IBM Cloud Pak® for Data can be protected with IBM Storage Fusion™. This IBM Redpaper publication covers backing up IBM Cloud Pak for Data with a non-disruptive (online) backup and then restoring to an alternate cluster. During an online backup, normal runtime operations in the Cloud Pak for Data cluster continue while the backup completes. The backup process includes creating policies and automating backups in IBM Storage Fusion, then protecting Cloud Pak for Data, protecting IBM Storage Fusion namespace and the IBM Storage Protect Plus (SPP) catalog. Backup and restore is supported from IBM Storage Fusion HCI to IBM Spectrum Fusion software as well as from IBM Storage Fusion Software to IBM Storage Fusion HCI.
IBM Spectrum Fusion HCI and IBM Spectrum Fusion have become IBM Storage Fusion HCI System and IBM Storage Fusion. This edition uses some of the IBM Spectrum brand names and will be updated with the next edition.
IBM Spectrum Fusion must be at 2.3 or higher with “Backup” service installed. If using IBM Storage Fusion 2.5.2, the “Backup (Legacy)” service should be used.
