Tributary Systems Storage Director
Storage Director is a software defined, policy-based and tiered enterprise backup virtualization solution that enables data from any host, OS or backup application, to be backed up to any storage device, medium or technology, including IBM’s Cloud Object Storage (Cleversafe) platform, or any S3 compatible cloud. Storage Director is a fully virtualized target for any backup application such as Spectrum Protect, NetBackup, Commvault, Veeam, etc. and enables policy-based data pools to be created and backed up to multiple targets and replicated for remote storage and DR. Storage Director is unique in being able to present a single backup target or solution for backing up all open environments, such as Linux, Windows, VMWare, UNIX, etc. as well as all proprietary host platforms, such as IBM Mainframe (z/OS), iSeries, HPE NonStop, HP Open VMS etc. on a single node.
Storage Director has an optimized backend S3 interface to allow customers to stream their data post backup process to IBM’s Cloud Object Storage (Cleversafe) enterprise backup and archive platform or any S3 public cloud target. Storage Director can backup and restore data to any S3 cloud target using large block sizes as well as a function called DRestore™ which restores large amounts of data in disaster recovery situations.
Storage Director is a patented, software defined, high performance storage solution that virtualizes and consolidates data backup through a scalable, policy-based and tiered architecture.
