Lab Services consultants can help you build data-driven multicloud solutions with the wide range of hybrid storage options from IBM Systems. Our team provides services to ensure optimal implementation and seamless integration of these solutions.

Cyber Resiliency

With the increasing risks and impacts associated with cyberattacks, should an attack happen to you, we ensure you have planned, and are able to detect and recover features such as Safeguarded Copy on DS8000. You can also confidently repurpose or dispose of storage systems through our IBM Certified Secure Data Overwrite services.

Storage Strategy and Optimization

As next generation workloads emerge, both new and traditional data continue growing. That’s why storage services consultants can help you modernize and transform storage infrastructures to support your initiatives while also containing cost and reducing complexity. Our Storage Infrastructure Optimization (SIO) and Data Pattern Analytics (DPA) storage engagements are tailored for your needs and can provide a complete storage strategy or tactical recommendations to address business and technology requirements, giving you an optimized and simplified agile infrastructure.

Modern Data Protection

We help you use your storage infrastructure to its fullest by deploying IBM Spectrum Storage Suite.  You gain insight into how systems are really being utilized, allowing faster decision making and customized reporting. We help keep data safe by deploying IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Protect Plus, and deliver efficient infrastructure management to simplify and automate storage provisioning, capacity management, availability monitoring, and reporting with IBM Spectrum Control Storage Insights, a cloud-based service.
