MBSR (Maggie Bare Server Restore) is the first “Bare Metal” product of its kind introduced for TSM. MBSR rebuilds and maintains a production TSM Server before a disaster occurs. You will have a fully functional production TSM Server up and ready to restore critical client data in a fraction of time it takes by today’s standards.
No, with MBSR you do not need the same hardware. You can use any system that meets the TSM minimal hardware requirements. If you have a server with no hard drives or even just a laptop, you can use MBSR.
MBSR uses USB SATA hard drives, with a preconfigured OS and working copy of your TSM Production Server. The drives have been engineered to fit into the same cases that LTO Tapes fit into. No need to spend limited budget funds on big bulky drives to store offsite.
The MBSR Server is a rack mountable system. MBSR stores all the information about your TSM Server to have it ready to accept and perform client backups (in production). The MBSR Drives are basically copies of the MBSR Server and will have your TSM Server running in DRM MODE in the time it takes to boot up the system to the drive.
Yes, the MBSR USB Drives are separate TSM Server builds based on the last TSM Database backup. You can plug it into any system not affected by an outage and still run client restore and backups.
No, MBSR does not use replication, or clustering logic. MBSR is designed to minimize the effort and maximize the result to have your TSM Server up and running quickly.
Yes, MBSR can be fully automated, and there is no need to spend valuable time and resources to rebuild your production TSM Server.
No, MBSR does not touch or change the client data stored in TSM at all. It simply uses the information of the TSM Server to have TSM running in no time at all.
MBSR is a fully self-contained automated software product. The initial setup is quick and if you prefer a SuccessTSM expert can do the installation for you.
Yes, SuccessTSM can customize MBSR to satisfy your expectations.
