When you are using IBM equipment there is a big chance that you will use IBM related software to manage the environment. In a large environment you can use IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) for Virtual Environments to make back-ups of your virtual machines. IBM says that:
Tivoli® Storage Manager software provides a wide range of storage management capabilities from a single point of control, helping companies ride the information tidal wave.
Early this year they’ve added a new product to the Tivoli Storage Manager, IBM storage management software called IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environments (TSMVE). This is their product for making back-ups and to recover virtual machines.
You would think that a big company like IBM jumped on the train of virtualisation when it was leaving the train station but in my opinion that’s not what they have done!
