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.

For people that already use Microsoft products, and need to add a protection option to their environment, this is a great tool. It'll help, maybe even with a lower price, compared to other tools. Usually, the price is higher, but if you already have a contract with Microsoft, the price is usually is lower in that scenario.

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.

I think they're very good tools, but Data Protector has lots of client options, while with Microsoft Data Protection Manager the focus is windows. But, Microsoft Data Protection Manager is much better in a virtual machine (Hyper-V world) and windows servers. If this is your scenario, maybe Microsoft Data Protection Manager is your choice. But, if you need to mix between Windows and Linux servers, maybe Data Protector could be your choice also.
