IBM FastBack for Workstations

IBM FastBack for Workstations


Employees of RWTH Aachen can use the software "IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Workstations" in the framework of the federal TSM licences (TSM Landeslizenzen).

This software offers uninterupted, almost simultaneous backup especially for Windows desktop and laptop computers:

  • uninterrupted protected files are saved on a local drive when they were changed.
  • Additionally, files can be copied regularly to an external memory area e.g. an institutes network drive or a fileserver, based on a schedule. The network drive or the fileserver can then again be backed up via the TSM Backup on one of the IT Center's backup servers.

Example: Selecting storage location (external drive E:\):


The backup is conducted locally, i.e. no central server solution is available.

The software can be obtained free of charge by RWTH institutes via the Software-Shop.
