Provides optional compression services during data backup, and includes exit points for encryption capabilities.
Integrates with IBM Tape Manager for z/VM when backups to physical or virtual tape are required, and complements IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager, which provides file-level backup of Linux data.
Restores files to mixed media (CMS files to SFS, SFS to CMS; CMS and SFS to virtual reader). Supports file-level backups of z/VM data, image-level of z/VM minidisks and z/VM and Linux DASD volumes.
Use exit points during both backup and restore processing to review and modify the data being backed up or restored. This function supports optional data compression and data encryption.
Using exit points provided, perform data encryption during backup and data decryption throughout restore operations. You can also use routines from vendors such as V/Soft Software's Encrypt/Backup.
