Prague 17 is one of the city's 57 self-governing administrative districts, responsible for public housing, building control, the administration of bylaws and certain local taxes, the issuing of identity cards and passports, and various other services. The district employs around 100 people. To ensure the safety of its critical data, Prague 17 performed a daily backup to tape - a slow process, and one that required considerable manual effort from its IT administrators. Working with ELAT, an IBM Business Partner, Prague 17 deployed IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) to provide a rapid, dual-tier backup solution across multiple operating system environments. Workstation data is now backed up to a disk array every night, and moved onto tape once a week for off-site storage.
