STORServer Converged Data Protection appliances arrive production-ready to connect to your network. Appliances are built on proven hardware platforms that are fine-tuned to each specific use case. Depending on your data protection requirements, these appliance platforms can be configured with several different software options:

  • IBM Spectrum Protect only
  • IBM Spectrum Protect Plus only
  • IBM Spectrum Protect and Spectrum Protect Plus running as virtual machines on the same platform
  • IBM Spectrum Protect vSnap storage server for large environments

As a stand-alone application, IBM Spectrum Protect Plus uses a block-level, incremental forever backup model that results in fast, low-impact backups, whether using VMware or Hyper-V.

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Server can be configured to backup directly to Spectrum Protect or offload a copy from vSnap. From there it can be moved to any storage tiers supported by IBM Spectrum Protect, including disk, a wide range of tape devices, multiple cloud data stores, and object storage, including IBM Cloud Object Storage.

Recovery from any of these tiers is a single-step operation. You have the ability to recover from IBM Spectrum Protect or IBM Spectrum Protect Plus.

STORServer converged data appliances are backed by your choice of support options. All support levels gain access to our certified backup consultants as a single point of contact for problem resolution.
