System Backup for Linux on IBM Power

Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin) was the first bare-metal recovery solution for Linux on Power back in 2004. Since then, we have continued to support Linux on IBM Power hardware and were the first to provide our flexible full-system backup and bare-metal recovery for Red Hat, Ubuntu, and SUSE Linux running on IBM’s new Power8 Systems (le).

SBAdmin is the leader in Adaptable System Recovery (ASR). This allows for restoration of the entire system (operating system and user data) onto same or different system or disk configurations (referred to as hardware migration or cloning). Because it is file-based backup rather than a disk image, you can perform individual file restores.

No other backup utility, not even AIX mksysb, has all the system backup and disaster recovery features and flexibility of SBAdmin. Storix first introduced SBAdmin for AIX in 1999, providing the most reliable system recovery, cloning and hardware migration for IBM RS/6000 systems available.

Where is my mksysb for Linux?

With SBAdmin, you get more than just the command line utilities of mksysb. You get a complete backup management system that allows not only bare-metal recovery of your Linux on Power Red Hat, Ubuntu, and SUSE systems, but regularly scheduled filesystem and directory backups. This includes backup and recovery of Linux on Power systems running SAP Hana!
