Overall Satisfaction with IBM Spectrum Protect

The product is being used to back up the information used by the company's information systems that support different business processes. Currently, it addresses the retention of data that are vital for the administration of the company.
  • Organized management of backup copies.
  • Stability in the operation of the tool.
  • Diversity in backup policy configuration.
  • The tool administration platform must be improved.
  • You should look for simplicity for the configuration complexity of suite products.
  • The online viewing tool should be more stable.
  • Because it is a support tool to improve the assurance of information, an ROI is not easily divisible.
IBM Spectrum Protect is related to the other IBM Spectrum products listed because it is part of the suite and is also the main backup product for backup and restoration of information. With Veeam it is related as they present competence in different lines of technology, often the integration of both tools can be the best solution for clients looking for a successful backup strategy.
Suitable scenarios:
  • Backup copies of database systems with high capacity.
  • Replication between Spectrum Protect systems works very well.
  • Scenarios where a lot of information is handled.
Scenarios that should be improved:
  • The backup of virtual environments must be improved.
  • Dependencies must be reviewed with products for which Snapshots are configured.
