In this article, we would like to introduce the three pillars of IBM Modern Data Protection and show how our customers can benefit from modernizing their Data Protection infrastructure.
IBM has taken its Data Protection strategy in new directions: Modern Data Protection.
Through three pillars of this concept, IBM offers a wide range of tools that make it possible to find suitable data protection approaches in complex landscapes.
Self Protect refers to the S3 gateway of the Spectrum Protect server. Via the Object Agent available since version 8.1.10, S3Api operations can be used to write and read data stored in the Spectrum Protect Server. Thus, all applications that have implemented an export of data via S3 can also send this data to a Spectrum Protect Server. Since the data is stored in a container pool or on tape, multiple copies of the object data can be created. This creates unique opportunities to use Spectrum Protect as a data store.
IBM offers a diverse portfolio to address different needs of customers and to establish an efficient data protection strategy in complex infrastructures. In addition, the use of new functionalities can mean potential savings by reducing complexity. Depending on the needs, a security gain can be achieved by means of adapted concepts: by revising authorization concepts according to the minimal principle. This is an effective building block in the prevention of ransomware attacks and attacks from internal sources.
Markus Stumpf is Head of Data Protection Services and Business Development Manager at Empalis Consulting GmbH. As an expert in data protection solutions such as IBM Spectrum Protect, Veeam or Cohesity and with over 20 years of experience in implementation, operation and training (especially with IBM Spectrum Protect), he is happy to answer all your questions.
