LXI's MMS enhances EMC Symmetrix

iSeries media management completes the information life cycle for EMC Symmetrix


LXI Corp. announced the integration of flagship storage management solution for the IBM iSeries, Media Management System (MMS), with EMC Corp.'s CopyPoint software through the EMC Developers Program.

The integration allows MMS to fully automate the entire backup process for Symmetrix storage systems attached to the IBM iSeries. MMS provides detailed catalog information about data backed up from the Symmetrix, enabling the fast, efficient and specific recovery of lost or damaged objects.

"MMS for the iSeries enhances EMC Symmetrix by introducing fully automated backups, automated tape library management, catalogs of all saved libraries and objects, and sophisticated off-site vault management," said Tim Kormos, product manager at LXI. "Customers can now employ an end-to-end data protection strategy that provides high availability, business continuity and disaster recovery."

About MMS
MMS for the iSeries is a comprehensive family of storage management applications that efficiently preserves, protects and restores data. MMS simplifies, prioritizes and automates backups and backup policies, performs concurrent saves, and automates recovery options. Hierarchical storage management helps ensure storage resources are used efficiently, and spool file management automates the archiving and restoring of spool files, reports and special forms. Because MMS uses no proprietary commands, the integration into the customer environment is seamless.

Hot backups of Lotus Notes/Domino, automated tape consolidation and duplication, device management, and tape library management bring cutting-edge iSeries backup control to the data center. Quick access to saved data, extensive vaulting, and offsite management gives customer confidence in a quick recovery in the event of a disaster. MMS gives managers the flexibility to adapt the solution to a wide range of data protection and recovery requirements.
