Tivoli Delivers SANergy
- By Scott Bekker
Tivoli Systems Inc. announced the availability of Tivoli SANergy File Sharing software that helps users in networked environments speed transaction time by taking full advantage of the capabilities of SANs.
SANergy allows the sharing of application files and data between a variety of heterogeneous servers and workstations connected to a SAN. In addition, Tivoli SANergy File Sharing software uses industry-standard file systems, enabling multiple computers simultaneous access to shared files through the SAN. This allows users to leverage existing resources instead of learning new tools or migrating data to a new file system infrastructure.
SANergy, when used in conjunction with Tivoli Storage Manager, supports both LAN-free and serverless backup across a SAN. LAN-free and serverless backup allows the data traffic to be offloaded to the SAN, instead of moving the data through file servers over the LAN.
