You would like to have a backup of your data (e.g. on a daily basis) from your computers at a remote location. You want to restore a computer in case of local data loss.
Our backup service on the basis of IBM “Tivoli Storage Manager” (TSM, originally ADSM) offers you the possibility of “incremental backups” by which your files will be compared on regular basis to previous backups and only new or modified data will be transferred to our backup server. Your data is stored in one of our magnetic tape libraries. Tools are provided to restore missing data. The GWDG takes care of maintaining the backuped data and is managing all necessary technologies.
Preconditions For Use
The service is available to all Max Planck Institutes and to all institutes of the University of Göttingen.
Institutes interested in using TSM should appoint a “backup representative” responsible in particular for the registration of clients and the monitoring of scheduled backups.
