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.

Scalable performance

IBM Spectrum Protect servers can expand to manage billions of objects per server, so there is less disruption and complexity as backup workloads grow. As data grows, IBM Spectrum Protect backups can be augmented with advanced agents and snapshots that can reduce backup and restore times for large applications and virtual machines. For example, IBM Spectrum Protect Snapshot can back up 500 VMware virtual machine images in as little as seven minutes.

Multi-site replication

IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition 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.

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.
