IBM retools for backup and recovery services

Jo Maitland, Senior Executive Editor

IBM Global Services (IBM GS) has announced a series of managed data recovery services that use disk-based backup technology from Avamar Technologies Inc., and online remote backup from LiveVault Corp., for users who are ready to hand over this process to a third party.

Dubbed Electronic Data Management Services, the series includes three offerings designed to replace current tape backup systems and processes. They are as follows:

  • Real-time replication. Replication and storage of data directly to an IBM facility in Gaithersburg, Md., to help provide "near zero data loss", an IBM spokesperson said. This service uses Vision Solutions Inc.'s replication software, called Orion, which supports IBM iSeries, Windows 2000, Linux RedHat and SuSE operations systems, as well as data integration to and from various disparate databases.

  • Requires Free Membership to View
