IBM Spectrum Protect Plus is modern data protection solution designed for file, VM and database protection and recovery. It also enables the reuse of those secondary datasets for other workloads. It can be implemented as a standalone solution or it can be integrated with IBM Spectrum Protect (see the separate Spectrum Protect Product Brief) for advanced features and to offload copies for long term retention.
Ease of use and management simplicity are key design aspects of Spectrum Protect Plus. IT admins can deploy it using a self-contained virtual appliance (OVA) that comes pre-configured. It uses an agentless approach to simplify management.
Sources for data protection are the virtual machine datastores. Storage for the protected data is managed by a vSnap server which runs in a virtual machine and manages the attached storage devices. The vSnap Server can store and manage backup data on block storage, IBM Cloud Object Storage, and public cloud (IBM Cloud) as well as VTLs and tape devices supported through the integration with Spectrum Protect. Data is stored in native formats to allow for rapid restores.
