TANDsoft’s FS Backup and Restore – Say Goodbye to Whole File Backup



tandsoft logo

It has no competitor in the HPE NonStop environment.  TANDsoft’s FS Backup and Restore reduces backup times from hours to minutes by backing up and restoring only data block differences, not whole files.  How does it work?…by incorporating the same block hash compare technology that has proven so successful in TANDsoft’s FileSync and FS Compare and Repair solutions. Introduce yourself to all three at the upcoming NonStop Technical Boot Camp in October.

Whole Files Backed Up On Day One, Then Only Changed Data Blocks Within Files Backed Up Moving Forward

Whether a company backs up data on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, FS Backup detects file data-block modifications and archives only the changes.  Redundant data is not archived. FS Restore then retrieves and applies the modifications to rebuild the original file. The product is popular with HPE NonStop customers whose hours-long backups are creating challenges within their processing environments. FS Backup and Restore does not replace HPE NonStop Backup and Restore utilities.  It complements them as well as all other third-party physical and virtual NonStop tape products and storage solutions.

FS Backup and Restore Backs Up To Disc, Then Optionally to Tape

Unlike the commonly used methodology of backing up directly to tape or virtual tape, FS Backup and Restore backs up to disc, then optionally (based on a customer’s preference) to physical or virtual tape for safekeeping. Since changes only are backed up, far less storage is required.  A month’s worth of dailies and more can be backed up easily to disc. This allows for tremendous efficiencies not only in storage requirements but also in backup time.  From hours to minutes.
