1 Product Overview

2 What is EDT? Thin-Provisioning for Tape (TPT) software for TSM designed to: – Make resource configuration and allocation quicker – Decrease administration time – Minimize library and drive down time – Create the appearance of an infinite amount of tape storage – Maximize resource utilization to minimize unnecessary capital spend

3 What are EDTs key features? HBA Load Balancing Data Path Failover Library Virtualization – Tape Containers – Library Consolidation – Library Partitioning – Thin Provisioning Access Time Minimization Tape Volume Management – Tape Tracking – Disaster Recovery Media Management for TSM – Tape Media Reconciliation for ACSLS API Driven

4 What was added in v10? FC / SCSI tape library support WWPN / device handle mapping for persistent binding Single license key Centralize configuration of the environment Library aggregation for FC / SCSI tape libraries

7 Why is EDT needed? TSM is focused on data management not device management Survey conducted in 2010 showed: – ~60% of respondents felt TSM did not provide all desired library management functionality – ~66% of respondents felt that tape library configuration in TSM was difficult – ~66% of respondents felt that tape library management in TSM was difficult EDT delivers connectivity optimization that improves backup performance, decreases downtime and enhances data protection EDT addresses shortfalls in library management in TSM that make TSM harder to use EDT enables organizations to better control CAPEX and OPEX within their tape environment and take full advantage of tape by making smarter use of tape assets, while reducing their total cost of tape ownership Greshams customer-centric development programs give customers a way of obtaining library management functionality that would not be otherwise made available

8 Who benefits from using EDT? Organization that are struggling with the following issues: – Backup performance – Tape device availability / HA – Tape capacity planning and management – Concerns over library and drive utilization – Limited budgets to invest in backup / archive and disaster recovery solutions – Limited administrative staff – Management of DR volumes moving in and out of the library
