COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Mar 08, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- STORServer(R), a leading provider of data backup solutions for the mid-market, is marking the 33rd anniversary of OpenVMS with its Archive Backup Client (ABC) software. STORServer's ABC for OpenVMS allows resellers to include OpenVMS servers in their customer's heterogeneous IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) backup solution.

With ABC, users are able to backup, archive, restore and manage OpenVMS files stored on IBM TSM servers.

"If you have IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and OpenVMS, there is no reason you shouldn't be using the ABC software to backup your environment," said Steve Jensen, vice president of engineering at STORServer, Inc. "In fact, if you don't have IBM TSM, this is the right way to start. It's an intuitive interface to an OpenVMS administrator."

STORServer's Archive Backup Client provides comprehensive data protection for OpenVMS on Itanium, Alpha and VAX systems. System administrators can easily create backup schedules and restore individual files, directories and disks. ABC commands are designed to drop into an existing OpenVMS backup environment with minimal modification.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager policy management allows users to define how many older copies of files to keep and how long to keep them. These granular policies can be applied to individual files, directories, volumes and entire servers.

Archive Backup Client users can be confident in the security of their data as the software employs transaction semantics during all data transfers and performs thorough checks to ensure backup and archive copies mirror their online sources. In addition, ABC provides extensive logging capabilities that enable tracing of all operations and extends the OpenVMS security model to the files stored on the IBM TSM server.
