IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Other Advice

I would recommend this solution for others who are looking at buying a data recovery and backup solution. But this product is not just for backup and recovery. This is far bigger than that. Backup and recovery is only one component of this product, as it also offers data to life-cycle management. I rate this a nine out of ten. View full review »

My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is to be open-minded when checking the infrastructure and technology, and then see whether this solution will be the best one for them. The biggest lesson that I have learned from this solution is that project planning is key. You have to plan ahead for all of the various scenarios. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

As far as advice for people who are thinking about using the product, the product is excellent and it works. I can recommend using it and that you can be satisfied. On a scale of one to ten where one is worst and ten is best, I give the product an eight. The biggest reason why this is an eight and not a ten is the same issues with the GUI interface and that it could be easier to use. View full review »
