Of course, you have an iSeries backup strategy implemented. But if you had to restore your iSeries systems from your backup tapes, are you sure the restore would work? A Storage Magazine reader survey found that 77% of IT shops that tested their backup reported that their tape backups failed to restore completely.

The worst time to discover your backup tapes will not completely recover your system is when you actually NEED to recover. Additionally, even if you can restore successfully, will the time to complete the restore be acceptable? The iSeries Restore Verification offering from Clear Technologies can help ensure your backups will provide the protection you need to successfully recover your iSeries within an acceptable time frame.
