IBM announces the addition of two products from Cristie Software - CloneManager® and Recovery Simulator on 7 October 2014.

CloneManager® is a machine mobility solution that creates exact copies of running machines in a different environment. It is used for replicating, syncing and moving operating systems, applications and associated data between and within different physical, virtual and cloud environments. Users can optimize resource allocation, manage their server infrastructure, and utilise disaster recovery (DR) capabilities. CloneManager currently supports migration to and from Microsoft Azure with support for SoftLayer and AWS being released shortly.

Recovery Simulator provides assurance that machines are recoverable from their backups and allows TSM users to automate and schedule full disaster recovery tests and report on the results. It is available in conjunction with TBMR (BMR for TSM) as well as a standalone solution for users of IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager for Virtual Environments (TSM for VE). The TSM for VE option provides a low cost mechanism for testing recovery to a VM that it creates within a protected TSM for VE managed environment.

The Cristie products will be available to IBM Sellers and Channel Partners via IBM Passport Advantage® (“PPA”) quoting and ordering system. Click here to read the Announcement Letter.
