The outstanding storage capacity, organized security measures, and appropriate business features of IBM Cloud Backup make it something I'd recommend at any time of day or night. Furthermore, the software is online and hence easily accessible from a distance. The application's stability and strength are further assurances that all authorized business users are in safe hands.

Good for daily operational backups and their replications and areas like VM backup, when it comes to resting the backups in a cloud environment especially features like BYOL is an edge to IBM over its near competitors. On the other hand, a lot of scopes to improve to have native/application-aware backups for modern applications like AI and microservices.

      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.

      IBM Spectrum Protect Plus doesn't allow taking backup of the Meditech HIMS application, due to the unique nature of the database and its functionality. As it's a special case, the vendor supports only a few fully integrated backup solutions which resulted in using Bridgehead as a trustable backup option specific to the application.
