The easy way to incrementally backup billons of objects
dsmISI MAGS enables fast backup and restore of large productive file services (e.g. NetApp) as well as big data and business analytics applications with billions of objects in combination with IBM Spectrum Protect (ISP).
Benefits of dsmISI MAGS
IBM Spectrum Protect is still the only software capable of continuously backing up file systems entirely incrementally. With extremely large file systems, containing many millions or even billions of objects, this approach, however, does have its limits. Very often the time used for identifying changed, new or deleted objects alone takes days or even weeks – and thus renders a service level which requires a daily backup cycle which is impossible to achieve.
Is easy to install, configure, test and monitor
Doesn’t alter the backup data structure
Scales across a practically unlimited number of ISP client machines
Doesn’t require change in backup structure
Is continuously optimizing its own configuration in order to use available resources (CPU, RAM, scan depth, etc.) to greatest possible effect
Can, if applicable, use snapshots of a file system in order to avoid errors resulting from user activity during backup

dsmISI MAGS (Massive Attack General Storage) solves this fundamental problem by accelerating identification of changes and the resulting movement of data by orders of magnitude.
Comes with a convenient graphical user interface which supports configuration and shows detailed information about running jobs
Is compatible with most file servers and ISP client software version 6.3 or later
When backing up scale-out file servers (like Dell EMC Isilon), dsmISI MAGS can automatically utilize all reachable cluster nodes to further accelerate backup
In most cases using dsmISI MAGS doesn’t require additional hardware for ISP clients or servers already in use
Even extremely large and busy file systems can be backed up incrementally within a reasonable timespan using regular ISP incremental backup when controlled

“The solution dsmISI impresses with brilliant simplicity and has helped us to implement a sustainable security concept. It is a brilliant idea to break large storage jobs into thousands of small jobs. This way we get mass data backups in finite time. Concat has technical expertise, is passionate about what it does and always sees the big picture. Every project is perfectly prepared, worked through in detail and in the end everything works as it should. You don’t get that from anyone else in the market. The oath of allegiance comes when there are really serious problems. Concat has proven to be a reliable partner even then. It’s worth its weight in gold.”
