Capability for parallel save and restore for big library with BRMS and IBM Cloud Storage Solutions for I
We are implementing an IBM i backup solution based on BRMS & IBM Cloud Storage Solutions for I and COS Servers as a replacement of ProtecTIER VTL, and deploying it on 67 IBM i 7.2 and 7.4 partitions.
We absolutely need that IBM provides us the capability to backup in parallel mode and restore automatically from this backup. We need to backup and restore a big library on multiple virtual tapes. These features must be provided and supported with COS solution in order to achieve at least the same backup and recovery times as with ProtecTIER VTL, particularly when we run the BRMS QCLDUSYS01 control group in a restricted state, and when we restore the entire system.
The need is to be able to backup one big library on multiple drives (eg 12 ) in parallel mode (using library list: WRKLBRM).
Parallel save and restore capability with IBM Cloud Storage Solutions for I (5733-ICC) would bring equivalent or better performance than the existing solution with ProtecTIER.
Backup one LPAR with 2793 Go on 3H10 with 12 drives on ProtecTIER. One LPAR with 2981 Go takes 4H44 with 1 virtual drive on IASP/COS. And with 12 virtual drives, we have 3H20 on IASP/COS
