BackHome and BackHome/TSM are software products developed by ETI to allow NonStop backup output to be stored on centralized storage servers. BackHome is designed for use with z/OS attached storage subsystems and BackHome/TSM is an extended version that allows backup output to be stored on any server configured with Tivoli Storage Manager Server.
By integrating BackHome with the actions of the NonStop Backup/Restore utility it possible to virtualize the storage device targets and direct NonStop backup objects onto open storage hardware. BackHome has been enhanced to include support of TMF, a self-contained database management protection application. TMF’s tape requirements are fully adapted to the BackHome environment and benefit from the higher capabilities of contemporary storage equipment.
