Organizations are continually being challenged to manage the cost, complexity and capabilities of their backup systems with the collection, processing and storage of more information than ever before. Stringent compliance demands, growing backup infrastructure complexity and flat IT budgets are increasing demands on backup administrators and the solutions that they utilize to provide rapid access to stored data.

IBM Spectrum Protect (formerly the Tivoli Storage Manager family) simplifies and automates data protection regardless of whether the data is hosted in physical, virtual, software-defined or cloud environments. Organizations can choose the right software to manage and protect their data while also simplifying backup administration, improving efficiency, delivering scalable capacity, and enabling end-user self-service.

The Spectrum Protect Operations Center and native VMware and Hyper-V integration deliver breakthrough visibility and ease of use for backup administrators, reducing the level of expertise required. Backups and snapshots are easy to configure, schedule and monitor, and restores of individual objects or whole VMs are fast, flexible and easy. VMware end-users can restore individual files with the new Self Service Portal. Service levels can be increased as needed, minimizing complexity.

A single IBM Spectrum Protect instance can scale to protect thousands of VMs and up to a petabyte of data. Advanced agents are available for email, databases and SAP, including SAP HANA. Advanced, policy-driven replication capabilities provide flexible on- and off-site retention policies as well as rapid disaster recovery and hot standby.
