Simplify data protection for virtual and cloud environments

IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager for Virtual Environments protects VMware® vSphere virtual machines by offloading backup workloads to a centralized IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server for safe keeping. Administrators can create backup policies or restore virtual machines with just a few clicks. It enables your organization to protect data without the need for a traditional backup window. It allows you to safeguard the massive amounts of information that virtual machines generate without impacting the physical resources of the VMware server.
