  • MySQL
  • Sybase ASE
  • Sybase IQ
  • PostgreSQL
  • Ingres
  • Interbase/Firebird
  • Progress OpenEdge 4GL
  • And more to come as the market evolves!

Improve Backup Efficiency and Simplify Data Protection with Rocket Servergraph

Tommy Hueber, Rocket Software

Backup environments everywhere are getting more complicated, and businesses are demanding more from their backups than ever before. Service level expectations are also increasing and the amount of databeing created is growing—yet IT budgets are shrinking. IT departments need a strategy to handle these challenges. Just as important, they need tools to help expand insight into the entire environment, including automating backup and reporting processes.

Smart Control, Evidence and Reporting for IBM Spectrum Protect

Stefan Schröder, Schmitz RZ Consult

Control, verification and proof of all daily backups and documentation of the backup environment are essential. Nevertheless, these tasks are often neglected. The reasons are firstly the high expenses and secondly, the type of work (routine tasks). BACKUP EAGLE® reduces the daily effort to check all failed backups. BACKUP EAGLE® ensures easy control, secure verification and complete evidence of backup operation. The configuration of ISP servers and ISP clients including all changes are automatically documented - no effort needed.
Main ideas, guidelines, concepts and components of BACKUP EAGLE® will be explained within the presentation.

Michael Todt, SVA

The presentation will provide an overview of the Tape Audit Tool. It will explore functions and features of tape media verification and how the tool can help to ensure the usability of tape media.

Spectrum Protect Cost Effective Appliance for Management and Performance at Scale

Mike and John, Tectrade

Our solution provides a disk based data protection strategy for clients with large volumes of data (often comprising millions of small files) wishing to mitigate both risk & management overhead, and addresses the challenges of protecting large quantities of data specifically in the context of both time and infrastructure constraints.
Built from known, proven and repeatable technology packaging, IBM Spectrum Protect, and with unique dsmISI MAGS software, our solution significantly de-risks and accelerates time to value, and delivers unsurpassed end-to-end data availability, reliability and integrity.
