Simplify data protection for virtual environments
IBM® Spectrum Protect™ for Virtual Environments (formerly IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager for Virtual Environments) protects VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines. It enables you to safeguard the massive amounts of information that virtual machines generate.
IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments safely moves backup workloads to a centralized IBM Spectrum Protect server and enables administrators to create backup policies or restore virtual machines with just a few clicks. It allows you to protect data without a traditional backup window.
IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments:
Improves efficiency with deduplication, incremental “forever” backup
Simplifies backups and restores for VMware
Integrates with VMware snapshots and OpenStack clouds
Flexible recovery and copy options from image-level backups
Eliminates overhead with optimized virtual machine backup
IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments works with IBM Spectrum Protect backup servers and IBM Spectrum Protect Snapshot to enable optimized backup and recovery for data hosted on virtual machines and the underlying physical server infrastructure.
