Archiving / Server-Backup / TSM

The archiving service is meant for the long-term storage of files, so that they can be kept safe for years and be restored if necessary. The long-term storage copies are transferred to tape cartridges which are kept in tape libraries. Additionally TSM provides backup for server data.

To provide this service, we use the Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM), which is a backup and archive sofware. TSM offers user client software for most common operating systems. The TSM archiving service is available for all work-related devices (PCs, laptops, servers) which are registered in one of the URZ's central directories.

To be able to use the service, you will need to register and install the client software. The archiving process can be triggered manually or can be automated via a script. The client is also able to restore files and directories.
