Key Advantages of IBM Spectrum Protect

Proven best practices

IBM Spectrum Protect deployments, IBM blueprints eliminate guesswork by providing tested and proven best practices and guidance that help customer’s meet SLAs and achieve great performance.

Data replication

IBM Spectrum Protect enables backup data to be replicated on an incremental, scheduled or per-client basis from one IBM Spectrum Protect server to another. Replication is policy-driven, so onsite and offsite retention policies can be different. Plus, replication can be performed with deduplicated data, which improves network efficiency. It can also be scheduled during relatively quiet times to help reduce the impact on production applications.

Built-in cloud integration

IBM Spectrum Protect 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 data is secure.

Comprehensive data protection

IBM Spectrum Protect 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, enabling fast, flexible restores from primary and remote recovery sites to help recover individual items, complex systems and entire data centers.

Integration with IBM Spectrum Protect Plus

It is easily deployed as a virtual appliance and simplifies data recovery, replication, and offload to multicloud environments, as well as the management of data copies for things such as DevOps, analytics, reporting and much more.

Data lifecycle automation

Retention sets provide data lifecycle automation via flexible policy rules that leverage existing operational recovery data to satisfy long-term retention requirements, eliminating the need to ingest additional copies. Integrate HSM data in web applications to monitor control of file server disk usage.

Ransomware detection

IBM Spectrum Protect provides security notifications for potential ransomware attacks. Two key authorization for administrator commands offers tighter security and requires dual authorization to prevent data loss. After client backup sessions, statistics are analyzed for signs of ransomware infection. If signs are present, administrators are notified, and a warning message is displayed in the Operations Center.
