|SafeDR is a completely automated
backup, restore, and disaster recovery solution for your z/VM & Linux
environment. "Disaster Recovery in a Can!" SafeDR can recover your
z/VM operating system in standalone or "Bare Metal" mode. It can
be used as your only backup and recovery solution, or it may be
seemlessly integrated with existing Linux backup solutions. SafeDR
provides the standalone recovery capability for the z/VM operating
system that is missing in other Linux backup and recovery solutions.
When you use SafeDR, your entire
disaster recovery procedure consists of: Mounting the tape containing the
SafeDr standalone backup, entering six previously scripted commands, and
mounting the tapes requested by SafeDR. SafeDR eliminates the
requirements for complicated disaster recovery plans and procedures.
SafeDR even figures out what to back up. No z/VM or Linux expertise is
required. Anyone can do it!
SafeDR uses very reliable,
established technology to physically back up your data. The methods
used are built into the z/VM operating system and have been tested by many
real life disaster recovery situations. Automation provided by SafeDR
eliminates the possibilty of human error. SafeDR quiesces your Linux
servers to ensure that backed up data is free of corruption errors.
Data is backed up by copying
physical images of your DASD to tape. This high speed method allows
your backups to complete as quickly as possible. SafeDR backs up your
data to multiple tapes concurrently, allowing you to use all of your
hardware resources as efficiently as possible. Only DASD areas that
are used for data are backed up. No time or system resources are
wasted by backing up unused DASD areas.
and Cost effective!
SafeDR eliminates the need to create
and maintain complicated disaster recovery plans and procedures. This
drastically reduces the time that your systems and operations staff must
spend working on disaster recovery tasks. This savings in expensive
staffing requirements, in combination with the very low cost of SafeDR, more
than pays for SafeDR itself. The question isn't, "Can I afford to run
SafeDR?", it's "Can I afford NOT to run SafeDR?" Other backup
solutions are either much more expensive or only provide part of the
solution required. SafeDR is the only solution that is designed
specifically for the z/VM & Linux environment.
