IBM Spectrum Protect and Veeam Customer Form, June 28, 2017, Skyloft Frankfurt Airport
"THE DATE", 28 June 2017
After the successful TSM customer forums for the last three years, a conference on IBM Spectrum Protect (former TSM, Tivoli Storage Manager) and Veeam Software with dsmISI, GSCC and Dell / EMC Isilon took place on June 28, 2017 as storage pool for IBM Spectrum Protect and Veeam Repository Server in Frankfurt. Another focus was on IBM Spectrum Protect Server / Client and Docker.

dsmISI for VEEAM certification
dsmISI for Veeam – accelerated filing of Veeam repository in EMC Isilon (OneFS Scale-out storage). In principle, dsmISI for Veeam implements dynamic multi pathing, which automatically spreads reads and writes symmetrically across all available network paths and Isilon nodes, guaranteeing maximum throughput for any attached Veeam Repository server.
Another Veeam specific challenge is the size of a target file, which cannot be configured but corresponds directly to the entire size of a backup job or virtual machine. Since virtual machines’ capacities can easily outgrow the file-size limitations of an Isilon Scale-Out NAS cluster (4 TB), natively using an Isilon can hardly be considered a useful solution for Veeam backup. dsmISI for Veeam addresses these challenges by fully virtualizing NAS storage into a standard block-type file system which not only allows practically unlimited file sizes, but uses the entire bandwidth of an Isilon cluster – even for a single data stream..
Whitepaper: Spectrum Protect and Veeam Availability Suite usage guide abstract, December 2016
Veeam and Spectrum Protect customers often need to store petabytes of backup data. For this, they need an efficient and powerful system that load balances the data stream across multi-target storage controllers, without the negative effects of deduplication storage systems. An example of a combined target disk storage system for Spectrum Protect and Veeam is General Storage’s dsmISI for Spectrum Protect and dsmISI for Veeam. An EMC Isilon Storage Systems is used with the dsmISI load balancer software to get the maximum out of the EMC file cluster nodes. With Veeam, a single target write stream is spread across the nodes for high throughput of more than 1 GBs per stream. General Storage MAGS can help bring Veeam Backup files to TSM tape and organize them.

... Speziell beim Backup lag die Herausforderung darin eine Lösung zu finden, die auch mit großen Filesystemen zu Recht kommt. Nach einer monatelangen Anforderungsanalyse und einem Ausschreibungsverfahren fiel die Wahl auf eine Kombination des IBM Spectrum Protect (ehemals Tivoli Storage Manager, TSM) und dem vom Bensheimer Systemintegrator Concat und General Storage entwickelten Modul dsmISI MAGS sowie einem EMC Isilon-Cluster. Mehr über das Auswahlverfahren, die Lösung im Detail und den Inbetriebnahmeprozess erklärt Storage-Manager Ullrich in der virtuellen Redaktionskonferenz. ...

SSW-2258: An Alternative to NDMP for Network-Attached Storage Backup
Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) has not changed much since it was first introduced in 1995. Its reliance on occasional full backups has proven to be problematic in terms of the amount of data that must be transferred and stored. Come learn about an alternative method of backing up NAS devices to IBM Spectrum Product that doesn't rely on NDMP. dsmISI MAGS is an automated, proxy-based approach to rapidly protecting and restoring data. It can reduce backup jobs that took days down to hours. dsmISI MAGS can take advantage of the inline deduplication available in modern Spectrum Protect and doesn't rely on hardware-based virtual tape libraries. Come learn some of the history of NDMP and how you can move your organization away from it.
