Time For Tapeless? LaserVault Tempts The SMB
#IBM midrange shops with dedicated system operators that manage backup media and drives are few and far between these days. The common staffing arrangement has programmers or maybe network admins juggling backup duties along with their other responsibilities. Of course, lean staffing invites human error into IT operations. Automating backup procedures can provide welcome relief. Data at risk is a problem that #ElectronicStorageCorporation is addressing with a new appliance it calls Backup #SAVSmart for i. Electronic Storage Corporation is the maker of #LaserVault backup and recovery solutions. SAVSmart uses the newest version of the LaserVault Backup software, which is pre-installed on the appliance and connects to the #IBM i platform using an Ethernet connection. Users can access the SAVSmart control panel with a Windows tablet (provided with the appliance) or with their existing laptops.
