Henley-in-Arden – October 13, 2015 – Concat AG, a Meridian Group International company, is the first EMC Isilon partner worldwide to develop a TSM concept (Tivoli Storage Manager, now Spectrum Protect) that uses dsmISI and Isilon OneFS as a TSM storage pool. The solution developed together with General Storage makes storage-pool handling for TSM significantly easier, reduces operational costs, and broadens the usability spectrum. Meridian IT UK – another Meridian Group company – is now introducing this revolutionary solution to the market in Great Britain.
Implementing dsmISI and EMC Isilon helps companies with TSM environments to:
- Achieve unheard of backup and recovery performance
- Significantly broaden the usability spectrum
- Dramatically reduce complexity and operational costs
- Benefit from one common file system shared by almost any number of TSM servers
- Expand capacity and throughput by pushing a button
- Scale from 3 to 144 storage nodes (256 terabytes up to 15 petabytes)
- Respond promptly to unexpected challenges without having to rethink the entire TSM design
“The solution combining dsmISI with EMC Isilon as a storage pool eradicates TSMs’ Achilles heel, which is the lack of restore performance”, says Stephen Young, Managing Director of Meridian IT UK. “More importantly, TSM as a service enables customers to maintain guaranteed service level agreements.”
TSM as a service is now available in Great Britain from Meridian IT UK. Meridian IT UK will provide the EMC Isilon hardware and software OneFS as well as dsmISI and will work closely with its sister company Concat to integrate the complete solution into the customers’ TSM environment. Companies that want to find out more about how their organisation can reduce costs and improve backup and recovery performance with the new TSM concept can attend an exclusive event on Thursday 12th November, 2015. More details about the event can be found on the Meridian IT UK website http://www.meridianit.co.uk/emc.html
