  • Can meet my SLA
  • File Level Restore
  • Can clone the VM for reuse
  • Just learning and exploring now
Cannot back up Linux or Windows cluster. If Spectrum Protect Plus could back up physical and AIX it will be much better. So we do not have to use two products. It would be nice to have one dashboard for Spectrum Protect and Spectrum Protect Plus. AIX integration would be more ideal. So far it is good product

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Review: "SPP will quickly get you protecting your virtual environment."

Currently I am working with several customers considering Spectrum Protect Plus for their environments from healthcare to manufacturing businesses.
  • Simple to get up and running.
  • Touchless agents for SQL, Exchange and DB2 take the complexity out of setup and use.
  • Now integrated to offload to Spectrum Protect to provide a more robust DR strategy.
  • Incorporation of more touchless agents for physical servers.
  • Direct offload to tape - instead of requiring Spectrum Protect.
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.
