IBM Spectrum Protect Review

Helps to satisfy our data protection needs but cloud support should be added

What is our primary use case?

Our primary uses for this solution are Disaster Recovery and operational data protection.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution helps us to meet all of our data protection needs.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are compression and deduplication.

What needs improvement?

In the next version of the solution, I would like to see cloud support.  Specifically, I'd like to see this product leverage the native data protection services in the major cloud providers (AWS, Azure) and not require an agent to be installed.  Since access to the hypervisor is not available in an IaaS environment the native services must be leveraged.  Many competing solutions already do this.

For how long have I used the solution?

Twenty years.
