  • Provide central point of administration for recovering and reporting on SAM FS file systems anywhere in the Enterprise
  • One SAM FS node can control multi libraries and multiple media types
  • The underlying database engine can be one of a variety of commercial databases (due to abstracting the programmatic database layer with AdoDB). Tested databases include mySQL, postgreSQL and ORACLE.
  • Login support can be provided through LDAP, NIS, standard Solaris environment or at the database structure level of Vrestore
  • Helios Ethershare and PCshare are supported in the standard and remote versions of Vrestore

  • Different users are allowed to restore files into select/assigned subdirectories
  • You define which SAM-FS nodes the tape library(s) are located (can be more than one)
  • Available in an English or German language version
  • Can create charts of historical behavior of any of the SAM FS file systems being monitored
  • Processing performance is improved by creating temporary working directories on each server node instead of locating all activity on the central Vrestore server
