What IBM Spectrum Storage Suite can do for your business

Improve the way you manage, protect and store data with unlimited access to several IBM software-defined storage products and IBM Cloud Object Storage. IBM Spectrum Storage™ Suite offers licensing on a flat, cost-per-TB basis, making pricing predictable as your capacity grows. You can save up to 40 percent compared with licensing the products separately. Non-production use of the software in test environments is included.  By sharing the same, easy-to-use interface, IBM Spectrum Storage makes SDS deployment easier and more cost-effective than ever before.


Simplify financial planning

Straightforward per-TB pricing for the entire suite is related to the amount of storage capacity, not the type of storage or how it is used.

Support business growth

There are no licensing headaches when changing from one type of storage to another or from one data type to another.

Enable rapid testing

The license includes all members of the Spectrum Storage family, so there's no delay waiting for procurement of required software. Non-production use of the software in test environments is included.

Help reduce risk of error

All members of the IBM Spectrum Storage Suite use a consistent user interface, which reduces needs for training and helps avoid errors caused by differences in product interfaces.

Simplify support

All members of the suite are designed to work together. Plus, experience IBM world-wide support for this entire comprehensive SDS solution.
