IBM Storage Protect

IBM Storage® Protect is the data protection software of choice for STORServer Appliance solutions. IBM and STORServer technologies work in concert to save you time, money and resources. IBM Storage Protect provides scalable data protection across a wide spectrum of workloads including physical file servers, virtual environments, and popular applications.

Simplified Backup Administration

Pre-installed on appliances, STORServer® Console (SSC) enables configuration and management of the IBM Storage Protect server with a single, intuitive user interface. The simplified console reduces the level of expertise required to configure hardware, policies, and schedules and provides customizable monitoring, reporting, and real-time notifications of server events. Additional STORServer software is available to extend the capabilities of IBM Storage Protect to include platforms and applications not otherwise available for protection.

Cloud Integration

Backup to the cloud or backup in the cloud with IBM Storage Protect built-in cloud integration. Container storage pools enable external cloud and object storage on popular cloud environments and include in-line deduplication and encryption.

Scalable Performance

Whether small or large, an organization needs reliable data-protection capabilities. The IBM Storage Protect server can expand as needed to manage billions of objects per server, minimizing complexities in growing systems.

Complete Data Protection

Advanced data protection capability for current and next-generation environments with data that is easily replicated to off-site facilities. Restore from primary and remote recovery sites.

Multi-site Replication

IBM Storage Protect Extended Edition enables backup data to be replicated on an incremental, scheduled, or per-client basis from one server to another.

Advantages:
Managed archives as a separate function from backup retention policies

Benefits:
Ability to easily protect and manage documents that need to be kept for a certain period of time

Advanced Data Reduction

Advantages:
Combines progressive-incremental backup, source and target data deduplication, compression, and tape management to provide best-in-class data reduction

Benefits:
Reduces the costs of data storage, environmental requirements, and administration

Air-gapped Malware Protection

Advantages:
Store a copy of data with an air-gap and/or on immutable storage to prevent potential corruption by malware or ransomware

Benefits:
Protects recovery data from damage from malware and ransomware
