CA CREWS Catalog Recovery
Company:
CA
BrightStor CA-CREWS Catalog Recovery (BrightStor CA-CREWS) helps data center personnel quickly and easily identify ICF catalog problems and recover from disasters. BrightStor CA-CREWS offers forward recovery, backup and restore functions that are more convenient than IBM's IDCAMS.

CA Log Analyzer for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
Log Analyzer can help to establish recovery procedures for your organization, or it can aid in executing a disaster recovery. No other tool enables you to fully utilize the information stored in the DB2 log and SMF audit trace records. And no other tool provides the DB2 data you're looking for in such a concise, easy-to-read format. Log Analyzer covers the entire spectrum of analysis needs, from auditing table access to monitoring the recoverability of critical DB2 tablespaces.

Catalog BaseLine
Company:
Rocket Software
Catalog BaseLine supports the 'empty catalog' methodology at the disaster recovery site, providing you with a simpler, cleaner solution.

CICS/Forward Recovery System
Company:
MacKinney
When a VSAM file is corrupted or lost you need to recover it quickly and correctly. CICS' journal facility provides the data, but it is each installation's responsibility to have computer disaster recovery plans with recovery programs for each file which CICS updates. Most installations have not done this. MacKinney Systems Forward Recovery System for CICS (CICS/FRS) fills this void.

CopyExport Manager
Company:
Rocket Software
Automation, Auditing and Comprehensive Reporting for TS7740 Copy Export OpenTech Systems' CopyExport Manager (CEM) is a parameter driven software product which runs under z/OS and automates IBM's TS7740 copy export (CE) process. CEM may be used in either a TS7740 stand-alone or grid configuration and automates the CE process by eliminating the need for REXX coding to implement CE. CEM automates the CE processes required to make copies of tape datasets and export them from the TS7740 for shipment to the vault. CEM also provides several additional features to audit the entire export process and creates a database to track logical to physical relationships, provide extensive reporting, and ensure a successful recovery.

DASD Backup Supervisor
Company:
Rocket Software
Automated, Secure DASD Backup & Recovery.DASD Backup Supervisor (DBS) incorporates years of hard earned backup and recovery experience along with highly-developed "Best Practices" to provide a secure, automated solution to your DASD backup/recovery and compliance requirements.

DR/Xpert
Company:
Rocket Software
Automated Audit, Backup and Recovery for DB2 Data. Ensuring that recently changed DB2 data is backup up and recoverable is an important task that must be performed on a regular basis for optimal recovery. Even though keeping track of new, changed and dropped table spaces and indexes and then backing them up is important, it sometimes gives way to the more urgent demands upon a DBA's time. To automatically ensure recoverability, DR/Xpert for DB2 audits the DB2 Catalog for changes and automatically creates the JCL for the backup and recovery processes

Fast DASD Erase
Company:
NewEra
Erasing test data at the end of a Disaster Recovery test may be one of the most important steps of the test itself. SAE users enjoy peace of mind knowing they have completely erased all mission-critical and personal data, thereby safeguarding it from unwanted use. This is especially important in an era of government regulations, such as HIPAA, GLBA, PIPEDA, etc. Users also appreciate the reduction in time and money saved during the actual erasure.

FDRDRP
Company:
Innovation Data Processing
FDRDRP (Disaster/Recovery Product) makes it practical to restore data right up to the point of the most recent incremental. FDRDRP enhances ABR volume recovery. With FDRDRP, multiple disk volumes that have been backed up onto high-capacity tapes can be restored in one pass of each tape. This eliminates repeated mounts of the backup tapes and greatly reduces the elapsed time of the disaster restores. As a result, recovery time can be slashed by up to 80%.

GENDB2
Company:
UBS Hainer
Disaster Recovery for z/OS DB2.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager
Company:
IBM
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager enables you to protect your organization's data from failures and other errors by storing backup, archive, space management and bare-metal restore data, as well as compliance and disaster-recovery data in a hierarchy of offline storage.
