Spectrum Protect is a great product. It works great. It was easy to deploy and configuration was done within 1/2 an hour. I was surprised by the easy installation. Now we do more backups with Spectrum Protect Plus. Workload with Spectrum Protect Plus. Backups are running much faster and easier. I can meet my SLA and management is very pleased with deployment of Spectrum Protect Plus. We are exploring more and more every day.
  • 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

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.
