Archive Backup System (ABS) for OpenVMS is a backup product that automates backup operations, provides for system archiving, and makes it easy to find files stored on tapes and disks. ABS uses the native BACKUP Utility to perform backups of OpenVMS systems. ABS saves the data as OpenVMS savesets which are stored on media that resides in an archive file system. The supported archive files systems are tapes and files-11 disks. ABS uses catalogs to keep track of where the data is stored. MDMS is the Media, Device and Management Services component of the ABS. MDMS is a Client-Server application. The MDMS Database Server manages database object access. The MDMS clients make requests to the server regarding objects. The objects are ARCHIVES, CATALOGS, DRIVES, ENVIRONMENTS, GROUPS, JUKEBOXES, LOCATIONS, MAGAZINES, POOLS, RESTORES, SAVES, SCHEDULES, SELECTIONS, and VOLUMES. Remote Device Facility (RDF) software is included within the media management software. RDF provides the ability to use a tape drive on a remote OpenVMS system.
