TBMR Bare Machine Recovery for IBM Spectrum Protect

System Recovery for
IBM Spectrum Protect

TBMR lets you perform a complete bare machine system recovery direct from an IBM Spectrum Protect backup. It also provides recovery assurance, as the software can be scheduled to run through a complete recovery process. This fully automates the creation of the recovered machine and then runs test scripts to verify integrity and functionality.

Extending IBM Spectrum Protect to provide System Recovery to Physical, Virtual or Cloud targets

Recover entire systems following a disaster or cyberattack​

Cristie TBMR software protects your critical servers by recovering them directly from your IBM Spectrum Protect backups.

Trust your DR environment with Cristie recovery simulation

Adding TBMR to your Spectrum Protect environment allows recovery of operating systems, applications, user configuration and data to any point in time available in your Networker backup software. With our enhanced testing you can simulate system recovery with DR automation to verify that your recovery procedures will work when you need them most, and all without having to rely on manual intervention.

Comprehensive reports to meet compliance directives​

System DR process audits are a core component of many industry compliance directives. Our DR orchestration tools enable the automation of system recovery simulation reports to simplify your regulatory compliance procedures.

How TBMR works

TBMR lets you perform a complete bare machine system recovery direct from a Spectrum Protect backup. It also provides recovery assurance, as the software can be scheduled to run through a complete recovery process. This fully automates the creation of the recovered machine and then runs test scripts to verify integrity and functionality.

Schedules can be set up months in advance and planned so that the entire server infrastructure is tested over the course of the desired timeframe.

The recovery machines are held in an isolated network and can be released after every simulation, so storage is not permanently required. Detailed reporting highlights any problems encountered and provides an audit track of successful results.

Broad OS and virtualization platform support

  1. Install TBMR on the client system to be protected.
  2. License the software using a trial or full license. The software will then gather configuration parameters, including details about the hard disks, operating system, storage controller, network adapter and network settings. Some of these details can be tailored.
  3. Perform a standard Spectrum Protect backup.
  4. Boot the recovery environment on the target system and monitor the automated restore process.

TBMR requires one license per system it protects and includes 12 months’ free support & maintenance.
