Protecting the VMware Environment with IBM Spectrum Protect
Spectrum Computing

Redpaper, published 25 Dec 2017, last updated 8 Jan 2018

While backup is a topic of much discussion, development, and strategy, the name of the game is rapid recovery. Given the explosive growth of data in our Client environments, there is a need to provide solutions to our Clients that meet their recovery time objective and recovery point objective needs. Traditional backups of files, databases, and similar objects sent across networks (LAN or SAN) to backup servers provide a degree of recoverability, but the speed of backup and recovery is constrained by resource capacity (server, network, storage, and so on). This results in longer backup and ... [more]
