    Default Storing TSM's backup data in cloud

    Hi All,

    I would like to know whether data backed up by TSM can be stored in the storage space available in cloud.

    Is there a possibility in TSM to re-direct the data backed up to a IP address or URL.

    Thanks in advance..


    Regards,
    Karthik

    If by IP address, and the IP address presents itself as a NFS mount AND this is a permanent allocation, then it would be possible through devclass=file.

    JUST make sure that everytime TSM is rebooted, the NFS mount point is available.

    I don't think via URL is possible UNLESS it can be presented as, again, a NFS mount.

    Moon-Buddy is correct, but the link needs to be good also since you wont have a dedupe function available using the cloud.

    i tried that, but it didn't work. some software mount doesn't get reflected in the diskpart in windows. tsm uses the windows api to identify the disk and some softwares that mount cloud storage don't register the volume in diskpart... a bit strange. don't how it gets shown as a volume "z:" but doesn't appear in diskpart.... is there a particular application you use to make this happen?
