What is most valuable?

Disk-based implementation of a data protection solution for multiple sites, which is a better fit for my complex data protection needs.

How has it helped my organization?

The D2D2T archive of my PACS data improved after I put Spectrum Protect 8.1.4 into production.

What needs improvement?

They need to reduce the complexity and make the learning curve easier.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If you do not have deep pockets, don't come to IBM.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I don't see moving from TSM to Spectrum Protect as a solution swap, I see it as just re-branding.

What other advice do I have?

Be careful what you wish for, and make sure the new solution will fit into your current IT environment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

EMC Avamar and Cohesity were also in the PoC.
