Call for Papers

We are seeking technical contributions in the form of papers and presentations from the ISP (formerly TSM or ADSM) user community - the system managers and administrators who are arguably the real ISP (TSM) experts - and this is an excellent chance to share your knowledge and wisdom and - hopefully - get new ideas for improvement.

Possible topics / Ideas for a contribution

  • Experiences / Usage Scenarios
  • Changing Perspectives of Backup/Restore to Data Storage Concepts
  • Protection of virtualized environments
  • Data Protection products for applications (databases, mail, SAP)
  • “Dealing with Growth: HSM, Deduplication, ...” 
  • DR Strategies in a world of limited backup/restore scenarios
  • New Tape and Library Technologies
  • Data Security - Data shredding / Encryption
  • Dealing with the Cloud: CRUD devices and Big Data
  • Changing ISP Backup devices: From Tape to Cloud and back again

 As in former years there will be three groups of talks:

  • "Tech talks" will give a deeper look inside ISP, concepts behind / around backup, new functions in ISP and new hardware and technologies also.
  • "User Talks" focus on Experience, User Scenarios and approaches to improve the usage of ISP.
  • "Vendor talks" as technical contributions from TSM solution architects and related storage vendors are also sought: this is an opportunity to demonstrate the flexibility and extensibility of ISP.

The conference language will be English. All talks will have to be held in English language.
