In this IBM® Redbooks® publication, we give an overview of different data management topics related to a typical SAP® data center. The intrinsic functionality of SAP is not designed to completely handle all the tasks of a data center by itself, but the SAP system offers several interface possibilities to attach external tools to it to accomplish this task
We explain SAP basic concepts and the issues with SAP data management. We introduce Tivoli® Storage Manager and all of its products that are related to SAP data management. We provide some comparison between database backup and recovery tools. Finally, we discuss data archiving using IBM DB2® CommonStore for SAP, and discuss high availability requirements and disaster recovery considerations.
The second part of this book discusses a practical implementation of SAP backup and recovery with Tivoli Storage Manager. We implement this setup on two separate SAP systems: one running DB2 and the other running Oracle® database. We also implement LAN-free backup and FlashCopy® scenarios.
In the sample implementation section, we show many different tasks, such as backup and restore, database recovery, backup monitoring, and tuning. We also cover some advanced backup/availability considerations, such as split mirror backup and standby databases.
This book helps individuals that operate an SAP environment to devise a strategy for a sound and comprehensive data backup solution using the IBM Tivoli Storage Management product family.

Learn how to develop solutions to handle disasters both large and small. Real-world scenarios illustrate the importance of disaster response (DR) planning.

IT Disaster Response takes a different approach to IT disaster response plans. Rather than focusing on details such as what hardware you should buy or what software you need to have in place, the book focuses on the management of a disaster and various management and communication tools you can use before and during a disaster.

This book examines disasters in general—a compilation of lessons the author learned over the course of years working in IT, reviewing plane crashes, and his experiences as a cave rescuer and cave rescue instructor. Although at first it may seem that none of these are really related, the truth is they all have elements in common. In each case, the unexpected has happened. Just as not all plane crashes are deadly, not all IT mishaps have terrible consequences. With the proper training and approach, many problems can either be avoided in the first place or better handled if they do arise.

The book contains practical guidance on:

How to think about a disaster both before it happens and while it’s happeningHow to apply management skills used in other fields during disastersHow to get everyone on board when it comes to planning for and handling disastersHow to better deal with smaller, more manageable—and more frequently occurring—disasters

What you’ll learn

Discover the difference between a DR solution and a DR plan
Define a disaster — it’s not always of the scale of a fire burning down the building.See when to actually implement your DR plan

Who This Book Is For

IT professionals in charge of developing their company’s disaster recovery plan who also need to raise issues to the required C-level people to make sure they have a viable plan.

This edited volume explores the different and seminal ways colours matter to philosophy. Each chapter provides an insightful analysis of one or more cases in which colours raise philosophical problems in different areas and periods of philosophy.

This historically informed discussion examines both logical and linguistic aspects, covering such areas as the mind, aesthetics and the foundations of mathematics. The international contributors look at traditional epistemological and metaphysical issues on the subjectivity and objectivity of colours. In addition, they also assess phenomenological problems typical of the continental tradition and contemporary problems in the philosophy of mind. The chapters include coverage of such topics as Newton’s and Goethe’s theory of light and colours, how primary qualities are qualitative and colours are primary, explaining colour phenomenology, and colour in cognition, language and philosophy.

Servicelearning is an exciting pedagogy and field of study, offering insight into how academic study and community engagement blend to create social change. In its most traditional conceptualization, servicelearning activities typically manifest within communities where outside individuals address a need. Service learning is purported to have a transforming effect on individual student perspectives by providing students the opportunity to interact with people and enter into situations that allow students to test their predisposition towards others. However, the literature on the impact of servicelearning on participants' acceptance of diversity and development of openmindedness reports mixed outcomes. The purpose of this book is to explore cultural tensions and dynamics within the field of servicelearning. It is not meant to be an exhaustive review of the interplay between culture and service learning, but rather a starting point for an ongoing conversation about how this complex topic impacts the field. In 18 chapters, educators, students, and administrators investigate the cultural values of servicelearning itself and the tensions created when this is at odds with the values of others within K12 and higher education in the United States and abroad. Authors include community organization representatives, researchers, directors of offices of community engagement, university administrators, junior and senior faculty, and former servicelearning undergraduate students. Submissions reflect a range of genres, including theoretical / conceptual pieces, position papers, case studies, and other traditional academic essays, challenging how students and community members are affected by the cultural tensions within servicelearning engagement.
In today's 24 x 7 world, there is likely not a business on this planet, IBM® Smarter Planet® or not, that finds that their storage requirements are growing too fast and demand is starting to outpace supply. Not only this, but in this cost-conscious environment of today, the costs of managing this growth are likely to be eating into the IT budget.

One way to make better use of existing storage without adding more complexity to the infrastructure is the IBM System Storage® SAN Volume Controller (SVC). For many years now this has helped business become more flexible, agile, and introduced an extremely efficient storage environment. SAN Volume Controller is designed to deliver the benefits of storage virtualization in environments from large enterprises to small businesses and midmarket companies.

Virtualizing storage with SAN Volume Controller helps make new and existing storage more effective. SAN Volume Controller includes many functions that are traditionally deployed separately in disk systems. By including these in a virtualization system, SAN Volume Controller standardizes functions across virtualized storage for greater flexibility and potentially lower costs.

Now, with IBM FlashSystemTM storage, SAN Volume Controller is enabled to extend its reach and benefit all virtualized storage. For example, IBM Easy Tier® optimizes use of flash storage. And IBM Real-time CompressionTM enhances efficiency even further by enabling the storage of up to five times as much active primary data in the same physical disk space.

In this IBM Redbooks® publication, we show how to integrate the IBM FlashSystem 820 to provide storage to the SAN Volume Controller, and show how they are designed to operate seamlessly together, reducing management effort.

In this book, which is aimed at pre- and post-sales support, storage administrators, and people that want to get an overview of this new and exciting technology, we show the steps required to implement the IBM FlashSystem 820 in an existing SAN Volume Controller environment. We also highlight some of the new features in SAN Volume Controller that increase performance.
