In March we published our Tranzman development roadmap. It automates backup migrations and acts as a storage server so you can access backed-up data by converting its format when you restore or duplicate it. Here’s a progress update:

Production-ready interface has been completed
The front and back end of Tranzman’s database have been revamped, making it more robust. This will make it quicker and easier for us to integrate additional backup vendor products (origins and destinations) as transition engine plugins.

Backup Exec automated migration plugin
Backup Exec research is well under way and image readers and configuration converter processes are being tested. Prototype plugins have been created to extract and convert the workload configuration and image data from Backup Exec before converting it to NetBackup.

Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) automated backup migration plugin
TSM readers and converters are being expanded to support additional data types, including Lotus Notes, Exchange and MSSQL.
