FilesX Xpress Restore & TSM

If you click the title of this post you can read the news article that explains this new tool that has been validated to work with TSM. It provides a block level disk backup of application data allowing TSM to work with the Xpress Restore repository enhancing the speed of backups...This is one tool I would like more information on so I will be looking into how it works with TSM.


  1. Hi, Chad,

    I'm the director of marketing at FilesX and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have about our product. As it concerns TSM, our primary value proposition is in providing a fast disk-based, recovery solution that sits between the applications and TSM. We provide a file system view of the data we have backed up, so TSM can grab it from us without impacting the production servers.

    Let me know if you need anything else, and have a great day.

  2. Rich,

    If you have any presentations or documenations covering the product and would like to post it here I'll gladly do so. I think this would be a valuable time saver with the amount of data growth everyone is having. Customers and management are also becoming unreasonable in their backup requirements with large DB's so I definitely want more information on this.
