    • File System and Custom Application support with TSM IntegrationTivoli Technical Enablement§  Integrated backups for File Systems/Custom Applications to be offloaded into TSM§  Prior to FCM 3.2, TSM integration for File Systems/Custom Applications was manual FlashCopy Manager Local Logical Snapshot Volume Snapshot Versions TSM Backup Server Custom Apps 1. User stops or suspends application. This can be automated using the TSM PRESNAPSHOT option. 2. User executes FlashCopy Manager command to perform a snapshot of volumes containing the application files. 3. User restarts or resumes application. This can be automated using the TSM POSTSNAPSHOT option.4 4. Snapshot is optionally sent to TSM by FCM © 2012 IBM Corporation
    • Tivoli Technical Enablement Just-in-time import/export of VSS snapshots§  VSS snapshots are mapped to production/offload host only when needed , they are no longer mapped by default§  New option in FCM 3.2, which works for clustered and non-clustered systems§  Avoids consuming limited host system resources to maintain a large number of snapshots§  In VMware/ESX environments SCSI device limits are not exhausted FlashCopy Manager Local Logical Snapshot Volume Snapshot Versions Backup Custom No Mapping Required Apps5 © 2012 IBM Corporation

    • Add VMWare support for backup/restore of VMs with Raw Device MappingsTivoli Technical Enablement • VM1 Many databases and applications use Raw Disks/ Partitions for performance reasons. LUN1 When using FCM for VMware, this new VM1’s Virtual disk enhancement avoids errors in VM restores that have raw device mappings. Snaps SAN VM1 LUN2 VM1’s Physical RDMDisk Subsystem14 © 2012 IBM Corporation
    • Add VMWare support for backup/restore of VMs with Raw Device MappingsTivoli Technical Enablement §  Types of RDMs: - pRDMs (physical) and vRDMs (virtual) §  FCM’s Support: -  FCM supports both in toleration mode §  FCM‘s Toleration Mode: - Clear indication that the virtual disk was skipped inserted in the OVF configuration file and in saved Object Info Disk structure - Disks treated exactly as if the user had excluded these disks from the backup § How to protect them: - FCM inside the VM can be used to protect RDMs §  Examples of Applications and Databases that may use RDMs: –  Oracle, Informix, SQL Server, MYSQL –  DB2 on Linux –  MS Exchange15 –  BEA Tuxedo © 2012 IBM Corporation

    • Concurrent Attach of Multiple VMs from same BackupTivoli Technical Enablement §  FCM 3.1 –  Manages VMs one at a time, customers cannot attach/detach multiple VMs concurrently §  FCM 3.2: –  Allows concurrent attach of multiple VMs from the same backup –  Supports granular detach operations which allow to detach VMs at the VM level so that other attached VMs within the same backup are not affected –  Allows concurrent operations while VMs of a backup are attached, e.g. restore and tape backup –  Maintains meta information of attached VMDKs in its internal repository, which will allow additional attach operations for the same backup and concurrent operations –  Provides a new view in the GUI that displays all attached VMs and gives the possibility to detach virtual disks on VM level granularity17 © 2012 IBM Corporation
    • Tivoli Technical Enablement More Enhancements §  Backup & Restore of VMware Templates §  Backup & Restore of VMs within a vApp §  Restore VMs to the original resource pool location assuming the resource pool still exists §  Plugin GUI enhancements - More easily select VMs to be backed up - Better reporting on backup tasks18 © 2012 IBM Corporation

    • • 2012 Tivoli Europe Academy Support of individual disk volume backup/restore for VMware virtual disks §  Users can specify which virtual disks are backed up or restored - Disks not needed to be protected can be skipped saving storage space and backup time - Skipped disk configuration information saved to the backup ( also pRDM) - Skipped disk configuration restored to the VM as an unformatted disk definition §  Allows to specify a “division of labor” between TSM for VE and TSMs for … - Backs up non TSM for … disks while TSM for … agents back up disks specific to them §  Allows individual disks to be restored to an existing VM - Existing VM must be powered off - Disks not specified remain unchanged on existing VM - Can specify that just the VM configuration information be restored25 • | © 2012 IBM Corporation
    • • 2Enhancements in the 012 Tivoli Europe Academy Plugin GUI •  Ability to configure backup ‘by cluster’ •  Configuration Wizard •  Configuration Test Function •  More easily select VMs to be backed up •  Better reporting on backup tasks26 • | © 2012 IBM Corporation

    • Direction: Unified application protection for VMware environmentsTivoli Technical Enablement Recovery36 © 2012 IBM Corporation
    • Direction: Unified application protection for VMware environmentsTivoli Technical Enablement§  Protection of applications/databases introduces additional requirements as compared to file/ web servers traditionally hosted in VMware –  Log management (truncation) for a sustainable backup methodology –  Achievement of multiple recovery points through roll-forward/roll-backward –  Individual email message recovery§  To achieve protection of applications and databases (Microsoft SQL, Exchange, Active Directory, Custom Applications) hosted in a VMware environment –  TSM customers today use TSM for Mail/Databases etc. running inside VMs –  Future goal is to provide application protection that is integrated/unified with TSM for VE§  Looking at various options that could involve integration of product features from –  TSM for VE for common disaster recovery across all VMs –  TSM for Mail/Databases/Custom Applications for application awareness and operational recovery37 © 2012 IBM Corporation
    • First Step: In-guest TSM for VE 6.4 Application/Database support Tivoli Technical Enablement§  Supported for Windows VM (VSS Writer is being called) for MS SQL Server and MS Exchange§  TSM B/A Client (datamover) triggers log truncation at VMware snapshot time§  Injection via Web Services API at runtime§  Allows for consistent Application/Database support in Windows VMs§  No TSM for …. product required inside the VM§  Limited functions for Point in Time restores, restores only possible to the time when the snapshot occurred, no log ‘roll forward’§  No log handling in this scenario-> Running TSM for … inside the VMs is still functionally superior, therefore still recommended 38 © 2012 IBM Corporation
    • Tivoli Technical Enablement TSM for VE 6.4 : VMware Template Support § A virtual machine template (usually referred to as simply“a template”) is a reusable image created from a virtual machine. § The template, as a derivative of the source virtual machine, typically includes virtual hardware components, an installed guest operating system (with any applicable patches) and software application(s). § Templates are VM blueprints from which VMs can be created § TSM for VE 6.3 didn´t support backup/restore of VMware template § TSM for VE 6.4 adds this support39 © 2012 IBM Corporation
    • Tivoli Technical Enablement TSM for VE 6.4 : vAPP Support§ Starting with VMware 4.0, VMware introduce the concept of a vApp container, which is a group of virtual machines that are managed as a single object§ vApp simplifies the management of complex multi-tiered application running on multiple virtual machines§ Another container in the vApp hierarchy is the Resource Pool which provides a mechanism to partition available CPU and memory resource of ESXi host and Clusters§ TSM for VE 6.3 can backup virtual machines contained in vApps, Resource Pools, Clusters and VM Folders but on restore we fail to return these virtual machine back to their original locations, this is due to our failure to save the necessary data40 © 2012 IBM Corporation
