IBM Spectrum Protect Review

It scales well for the amount of clients that we use with it

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is supporting DB2 environment. We have about a couple hundred servers that we support for our SAP environment. It is one of the most critical applications that we have.

How has it helped my organization?

IBM Spectrum Protect has improved my organization with its total support of IBM products.

What is most valuable?

It is an IBM product. With SAP, you are using IBM software to protect it. DB2 and AIX servers are both IBM. Therefore, it is a total IBM solution, which helps.

What needs improvement?

At the moment, it meets DB2's needs sufficiently.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is very good. It used to be rocky years ago. It has been a very good solution, and very rarely do we have problems with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have worked with it for 20 years now. It scales well for the amount of clients that we use with it. The clients have been very good about keeping up with the technology changes.

It should meet our future needs. We do not plan to grow it at this time as we just use it for SAP. 

How is customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is very good. They are very good about getting back to you and trying to help you work through issues. I generally contact support online versus calling in, but that is just my preference.

How was the initial setup?

It was easy to set up/rebuild.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

This was before my time with the company.

What other advice do I have?

We have a cloud strategy using Amazon. 

For leveraging cloud, we are in the beginning stages. Therefore, we are using Avamar.

Our non-cloud/on-premise infrastructure consists of servers.
