IBM Spectrum Protect

Automated Deployment Steps

IBM Spectrum Protect blueprints and configuration scripts help reduce deployment time and guesswork by automating deployment steps and integrating best practices for small, midsized and large environments. Simplified solution bundles—such as IBM Spectrum Protect Suite and IBM Spectrum Storage Suite can help you get up and running faster with easy-to-manage licensing that includes snapshots and popular backup agents for virtual environments, databases, email and enterprise resource planning.

Built-In Cloud Integration

This solution provides security-rich and cost-effective backup in the cloud. IBM Spectrum Protect container storage pools enable external cloud and object storage without additional hardware or gateways on popular cloud environments such as IBM Cloud, IBM Cloud Object Storage, Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure Blob storage. These container storage pools include in-line deduplication for efficient use of space and bandwidth as well as encryption to ensure that your data is secure.

Integration with IBM Spectrum Protect Plus

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus is a data protection and availability solution that simplifies VM and file recovery and access. It unlocks your data to provide value for emerging use cases, and can either be implemented as a stand-alone solution or integrate with your IBM Spectrum Protect environment to off load copies for long-term storage and governance efficiently at scale.

Optimized Data Protection

This solution enables advanced data protection for current and next-generation environments including cloud, virtualized and software-defined environments; core applications; and remote facilities. Data managed by IBM Spectrum Protect is replicated to offsite recovery facilities for safekeeping. It enables fast, flexible restores from primary and remote recovery sites to help recover individual items, complex systems and entire data centers.

Reduced Backup Infrastructure Costs

IBM Spectrum Protect can help save up to 53 percent in backup infrastructure costs. Savings are typically found in storage media, backup servers, data center floor space, power and cooling. IBM Spectrum Protect high-performance deduplication, compression and incremental forever capabilities work together to reduce backup storage requirements. For maximum cost flexibility, it enables a broad choice of storage options for backup data, including flash, disk, tape, object stores and public clouds.

Virtualized, Software-Defined Infrastructures

IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments and IBM Spectrum Protect Snapshot can back up and restore data residing in virtual, software-defined environments without negatively impacting applications and operations that share the underlying physical resources. IBM offers a choice in data protection options, including incremental “forever” backups and hardware-assisted snapshots.
