STORServer, a provider of proven enterprise data backup solutions, today announces the release of its converged data protection appliances leveraging IBM Spectrum® Protect Plus. Providing a method to simplify data protection, the STORServer appliances use IBM Spectrum Protect Plus, designed for easy setup, management and recovery.
Created for virtual machine (VM) backups and administrators, IBM Spectrum Protect Plus helps users focus on their most important tasks, such as data availability, control and management, instead of learning how to operate a complicated backup tool. In fact, IBM Spectrum Protect Plus can be set up in just minutes and protect data in as little as one hour.
This new line of converged data protection appliances from STORServer complements the company’s commitment to providing simplified data backup to organizations that need to protect data in cloud, virtualized and data center environments.
IBM recently highlighted this new data protection appliance in its blog post on March 21.
“Today’s VM environments present several unique data protection and recovery challenges for administrators and their organizations,” said Bill Smoldt, president and CEO of STORServer. “Our new converged data protection appliances bring the simplified user experience of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus into our our award-winning appliances to help users save valuable time and resources when managing and protecting the precious data in their VM environments.”
The appliance hardware platforms can be configured with several different software configurations:
- IBM Spectrum Protect only;
- IBM Spectrum Protect Plus only;
- IBM Spectrum Protect and Spectrum Protect Plus running as virtual machines on the same platform;
- an IBM Spectrum Protect vSnap storage server, for large environments requiring > 500TB of backup storage.
