IBM Cloud Backup

Any time, all day, I would advocate the use of IBM Cloud Backup, as it has excellent storage space with structured security measures, and suitable business functionalities. Further, no big struggle as the app is online, hence, remotely accessible. The stability and the strength that the application has is another assurance that all information is in the safer hands, for all the authorized business users.

I think that larger environments with a higher percentage of physical systems that require backup along side the virutalization environment sticking with a single backup/archive solution such as Spectrum Protect with Spectrum Protect for VE is still the most efficient use of administrators' time and energy.For small shops that are looking for ease of use - this is a perfect fit.

Cons

IBM Cloud Backup

  • The set prices for the product is a problem.
  • Secondly, IBM Cloud Backup customer help should be more speedy.

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus

  • Incorporation of more touchless agents for physical servers.
  • Direct offload to tape - instead of requiring Spectrum Protect.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud Backup

Pricing and how easy it is to use. We use other IBM products in our office and it is nice to have everything on one network. The experience for users and managers is better, even new employees who can learn quickly. It also makes it more affordable for us.
