Backup and archive server system TSM ( machine hall, computer center )
The programming system TSM (Tivoli Storage Manager), former called
ADSM (Adstar Distributed Storage Manager, version 3.1)
provides automated storage management services to multivendor workstations,
personal computers, and local area network (LAN) file servers.
ADSM allowes users to maintain backup versions of their files, which they can
restore if the original files are lost or damaged, that means all users directly
connected to our University Computernet could backup their files automated on a
central server. The computer center provides (actually up to 3) backup versions
to be restored anytime by users. Of course the computer center itself uses this
way to backup own files. Our actual configuration (testing phase) provides
backups for central server files and filesets from our University DCE-cell
(Distributed Computing Environment, DFS) up to about 10 terabyte of data.
The new server system is a IBM RS/6000 F-50,
actual configuration with two-way symmetric PowerPC 604e processor card (332 MHz), 256 MB
main memory and 36 GB drive capacity (SSA) under IBMs operating system AIX 4.3.1.
As robot we use a Exabyte 220 automated 8mm tape library with two mammoth
drives and 20 cartridges (each with 20 GB capacity uncompressed, AME 170m)
and standard bar code scanner.
Parallel computer IBM RS/6000 SP (machine hall,
In the current stage of development the IBM SP covers 14
processors, of which everyone represents a high speed workstation for
itself, and which are operational completely integrated under IBMs Unix
version (AIX V4.2.1) and the Distributed Computing Environment (DCE)
with a maximum performance of nine giga floating-point operations per
