Your investment in Backup, Recovery and Media Services (BRMS) for IBM i is a great way to minimize business disruption during unexpected outages. But are you confident it’s working the way it should? Many IBM i users don’t realize that if their BRMS system hasn’t been configured properly, it won’t protect them during disaster scenarios. Without a thorough assessment, critical files needed for system recovery are not being backed up until it’s too late. Some BRMS implementations have become so complex over time that it can take days or weeks to recover the system. That’s why we developed this BRMS assessment engagement to help you protect your investment.

Who Is This Service For?

BRMS is a critical component of your operations if you have data on any IBM i server anywhere in your IT environment. Because of this, a BRMS assessment is a key part of your long-term success. Regardless of your industry or the size of your organization, you’ll find clear benefits in having an industry expert assess your configuration and setup.

How Does It Work?
