Benefits of IBM Tivoli Software Solutions
- Save money on Tape media – if your TSM reclamation process is not completing you will use more tapes than you need to. Increase reclamation levels or, merge storage pools.
- Save money on Disk Storage – actively manage your attached storage and make the most of expensive SANs.
- Examine your TSM Policies – review the policies and ensure they are still relevant, in addition, segregate user data and operating system data, and apply separate policies
Use Recarta to manage your Passport Advantage agreement – Recarta will consolidate contracts and co-terminate them, which could entitle you for volume discounts when procuring new Tivoli software licences. Recarta can also assist in checking your IBM PA licence entitlement – it is up to you to check your entitlement – but Recarta has the expertise and resources to assist to make sure you are not over or under- licenced and above all save you money on your Tivoli license renewals.
Virtualise to Save – IBM licence TSM software on physical CPU cores not on virtual machines. By virtualising your servers onto Power7 you will vastly reduce the number of software licenses you need to purchase.
De-duplication – consider a Virtual Tape Library (VTL) technology. By using deduplication you can get the same capacity with far fewer disk drives.
