Many businesses are struggling to keep up with data volumes that are growing exponentially. Most companies simply don’t have the resources to deal with it, and quick-fix solutions, like buying more storage capacity, are no longer working. Factor in that more data equals longer backups and longer restore times, and a solution seems hard to come by. That is, until you introduce IBM into the equation.
An IBM Storage Management, Backup and Recovery solution like Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) [now IBM Spectrum Protect] can help. This family of products helps organizations:
- Efficiently manage and slow the growth of storage through data deduplication, compression, space management and archiving
- Better manage existing storage by identifying data that is no longer needed
- Improve IT service levels by providing enhanced application availability
- Provide a more unified approach to managing data to help reduce data loss, as well as reduce capital and operating costs
Tivoli Storage Manager [IBM Spectrum Protect] is a comprehensive data protection solution for both physical and virtual server environments via a single point of control. Because it is highly scalable, managing up to 4 billion data objects in a single Tivoli Storage Manager server, it can help protect computers running a variety of different operating systems, on hardware ranging from notebooks to mainframe computers that connect together through the Internet, wide area networks (WANs), local area networks (LANs) or storage area networks (SANs). Its unified management, intelligent data move-and-store techniques, and comprehensive, policy-based automation work together to help increase data protection and potentially decrease time and administration costs.
