If you’re looking for a client-server system that provides the illusion of infinite storage for your applications, look no further than ADSTAR Distributed Storage Manager (ADSM). It’s the perfect choice for any user installations with heterogeneous architectures, as it offers the same level of data management regardless of whether you’re on a LAN, midrange, or mainframe system.
With ADSM, you get a configurable system that takes responsibility for managing backup and archive media on the server while retaining the benefits of local workstation systems. What’s more, incremental backups are all you need to do to restore your data with maximum performance.
Main Features of ADSM
ADSM offers control management to handle the load as the system grows, providing users with a network-centric approach to managing and operating these systems.
Centralized Event Logging
With centralized event logging, ADSM offers a single point of access to server and client events. You can use the SQL interface and ADSM query commands to view events stored in the database, which can be sent to various recipients such as the TME 10 Enterprise Console, SNMP trap managers, and more. All of this provides administrators with a comprehensive view of system performance while enabling granular logging capabilities for different clients.
ADSM has an SNMP manager that provides a way for NetView, HP OpenView, and other monitoring applications to query the ADSM server using industry-standard SNMP MIB interfaces, allowing managers to collect vital information from the program.
Client Options Stored on the Server
The latest version of ADSM allows most client options to be stored on the server, giving admins more control over the setting and management of options while relieving clients of this responsibility. Moreover, client options can be grouped together for sharing among multiple clients to avoid replication.
ADSM Server-to-Server Communication
If you’re running multiple ADSM servers, the optional server-to-server communication feature lets you share data between servers, enabling the migration of information between storage pools across different servers. This feature also makes it easy to automate disaster recovery using the Disaster Recovery Manager feature.
ADSM is a powerful client-server system that provides users with a configurable data management solution for backup and archiving. With ADSM, you can easily shift the responsibility of managing backup and archive media to the server while retaining the benefits of local workstation systems. Additionally, ADSM offers several features such as central event logging, monitoring, client options stored on the server, and server-to-server communication that enable admins to manage and operate ADSM systems with ease.
