STORServer Announces Availability of STORServer Console v3.0
By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor
STORServer, a provider of proven data backup solutions for the mid-market, has introduced STORServer Console v3.0 (SSC), which allows IBM (News - Alert) Tivoli Storage Manager users to operate their environment entirely from an easy-to-use interface, while maintaining the latest robust, feature-rich complexity of TSM.
Offocials with STORServer said that the software gives 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.
According to company officials, SSC v3.0 provides users with the ability to manage seamless, end-to-end backup appliance functionality in less than 30 minutes per day. Monitoring and reporting features keep users apprised of TSM server activities, in real-time with alerts available for a wide variety of TSM conditions.
Company officials said that the powerful combination of SSC and TSM ensures a highly disaster-tolerant environment for corporate data, while simplifying administration of the data protection solution.
“STORServer Console is a great tool,” said Robert Standridge, enterprise backup administrator for Noble Energy, Inc., in a statement.
Standridge said that SSC makes the automation and management of the TSM daily processing activities, like storage pool backups, TSM database backup and expiration very easy.
“Monitoring client activities with SSC helps me to maintain consistent and successful backups. SSC is the number one tool in maintaining a high-performing STORServer/TSM environment.”
“SSC’s one-of-a-kind integrated help system never loses users in a confusing array of views or menus, and makes management a breeze with customizable, built-in system analysis,” said Bill Smoldt, president of STORServer.
Smoldt said that the beauty of the software is that anyone from an intern to an experienced IT veteran can use it; TSM expertise is not necessary.
Earlier in September, STORServer announced significant improvements to its online reseller portal that will provide enhanced sales information, product specs and content to assist partners in closing more sales.
The portal will function as a resource for resellers to better understand STORServer offerings and provide product information to their prospects.
