Enterprise DistribuTape (EDT) allows Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) users to:

  • Achieve optimal tape resource utilization
  • Minimize tape asset access times
  • Create highly resilient tape environments
  • Eliminate performance bottlenecks
  • Maximize data throughput

EDT achieves this via its HBA load balancing, data path failover and library virtualization features combined with intimate knowledge of the capabilities of a user’s chosen tape hardware. EDT enables organizations to better control CAPEX and OPEX within their tape environment and take full advantage of tape by making smarter use of tape assets, while reducing their total cost of tape ownership.

Gresham participates and contributes to various open source projects which you can find out about here.
