AIX is a Unix implementation, built to deliver the highest performance and reliability, and developed by IBM for several of their products. For that reason alone, it makes sense to pair AIX with an equally reliable storage system like Tributary Systems Storage Director. As an IBM Partner, Tributary Systems has the inside track to meet the specific needs of AIX users using any AIX version, such as AIX 7 or AIX Enterprise. As with AIX, Storage Director delivers scalability, reliability, and manageability.
Tributary's Storage Director gives you a single, central point from which you can control all of your tape libraries and drives. Tributary's Storage Director acts as a central point from which those same resources can be allocated to multiple servers. This gives administrators one place to focus their time and effort. By simplifying things in this way, Tributary's Storage Director frees administrators to focus on other operational tasks delivering greater productivity to the organization. In some cases, the degree to which Tributary's Storage Director is able to simplify the storage management process may mean that a company needs fewer people spending their precious time on these tasks altogether.
Tributary's Storage Director streamlines, optimizes and simplifies backups. It does this by offering a high-speed, centralized, virtual and physical device consolidation point that is nearly infinitely scalable. This design ensures that as your backup requirements grow you can add new storage to your environment in the most cost efficient manner ensuring that you always have more than you need. This keeps your costs tightly coupled with your needs and ensure that you never overspend.
Tributary's Storage Director delivers ROI from the moment it is installed by streamlining, optimizing and simplifying your backups in a fashion that delivers immediate time and cost savings.
