Smarter data protection is crucial in today’s digital world; IT admins and application owners know that they need to be getting the most value from data and have it available and secure anytime, fast and from any location.
In our last blog post, we talked about IBM Spectrum Protect as a data protection platform that gives enterprises a single point of control and administration for backup and recovery. It delivers built-in efficiency with data deduplication and incremental ‘forever’ backups, reducing costs for data protection and giving you the ability to focus on more.
IBM Spectrum Protect Plus expands data protection and recovery to meet the challenges of virtual and cloud environments.
Virtual Machines (VMs) allow organizations to quickly scale out and add capacity depending on the current needs. But, the rapid growth of VMs means the sheer amount of data organizations need to protect is also increasing, as well as the number of roles involved with access and management.
This major commitment of IT resources, as well as time and money, is where IBM Spectrum Protect Plus can help.
- Automatically back up all of the VMs and application data associated with VM workloads, improving data integrity and data availability.
- Features intuitive self-service portals and SLA-based backup templates to ensure policy compliance and see job status at a glance
- Designed to be installed quickly and provided protection for VMs, databases, and files within an hour when deployed as an Open Virtual Appliance (OVA).
- Search and recovery of single-file functionality allows for granular recovery of files from global catalogs.
- Integration with Spectrum Protect to ensure corporate governance/compliance
- Feed Reporting and analytics for data reuse
- Backup data clone for fast development cycles
IBM Spectrum Protect Plus manages the data lifecycle with a modern, integrated approach to snapshots, copy management, and data availability. While also considered a standalone solution, it integrates with the IBM Spectrum Protect, a leading enterprise backup tool, for scale and efficiency to further complement multi-tier storage solutions.
