Tivoli Systems, Compaq Pen Delivery Deal

Tivoli Systems has announced an agreement with Compaq to deliver storage management products for Enterprise customers.

To leverage the connectivity and performance benefits of a storage area network (SAN), Tivoli Storage Manager will provide backup, recovery, and management of data for Compaq's StorageWorks Enterprise Backup Solution. This StorageWorks Fibre Channel data-protection product leverages customers' existing investments in servers and tape libraries while introducing an open SAN infrastructure to enable consolidated, shared storage, increased performance, and lower management costs.

Tivoli's Storage Manager version 4.1.1 features automated network backup, tape resource sharing, network-free rapid data delivery, and LAN-free and multi-threaded data transfer.
