TSM Backup Solution for Server and Selective Data
TSM backup, where "TSM" is an acronym for "Tivoli Storage Manager" is a bunch of backup software solutions provided by IBM. TSM backup software can save data copies to different storage types, as well as manage any methods of backup (such as TSM progressive incremental backup).
Advantages of the TSM Backup Tool
Using IBM TSM backup brings some advantages to both end-users and administrators of entire network domains and clusters, including:
Virtual Machine Backup
For VMware virtual machines, IBM has a complete virtual backup solution, which compares to almost no typical backup software existed on a market (except some all-inclusive solutions such as Handy Backup, also providing a service related to VMware).
Usability of IBM TSM Backup
The main question about TSM backup is the qualification and skill of personnel making front-end tasks for a TSM backup solution. Many details of the interface (such as tuning a TSM incremental backup) may require a specific level of knowledge, and, perhaps, some special training.
Costs and Fees
As for any commercial backup solution, TSM backup is costly. Depending of data size, storage type and backup functions, you can expect to kiss some dollars every month to support data security and consistency. Despite that, even individual users find these costs affordable for a service.
Technical Support and Internal Security Measures
Any TSM backup solution has both strong technical support and information service, starting from a detailed description on a web site and including such things as operative calls to IBM tech support crew. Regular internal backups and maintenance services will guarantee security for your data.

Advantages of Handy Backup over Own TSM Backup Software
With Handy Backup, you can use not just a single data vault (as typical cloud for TSM backup tool) but also a plenty of storage solutions including local drives, USB and NAS units. Network folders, FTP servers and different clouds such as any S3 or WebDAV-based cloud, Dropbox, Box or OneDrive.
Again, Handy Backup is a sort of "open" system for different data, allowing backing up not only files and folders but also databases, virtual machines, disk images, network content, websites, CMS data, cloud accounts, emails, corporate-level message mases such as Lotus Notes or MS Exchange, registry etc.
Finally, Handy Backup provides many interface and implementation features different from a TSM backup tool, allowing such things as user notification and task reporting by emails, running as package or as a Windows service in a "stealth" mode, streamed encryption/compression and many other things.
A significant bonus of Handy Backup is that has a clear, direct payment politics, including all support and updates of a minor version in a single payment. This licensing policy requires no commissions, fees or regular payments during the lifetime of a major product version.
