SPIR is Instant Recovery for Spectrum Protect. It sends snapshots using space efficiently and blocking backups to the Spectrum Protect server. It provisions the snapshot from the backup server to the same or new server near instantly.
This solution has improved our organization through better file and database recovery.
The fact that we can take the backup straight onto tape is the most valuable feature.
The most valuable features are compression and de-duplication.
The best part of this solution is that it just works.
The product is very stable.
It is a very mature product.
Incremental forever: This feature helps us reduce backup time and backup storage space.
All other products contain the same features, but when I'm backing up an IBM Power server I feel more comfortable with IBM Spectrum Protect because it's the same vendor.
We optimize our costs of media and storage use, thanks to the Incremental Forever backup. The TDP software provides us many ways to protect our data, so we don't need to use monstrous scripts for doing backups now.
The software-defined ability to do data reduction through deduplication and compression, as well as being able to replicate data to a cloud container.
It saves you a lot of storage.
