Tranzman is Stone Ram’s backup transition manager appliance. It has three purposes:
- To empower organisations to have control over the location, composition and cost of maintaining their backup data.
- To allow for the movement of data between vendors, reducing the effect of 'vendor lock-in', and also to facilitate the migration of data to and from cloud-based storage solutions.
- To enable reorganisation of data so it can be split or merged, in order to improve performance or reduce overheads.
The video below demonstrates our prototype appliance performing a Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) to NetBackup migration.
