The volume and intensity of cyber-threats are rising at an alarming rate, with increasing negative operational, financial, and reputational impacts to those affected.  In response, IBM Storage is combining the data resiliency capabilities of two market leaders, IBM Spectrum Protect Plus and IBM FlashSystem, to provide superior performance and comprehensive data resilience for all your data storage needs.

Today IBM announced a special offer; when you buy an IBM FlashSystem entry model (5015, 5035, or 5200), you get the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus data resilience technology at a prescriptive discounted rate expressly designed to help clients protect the entire array regardless of capacity.

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus is a modern data resilience solution that provides recovery, replication, retention, and reuse for VMs, databases, applications, file systems, SaaS workloads, and containers on-premises or in multi-cloud environments. Building on the data resiliency capabilities in the IBM FlashSystem, customers can achieve six 9’s of availability, encryption, snapshots, and remote, multi-site replication.

The addition of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus allows users to: 

  • Deliver unified data resilience for physical, virtual, and containerized workloads

  • Protect databases hosted on-premises and across leading cloud platforms 

  • Streamline operations with an agentless architecture

  • Simplify management with SLA-based policies and a centralized dashboard that enables secure self-service with role-based access control (RBAC)

  • Utilize a proactive catalog and global search to find data quickly

  • Automate and simplify backup administrative tasks with REST APIs

The powerful combination of IBM FlashSystem and IBM Spectrum Protect Plus provides cost-effective data resilience, data compliance, data reuse, and disaster recovery for on-premises and cloud-based deployments.

This announcement exemplifies IBM’s continued commitment to helping organizations protect their most valuable asset, their data.  IBM’s FlashSystem functionality is enhanced when clients add the data movement and efficiency capabilities of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus to create a highly resilient IT infrastructure environment that provides end-to-end data protection and a great range of architectural flexibility.
