BRMS Setup & Configuration

For companies of all sizes, a backup and recovery plan is critical to an overall Disaster Recovery Plan. iTech Solutions has the experience to help you ensure your IBM i backups are complete.


An accurate backup routine must be maintained to guarantee data is stored securely and is available for recovery. The IBM i Backup, Recovery and Media Services (BRMS) application implements a disciplined approach to managing IBM i backups, while providing an orderly way to retrieve lost or damaged data.
Operating on a single Power System server, a logical partition, or a network of IBM i systems, BRMS is a solution for policy-driven backup, recovery, tape media management, and archive services for tape devices.


BRMS offers companies a means to backup management that will save time and money. BRMS also performs daily maintenance activities related to your backup and allows full recovery of your system in the event of a disaster or failure.
