About the STORServer Converged Data Protection Appliance
STORServer’s Converged Data Protection Appliance opens the market to compete against other virtual backup products. IBM Spectrum Protect Plus provides modern data protection technologies such as instant restore and recovery, simple to understand SLA protection and monitoring all while bringing the capability to integrate with IBM Spectrum Protect for advanced data protection and storage.
IBM Spectrum Protect integration allows long-term offload of backup copies for data governance and compliance requirements. Data can be copied directly from IBM Spectrum Protect Plus to IBM Spectrum Protect. From there is can be moved to any of the storage tiers supported by Spectrum Protect, including disk, tape devices, and multiple cloud data store, including IBM Cloud Object Storage. Recovery from any of these tiers is a single step operation. Clients have the ability to recover from Spectrum Protect or Spectrum Protect Plus.
Depending on data protection requirements, these appliances can be configured with several different software options: IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Only, IBM Spectrum Protect Only, IBM Spectrum Protect Plus and Spectrum Protect, running as virtual machines on the same platform, or an IBM Spectrum Protect vSnap storage server for large environments requiring >500TB of backup storage.
Having our newest solution recognized in this way by IBM is something we are very proud of. We look forward to enabling our customers with these latest capabilities.
