Reduce the complexity and cost of data protection and retention.

Data has become integral to business decision making and basic operations, from product development to sales and customer management. This fact means that any threat to ongoing access to data - ranging from recovering from natural disasters to data corruption by hackers – can pose a huge risk to your business. To help address these risks, IBM offers effective, secure solutions that help address growing data protection demands while reducing operational complexity.

Backup and recovery

You backup your data so it can be recovered/restored in case of data loss or corruption – your business can’t afford to not have key data available. But ongoing data growth places more and more demands on backup processes. IBM offers a wide range of effective, efficient and secure backup and recovery solutions to ensure that key business information is always available.

Continuous operations

According to recent research, a one-hour IT system outage can cost a business $1.1M. Your IT systems need to be able to prevent and avoid outages and recover from them quickly, IBM offers a range of reliable, high-performance solutions to ensure that a business can remain operational through component failures or significant disasters.

Control and automation

By automating management and enforcement of storage policies, you can keep storage infrastructure in its desired state efficiently. This can help you improve service quality, improve data protection, recovery, reliability and integrity while reducing ongoing staff intervention. Automated lifecycle management tools can help you meet information retention mandates, automate provisioning, backup and archive to optimize performance, utilization, lower costs and build agility.

Retention and compliance

Today, significant amounts of data must be saved to meet business or legal requirements. As the amount of information stored grows and grows, effective data archiving solutions can help you improve productivity, control both infrastructure and legal costs, and manage compliance and operational risks.
