Recovery Systems that also restore value

Successful backup systems come from two things: good processes and good technology. IBM has exceptional capabilities in both. A telecommunications company in Europe saw just that when, IBM and one of our business partners implemented a backup and recovery system, improving back up speed by 80%1. And we can do the same for you, providing outsourced, managed service and cloud backup services. We combine best practices from leading technology to help you get more value from your backup investments.

Consider IBM Storwize V7000 and XIV Storage systems. With Tivoli Flash Copy Manager, either of these systems can simplify snapshots, provide better migration capabilities and perform restores without a Storage Admin. That can save you money, not to mention downtime. Plus, Storwize v7000 has demonstrated over 47%2 savings in administrator time and 31%2 less complexity while performing the same tasks as other top brand storage systems.

As for XIV, it can lower IT costs over 65%3 and has the world's fastest regenerate/re-protect time. It is customer-proven and a high performance storage system, ideal for cloud and virtualized environments.
