Protect your Linux on System z applications and systems with FDR/UPSTREAM
FDR/UPSTREAM can protect Linux on System z and System z hardware supporting Linux clients on either a LPAR or z/VM virtual machine.
FDR/UPSTREAM for Linux on System z provides a complete Disaster Recovery solution for Linux on System z with "Rescuer".
UPSTREAM Data Reduction tools to help meet your backup window
The "Director" Management Interface
UPSTREAM provides a variety of user interfaces including TSO ISPF, character mode, command line, the "End User Restore" GUI and the "Director". The Director is a platform independent JAVA Application that provides a user-friendly graphical management and administrative interface that can be run from a workstation anywhere in your network, virtually anywhere in the enterprise. The Director also can run from a web browser making it truly and easily enabled for cross platform operations. The Director executes automatically and is operational in minutes.
Using the UPSTREAM Director you can initiate backups and restores, check the status of running operations, retrieve log files, perform profile configuration, run preand post-processing jobs and more. The comprehensive reporting features help keep your storage administrator staff efficient, aware and advised.
The Director has the ability to communicate, control, and monitor the facilities of the Linux on System z applications or databases it is backing up and also the UPSTREAM mainframe backup server providing centralized single view and control.
The Director interface provides administrators with the tools to easily manage multiple Linux on System z servers or instances. The Director provides robust industrial strength functionality allowing multiple simultaneous operations. For example, while monitoring the progress of several Linux on System z backups, you can change views to kick off a Linux on System z restore, and then switch to see the status of a NetWare backup and then switch view again to see the job log for Windows 2003 server.
Linux on System z Online Non-Disruptive Database Agents
The UPSTREAM agents provide online high performance backup capability, giving you maximum protection for your data without having to bring the database down in order to do your backups. The UPSTREAM agents provide non-disruptive "HOT BACKUP" to manage large amounts of data within your scheduled backup window. UPSTREAM can also be used to backup and restore a database application.
The FDR/UPSTREAM ORACLE agent features include:
FDR/UPSTREAM for Linux on System z is fully integrated into Oracle's Recovery Manager (RMAN), a full-featured backup facility that can be used to perform online and offline, full, incremental and tablespace backups. UPSTREAM achieves high-performance and enhanced scalability through:
The FDR/UPSTREAM UDB agent features include:
FDR/UPSTREAM fully integrates with IBM's DB2 Universal Server, another full-featured facility that includes online and offline backup of complete databases or individual tablespaces. UPSTREAM can operate as a user exit that allows on demand or system generated transaction log backups, which act as incrementals and result in reduced data transmission.
The FDR/UPSTREAM Lotus Notes Domino agent features include:
FDR/UPSTREAM provides a robust, integrated solution for the protection of critical Notes and Domino information, enabling online backups of Lotus Domino for Linux on zSeries without disrupting user productivity. This means that UPSTREAM can perform online full backups of databases (even if in use) as well as incremental backups by backing up Notes transaction logs; which is essential if you are using transaction logging.
FDR/UPSTREAM provides a comprehensive solution for file systems as well as databases. UPSTREAM file system support can be used to recover the Notes application. UPSTREAM can be used to recover a Notes database in a disaster recovery as well as a point-in-time recovery. UPSTREAM can also allow the database to be restored to an alternate location. UPSTREAM can perform incremental backups of databases where Notes reports that a new backup is needed or if a DBIID change is detected and the database is backed up to assure recovery from transaction logs.
The FDR/UPSTREAM support is extensive as it includes databases, transaction logs, and templates, and also automatically backups important non-database data, such as Notes ID files, and notes ini files. The UPSTREAM agent does this via the efficient easy-to-use PlugIn method.
Simple installation that takes minutes...not days
Just a few simple steps are required before you can start running your FDR/UPSTREAM for Linux on System z backups.
