What differentiates IBM Storage Protect from other similar products?

Reducing the load on production servers by offloading backups using Spectrum Protect Snapshot Although the product is excellent, there is still room for improvement in terms of implementation and customisation.. We've been using Spectrum Protect for a long time, and we're completely satisfied. A major weakness is a lack of ability to compete with other vendors in new areas, such as virtual machines (VMs).

What is your favorite aspect of this product?

Because of its sturdiness, it does its job quietly and effectively, but it does like to be pampered, so proper care is required to get the most out of it. Once you've figured it out, it's a piece of cake. Backup servers do not need to be rebooted on a monthly basis, at least not on AIX, which I have on some of my servers. Spectrum Protect is a one-stop shop for all your backup and restore needs; it works with anything you throw at it.

What do you dislike most about this product?

I believe the most pressing issue is the lack of compatibility between various IBM products, such as tdp and gskit, as well as issues with snapshot manager and other products like SVC. Implementation and configuration should only be attempted by those who are intimately familiar with the product, and even then, it may be difficult to uncover all of the available options.

What recommendations would you give to someone considering this product?

Although the product is very stable, it works better if it is maintained on a daily basis, like most things, like most things. We'd conduct a thorough, POC-driven evaluation to determine which product best meets our requirements. At the time we began using Spectrum protect (then known as ADSM), the backup and recovery market had only a few options to choose from. Many options are available today.

Pros

  • Reliable
  • Enables Productivity
  • Trustworthy
  • Efficient Service
