FDR

Backup Encryption (FDRCRYPT)

Encrypts FDF and FDRABR backups protecting data against unauthorized access.

Acts as a front-end to IBM’s IDCAMS utility to allow VSAM, IAM and PS files created with REPRO commands to be encrypted.

Generates unique keys for each backup ensures every installation has a secure key management system.

Point in time backup (FDRINSTANT)

Creates a “managed” point-in-time backup of data with minimal disruption to online processing.

Works in coordination with FDR, FDRDSF, FDRCOPY, FASTCPK and FDRABR to provide an integrated, full or incremental backup solution.

Works in tandem with Db2 Log Suspend to backup Db2 databases without having to close any databases. Using this backup, a single Db2 Tablespace or the entire Db2 system can be restored.

Supports key third-party storage providers including EMC, Hitachi, IBM and Sun StorageTek.

FDRINSTANT includes FDRINST/BCV, FDRINST/HDS, FDRINST/FLSH and FDRINST/SNAP.
