Solaris, or Linux systems from bare-metal, giving customers the flexibility to alter the configuration as needed to fit onto any hardware or virtual configuration.

In addition, if SBAdmin detects differences between the backup and newly detected hardware, it will make recommendations, such as selection of new disks or automated shrinking of filesystems.

This feature of ASR reduces downtime during disasters or planned outages by providing system recovery onto newer or virtual systems; provisioning/cloning of multiple systems; and system storage alteration for improved system availability, recoverability and performance.

Storix president and founder Anthony Johnson said with SBAdmin 7.2 TSM edition, administrators can configure and manage system backups from a central management console and backups are written directly to a TSM server, and administrators can boot and recover entire systems directly from their TSM backup.

The company said that the SBAdmin is available for Solaris SPARC and x86/x64, all Intel-based (x86/Pentium), IBM pSeries (32/64-bit) and HP Itanium 2 systems.
