Dallas TX / January 26, 2009 – – OpenTech Systems, Inc., a leading provider of z/OS Disaster Recovery and Storage Management solutions to automate IT processes and ensure Business Continuity for IBM z/OS centric data centers, today announced a new release of DR/Xpert for DB2 which now automates the backup and recovery for DB2 system objects including the directory and catalog as well as user data.

To automatically ensure recoverability, DR/Xpert for DB2 audits the DB2 catalog and builds the jobs to drive DB2 utilities from IBM , BMC or CA to backup and recover DB2 user data and system objects. There is no need to manually create and maintain backup and recovery JCL. To ensure an efficient recovery, DR/Xpert for DB2 also performs intelligent grouping of DB2 objects and determines the most efficient object image copy and recovery. In addition, DR/Xpert for DB2 supports User-defined Recovery Groups so DB2 objects can be grouped together and assigned a recovery priority which can significantly improve recovery time and recovery point objectives.

“Our clients wanted a DB2 recovery product that would automate the backup and recovery of DB2 system objects as well as user data so we added the system backup capability to DR/Xpert for DB2. DR/Xpert for DB2 complements our family of DR products which audit and automate the DR process. Like our other DR products, DBS and DR/Xpert, DR/Xpert for DB2 performs a recoverability audit to ensure the DB2 system objects and user data can be recovered,” said Bruce Fisher, OpenTech Systems Marketing Director. “DR/Xpert for DB2 is another example of our unwavering commitment to meeting our customer’s needs and ensuring successful recoveries through automation. Automating DR processes is the focus of all our DR products and the value we deliver to our customers.”
