STORServer Announces SSC v3

The latest iteration of STORServer Console v3.0 enables IBM Tivoli Storage Manager users to operate their environment from a simple interface.

Data backup solutions provider STORServer has announced the availability of STORServer†Console v3.0 (SSC), which enables IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) users to operate their environment entirely from an easy-to-use interface. The software is designed to give nearly any administrator or operator the ability to manage and monitor their TSM environment with simplicity.

The upgrade is free to all existing STORServer Backup Appliance and SSC customers.

Benefits of SSC v3

With SSC v3.0, SMBs are able to manage end-to-end backup appliance functionality in a short amount of time. Monitoring and reporting features keep users apprised of TSM server activities, in real-time, with alerts available for a wide variety of TSM conditions. 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 v3.0 now supports client node replication, which provides the ability to incrementally replicate a client node’s data from one TSM server (source) to a remote TSM server (target) for disaster recovery. The software is compatible with TSM versions back to v5.5. To operate node replication, however, TSM v6.3 or newer is required on both source and target replication servers, and TSM v6.3.3 or newer is required for replication of OpenVMS client nodes.

In addition, numerous enhancements have been made to SSC v3.0 reports, including:

  • Replication activities reports providing information about client node replication processing.
  • TSM client version numbers in the client activities report.
  • Missed files report, which can now be configured to include specified policy domains only.
  • Storage pools reports with a section that identifies unprotected storage pools and provides more information as to why they are considered unprotected.

“SSC’s integrated help system never loses users in a confusing array of views or menus,” says STORServer president Bill Smoldt, “and it makes management a breeze with customizable, built-in system analysis.”

Additional updates to SSC v3.0 include:

  • Capabilities for creating, managing, and renaming client node groups.
  • The ability to delete client node enhancements and file spaces.
  • Enhancements to client schedule and log message viewer.
  • Added options for number of streams for database backups, inventory expiration, and file aggregate reconstruction for moving data.
  • Additional options in the SSC server configuration file.
  • Changes to SSC menus.
  • A new “password expired” column for client nodes and administrators.
  • Conversion of help system to XHTML

Users can operate any TSM environment almost exclusively through the SSC v3.0 user interface. They can still manage TSM at a command-line from within SSC and use any standard TSM interface.

SSC v3.0 can be purchased as a standalone product for TSM users. A hardware integrated version of SSC comes included with the STORServer Backup Appliance models.
