Archive Backup Client (ABC) for OpenVMS

STORServer Archive Backup Client (ABC)
Archive Backup Client (ABC) for OpenVMS


Archive Backup Client (ABC) is the OpenVMS implementation of the IBM Spectrum® Protect backup-archive client. ABC is available for the OpenVMS I64, OpenVMS Alpha, and OpenVMS VAX operating systems. Using ABC commands, you can back up and archive data from your OpenVMS client to an IBM Spectrum Protect server that is running on another operating system, and restore and retrieve data as necessary. ABC commands can be issued directly from the DCL command line or from an interactive session. ABC commands can also be executed using a traditional OpenVMS command procedure.

Some key features of ABC:

  • A well-designed installation procedure that automates ABC configuration
  • A rich set of commands designed for OpenVMS users
  • Templates to simplify scheduling of daily backup and periodic archive operations
  • Full user authentication and OpenVMS file protection
  • Granular, policy-based data management for files, directories, volumes, and servers
  • Sophisticated handling of complex alias file structures
  • Optional Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 265-bit encryption
  • Optional use of Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol for secure communications
  • Developed and supported by former DEC employees with decades of OpenVMS experience
