What IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management can do for you

IBM® Spectrum™ Copy Data Management makes copies available to data consumers when and where they need them, without creating unnecessary copies or leaving unused copies on valuable storage. IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management is an ‘in-place’ copy data management software that enables orchestration of application-aware snapshot and replication management for storage environments. It catalogs copy data from across your local and hybrid cloud and off-site cloud infrastructure, identifies duplicates, and compares copy requests to existing copies. Data consumers can use the self-service portal to create the copies they need, enabling business agility. Copy processes and workflows are automated to ensure consistency and reduce complexity. IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management rapidly deploys as an agentless VM for faster time to value.
