Get insider tech tips on the most helpful features of Backup, Recovery and Media Services for i (BRMS)! What if your IBM i came equipped with a tool that could help you automate and manage backup/recovery across your enterprise IBM i environment? What’s that, you say? It’s called BRMS for i? That’s right!

BRMS is already available as a licensed program product (LPP), yet many IBM i shops are not taking full advantage of its best features, which can speed their backups and recoveries and ease day-to-day backup management.

Register to attend this webinar where Debbie Saugen, former IBMer and leading BRMS technology expert, highlights its most helpful features, such as:
  • BRMS and FlashCopy for 24/7 operations
  • Virtual tape libraries (VTLs) and BRMS parallel saves
