Elyzium Storage Management Services

Managing your storage infrastructure to ensure your costs don't spiral out of control

Your company's data is priceless. The loss of critical data from equipment failure or environmental factors can be a significant damaging, or even fatal, event.

In fact, research indicates that of the companies that lose their data in a disaster, 90% are out of business within two years. Whether large or small, your company not only needs to protect its data, but it also needs to ensure that its data is successfully backed up on a regular basis.

Elyzium's ITSM Health Check provides a thorough audit of your current IBM Tivoli Storage Manager environment. It will efficiently help ensure that your backups, disaster recovery plans and data retention policies are operating effectively and meeting your growth and performance requirements in line with storage management best practices.
