With IBM StorageProtect Snapshot, snapshots of storage systems can be created to back up and restore data. It does not matter if the database is a few GB or many TB, as the snapshot functionality of the storage infrastructure is used.


It supports enterprise database applications such as DB2 databases and Oracle databases, as well as SAP systems based on these databases. In addition, VMWare ESX based virtual machines can be protected in this way. IBM Storage Protect Snapshot seamlessly integrates with the IBM Storage Protect family and can offload the data to any storage media supported by IBM Storage Protect Server.


Our consultants have many years of experience installing, operating and administering IBM Storge Protect Snapshot. We have used this knowledge to develop our own solution for the administration of ISPS Snapshot, the ISPSManager.
