inventory management system in

The use of terminology regarding network backup systems is somewhat sloppy: the main task of network backup systems is the backup of data. Server and client instances of network backup systems are therefore often known as the backup server and backup client, regardless of what tasks they perform or what they are used for. A particular server instance of a network backup system could, for example, be used exclusively for HSM, so that this instance should actually be called a HSM server - nevertheless this instance would generally be called a backup server. A inventory management system in client that provides the backup function usually also supports archive and the restore of backups and archives - nevertheless this client is generally just known as a backup client. In this book we follow the general, untidy conventions, because the phrase 'backup client' reads better than 'backup-archive-HSM and restore client'.
