IBM Spectrum Protect 8.1.9 and SPP 10.1.5 : Cloud , Cyber Security and Data Compliance Features

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus uses the Container Storage Interface (CSI) to initiate and persist snapshots for Kubernetes Persistent Volume Claims (PVC) by using Ceph block storage. An application developer uses the native Kubernetes command line (kubectl) to perform this function in a self-service manner and can create Kubernetes-aware backup scheduling automation. The back up Service Level Agreements (SLAs) in IBM Spectrum Protect Plus provide control for scheduling, snapshot retention, and copy to vSnap
IBM Spectrum Protect Plus provides backup and recovery for Microsoft Exchange Online and Microsoft OneDrive. It drives operational efficiency and helps ensure compliance by managing and retaining mailboxes, calendars, contacts, and shared folders as part of an overall data protection solution.
This functionality in IBM Spectrum Protect simplifies the process of meeting compliancy requirements by enabling clients to place one or more retention holds on data in a retention set for a set period of time.
IBM Spectrum Protect now enables clients to put extra protection and data reuse on their data by requiring dual authorization to prevent data from being deleted inadvertently or intentionally by an unauthorized or rogue administrator.
IBM Spectrum Protect Plus deployment in VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Service (AWS) provides lifecycle management and data protection for clients' virtual machines that run in VMware Cloud on AWS
IBM Spectrum Protect Plus leverages incremental-forever backup technology to streamline offloads of all backups (including VMs and databases) from vSnap to IBM Spectrum Protect, eliminating the dependency on IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments. This delivers a unified data protection policy, all managed by the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus service level agreements (SLAs).
IBM Spectrum Protect Plus offers additional protection by enabling offload of backups (including VMs and databases) from the vSnap server to on-premises object storage or to public cloud-based storage for long-term data protection and disaster recovery. IBM Cloud Object Storage, IBM Cloud Object Storage System, Amazon Web Services S3, and Microsoft Azure Blob are supported. Retention setting for WORM-policy enabled IBM Cloud Object Storage and IBM Cloud Object Storage System is also supported.

PowerM ExaaS Spectrum Protect and Spectrum Protect Plus Assessment

Data protection and recovery is more challenging than ever, often involving solutions from multiple vendors to meet the requirements of today’s heterogeneous environments. However, a proliferation of data protection products can increase complexity, leading to higher total costs and less confidence in the ability to recover data every time. IBM Spectrum Protect provides a single platform for managing backups for virtual and physical machines, and cloud data. PowerM ExaaS-SP provide a full spectrum of online and onsite professional services that will help you to take advantage of modern capabilities, such as scalable deduplication, cloud storage access, HA and advanced data copy management and protection

The Spectrum Protect Plus server, the brains of the operation, that lives either on prem or in the cloud, uses API calls, no agents, to talk to the hypervisor, container or application to create a low impact, backup to the vSnap Repository.  Here compression and deduplication can be added for additional storage efficiency.

Once the data copy has been made, for any and all use cases, the data recovery / reuse data workflow is the same.  If data needs to be recovered – it is put back to the system which it came from.  Should the data be required for any of the data reuse options, the methodology is the exact same, it is just recovered in a different environment, just as easy and just as fast.

The Modern Data Protection Platform provided by IBM is built around 2 key fundamentals:

  • First, data is created a number of different ways between traditional applications to hypervisors through scale-out applications containers or on the cloud.
  • Second – you have the ability to store backup data in a number of different repositories to help control costs as well as RTO performance.
Data protection trends:
  • Ability to recover data in the event of data loss or corruption or the general availability of data.
  •  Data reuse: more and more clients want and need the ability to take advantage of the data that lives in their backup silo for more than just recovery in the event of system or data loss and use this data for multiple use cases including, analytics, reporting, and DevOps.
  • Number one driver of data to the cloud is backup or data protection.
  • Need to use AI tools across this data in order to make more intelligent business decisions without impacting production.
